So, there was little rest involved last night as my mind came alive with the actual ending – or possible ending – for the New World series. I know the story and have that plotted for the most part but the ending has always eluded me until my mind exploded with ideas just as I was heading off into dreamland.
The problem I was having with the ending is that most stories resolved themselves back to the status quo for a resolution of some kind. With a post-apocalyptic story, that is difficult to do as there is really never an ending to the story. The sheer nature of a post-apocalyptic world involves a beginning of something entirely new where the status quo, or at least back to one, is impossible to achieve. With that said, a possible ending book did materialize and I sat up for a lot of the night plotting out the story line for it.
I won’t give any spoilers and the actual writing of it is a while away. There is a lot that happens with Jack, his kids, Lynn, and the rest between now and then. The story must be told. Hopefully my coffee won’t spill on my notes between now and then. The third book, A New World: Sanctuary, is coming along slowly. My goal of having the draft finished by the end of the month may not be achieved but the possibility still exists. I am working on that story and getting A New World: Chaos ready for print publication as well. I finished getting A New World: Return ready just today. Those two book should be out in print by the end of the year but I am striving to complete that before then.
As I have said numerous times before and truly mean it, thank you all for your support in making the series a success beyond my wildest dreams. I truly hope everyone who has read either one or both of the books have enjoyed it/them. If you have, I ask that you take a spare moment, if you have one, and write up a review on Amazon. That would be tremendously appreciated.
Have an awesome Wednesday all!
