Rainbow Snippets April 2-3

rainbow-snippets01

“Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQIA authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).

In this group you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQIA. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.”

Welcome to another Saturday filled with Rainbow Snippets!

The link below will take you to the public Facebook group where you find both new and established authors posting bits from their WIPs and new releases:

Today’s snippet is from my current WIP, my title for it is PS. We start at the beginning. It’s best to start at the beginning.

PSMy theme song had become Stronger by Kelly Clarkson. I wanted to believe in the words that she belted in my ears, the song that had been playing on repeat since I stepped off the plane in Vermont. Somewhere over Ohio, all my plans were destroyed and for a good long time all I could do was laugh.

Three hours later, I stood in front of the train station, a backpack at my feet and a coffee cup in my hand. The coffee long gone cold. I stood there and said repeatedly, “What the fuck am I doing here?” It was boarded up, looking exactly like the pictures the real estate agent sent me.

I think “real estate agent” and “train station” are an intriguing combination.
