How to survive a horror movie tip # 7
If you find that your house is built upon or near a cemetery, that was once a church that was used for black masses, had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed necrophilia or satanic practices, move away immediately.

So I wake up this afternoon and find this little note in my inbox, it’s a fan letter, I think…

[Dear Crystal,
Let's stop kidding ourselves. This can't go on much longer. Global economies crashing, nuclear fallout, aliens...something big is sure to happen soon. I have a truck, a gun, and an iron will to survive. So I’ve chose you to keep me company during the ensuing months as well as to help me repopulate the planet when all's said and done. All you have to do is keep our camp clean, cook, provide stimulating conversation, and, naturally, sex. In exchange, you will receive protection from hunger-crazed gangs who haven't bothered to learn how to grow food or live on their own, wolves, zombies, et cetera. You will have access to my library, which I'm keeping as history for the new generations of mankind we will produce. More valuable than anything, you'll have newfound respect, pride, and love as the new Eve! I read this story you wrote called the monster and that’s why I think that you, more than anyone else, deserves to live through the coming disaster. Also, if you have a decent sized dog or large stockpiles of non-perishable food that would be great.
Waiting to hear back from you,

Yeah. Not sure if I should be flattered or frightened, lol. Speaking of the speaking of the apocalypse things are finally going well with The Lazarus Antidote, I’m finally at the place where I am starting to like this story. I put it back on back burner to work on Amber’s New Friend. I’m really anxious to get this story in the hands of my new editor, who fucking rocks btw, because I’m really loving the story but I need to make sure the structure is right and the story flow is easy to follow.

I'm sych'd and gearing up for Seattle's Crypticon which is less than 30 days away, Q the butterflies =D I'm super exicted and hope to see some of you guys out there!

On the dark side of the mountian some changes are on the horizon and I'll let you guys know what it is when it get's a little closer but what I can tell you its gonna be an reenactment of the of gunfight at the O.K. Corral because I’ve basically had it up to here. >=(

I'll keep you guys posted
