Hi Everyone
Sorry for the long gap between posts but I've experienced a bit of back and forth  with my literary agent in relation to the ending of my novel Unnatural. 
 It takes an incredible amount of time to write a novel but the toughest part of it has to be coming up with a good ending.  One that resolves conflicts, satisfies the reader, flows naturally without seeming contrived and still retains some tension and surprise.
You can all probably remember reading a novel that kept you glued to the page only to let you down at the end as well as the book with an ending so unbelievable it spoiled the whole experience for you.
I hope I've finally come up with the best ending possible but only time will tell when it goes out for submission to publishers.
In the meantime I'd like to recommend some great books that are not only compelling reads but end well:
The story of the ancient siege at Masada from the viewpoint of four unusual women.

A nail-biting, page-turning modern thriller. 

An amazing story of the 19th century frontier from Montana to Southern Saskatchewan.
I promise the blogs will resume their regular pace again.  I'd love to hear your comments.  You can make them at the end of each blog by using Google-plus.  Till next time.
