There are liability reasons for that. If an author acknowledges he reads fanfics, then if there is any resemblance between a fanfic and events in the main story, then the fanfic author can claim that the main author 'stole' his idea. You might not do it, but there are some who will, and they have to protect themselves across the board.

Also, if there's actual plagiarism or unauthorized reproduction, acknowledging fanfic can weaken the author's claim.

It just hit me - why did Katie go to dinner in her wolf form? She's always been a bit resistant to using it - it was even a plot point back in Vegas - hasn't she?

There'll be a throwaway line explaining it away later. The jist is that she's stuck in this form ever since the moth egg activated and can't turn back.

Somehow I always got the feeling that Leonard and Heather would be an item. How did Leonard end up with Suki?

Consider the movie Pretty In Pink. Molly Ringwald's character (Andie) has geeky Duckie pining over her, but Andie has a crush on and ends up with hunky Blane. So Leonard is like Duckie... there's chemisty due to them being long-time friends, but Leonard's been friend zoned for life.

As for why Suki? Why not. She got held back a year and the only people in her circle of friends were Leonard and Heather (and the B Squad girls), so... she put Leonard to good use.

So wait...that bit about Cressida...or was it Cress'da. Was that her who invited them over to Lemuria? Or just some alternate dimension version of Cressida...

And now that everything's gone to hell anyways I was wondering, what was she planning to do? Fatten them up and eat them?

Something around 200 pages. Not sure as I haven't finished writing the last two chapters yet.

No, Michael's only about a week ahead of what you see now on the web, so there won't be a book for this one until April 2015, which will be a few months after the final pages have already run online.

Okay, I'm curious. What happened to Shiei? Why did you switch artists for Vampire Cheerleaders?

Shiei draws the long-running series Amazing Agent Luna (now on book 11, the final one), and her schedule couldn't fit in Vampire Cheerleaders' webcomic schedule.

Interesting. What will she be doing once Amazing Agent Luna finishes?

Paranormal Mystery Squad was set-up to have the macro plotline for the entire series, so the intention was to phase out Vampire Cheerleaders and continue that half of the series as "Vampire Cheerleaders Presents Frankenbitches," which would've featured Candice and a harem of Frankenstein girls. It was originally meant to be the back-up that went with the Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die! story, but was shuffled when the entire series had to be rejiggered to work as a single webcomic under the "Vampire Cheerleaders" name. I wrote a character bible and two scenes of Frankenbitches, which I'll try to share at some point.

There was also talk of doing a "Vampire Cheerleaders Presents Hoes From Hell."

So...since you've confirmed that Vampire Cheerleaders...Space and Time?! is going to be the final arc...I just wanted to know. Are there any plans involving Marcy O'Keefe? If you're going to finish the series, I'd really like to know her deal as well as PETM's TRUE AGENDA (dun dun dun!).

Marcy will get a cameo at some point, hard to say about anything else.

Will there be a point where you fill in the gap between Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die and Vampire Cheerleaders...In Space and Time?
