Rainbow Snippet April 16

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+. 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.

I would invite everyone to please come check out the Rainbow Snippets group, click on a link, read and comment on the writing available and get involved yourselves in this awesome exercise. The link to the group can be found HERE

Today's snippet is from my current work in progress Serpent's Kiss. (A Snakeshifter Novel) 

“When you said early, I didn’t quite think you meant before the will-o-the wisps faded.”

“They have faded,” Zaiden informed him, but his eyes were raking over Darian’s bare chest in a manner that wasn’t as detatched as he usually seemed. “You should take a shower and then dress, while you do, I’ll explain how today is going to go.”

“You’re gonna explain it to me while I’m in the shower?”

“Somehow I have the impression that you do not have a modesty issue.”

“You’d be right, but I was pretty god da-errr, pretty sure you did.”

“And what gave you that impression?”


  1. Nice. :-) Sounds like a fun scene coming up!

  2. Loved how you wove plot, romantic tension, and character development within the dialogue! (heart)

  3. Nice exchange, and it sounds like it's leading to an interesting scene :)

  4. LOL, this is great. I sense this is about to get very, very interesting for at least one of them. ;)

  5. Get the feeling things are going to hot up.
