Are You Ready for Halloween?

Happy Halloween from Wilde and Woolly Bears copy (800x406)


I write kind of Halloween stuff--the paranormal, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, jaguar shifters, psychics, and all that stuff that goes bump in the night. With a romantic twist, of course.

You thought I skipped Halloween, didn’t you? With releasing A SEAL Wolf Christmas early!!!

But I love Halloween, watching spooky movies with my family, eating Halloween treats!

The wizard bear in the top picture and the vampire bear featured below are my own creations. My Wilde & Woolly Bears have found homes all over the world and have won first place ribbons for best dressed bears, most unique bears and best of show. They've also been featured in several magazines.



So here is a fun and easy treat to make for that Halloween night of spooky movies. Black olives cut up to look like spiders on deviled eggs! And then you can curl up with a nice Vampire romance.

What's Halloween without vampires and vampire hunters?

Huntress for Hire

She has her sights set on the worst vampire of them all…
or two…

Forbidden Love 1650 (525x800)

And she loved him in a past life, but now the huntress has him on her terminal list.
I was outside watering and ran into him! Never seen one here before. Just the little tiny lizards that run all over my house. Inside and out. This is a Texas spiny lizard. Okay, so I have lizards on the brain. Right? I've had them crawl up my pants leg when I've writing, scurry across my feet, just all kinds of things.

So I've settled down to write after I finish watering and I'm working away, it's getting late and something crawls up my leg. Natural reaction: brush it off and then look to see what it was. Cricket maybe? Been finding a bunch of them in the house--dead. Good.

But I'm thinking one of the little lizards. It's getting really late and need to go to bed. So shut things down and start walking to the bedroom and feel something rough between the sole of my foot and my flipflop. I kick it off and off runs a scorpion. Now deceased.

I can't believe he crawled up my leg, I brushed him off AND he somehow got between my foot and my flipflop as I was walking and I DIDN'T get stung. When I lived in Oklahoma, I was stung a number of times. HATE those things.
They are way scarier than vampires.

 Those hot SEALs are back with Terry Spear's A SEAL Wolf Christmas. First, they're running around in the jaguars' territory in the hot Amazon jungle, but once they've done their SEAL kind of mission, Bjornolf and Anna have another mystery to solve--A Christmas tree farm murder mystery. They don't have to deal with babies--not yet--but wolf teens, yes! And that can mean really big trouble as Silver Bells are ringing and the aroma of wassail and cinnamon is scenting the air during this special Christmas season.




















Can an Alpha Wolf Who's Met His Match...

Navy SEAL Bjornolf Jorgenson has had tough missions before, but going undercover with feisty gray wolf Anna Johnson could top the list. She drives him crazy—in more ways than one. Now he has to investigate a murder, supervise a wild teenage wolf—and handle Christmas with Anna.

Survive the Holidays with Her?

For Anna, the only thing worse than staging the perfect family Christmas is having to do it with Bjornolf posing as her husband. Anna is a serious undercover operative who isn't afraid of a fight, even with a hunky SEAL shifter. With a killer on the loose, Anna just wants to focus on their mission, but the one thing she can't fight is her sizzling chemistry with Bjornolf.

  1. I've always wanted to make Halloween treats but I celebrate my babies birthdays in the month of October :) This year my son has asked for a Army theme because his Daddy is a Soldier and my daughter is asking for My Little Pony. I'm making him a Camoflauge Cake and her a Rainbow Cake. I'm also coloring popcorn, making camo pretzels, having rainbow fish, apple rice krispie treats and several other things. We have created an obstacle course for my sons portion of the party. My husband made all the obstacles and it looks amazing! The kids are going to have a blast! My daughter wanted ponies but everyone was booked so we are getting her a bounce house with double slides...SHES EXCITED! I decided to make 2 birthday banners out of cardstock for them. I've never really been crafty before but I have to say they look great! I'm so proud of myself! The party is this weekend and I have SOOOO many people coming and I'm a nervous wreck...I hope it all goes well! I'm going to have to try the hotdog mummies! My kids love hotdogs!

    1. Ashley,
      I can't imagine trying to do two birthday parties in the same month. I feel like my kids' birthdays are close enough with an end of November b-day and beginning of January b-day. Of course we have Thanksgiving and Christmas tossed in the mix too. :)

      Your ideas sound great! I bet your kids are going to have a blast.

  2. Ahhh, that's so cute, Ashley! I love it! I'm retired Army, so I think that is so cool. My son used to wear my Army boots. He's now in the AF. I wish I'd made some up to show them off. They're lots of fun. :) Happy birthdays to both your kids! What wonderful memories for your kids and you also!

  3. LOL When my kids were young enough that I took them trick or treating I'd just wear my regular clothes. When people asked me who I was I said I was "A Tired Mother" Got me candy every time. :)

  5. Hi Terry!
    Though I adore all things Halloween, I don't usually dress up. I'm too lazy--after dressing up three kiddies, I don't have the energy for myself. But this year, my sister-in-law had a Halloween party (just last week) because we were visiting all our family (3 states away) and I went as a witch, which is pretty much my usual face so no one noticed. :D

  7. I LOVE making fall treats! I've tried the hot dog mummies, but my daughter wasn't interested. lol. But we have a ton of fun baking -- pumpkin stuff, snickerdoodle bread, etc... I love, love, love fall flavors! And we're totally dressing up for Halloween. We were going to be The Croods, but now we're talking about being Hello, Kitty! characters. LOL. We'll see. We'll have to head to the costume shop sometime this week :)

  8. Very creative ideas for Halloween snacks.

    I thoroughly enjoy your books, Terry.. I have a great little MacKay Bear from Wilde & Wooley Bears with a bagpipe that sits in my office. I've had to move him up a little higher since my old girl, Shadow, loves to snuggle with him--she's almost 14 and I'm not sure how many of her 9 lives she has left but she is feeling entitled to my bear.

    I haven't had a chance to read these vamp books yet. Must change that.

    Over Coffee has need of another visit from the one and only Terry Spear, just sayin'

    1. LOL, I love that, Sia. Poor baby. :) I'm glad she loves the bear too. :) Hope you enjoy the vampire world! Hot bodies! And nice sexy teeth! :)

      Any time, Sia. I have a whole lot of audiobooks to give away for review copies if you want me to drop on by sometime. :)

    2. Oh, I like hot bodies...I do enjoy a good vamp story.
      Love to have you and audio books would be a great gift for a commenter. I'll send you an email. :-)

  9. We usually don't make anything special for Halloween. I do buy tons of candy for us to munch on because we don't get any trick or treaters here where we live. I do make those Halloween cookies for my son that have pumpkins on them. Thanks for the giveaway

    1. Yeah, no trick-or-treaters here either. So we just have some fun treats to eat for Halloween, spooky movies and have fun! :)

  10. My sister's birthday was always Halloween themed when we were kids, now she shares that with her oldest son! I don't go crazy with special things, but I do love freshly baked pumpkin seeds. I haven't had them for a few years, so I've had to rely on store bought for them. (I also enjoy the Reeses pumpkins - peanut butter + chocolate = heaven!)
    Thanks for the giveaway!
