Rainbow Snippet – 04.05.19

 

If you’re new to Rainbow Snippets, it’s a Facebook group where authors of LGBTQ fiction post a six-sentence snippet (or there abouts) from a WIP, a published story, or a recommendation, every weekend. You can see all the snippets here.

This week… a something from the penultimate Alphas’ Homestead story, featuring a grown up Tad and a soon to be heart broken Samuel. Definitely six sentences this week…if you don’t count the dialogue.

 

“Thaddeus’s body stiffened, then slumped forward, draping himself over Samuel. “I-I’m sorry. I-I didn’t mean to…”

Samuel wrapped his arms around him and pulled him close. “Sure you did.” He huffed out a laugh and was relieved when Thaddeus did the same.

When he pulled away, Thaddeus was smiling and sweet again. “Yeah, I did. I mean I wouldn’t actually force you. My wolf just gets a bit carried away sometimes.”

Samuel smiled but it felt as if his heart was breaking. He stepped back and picked up the pitchfork, saying sadly before pulling his bandana back up, “I’m going to miss you too.””

It’s taken me far longer than it should have, but I finally managed to navigate Createspace and get the paperback edition of Home Is Where You Are up on Amazon. Fingers crossed, the edition looks okay –– although the cover turned out a little darker than shown online –– but if there are any issues you know where I am x

Rainbow Snippets – 24.07.16

Rainbow Snippet time! If you’re new to Rainbow Snippets, it’s a Facebook group where authors of LGBTQ fiction post a six-sentence snippet of a WIP, a published story, or a recommendation, every weekend. You can see all the snippets here.

This week, a few lines from Returning Home, the follow up to Home Is Where You Are, which will be out –– fingers crossed –– in about three weeks. In which the boys are heading back to New York.

Jacob snorted as the rocking carriage made their interlocked legs bump together. He looked across at his mate and tilted his head. “I believe your exact words were, Let me take you home to be married, Jacob. It’ll be romantic, Jacob. The pups will behave I promise, Jacob.”

Caleb huffed out a laugh. “Yeah, well. I don’t remember you having any objections at the time.”

“Well, given what you were doing to me at the time, you could have hardly expected otherwise.”

Today, a selfish plug for “Home Is Where You Are” which is now available for purchase : ) Reviews welcome.

…….

When Jacob’s hand came up to cup Caleb’s jaw and pull him closer, Caleb braced himself against a jolt of revulsion and disgust. It never came.

Jacob was the one to pull away this time. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to–”

Caleb caught him by the wrist and held on tight, not letting him move more than a few inches away. He grappled with his thoughts, and finally found the words to say, “I–I can’t make you any promises.”

Jacob stared for a moment, then shaking his head, whispered, “I never asked for any.”

First post of the year!! Continuing where we left off – well, not exactly but close enough – another six-ish sentences from Stumble Forward. Catch all the other snippets from lots of great authors on the Facebook page

…..

“Go home, Alec.” Stella slid out of the booth, dragging her coat behind her. Alec sat up, and started to protest but she shook her head. “Go home! It’s-” she checked her watch, “Christ, it’s one in the morning. I have to drive back to Dallas in a few hours.” She shoved her arms roughly into the sleeves of her coat, freeing her long hair from the collar with the flick of both wrists. “Go home to your giant and talk to him! I’m back in town with Mark in a couple of weeks. I’ll call you and let you know when, and then the four of us can go out and have a very awkward, very expensive dinner…on you! You owe me!”

Today’s six sentence snippet is from Stumble Forward, a little later in the story than last week’s offering. You can check out all the author’s snippets on the Rainbow Snippets Facebook page.

Alec was struck dumb for a moment. He huffed out a laugh and mirrored Ethan’s posture, saying in the same whispered tone, “I have no clue what you’re talking about.”

Ethan’s eyes widened in disbelief, and he shook his head. “Seriously? You don’t see the way he behaves? The way he looks at you?”

Rainbow Snippets – 6.12.15

I joined a new Facebook group, Rainbow Snippets, where authors can post a six sentence snippet of an existing work or wip or whatever, every weekend.

Turns out it’s blummin’ hard to pick something! It appears I write in phrases that are seven sentences long…which is interesting.

Today’s snippet is from Stumble Forward, which I’m still in the process of editing.

…..

Jack looked up at him, eyes soft and watery, his mouth moving like he wanted to say something but couldn’t find the words. Alec sat carefully on the bed next to him, peeled the fingers off his skin, and held Jack’s big hand between his two.

Jack looked like he might cry and when he spoke his voice was cracked and broken with tears. “I’m sorry. Don’t hate me…I’m so sorry.”

The tone of his words hit Alec in the chest, as real as a fist but he smiled softly, squeezed Jack’s hand and laid it on his bare chest, pulling the sheet up to cover it and whispered, “I don’t, and I know you are. I’m sorry too.” But Jack’s breath was already rasping into a snore, or at least verging on one, and the apology never reached him.
