Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, everyone! Today I'm participating in WinterHaven's Author Fright Festival.
Here are some of the authors participating in this event:
Marianne de Pierres, April Henry, Kate Avery Ellison, Kelly Hashway, Rachel Harris, Jamie Manning, Lea Nolan, Chloe Jacobs,  Victoria Scott, Angela Scott, Paula Weston, Anne Greenwood Brown, and Jennifer Shaw Wolf!

And in honor of this scary holiday, I thought we could all suggest books that creeped us out in some way or another. Here are some books that scared me:


The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

A Whisper to a Scream by Lauren Hammond
Fractured by Majanka Verstraete

And I have a cover reveal for you, too! Here's To Love or Die in a Steamy Reamy World by Emily White:



10 Tales of Steampunk Silliness and Spookery.

In the cozy seaside village of Steamville, New Hampshire, an unfaithful zombie, out of control werebots, succubi in corsets, and more wreak havoc in this short story collection. 

Pub Date:
December 22, 2012 on all major online retailers ($.99 for ebook/$2.99 for print)

  1. Kenneth Oppel's The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein gave me the chills and so did Variant by Robison Wells.

  2. Oh my gosh, I can't think of a book that's creeped me out. I know I've read some, just drawing a blank! Ahhh! Going to have to find something now to read in honor of the day ; )

  3. I can't think of any fiction books that creeped me out that much but one of the creepiest non-fiction books I've ever read was Helter Skelter about Charles Manson. I couldn't sleep for a month after reading that!

  4. I hope you are doing okay today, Kelly.

    I loved "The Graveyard Book." It was really fantastic. Lately, something that creeped me out is Michael Robb Mathias' "The Butcher's Boy." Happy Halloween!

    1. The Graveyard Book freaked me out on page one. :)

      I'm fine, Karen. Thanks. Power and water are back. Yay! And no damage from the storm.

  5. The Amityville Horror (the book, not the movies) gave me nightmares for days.

    I also read a book in like the fifth grade called (I think) America's Ghosts. It had Black Aggie, The Hitchhiker, ghosts in the White House, and the Bell Witch (incidentally, that house and cave are not too far from me. Scary stuff there).

    Anyway the ghost book totally freaked me out. Happy Halloween!!

  6. I love scary books. I need to write down these books I haven't read yet.

    I'm reading SEED by Ania Ahlborn right now. It's scaring the heck out of me.

  9. Fun cover! I love Neil Gaiman and his books are always spookily good. The Graveyard Book was excellent. Lots of spooky reads out there. Coraline was scary, too!

  10. Happy Halloween!

    Thanks so much for mentioning my book "Fractured". I'm glad you liked it, and that it creeped you out enough to mention it as a Halloween read! :)

  11. Happy Belated Halloween! I spent part of my day yesterday driving back from Orlando. The last scary book I read was by Dean Koontz, "From The Corner Of His Eye". Very disturbing!

  12. Have you ever read COME CLOSER by Sara Gran? It's like not just scary, but a masterclass in brilliant writing. Seriously, it's one of the greatest books ever written.
