Meet Deborah LeBlanc!
Oh, man! This book looks scary, creepy, goosefleshy GOOD! With several critically acclaimed novels already under her belt, Girlfriends Cyber Circuit author Deborah LeBlanc is making a hit with her newest book, A House Divided. Here's the synopsis:
Keith Lafleur thinks he's cut the deal of a lifetime. The huge old, two-story house is his for the taking as long as he can move it to a new location. It's too big to move as is, but Lafleur's solution is simple: cut it in half. He has no idea, though, that by splitting the house he'll be dividing a family, a family long dead, a family that still exists in the house . . .
Angelica Batiste is a young, mentally challenged woman with a unique gift. Her mind, no more advanced than a ten-year-old child's, sees things before they happen. Not only does she see them, she draws them with extraordinary perfection.
When Angelica moves into part of an old, two-story house with her cousin and a friend, her gift suddenly turns into a terrifying power she can not control. The house feeds it. The house needs it. And only death can make it stop.

Here's what the critics are saying:
"Equal parts Edgar Allan Poe, Anne Rice and Stephen King -- with a generous helping of jambalaya and crawfish pie -- Louisiana born and bred horror maven Deborah LeBlanc's newest novel is a supernatural thriller ... With just three novels under her belt (Family Inheritance, Grave Intent and A House Divided), LeBlanc has already amassed a huge cult following. Gruesome, creepy and chock full of jaw-dropping plot twists, LeBlanc's newest is, above all else, wildly entertaining." --Paul Goat Allen
"Magnificent!" --Louisiana Libraries Magazine
"LeBlanc's prose is a flying leap into the labyrinth of madness. Her images are unforgettable." --CelebrityCafe.com
"Riveting." --Publishers Weekly
