Rainbow Snippets – 27.08.17


This is just a quickie to say WHOOHOO!

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’s snippet is from Longing for Shelter OUT NOW…well, on Payhip anyway. Amazon and B&N coming soon.
In which Ephraim and Seth have a heart-to-heart as only two teenage boys can.


“What about you? You sure talk like you’ve made someone’s bed bang the wall.”
“Not a bed.” Seth grimaced, especially when he saw Ephraim’s scandalized expression and felt the heat rising in his own cheeks. “I mean, I’ve had kisses and more than kisses, much more but—I haven’t—I mean I haven’t done—that. Other stuff. Just not…”
To his surprise, Ephraim simply nodded and said, “Good,” and added quietly, “Means you have something to offer your mate. When you find him.”
Seth nodded shyly, but then looked up, his head tilted. “What makes you think my mate would be a man?”
Ephraim laughed. “You’re not as subtle as you think, city boy.”

    Loved this conversation. Seth tripped himself up in such a sweet awkward manner.

    Ha! I’ve been privy to teenage boy conversations (yeah, my son and his friends are not as quiet as they think they are). This is pretty typical of their talk. Nicely done!
