I’d seriously like your opinion on cliffhangers. Now, I have no problem with a long story arc that continues over several books, TV episodes, or movie series, but I have to say, this trend of ending every book , episode, or movie with a cliffhanger really rubs my fur the wrong way.
As you know, when I write a series there is a long story arc, but each book in the series ends with a resolution to the current problem for the main characters. Yes, they know there will be more to face, but for the moment all is well, the reader can catch a breather before heading into the next adventure.
The Children of the Goddess series is a prime example of what I’m saying. That one begins here:
Personally, if a book I’m reading ends in a cliffhanger I’ll toss it and not read the rest of the series.
So, what are your thoughts on this? Don’t be shy, tell me what you think, as a writer I kinda need to know this stuff, right?
Until next time
