Though my books are not very creepy, or gory for Halloween fun, this is a scene is from Deadman’s Blood and it might make you jump:
There nestled snugly among the waist high grass and wildflowers she spied the potting shed. Its boards were bleached a gray-white and seemed in need of some attention. It was nice sized, maybe eight feet by eight feet and had at least one window that she could see from her angle. The rusty latch that held the door closed was stubbornly keeping access from her. With a hard tug and a bit of brute force it finally relented and opened. It was a spider haven. Webs were thickly spun and draped here and there with a haphazard pattern over most everything.
Darby looked like she was dog-paddling in the air as she made her way to a table where she found some leather gloves, a dusty old straw hat, a sturdy basket, and a trowel. She grabbed these items and spied a shovel leaning in a ‘v’ between the table and the wall, and a window above shedding shafts of glittering, dusty light among the shadows of the shed. Just as she reached for the shovel, a weathered face appeared in the window, making Darby jump and squeal in her shock. She held her hand to her chest as adrenaline went rushing through her body. She grabbed all her items and headed out of the shed to greet the stranger.
And below is a scene from Blood Moon from the series when Rachel Keaton casts a spell that brings her dead relatives corpses crawling out of the walls:
Darby was pleased with how things were going, being able to stop all the attacks, but she saw a look in Rachel’s face she didn’t like, and Sally turned her head quickly towards her sister as if in fear. Rachel raised her arms and started speaking so low that no one could make out what she was saying.
The ground started to shake and the ceiling seemed to moan and a horrific groan of what seemed to be displeasure came from the walls. Dirt started trickling from the walls and holes started to appear. A fleshless hand wiggled from the earthen wall and grabbed at Rowan’s tail, making her yelp. Blake grabbed the hand and yanked at it, revealing an unattached arm still trying to grab at nothing but air. He threw it across the room as more hands came through the walls, attached to arms and bodies, heads and legs.
Darby said, “Oh my God. She’s raised her ancestors to help her!”
Sally looked around in horror as more and more relatives emerged from the stone walls around the room. There must have been twenty or more. The bony bodies lurched and drug themselves towards Darby, Devon, Rowan, Dean, and Blake. The vampires pulled them apart and the werewolves ripped them to pieces and still they came in relentless bits and pieces. And all the while, Sally threw force fields and fire towards them while Rachel started reciting the incantation of the spell.
Overwhelmed, the vampires couldn’t kill the corpses coming at them, because there was nothing to drain, and the werewolves were tiring quickly from the ceaseless onslaught of mummified corpses and parts.
Happy Halloween to you all – Hope you enjoyed my little bits of creepiness.

As the dust settles from the destruction of the Bloodstone Heart, a small scroll that had been hidden in the hearth of the altar room for hundreds of years, reveals a prophecy that seems to be about the Larsen family.
