It’s messy, it’s ragged, it’s got continuity holes big enough to drive a subway train through, but for the moment, it’s done.
I now have four Onyx Court novels.
Good Christ that epilogue was hard to write. Possibly it sucks. I have no idea. What the hell does one write, to end a four-book series? Especially when one isn’t sure whether this is the end permanently, or just the end for now? How does one wrap something like that up? How many readers will kill me for not showing the [spoiler] they’ll think I should have shown? Will my editor be one of them?
These questions don’t have answers, at least not tonight. Tonight, I back up the file, and sleep the sleep of the novel-completing just.
