Rainbow Snippets April 29-30


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 six 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:

I’m working on the third go round of edits for The Doctor and The Mechanic. It’s the first in a series, and I’ve changed the series title from At the Brass Lamp, to On the Promenade. It’s a little place in downtown Long Beach, CA. Where all the couples will either work or live. The first couple is Lawrence & Curtis. I’ve got ideas for The Architect & The Cop, The Attorney & The Barista… The sky is the limit. I will be offering this book for free, as a paperback and I’ll have a few copies on hand in a digital format too.

It’s been a while since I posted a snippet, but I thought I’d come at you with snippets from the book I’ll be offering for free through The Big Gay Fiction Giveaway, next month. One hundred authors will offer free books, running May 22nd-29th. So, without further ado, I give you a snippet from one of my favorite books I’ve written, The Scarlet Lock.

 

 

     The man in the business suit approached his table, stopped, and looked down at Brandon. The man’s left hand slipped deep into his pocket. Brandon stared, for a moment riveted to the emerald-green eyes. His gaze traveled down the crisp, white dress shirt, over the Hermes belt, to the growing tent in the man’s black slacks. Brandon’s pinkie fingertip reached to caress the fabric, and energy sparked between the two.

     With his other hand, the man pulled a wallet from his breast pocket, deposited a bill on the table and walked away.
