Renee C. Leighabout this book: Abandoned Lives is a book about a big city girl moving into a haunted house in a small town. It does have a love story, but the primary focus is on the horror she faces. This book was pretty much my baby. I spent a lot more time on it than my previous two because I wanted to make sure that my scary scenes were just that... scary. I actually got inspired to write it from my own home. The house I live in has some really creepy rooms in it, including a secret room in the back of one of the closets that freaks me out big time. All of my books are set near the town I live in, because I love this area. It's so beautiful and there's so much mystery shrouding the Blue Ridge Mountains that it makes for a great setting for horror.
The title of this book actually came about due to a contest. I love all of my readers and held a contest for someone to help me come up with a title. One girl suggested Abandoned Lives, and it just clicked. There was no debate once I saw that title. I had a name for the book and was ready to get it published. The cover, however... the house on the cover was chosen before I ever wrote a sentence. I wanted to make sure the description matched the cover. Same with the girl. I saw her picture and she just fit with what I wanted, so I put them together and it just worked for me.
There's a lot about this book that just seemed to click as soon as I saw or heard it. I even went to a local real estate office to get some info before I wrote, in an effort to make it a little more accurate. Or as accurate as it can be, considering that I was writing about the supernatural. I hope everyone enjoys the results. As I said, this book is my baby and I love it.
