I finished the first round of edits and have half of what I’ve done back from the editor for round 2 of polishing it up. Amidst all of this I found that I wanted to leave something more for the reader, so I added a little surprise stinger at the end that will enable a plot point for a future book or short story. It’s nothing big, but enough that I can go back to it soon and write more.
No matter what I do to wrap up this saga I just can’t help adding a little more for anyone who has followed the series or individual entries. Perhaps all my future books will take place in the same reality as the current series, but on its own accord. I love planting seeds like these, but what do you feel as a reader? Do you like to have something to look forward to if the story is closed out? Or would you rather there be no open ends?
