What makes a good one ? Socrates' Children now has unhappily ever after ending. I am contemplating adding an epilogue giving a more positive outlook. Less than a 1000 words one year on, also sets up the premise for my next book. I was going to tell it third person and past tense rather than the first person present tense the rest of the book. I don't know whether to make it a preview first chapter or an epilogue. Any thoughts and philosophies on epilogues welcome.
