Rainbow Snippets September 24-25

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.

Eventually, he fell into a drifting, restless slumber, chased by dreams where he was repeatedly humiliated on a stage in front of his former boys and his current Scene followers. In one dream, instead of the boys taking their proper punishments, they were punishing him, laughing at him as he protested—the same way he’d always laughed at them if they were stupid enough to try to use a safeword. Safewords were for fakers, for posers. His boys didn’t have safewords.

Now, neither did he.

Ignoring a safe word, at least I know that is a no-no.

Seems to me those dreams turned into reality would be a fitting punishment for him.

A perfect sense of tension slowly climbs with each word, drawing us into your main character’s world. Beautifully done!
