Knowing when to stop.

February 7, 2016

As I come to the end of a story, I am often torn about how to end things.  Thankfully, I usually follow my gut and do so when the time seems right.

 

Since my first book ran 90 chapters, I use that as a reference as I write.  Most of them reach 90 chapters, one has gone further, but sometimes they need to end sooner.  As much as I feel like I might be short-changing my readers, I'd much rather conclude a story when necessary rather than write non-essential filler.

 

As I reach the end of Nick Savage's story, it has become glaringly evident that 90 chapters will be too much.  Especially when his story will end with a cliffhanger that leads us directly into book 4 of the Finding Harmony Series.  That's not my style.  Or at least it hasn't been.  But for Nick's tale and the one that follows, it's necessary.

 

I look forward to finishing "Deceptive Cadence" and sharing the story of Nick Savage with you in the very near future.
