I’ve always found this a topic that normally ends up in a fight whether or not it’s face to face with people or on line. Do you prefer a series of books where you have stand alone endings to each one or cliff hanging endings? One of my series set in a Garden Centre in Wales has Cliff Hanger endings which some of my readers love, but I have found that I have to write each one quickly so I don’t keep readers waiting to long. I read a book recently that gave me a cliff hanger ending and I found that I was complaining that I felt as though I’d been blackmailed into buying the second one to find out what happened. I’d never realised that I’d done exactly the same thing.
My cozy novels, although they’re all about the same characters, in the same places are all stand alone and I’m going to make all my books stand alone in future.
As I said it’s one of those things that I find end up with different people like diffrent things !
