So, is it coincidence that every book so far has ended just after a major battle, or is that purposely done?

Cool Hopefully that's the version where Goto works properly and isn't a page or two off. If it's off it means there is still a newer one...

Well, the first time it was extremely fitting.

The second one didn't initially end in a big battle and everyone in beta thought the book was rather boring, so I changed things around/rearranged things and it ended up with the big bang.

This one was building to this for most of the book so....

It's not a requirement, but I like to end on a high/big note that leaves people wanting to come back for the next "season" so it's really the same way serialized TV shows like to end with a cliffhanger.

But really it's about breaking up the long story at appropriate points, since it's all one book. So I look for a good break point around 250,000 words plus or minus and then move stuff around to make the ending more satisfying.

A marriage or birth would probably also work, as would a (permanent) death.

Fair enough, It certainly makes me cant wait for the next one, so i wont deny that your strategy isn't working.

Do saints return to their gods outer plane, without an interdiction, if they die?
