A few (okay a fair number) of very astute readers have picked up on a couple of lines at the beginning of Zombie Fallout 2 that refer to Marta and how she used to change Tommy's diapers. 'Well how is that possible Mr. Tufo if Tommy is a 500 year old half-vamp?' They ask. Alright so I am going to take you through the entire genesis of the problem, the less than satisfactory repairs and my creative processes. You ready? Let's start with Tommy, first off the boy was NEVER supposed to make it off that Wal-Mart roof. In fact Tommy and Eliza both were never characters I had envisioned when I started the series. And the relationship between the two was not even 'revealed' to me until book 3. So I knew I had the diaper reference issue from book 2, how do I go about correcting the past? So I started to really drop significant hints that Tommy had the ability to infuse false thoughts into us lesser beings. I was less than satisfied with that answer, so I actually did some tinkering with book 2 and edited out some of Marta's comments, actually making them vague, apparently it wasn't enough. Now I'm going to do what I had sort of hoped to avoid and I'm going to rewrite history so to speak. So most likely in a few weeks this blog entry will not even be relevant!
EDIT - Okay so it looks like this post will still be relevant until 2019 (when the audio is redone). I have since long ago fixed the ebook and hard copies, alas the audio will have this hiccup until I regain the rights and have the series redone. Feel free to use Tommy's power of suggestion until then.
