PHOBIC Book Blitz + Giveaway

First of all, I'd like to congratulate Cortney on the release of her debut novel PHOBIC. I'm so excited to get reading it! With Halloween just around the corner, I'm craving something spooky. So without further ado, here's what PHOBIC is all about:

(Add to Goodreads)
Fifteen-year-old Piper Crenshaw knows her house is strange. It’s never needed repairs since it was built in the 1800s, and the lights flicker in response to things she says. As if those things aren’t creepy enough, it’s also the place where her mother committed murder.

To prove she’s not afraid of where she lives, Piper opens a forbidden door, which hides a staircase that leads to the ceiling. That’s when the flashbacks of the original residents from 1875 start, including a love affair between two young servants. Each vision pulls Piper deeper into not only their story, but also her house. Piper confides in her best friend, Todd, whom she's gradually falling for, but even he doesn't believe her. At least, not until her house gets axed during a prank, and the act injures Piper instead, cutting a gash the size of Texas into her stomach.

Piper realizes her house isn’t haunted—it’s alive. To sever her link to it, she must unravel the clues in the flashbacks and uncover the truth about her mother’s crime, before she becomes part of her house for good.

  1. Jaime! Thanks so much for helping spread the word!! <3

  2. Ohhhh… isn't Cortney the best??? It's such a fabulous book and I'm so excited for her!!! :)

  3. I'm not a fan of horror, but I don't know if I've given the genre a fair chance in the book world. (I say a flat "no" to horror movies...) Maybe this one could convert me!


I ♥ comments. They make me smile.☺
