Rainbow Snippets November 19-20

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:

Honestly, I’ve been having a very hard time writing since the election. I gave up finishing my Peruvian love story, because the guys aren’t talking to me right now. But, yesterday I managed to write nearly the exact same amount of the Peru story I had already written. Who’s talking to me? A seventeen year old guy named Griffin and the world around him.

I started writing a dystopian story, loosely based on what’s been going on with our current situation. This will be published under my real name, so I’m going ahead and using the cover I created for it. It’s a dystopian story that happens to have gay characters in it. It’s called Overalls – It’s over all of us, but it’s not all over. This is just after the MC Griffin meets a guy named Asher.

“Oh, Griffin, no one is from here anymore. When the bombs fell, the people inside ran away, if they weren’t killed. Do you know who the bombs came from?” Asher leaned against a car that was half on the sidewalk, pieces of which had been ripped off. And before Griffin could answer, Asher responded. “Russia, our newest ally.”

Ooh, shiver me timbers. I know…I have no idea where that came from. I happen to love the name Asher and I happen to love the creepiness of that. Want more
