#rainbowsnippets: Last Dance

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 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:


A few years ago, our critique group hosted holiday flash fiction blog hops, about four a year. Last Dance was a 1200 word microfiction for Halloween, but I always thought there was more to Joey and Rocco….so this is the new opening for the revised version…


Before the immediate onset of a seizure, many epileptics see auras or smell something terrible; for me that soft summer evening, my aura appeared as the ghost of Donna Summer.

Only a few moments before I unimpressed my sister’s new husband by falling down at her wedding and knocking into the other guests like the first domino, I’d been following the moves of the hot Italian guy dancing with one of the bridesmaids.

Rocco, whispered my heart. Friend of the groom. Tall and tanned with thick, curling black hair; a gold earring winked behind one of those curls. He danced with the tip of his tongue showing between his lips, intent and smiling.

    Love the description of his pre-seizure state and I do feel sorry for the poor guy.

    A lovely fantasy and calamity. I have this feeling Joey will capture Rocco’s heart no matter what.
