A Word About Adam

A number of you have asked via blog commentary how Adam was doing, something that I'm sure he and all of us here at the Haunted House greatly appreciate.

I'm not going to lie to you. Things are really, really difficult right now. I've been asked to respect his family's privacy so I won't go into any further detail.

But we all remain hopeful. The ability to hope is perhaps the most powerful ability that humanity, living or dead, has, after our ability to love. Exercise both abilities frequently.

Respect his family's privacy? Is that code for ''I'm got giving anything away untill the next book''? Ha ha, well either way, we're going to have to wait.

animeface said...

Change is always hard to adjust to. It's all the effort and perserverance that really counts.

If I know Adam, he'll be better in no time!

Terra said...

*cries* why did Adam have to die?!?!??!?! But I hope hes doin good. TOMMY RULEZZZ!!!!

Anonymous said...

my favorite quote is
"It takes just as much energy to achieve excellence as to avoid it."
I know that things must be hard for Adam, but if he really does his best, I'm sure he'll get where he wants to be.

Wait, Who's Adam?!?! Whats wrong with you?

Kait said...

Oh my gosh Tommy, I am deeply thankful that you posted some sort of update on Adam. I was so worried about him, and Pheebs. Also, how are you and her doing? Are you guys dating yet? Did you ever finish that kiss? Has colette become more functional? I love the way you write; & look forawrd to more of your blogs. <3

i know you cant give away to much because you want everybody to be surprised when the book comes out but thanks for trying.=)

Whittney.R said...

Hi Tommy I just am so happy to hear About Adam. Tell him that all the readers of GD are probebly happy to hear about him and That We still care about him and I will always. I am hoping for an up date on how Pheobe is and how the two of you are.

P.S. Tell Pete if you don't mined that he is the most horibal person in the world and that he should have to go to Jail and I know about 30 girls that if they ever find out ware he lives that he is going to have to go into hiding just so he can keep frum being beaten by a bunch of 8th grade girls. B.T.W. We are not scared of his so called "Pane Crew."

Thanks for the word on Adam and for also respecting his privacy.

Gothgirl#1 said...

Its good that your respecting his privacy,and I hope this rough patch of time that is happening ends soon.Maby you should try talking to Adam.I think if theres any one Adam would need to talk to it would be you, Tommy. Phoebe too maby.
Happy New Year to everyone!

Judy Purry said...

I hope Adam is okay after what happened. I can't say WHAT happened because my friend here hasnt finished it yet but is enjoying it. Thank you.

Judy Purry said...

I hope Adam's okay after what happened. I cannot say what did happened because they have not finished the book yet. Although my friend is enjoying it. It was AWESOME!!!Thank you!

Melissa said...

Tiamat100 said...

Adam is the awesome dude that saved Phoebe from getting kill but got himself killed. Can't wait to see wat happns to Adam. U rock Tommy and Adam. Happy 2009! Tell Karen, Colette, Phoebe, Margi, Adam, pretty much everybody at the Haunted House.

Tommy Williams said...

I'm confused by some of your comments, but the important thing is that it means a lot to Adam (and everyone else, really) that you care about him so much. Thanks.

Zombie/VampireLover said...

Oh My Gawd! I just finsihed Generation Dead about and hour ago. I was so pleased it pasted all my expectations. I couldn't get enough of it. i read the book all day after i got it, till about midnight, i think, and i didn't want to sleep because it was brilliant. I swear I slept with it right next to me and i started reading it after I came back from school. I'm not even ashamed to admit that i cried at the end when Adam got shot.
Darn Pete! but at least he gets to come back as a zombie. Tak was right... death is a gift, a gift that Adam deserved. I am dying to read Kiss of Death!!! I seriously cannot wait!!
One of the bests book I've read.
Grr... I'm so anxious!!
I swear if things like this ever happened, I would be the first to befriend a zombie( differently biotic )
Wish i could me you guys! Thanks for the update on Adam, hope he feels better. Tell phoebe I'm sorry about wwhat happened. Stay safe:)
xoxo, zombie lover

IGAslave said...

I'm glad to hear he's making progress.Hows pheeble taking evertything? i hope shes alright...

IGAslave said...

btw what ever happened with pete? please dont tell me he got away with what he did!

Kyla :] said...

Here's the deal - Im a Very Strong believer, so I have to ask 1 question : You're not really a zombie, are you ? o_o
If not, how can you guys make these blogs and the books seem so real ?
Im strongly impressed.

