Is done! Yipeee!

155,000+ words, 885 manuscript pages, 25 chapters.

Of course, this is only the first draft. I’ll be bringing it with me to Ireland and Mum and I will go over it there (actually, Mum, I, Gigi, and a cast of thousands, probably).

I am enjoying my way through Dragon’s Kin…Great Stuff! I’ve read every PERN Novel, front to back and back to front, always finding new friends and revisiting old friends. The translation of PERN to CGI would be easy now! But what story to pick??? Keep up the good work! Suggestions for reading: Rocheworld by Robert L Forward, or A Choice of Gods by Clifford D Simak

Thanks again!

Thanks, Lynn!

I’m glad you liked Dragon’s Kin.

Pern would make a great film. I think live action with CGI would work brilliantly (look at LOTR for example). As for me, I’d start with Dragonflight and see what happens.

Thanks for the book suggestions. Right now I’m re-reading Harry Potter for the ninth or tenth time.

Master Harper Todd,
This must be your title for you are following in Anne’s footsteps with ‘Dragon’s Kin’.
I just got it for Christmas from my sister (I introduced her to Pern a few years ago)and have just finished it.

I just wanted to say thanks, I have read my Pern novels so many times I believe I will have to replace them by the time my daughter gets finished.

It’s great to be able to read on about Pern with new characters and creatures.
I guess you can tell I liked ‘Dragon’s Kin’ I am looking so forward to Dragonsblood.
Thanks again.

Thanks Jennifer!

I’m glad that you liked Dragon’s Kin. I just started writing the last chapter of Dragonsblood.
