reader mail & worries about Jennet

This lovely message from a reader reminds me of something:

Sitting, waiting out here in the North Pacific rain, for QofS to fill the time while my military husband finishes his tour, please ask Bantam to hurry, I have to know if Jennet meets up with pirates and returns to Luke.

You know the paperback of Fire Along the Sky is out there, right? Well there’s a sneak preview of the new novel at the end, and it pretty much resolves any worries there might be about Jennet’s survival.

Not that you need to buy a copy, she said earnestly. You could read it in the bookstore, if need be.