Anonymous said...

I think Adam is a hero for what he did for Phoebe. And it is nice that you are respecting his privacy too... I hope Phoebe relizes how lucky she is because of all the great freinds she has (differently biotic and traditionally biotic freinds). And I hope Pete knows what he has done wrong (but what he did might be better for Phoebe and Adam closer)and that he will take responsibillty for his actions.

Anonymous said...

hi everyone!! ok so first isnt adam dead cuz he got killed by pete and then so he became undead? is that right?? so now hes like part of u guys? wow sorry i didnt exactly know cuz the book didnt continue wat happened. i hope theres a continue..

Scarypants2 said...

I really hope that Phoebe can bring Adam back as far as she can.Poor Adam.I swear I was so close to crying.

Nat said...

I cried the last chapter.
It's been roughly 4 months.

I was almost close to crying when I found out some of you have not read the book.

Let us not forget Adam, he is close to me and my friend Lydia's heart. I'll pray for him. Send my love to everyone...especially Adam.

Lots of Love,

[ChErRiE) said...

I hope Adam "comes back". I have my fingers crossed

lzz said...

I hope he is okay!!!!!!!!!

I hope he comes through this and that Pete gets arrested for it, you may say whatever you want but he deserves it! If he does not survive this, I hope he comes back *crosses fingers* don't die Adam!!

gothgirl said...

I am sure that Adam will come back seeinghow phoebe realizes how important she is to him now

gothgirl said...

I am pretty sure that adam will come back in the fullest since phoebe now realizes how important she is to him

the_nxt_dead_girl_17 said...

hey so i've been on this website many times before but i just made an account or watever its called and i was wondering if they were gona make a movie out of generation dead?

gothgirl said...

I sure hope so it would be so awesome

gothgirl said...

I sure hope so

Vampire Tacos said...

Nice to know he's still hanging in there. Adam kind of reminds me of my best friend Dylan. I'm kind of Goth and Dylan is Mr. Political. I guess oppisites attract right? Just know that my friends and I support you and Adam and to tell Phoebe she sounds like a good friend.

Anonymous said...

During fifth period i randomly started crying and cried into sixth period when i read that Pete shot Adam... I never liked pete from the start... he was so mean to you Tommy!
I'm glad adam's doing okay! has he become more functional? or is that classified?
Send him my undying- whoops, sorry, send him my forever love,
Misty

Anonymous said...

Adam Oh I love him <3
he and Phoebe should end up together, sorry Tommy but he showed that he truly does love Phoebe, and that you...well don't.

Arin Lily said...

LaurenIsAFreak said...

Oh...I only just found this post.
I guess it was nice to hear about Adam, if only a little.
Would it possible for you to tell us some more, Tommy? I don't mean to pry, I'm just interested.
Also, is there any progress with the relationship between Margi and Colette? I hope so, that would be nice. :]

Anonymous said...

i think adam is asweome + a great friend for phoebe + we should respect his privacy... but what about the last tragic event?HE GETS SHOT IN THE CHEST!!! hello? well we should at

Anonymous said...

i think its great too that we should respect that privacy. But at the same time i think we should get 2 know what happens 2 him since he gets SHOT at the end + know if he tells Phoebe that he loves her! Although she is good with tommy, no offense, but she should at least know how he feels about her! I think hes great throughout the book anyways... a good friend 2 Phoebe + Margi! anyway adam is my fav out of all the guys in there!! WHY DID HE DIE SO YOUNG?.... WHYD THEY ALL DIE SO YOUNG? (dramatic voice;) lol )

Kurai said...

It's good that you're respecting his privacy. I hope Adam, and everyone else, will be doing good soon.

Bye

Adam, we all love you and hope that its getting easier for you to move and talk. You are a true hero saving Phebe like that. And yes Tommy, I'm kinda ticked at you for not doing so, you can't even feel pain and yet you stood there hestitating, jerk. But you are our leader so I can't get too mad. But we all love you Adam. If my best friend was being aimed at I would save them too, mainly cause I'm in love with him. Even though he would think that it was stupid to give my life to save his, I would.


Love to all of zombie kind,

Generation dead brought me joy while reading it. If it's a movie, I'll definitely watch it.:) Books are really a space to think about many other things and get rid of the mundane lifestyle. Thank you for writing and of course publishing the awesome storybooks. :D
