Rainbow Snippets October 1-2

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:

All links can be found at Beaten Track Publishing. If you are attending GRL in October and you’d like a paperback delivered and signed there, this link is just for you.  7 With 1 Blow releases 10/21. Warning: This is not a kids book, some naughty stuff might creep in.  Today’s scene continues a little further along from last week.

“Water,” grunted a low voice. A tin bowl was shoved into the opening. Before he could get his throat to work for more than a half-baked cry, the door slammed down and the owner of the voice was gone.

He picked up the bowl and drank thirstily, welcoming the coolness of the water as it hit his parched and aching throat. He finished about half of it and then considered. What if this was all the water he’d get?

Nice showing of his circumstances.

(And I almost misread that last line as “where was all this water going to go?” I obviously need more sleep. Or a long vacation.)

I still love that cover. And the rest of the story too, of course. 🙂

Excellent description, conveying a gritty reality without slowing down the action.

He’s in a dire situation isn’t he?

That would be a hard decision–drink it all now or save some for later. Way to ratchet up the tension! 🙂
