By Deborah LeBlanc

One of the wonderful things about the Girlfriends Cyber Circuit is the diversity of talent in the group. Deborah LeBlanc, for instance, is a highly-acclaimed, award winning writer in the horror genre. Here's are just some of the raves her latest book, MORBID CURIOSITY, has received:

“One of the best new voices of supernatural thrillers!”
--Cemetery Dance

“It’s now official: Deborah LeBlanc has become a master not only of good spooky stories, but also of crafting great characters to fill them!”
--Horror Fiction Review

“An imaginative chiller. Riveting!”
--Publishers Weekly

“Ms. LeBlanc’s tale is a powerful, gripping read, with an ever increasing intensity that forces you to the end without laying the novel aside.”
--Who Dunnit

I'm in awe of a writer who can generate that kind of enthusiasm from these tough critics. And now here's a brief synopsis of this extraordinary novel:

It seemed like the answer to Haley’s prayers. The most popular girl in her high school promised Haley that her life would change forever if only she performed certain dark rituals. And if Haley can convince her twin sister to participate, their power will double. Together they will be able to summon mystical entities they never dared dream of. But these are powerful, uncontrollable forces, forces that can kill—forces that demand to be fed . . .

If that doesn't whet your appetite enough, check out the trailer for the book:
