“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 established authors posting bits from their WIPs and new releases:
First there was Hitting Black Ice and its much-hated, fast-lipped antagonist Nick Truman, corrupt FBI agent. In the sequel, Send Lawyers, Guns, and Roses, Nick’s true situation comes to light, and so begins his redemption arc. I’m giving him a chance to tell his story and to find love. It’s still a work in progress, about half way there, and the title is His Dark Reflection.
Nick wasn’t sure if he should be relieved to see the beater, but there it was, safe and sound in the parking lot of the dive that sat on the edge of his neighborhood. Pulling out the keys, paranoia slammed into him. He glanced around, heart pounding, swallowing hard. It appeared no one was watching, so he took off his jacket and squirmed under the car to look for a bomb or a tracking device. He opened the hood and found nothing suspicious there, either.
Too many people still wanted him dead. Maybe that was the only thing keeping him alive—he wasn’t about to give any of them the fucking satisfaction. But like a character from an old Jim Thompson novel, he didn’t believe he was going to survive his story anyway.
