Sequel to Sweet Dreams, Miss England

Just as often as the readers are telling me off regarding the ending of Sweet Dreams, Miss England, do I get asked about a sequel. I've been adamant that there would be no more "Nicky", but a few ideas have been floating in my mind and I've come up with a couple of possible ideas.

Here's one idea for a start. Let me know what you think!

"Good Morning, Miss Ireland'

Nicky's eyes shot wide open. "Are you sure?”
He moved the screen so it was visible for her. “Would you like to see it for yourself?”
Staring at the screen she slowly shook her head in disbelief. Her head fell back into the tiny cushion and she focused on a small dot at the ceiling. “I can’t do this. Not on my own. How - ”
She turned to look at her doctor, eyes filling with tears.
“There are ways ...”
She shook her head from side to side. “No,” she whispered. “How long?”
“I’ve got to do proper measuring, but I’d say about 12 – 14 weeks.”
Nicky was calculating in her head. About three months. Goddamn it!


  1. That pulls me right in. Great offering.

  2. Thx Sherry, much appreciated. I'm still not sure whether to go ahead with the sequel or not ....
