[books] An important note about Pinion

Just a quick peek inside the sausage factory here, along with a huge "thank you."

stillsostrange has a book entitled Pinion which is currently going through the contracting process, through our shared agent, arcaedia. When arcaedia, casacorona and I were hammering through possible production titles for Tourbillon, I came up with Pinion without realizing stillsostrange was already using it.

Titles aren't copyrighted, and books with similar (or identitical) titles are endemic. But none of us wanted to step on stillsostrange. So we checked production schedules and other likely points of confusion, then asked stillsostrange if she minded that I use Pinion for the third Mainspring book.

Quite graciously, she agreed.

So here is a big shout-out and a thank you to stillsostrange, who is a Hero of the Revolution and will get some love in the book, besides.
