Rainbow Snippets May 21-22


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, this is much further along in my current #WIP, PS. Prior to this, Gus has just gotten to the point where he’s frustrated with everything, picture a man sitting on the ground, at the end of his rope.


I was out-of-shape, my boots looked pristine, as though I’d just brought them out of the box this morning. I nodded my head, not speaking, still stuck on the lime green truck. It looked like an old Ford, my pop had one that had been his pops and he didn’t give it to me, because he said fags didn’t drive american made trucks. I hated my dad for that shitty remark.

“I was told you might be in need of an electrician.” He walked towards me, his boots like mine only in make, however his were used and worked in.

Ouch! I hate his dad for that remark too. Hopefully the newcomer will make different kinds of sparks fly? (And I’m guessing Gus isn’t very good at do it yourselfing?)

That truck is a telling point.

My guess is that the fella with the worn boots disproves “dear old pop’s” remark.

Yeesh. His father’s comment is awful and a half. I hope Mr. Used-and-worked-in Boots doesn’t feel the same way.
