Rainbow Snippet May 1

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

So the last few weeks I have been treating you to pieces of my snakeshifter WIP, unfortunately, things have been so hectic that I haven't been able to work on that novel for awhile, soo, I'm switching gears today to bring you a piece from my dirtbike novel Racing the Sky which will be released later this year. 

Rubbing his temples Nicky followed them, stopping in the doorway as Terry pulled a suitcase from the back of the closet and began to pack.
“Hey,” Nicky piped up, “That’s my T-shirt.”
Terry scowled and threw it at him.
“Those are my jeans too.”
Terry held them up, looking them over before he tossed them to Nicky. “They look better on me.”

Nicky seethed as he counted to thirty and then counted to thirty again, holding his tongue rather than going off on Terry. 


  1. Interesting dynamic between these two! Wondering why one is packing.

  2. Something going on to make one of them leave and like the jeans line.

  3. I like the sound of this. Curious to know why Terry is leaving.

  4. A tense moment. Are they fighting?

  5. Love the "jeans" line. Am curious... Nicky followed "them" -- who else is there?
