#rainbowsnippets: Untitled WIP #3


“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 weekend 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:


I’ve been absent from the group for more than a few weekends now and finally got back some time to devote to posting, reading, and commenting.

The creative process always surprises me and gifted me with this paranormal story idea some time ago–a hidden kingdom somewhere in the mountains between China and Nepal in the 19th century.  Of which I know nothing about, or shifters for that matter, but I’m looking forward to delving deeper into the story in the future.

It’s been awhile, so previous snippets are here:

Shin growled, crouched as if to attack and then executed a short hop. Rising out of the grass with the struggling mouse in his jaws made the children closest to him giggle. He pranced about, ever the clown, tossing the squeaking thing in the air.  Having teased it enough, he let it go, which made his tutor raise his eyebrows and turn to me with a question in his eyes. I knew my son.  It was not a tender heart that made him let the mouse go, but nerves.

    Hey I remember the 1st time you posted a snippet of this. Such a cool idea! I haven’t read shifer stories for a while but a hidden kingdom sounds so exciting!

    What vivid, gorgeous description, which brings Shin and his environment to life!

    I like that there are three intriguing characters in that one little snip…
