This week has been terribly unproductive compared to most. I didn’t expand on my word count to any significant degree but did manage to finish edits on Defender of the Crown, as well as flesh out some scenes for Fury of the Crown, which I will soon be starting on. The Heir to the Crown series is quite complex, at least as far as the overall story arc. Individually, each book tells its own story, though there are, of course, interlocking storylines that progress as the series advances.
This is more evident in Defender of the Crown, as not every plotline is wrapped up at the end. This also means that Fury can jump right back into the action. In one sense, it’s similar to the relationship between Shadow of the Crown and Fate of the Crown, though Fury still has two more books to wrap up the middle part of the overall series, whereas Fate completed the first part of Heir to the Crown.
As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, eventually, there will be fifteen main books in the Heir to the Crown series, organized into three overall storylines of five books each. Books one to five tells the story of Anna’s ascension to the Crown of Merceria. Books six to ten will cover…well, you’ll just have to wait and see, I don’t want to spoil the ending. The last group of stories, books eleven to fifteen, will occur sometime after these events, though they will still involve your favourite characters.
By the way, the aforementioned book list does not include any of the Mercerian Tales, so you can look forward to quite a few more stories of Merceria.
Until next time, Happy reading!
