Today I was reminded that while most of us won't ever get a chance to become an honest to goodness princess (Why wasn't I born ten years younger and British so I could have had a shot with Prince William??), we can all be an inner princess.
As I was coming in to work today, I had to go past one of the security guards. I flashed him my awesome i.d. badge (allowing me to bypass the regular line) and the guard bowed and addressed me as "your majesty." Now, I'm not regal by any means - I'm short, I get the occasional zit, and I could probably benefit from some regular exercise. So I've come to the conclusion that it must be the way I interact with people that makes a difference in how people respond to me.
That's the message I hope to capture in Heir. With forces at play between good and evil, love and hate, and valor versus cowardice, it all boils down to the choices that we make and what side we chose to play on. But just in case my point it isn't made clear enough, I've thrown in a juxtapose of characters (yes, that includes evil twins) for good measure.
