Rainbow Snippets May 20-21

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:


The Doctor And The Mechanic (The Promenade Series Book One) released yesterday. Which I began releasing snippets of here. And now it’s available on Amazon.

Today, I’m redoing an old story for a collection coming soon from Beaten Track Publishing. This is the story of artists, of lost love, depression, anxiety, insecurity, found love and a HEA. I give you a revamped beginning to The Red Square. the Los Angeles Times 2-15-1969

Small town folk artist Joan Brash dies in car crash on the Pasadena Freeway, traveling through the Arroyo Seco region. Her car crashed into the center divider, flipped several times and all occupants within were dead instantly. Her twin brother, cartoonist James Brash survives her. Their work in the Canal House has been memorialized in a book by James.

James flips through the large sketch book, taping the edge of the obituary back in place.

Nice backstory and I love the touch of taping the edge of the clipping back in place. It gives the sense that it has been there long enough for the tape to lose its stickiness.

That’s a great beginning. And I agree that the last line gave me a chill.

How sad, and a nice way to show James’ backstory.
