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.

Welcome to the Phobic Book Blitz. I have been hankering for a good horror book lately and I thought Phobic sounded pretty creepy. Who doesn’t love a haunted house? Check out the teasers below to see if this book if for you. If so, enter the giveaway at the end.

 Guest Post with Teasers

by Cortney Pearson

I love teasers, and am so excited to share mine with you! PHOBIC is not only mega creepy with a great mystery surrounding the house Piper lives in…

It also involves a first-love, falling-for-best-friends love story between Piper and her neighbor and BFF, Todd.

One reviewer said, “It wasn’t a romance, but there was romance. It wasn’t a horror, but there sure was horror to be had. It was a ghost story, but it was a human story.”


In other words, it’s a good mix of both, I hope you enjoy it!

    Oooh, this sounds totally creepy… and fun! I’m going to keep my eye out for this one! The cover is really awesome! Her eyes are amazing!

  2. Carmel @ Rabid Reads

    That cover is creep-tastic, but the reviews that I’ve read all say that it’s the freakiest part of this story, and considering it’s shelved as horror that doesn’t bode well. Those teasers contradict that feedback though, so I’m torn. Thanks for the chance!

  3. Lara Denson

    She’s becoming part of the house :O Wow, don’t remember I’ve read a story like that before! Great idea!
