I am taking a trip to Las Vegas later this month, which got me thinking. In my first book, Sunset, one of the characters starts his journey there after most of the population is killed. I think I chose that location because of how creepy it would be if you were the only one left. All those lights and sounds going on around you but void of human life. I would proably freak out. Vegas has to be one of the most vibrant and alive places I have ever been and to think of it as "dead" takes alot of processing.
Hope I can create the same type of imagery in the sequel.
