Rainbow Snippets: WIP Fox Madison

Disco Party Ball with Colorful Flames-Lights. Great Background for Music-Dance Events.

“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 well-established authors posting bits from their WIPs and new releases:


I’ve added a page for the snippets that have gone before: https://velvetpanic2.wordpress.com/rainbow-snippets/

Here’s another 6 sentences for an untitled WIP, a bit more of  the M/M romance paranormal/historical today…Fox has apparently woken up and found himself standing in the middle of the lane in mid 18th century Boston, on the waterfront…


That might be a cause for forgetfulness. Fox scrubbed his fingers against his scalp under the cap, but found no tender or bruised spots. He walked back the way he must have come for a few yards to the great glass window beside the door of the darkened shop. He reached up but did not touch the gilded letters that spelled out its name: Snort and Witherby. Brushing his fingers lightly over the name Witherby, a sad resonance traveled through him.

The shutter above rattled open. Startled, Fox took a step back and looked up.

      It was a real shop on the Cambridge/Arlington line in Massachusetts, a long long time ago…second hand, top shelf–they had a gold baby grand in the window. I just love the name, too 🙂

    Oh intriguing. I want to know what has happened (and will happen) to him.

    Wonder who’s up there? And why does the name fill him with sorrow? Interesting!
