How to Write an Effective E-Book Conclusion

Last but not least, we come to the conclusion. This is the part of the e-book where you wrap up the story and offer some last words of wisdom. It’s a tricky part because you want the reader to get everything from your book and not miss a thing, but you also don’t want to overdo it and make it seem like a rush to get things done. Finding the right words is not an easy task, but it’s worth it in the end. So here goes…

Start At The Beginning

One of the first things you need to do is start at the beginning and set up the background for the story. You can either do this in an overview section or in the prologue, whichever you feel is most appropriate. The important thing is that you establish the setting and the story’s timeline in such a way that the reader doesn’t get confused about what’s going on. If possible, you should avoid using words such as “then” or “later” because those words can be ambiguous and lead to misunderstandings.

For example, let’s say you’re writing a story about the Civil War and you want to reference the battle of Gettysburg. When you write “Gettysburg is where the Civil War began,” does that mean that the battle of Gettysburg was the beginning of the Civil War or does it mean that the Civil War began with the battle of Gettysburg? The answer is the first one, because the battle of Gettysburg was the first major battle of the Civil War. However, using “where” in this case might make the meaning clearer to the reader. Instead of using “then” or “later” to indicate a temporal relationship, you can use “in the year 1862” or “in the early part of the Civil War” to make it clear that you’re referring to the beginning.

The Structure Of The Conclusion

You’ll also need to decide how you want to structure your conclusion. There are two main options: you can either have a series of “paragraphs” or a series of “sentences” with a clear starting point and a terminating point. The first type of structure is more common and looks like this:
