Rainbow Snippets – 16.01.16


Today’s snippet is from my short story, Something Beginning With ‘V’ which is going to be available from Love Lane Books on 12th Febuary, in their Valentine Delights anthology. I’m fricken excited as it’ll be my first published thingy. I’m really trying to be cool about the whole thing, but yeah…like I said. Excited : )

Don’t forget to check out all the other snippets on the Facebook page.


When he finished laughing, he sighed heavily, exhausted by the whole situation, and scrubbed his hands roughly over his face. “No. No plans. I think Erin was threatening to drag me to some Valentine-rejects-speed-dating-mixer…thing before her date but malfunctioning elevator notwithstanding, there’s no way in hell I’d go to that. Sometimes, I swear she has money down on me getting laid.”

Elliot opened his mouth to answer, but the intercom crackled into life, and in his rush to stand, Daniel completely missed Elliot murmur quietly, “You’re not a reject.”
