Rainbow Snippets April 9-10

rainbow-snippets01Rainbow 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:

PSToday’s snippet is from my current WIP, my title for it is PS. And because everyone wanted to know what happened next, so I jumped ahead a few sentences to get you what you wanted.

Sam, the man I’d hoped would work on not only my wood, but that of the building made it clear that he was actually a she and that she was a twenty-one year old creative writing student. That our entire relationship had been for her senior thesis. She’d never meant to lead me on. She didn’t believe a guy could be so lonely as to sell everything he owned and saved the money to buy a train depot based on Emails, instant messages and Skype.

I took a deep breath and asked who I’d been Skyping with. She told me it was an acting student she’d made dinner for.

Oh, this sounds like a complicated web.

Thank you, I like complications.

Wow…yes, complicated is the right word. If either Sam or the Skyping acting student is an intended love interest, they’re going to have an uphill battle regaining your MC’s trust! Sounds like a great story. 🙂

Oh ouch. Actually I’ve known people who’ve done that back in the early days of internet dating.

This could get veeeeery interesting. I do feel bad for the POV character here, though. That’s got to be devastating.

Ooooo I wonder how that knowledge is going to go down.

Oh, that must be a kick in the guts for him. There are so many con-artists on the internet and it sounds like he’s been had. I hope something good comes of this.

Complicated! I hope he can work things out and have a chance to be happy.
