Today I worked out what the last scene of the novel would be, and thought I might as well write it while it was in my mind, which I did. It brought with it a very hazy idea of what the sequels would be about if I turn this into a trilogy.

Windrose Hall ends with a question, and the answer might determine whether Book Two is historical fiction or alternate history. I'm fond of that idea.

I'm also much fonder than I ought to be of the fact that in my head, [one of the two possible versions of] Book Three is entitled The Return of the King.

All alternate histories have a point where they diverge from real history, I think, but usually that happens before the book begins. Are there any existing examples of historical fiction that turns into alternate history quite a long way through?

I'm quite behind with wordcount in terms of Nanowrimo (3151), but I usually start out that way and I've never failed at Nano before, and of course this year I'd rather have 30,000 good words by the end of November than 50,000 not so good ones.
