This is a work of fiction. All the characters and events portrayed in this book are fictional, and any resemblance to real people or incidents is purely coincidental.
As with every story I write, this one wouldn’t exist without the help of a great army of people working alongside me. To start, I’d like to thank Red Adept Editing Services. My editor, Lynn, helps me turn my gibberish into something approaching the English language. Next up are my beta readers. There were a lot this time: Gretchen and Tony Cooke, Chris Weicht, Don Query, Mark Jaggers, Marilee Higgs, Don Simpson, and Jamie Leon-Guerrero. To all of you, thanks! The final leg of the production process is the team at Streetlight Graphics. They’re the geniuses behind the amazing covers that adorn the entire Elements of the Undead series. Last but certainly not least, I’d like to thank my wife, Robin. While not a fan of zombies, or anything violent for that matter, she’s a fan of my desire to write, and that, my friends, is priceless!
