So we are now about 80 days away from The Enchantress and we're gearing up here on the forum with a few special member-only treats.
I know there were some questions a little while ago about the size of the book, because Amazon had posted a page count. (Which was a neat trick, because I hadn't even finished writing it at that time.)
I can confirm that The Enchantress (including authors note and acknowledgments) is 528 pages long, which makes it the biggest of the six books. The final word count came in at around 111,616 words, beating the Sorceress 111,411 words.
Here are the (fairly accurate) word counts for the books.
The Alchemyst - 87,553
The Magician - 105,664
The Sorceress - 111,411
The Necromancer - 85,895
The Warlock - 79,568
The Enchantress - 111,616
Total - 581,707
And if I add in the two ebooks, the total comes to 597,991.
I have written a lot of material which never made it to the final books. In this last book, for example, I removed whole sections to make it tighter and faster and when the book is finally out and published and everyone has had a chance to read it, I'll talk about those. They were great scenes, but they pushed the book up to almost 120,000 words.
If I add together all the material I extracted from the series, the total Flamel word count more than doubles.
That's a lot of words!
Thank you, as always, for your continued support. Most of you started reading The Alchemyst six years ago!
