Why Do Some Author’s Insist on Writing a Lousy Ending?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  2. Ha ha, I confess to doing cliffhanger endings in my series, but in my defense, The next book picks right up where the previous cliffhanger ended. So questions eventually do get answered and things eventually do get resolved. I sink and unresolved ending can be excusable if it’s in a series. However, if it’s an unresolved ending on a stand-alone, absolutely positively not cool. Open endings are kind of a jip too. Not only is it infuriating when an author does an unresolved ending on a stand-alone, it makes me want to pop The publisher and the editor in the face for leading such a crappy ending slide. Publishers put SO MUCH importance on the beginning of an authors manuscript. I wish they would see a good ending as being just as important. I once heard that the unresolved ending is the common thing now. Yikes! It gives me hope when seeing that readers fine is unacceptable too. One angry book reviewer was even like, “Authors! Finish your books!” Hopefully authors and publishers and editors will listen and realize that the unresolved ending is far more uncool than the dreaded info dump, or telling not showing.
