Rainbow Snippet Sept 10.

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

This weeks snippet, last last weeks, is from Racing the Sky, currently in edits it's slated to be released through Wayward Ink later this fall. My dirt bike themed story with a bit of May/December romance, I fell in love with Nicky, Vic, River and Gray when they first popped into my head in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I hope in time some of you will come to love them too. This scene is from the first meeting between Nicky and Gray. 

Looking at the big man, who was watching him from the far end of the counter, Nicky gave a tense smile. “Could I, umm, have another slice of pie? Apple this time, please.”
The man laughed. “How about ice cream with that?”
“Sure. Maybe I’ll die of a sugar overdose.”
They were alone in the diner, save for the guy on the grill in the back.
“You know,” the man began, “there are some fun ways to burn off sugar, if you’re interested. I get off in an hour.”
Nicky shivered, partly in fear and partly in anticipation. He could say yes, easy. Hell, it wasn’t as if Terry had even waited for them to break up before he’d moved on to someone else. Still, Nicky had never been with anyone but Terry, and this was a stranger, even if he was friendly as hell.

“Think about it,” the guy said before he headed to the back.


  1. I'm not sure if he really wants to say yes or if it would just be a way to tell Terry to go to hell.

  2. Oh the temptations here.

  3. Can't decide which is more appealing, the pie or the man's offer.

  4. Go on, Nicky, you know you want to :)
