Rainbow Snippets: February 6-7, 2016

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…


Two in as many decades, a veritable flood of tears if the centuries could speak. Witherby indulged himself in yet another dialogue with Regret, his constant companion.

“Once there was a youth whom I loved,” he said aloud. “And he loved me. The world was younger than this old harridan time. But the world turns, stars fall, and youth fades away. I didn’t think it was possible to find and to love another like him.”

    Interesting. Is this a time travelling story? I like an historical with a difference.

    More and more layers to Witherby. Please keep writing and posting this; I’m really intrigued and want to know more about him. And Fox and why Fox was in the middle of the street, and… Yeah, just keep writing and posting.

    OH, this is a sad snippet. I hope he finds another love.

    Aww, that’s sad. He sounds lonely.

    So sad. This story just keeps getting more and more intriguing.

    Wait… Does “I didn’t think” means that he has already changed his mind about it? Hm, it’s getting more and more intriguing.

    You have such a gorgeous way of writing; it’s almost like poetry without overdoing it. I love the last few lines of this in particular.
