This is what Scott said the other day
"I'm working to improve the listing of those who die. KISS is reserved for those who actually buy the farm. So if your are a MC (Major Character) and you die, then you get the KISS. HM probably means you were mentioned or name-dropped, but you didn't croak.
HOWEVER -- if the book you are in is still coming out, then I won't list you as KISS. I'm not going to give the fucking story away, you Damn Dirty Junkies"
