Cliffhangers are one of those reader lures that can backfire if they’re so abrupt they annoy the reader and the sequel is not yet released. One way to mitigate this frustration is to include the first chapter or so of the sequel at the end. This is particularly easy to accomplish in an ebook. That way your reader might feel less abandoned, used, or manipulated and hopefully make it more likely they’ll buy the next one in the series.
