1. Sunday, October 10, 2010 is World Zombie Day, and also the day that the Hub City Survival book is available for purchase online! How exciting is that?! You can order the book here! The story will be left available online for those who want to read it for free. For those of you who have read and enjoyed the story, however, and want to support me, purchasing the book would be a big big help to me!
UPDATE 10/10/10 7:47 PM Added two more fanarts that I just received. Since publishing the book at 4 AM today I have sold 3 books!

Sunday, September 26, 2010, marks the end of Hub City Survival. I finished part 16 today at a cafe.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been reading the story! I really appreciate your support and I may not have continued to post the story if it hadn't been for your support. Thank you, thank you!!

3. UPDATE 10/10/10: The book is now available! You can purchase it online here. Thanks in advance to any kind souls who decide to purchase the book!

A special thanks to my fiance, :iconbugoron:, who took the cover photo. You can view the photo on its own here.

The book is scheduled for worldwide online release on Sunday, October 10, 2010. I chose this date because 10/10/10 is international zombie day! The link will be made available here as soon as the book can be ordered online. I understand that many will not want to order the book because I have offered all the chapters here for free; that is completely fine. I added a few extras in the book, however, for those who would like to purchase it.

4. Feel free to submit fanart to me whenever! I LOVE fanart. Here's what I've gotten so far:

- Tracey by :iconberende: (featured in the book!)
- Tracey and Diana by :iconsailormiwako: (featured in the book!)
- Tracey by :iconbeautfulmidnite: (featured in the book!)
- Tracey - HCS by :icontirakisashi:

5. References for some of the important characters featured in Hub City Survival are below. If you want to make art of any characters not listed, then it's totally up to your imagination/interpretation.

Tracey
Young woman in her early twenties. Long black hair, worn straight. Messy bangs. Blue eyes. Eyebrow and lip piercings. Thin, small build, about 5'2".

Derek
Fit and athletic, but slender. Young man in his early twenties. Shoulder-length wavy/curly dark brown hair. Goatee, no mustache. Dark brown eyes, broad-ish nose. About 5'11". Dresses somewhat skater-style; baggy clothes.

Bruno
Man in his early thirties. Very handsome, with chiseled features and short, spiked blond hair. Tall; about 6'2". Broad and muscular, well-toned. Light stubble that gets thicker as the story progresses.

Diana
Average-sized 10-year old girl: about 4'5". Green eyes, with medium-length dirty-blond hair worn in messy pigtails. She's more mature than most girls her age, and that shows through her looks as well, particularly in her eyes.

Micky
A large husky dog, with heterochromic eyes: one is brown, and one is blue. His colouring is mostly brown and beige, with black. Very friendly-looking dog with a red collar.

Rebecca
Tall and curvy woman in her mid thirties. Long, curly auburn hair that has seen a streak or two of grey.

Congratulations, you are now a published author! :party: :dance:

The book looks awesome, the cover photo is a brilliant choice, I think. Really simple, to the point, and impressive.

(And btw, I included your picture in the book like I promised. I don't have a printed copy yet but if it looks as good as it did in the print-ready file, it will look really great on printed paper!)

How come you don't have a copy yet? I mean, shouldn't you be the first person to get one? *is oblivious about the rules of bookmaking*

That's a pretty crazy feeling, you know! Just incredible. I feel great, even if it is only self-published. :dance:

Thanks so much! I really liked the cover, as well. As soon as :iconbugoron: took the photo, I looked at it and said "That's the one".
