Twelve Days of Christmas, Day 3 - The Christmas Throwaway

Sequels & things

One question I always get is *Will there be a sequel to The Christmas Throwaway*?

My answer is always no, and I think I feel this way because even though I have an entire novel in my head as a sequel I find it impossible to imagine I would do it justice.

TCT is my best selling book, along with Texas 1, and I have so many emails about it, lovely beautiful emails that tell me that this is their favorite book. How can I even top that? Thing is maybe, one day, I'll feel like I can write it.

What do you think? Should I leave it? Or would you forgive me if I completely fucked it up? LOL.

The Christmas Throwaway

Christmas is a time for giving - what do you do when no one gives a damn?

For Zachary Weston Christmas means sleeping on a churchyard bench in the freezing snow with nothing better in his future. Thrown out of his home for being gay, he is left without money or, it seems, anywhere to go. Until a stranger shows him that some people do give a lot more than a damn.

Ben Hamilton is a rookie cop in his small home town. He finds a young throwaway, fresh from the city, sleeping on a bench in the churchyard on a snowy Christmas Eve. Can he be the one to give Zachary his own Christmas miracle?

  1. Ooh, tough call.
    I think if you did do the follow up, skipping forward quite a few years rather than where TCT ended

  2. I think you could do a sequel justice and your fans would love. I do think you have to be ready or you won't be satisfied and that's just as important; maybe more so, than fan appreciation. Whatever you decide your fans will still be here reading whatever you write. :)

  3. I would absolutely love a sequel because I love The Christmas Throwaway. And I don't believe you wouldn't do it justice. But I'll completely understand if you decide not to write it. Doesn't mean I won't keep wishing, though. :D

  4. I loved The Christmas Throwaway. I would love to find out what happened next, maybe even more on Zach's sister?

  5. I loooove The Christmas Throwaway because it was my first bok by R.J. so whatever it's related to it, it's a win-win for me.
