Author's Note about the Ending of UY
April 23, 2015
I've been quiet because I've been taking time to gauge the response to the ending of Uncovering You. So far, it's been overwhelmingly obvious: you pretty much hate it.
That's not where I wanted to leave the story. I thought the conclusion was in line with the very first book. From the prologue, at the start, we knew Jeremy and Lilly weren't going to have a happy-ever-after. I hinted at it throughout the rest of the series and thought I prepared you for it.
Apparently, I did not. It pissed some of you off.
Scratch that. It pissed all of you off. And that's the damn last thing I want to do.
I left the ending vague and ambiguous on purpose: I wanted you to imagine if Lilly would die or live. If you wanted the HEA, you saw that she woke up. If you didn't? She never rose.
I thought it was devilishly clever. In reality it was devilishly moronic. You want a conclusion at the end. I didn't deliver, and it all backfired on me.
So I'm going to fix it.
I'm going to drop everything I'm doing and write you the ending you deserve. The ending you asked for; the ending that fits with what you expect in this genre but also stays true to the characters you've gotten to know over ten books.
I'll release it for free. It'll cover the months after Lilly's ambiguous eye flutter. I'll upload it as a novella to Kindle, Nook, iTunes; all the stores. I'll post it here and on my website. I'll send it out to the list. Everybody who wants a conclusive ending to Uncovering You will get it.
And then, that's it. No more Lilly or Jeremy, because their story is over. I have another book (not GAGE) that's about 80% done at the moment. It's a standalone (yes!) with a HEA (yes yes!). But I don't feel right releasing it until I remedy this.
Give me one week. You'll know more then.
