Enemy of the Crown, the twelfth main book in the Heir to the Crown series, is proceeding nicely, already sitting at a word count of 33,500, and I’m almost done writing chapter eleven.
My estimated length of this book is 120,000, and the outline includes thirty-six chapters. That means chapter twelve would mark the end of the first act (which it does according to my outline), although my word count may be just shy of 40,000 by that time.
I’m not too worried, though. There are already indications I may be adding a chapter or two, as the characters are providing some twists of their own.
