How to Write a Satisfying Ending to Your Novel - Explained by a Professional Book Editor

Updated: Jan 9, 2022

Professional book editor in the UK explains how to write a satisfying ending to your novel!

There's nothing worse than being gripped by the first few chapters of a new book, getting invested in the story throughout the middle, but feeling disappointed by an unsatisfying ending.

So far, I haven't been 'disappointed' with any of the manuscripts I've edited, as they've all been brilliant in their own way, but there have been a few that fell a little flat towards the end compared to the beginning, which I've hopefully fixed!

Yes, it's impossible for any author to impress every single reader, especially if they have a huge fan base, but there are certainly a few basic rules to follow if you want your ending to be as enjoyable as the beginning and middle!
