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 now called E Pluribus Unum, the first in a trilogy called Overalls – It’s over all of us, but it’s not all over. This is a little after we’ve met Griffin and Asher.
Asher seemed like an unusual guy, but honestly, since his chosen were scattered to the winds, he had to take what he’d found. He followed Asher into the rubble of books down the hallway of Presidents, where the painting of the forty-fifth had been destroyed, beside it hung Aubrey, her beautiful tanned face holding a smile. She was dressed in white, because she was their savior. She’d managed to get every last man, woman, and child on board with the secession. The maps were drawn with new territories, the far eastern parts of California and Oregon deciding to remain with the Old Republic Union, what a stupid name they gave themselves.
As Griffin descended the stairs, he’d remembered sitting in his aunts office with all the new territories drawn. Nevada Free State, The territory of New Colorado, and how the East Coast joined the Canadian Territories the moment Fowler decided to move DC to Central Texas.
