I just published the finale to "Just Short of the Dead", my first series of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure zombie stories.  I give a lengthy thanks to the players at the end screen of the final episode, but in case you miss it or see this first, I'd like to thank you all again for giving me the chance to improve myself by sharing my work with you.  Having an audience really puts things into perspective for me, and getting feedback and support is immensely important, so again, thank you.

Some people were wondering about whether there would be a continuation of the story, but I'm afraid I have no plans of making one.  This'll be one of the hardest lessons I force myself through as a wannabe writer: letting a story go.

That's not to say that I won't be revisiting the zombie apocalypse in a future story, but when I do, I want to start over.  I don't want the characters to be oblivious to what the monsters are, because that idea has been done to death (GET IT??!!!); I don't want humanity to fail so miserably in the first week of the outbreak, unless I come up with a damn good explanation for you; most of all, I don't want the series to feel like it was written one episode at a time with no overarching plan, because even though I had a plan going into this one at first, I came across a lot of unexpected changes along the way, so I felt a little lost between some of the episodes, which meant I had to spend more time planning where it would go again, which meant more waiting for you lovely people.

Now that I understand this medium a little more, I know I can do better next time, but I think I'll put some effort into a few short stories and just practice writing in general before I go for another series.

When I do get around to making another series, though, I want it to appeal to the people who follow me.  You guys are the ones that'll see it and spread it around, so if you don't like it, what's the point?  If you have the time, tell me what kind of story or genre you'd like to see me try in a future series, and I'll take your suggestions into serious consideration as I move forward.

Once again, thank you all for everything.  I'll post more comics and shtuff as they pour forth from my now unoccupied mind!
