Revisiting Dickens

I recently undertook the challenge of writing a sequel to Charles Dickens’ classic story, “A Christmas Carol”. You may think that writing a short story revisiting some of the best known characters in English literature would be quite simple, but this has been the most challenging story I’ve ever written.

UPDATE: You can now purchase the expanded and revised story, entitled “Finding Scrooge,” in hardback or eBook. The historical notes in this post have been expanded and added as an exclusive feature of that publication.

You can purchase Finding Scrooge from all major booksellers worldwide on December 1st, 2018! Find out more from AJ Charleson Publishing LLC.

Merry Christmas, and God bless us everyone!
