* ''{{Atonement}}'' is an odd case, because Briony [[spoiler:admits to having changed the ending because [[ShootTheShaggyDog it would have been too depressing otherwise]].]] [[TheFilmOfTheBook The movie]] [[spoiler:makes it clear that Robbie and Cecilia died rather than living happily ever after.]]

* The classic book ''InterviewWithTheVampire'' (and the movie too, I would guess) is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin an interview done by a guy with a vampire]]. It is implied that Louis (the vampire) destroyed the record afterwards, but in the next book n the series (''The Vampire Lestat'') the book has been published to the world. Then Lestat himself took over that custom and started writing his adventures, with each successive book referencing the former one.
* Megan Whalen Turner's ''[[TheQueensThief The Thief]]'' implies that Gen wrote the book chronicling his adventures at the request of his sovereign.
* Tried (not particularly effectively) by WilliamGoldman in ''The Color Of Light''. It's glaringly obvious throughout the novel that it's an edited version of his own life, including tons of shoutouts to his previous stories. The novel ends with him deciding to turn his life into a novel. It's a pointless ending at best.

* The {{Channel 4}} {{Teletext}} soap opera ''Park Avenue'' ended with one of the characters announcing that he'd successfully sold a soap opera based on the street to ORACLE. FridgeLogic when you consider that ''Park Avenue'' was full of topical references, and had started four years earlier...
