Hello, newest ghost hunter! Or maybe you’re being dragged along on this adventure. Yikes! I’m so sorry! But stay brave! Ghosts can smell fear!
Zach from Friends to the End here. I’m hijacking this guest post to share with you some important tips that I learned the hard way. So before searching for ghosts, phantoms, or whatever raises the hair on the back of your neck, remember to grab your ghost-hunting necessities!
Round up your bravest friends (someone needs to take the lead). Besides, the extra brainpower will come in handy.
You’ll need a dependable flashlight with fresh batteries. Don’t just use the one on your phone. Trust me, you’ll appreciate the extra light when you’re trapped outside or worse, in a vanishing house.
Strap on your best running shoes and lace them up tight, just in case you need to make a quick getaway.
Bring with you a one-pound container of salt. More if you can carry it! And no, it’s not for the ghosts and phantoms to use to season you up for eating. Salt, believe it or not, (I didn’t at first) repels ghosts.
A wrench. Or any tool or object made of iron. Iron also repels ghosts.
A camera. You’ll want to snap a picture of the spooky things you find!
I know I’m missing something. But don’t worry, there are more tips for staying safe in Friends to the End.
On behalf of C.L. Colyer I’d like to thank our host, Westveil Publishing, for having us here today.

Zach doesn’t believe in ghosts…but he should.
Twelve-year-old Zach is convinced he’ll never be happy without his best friend Jeremy by his side. But both of their lives changed with a bang five months ago, and as far as Zach’s concerned, it’s his fault Jeremy will never see his twelfth birthday.
When Zach moves with his family to a Chicago suburb, he quickly becomes friends with a group of thrill-seeking kids trying to find a disappearing haunted house. But Zach’s not worried. He doesn’t believe in ghosts, so he follows them into a wild, dangerous encounter that becomes a battle to decide what’s real and what’s not.

We stopped a few yards from the cemetery, our mouths hanging open and our eyes wide.
“Please tell me you see that,” I whispered.
“If you mean the white lights floating above the ground,” Josh said, “we see it.”
“They’re orbs,” Morgan corrected, as if knowing the proper name for the glowing spheres made it okay to see them.
“Orbs?” Josh asked.
“Spirits of the dead,” I replied, remembering what Morgan had told me.
Dom scooted his bike closer. “Maybe we should ask them if they’ve seen the house.”
“Seriously?” Morgan asked.
Morgan shook her head, causing her ponytail to swing from side to side. “Oh, no! I learned my lesson the last time we were here. I’m not stepping one foot off the shoulder of the road.”
“Your right foot is in the grass,” Dom said, shining his flashlight on her sneaker.
Morgan scowled and repositioned herself to have both feet on concrete.
Three iridescent orbs floated over headstones. I thought about the movies that warned people to stay away from the light. Maybe they weren’t warning us about a bright beam of light, but instead small glowing balls. Maybe if one of them touched you, the spirit would take over your body. Maybe they were waiting for someone to be stupid enough to come closer. I suddenly wondered if I’d met anyone who’d been possessed by a spirit and immediately thought of Olivia and her strange habits.
Then I told myself I was being ridiculous.
Or was I? Think about it. How would anyone know if a ghost hitched a ride with the person in front of him or her?
