Well done!!! You have done your mother proud.
Don’t take to long with getting another out.
I’m afraid, however, that I *am* taking long getting the next one out. I’ve got the lead work on “Dragon’s Fire” and while I’d like to have finished it back in December, the book’s being difficult. Fortunately, my editor has said that she’d rather have a good book late than a bad book on time (which amounts to the same thing because she just won’t take a bad Pern book — she’s been editing them for over 20 years now).
