I always find starting a book the most challenging part of writing. Knowing what I want to get into the first chapter isn’t the problem, it’s deciding on what angle to use to begin the narrative. This typically involves a decision as to who’s point of view the work will begin with. Some series are easier than others, but for something as lengthy as Heir to the Crown, the number of possibilities is relatively high.
Luckily, this time out, the decision wasn’t as difficult as some others have been, but I did have to decide among two different characters—one from book three and the other a brand new character. I won’t give away who they are, but I will give you a hint; it’s not one of the usual suspects.
Until next time, happy reading!
