Rainbow Snippet Sept. 24

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 formatting (yey, we are finished with edits) and 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  after Nicky wrecks his bike.

They began packaging Nicky onto a backboard and gurney for the ride to the hospital. River kept hoping he’d at least give the crowd a thumbs up, but he was so still.
The next thing River knew, Terry was flat on his back in the dirt, with Vic looming over him.
“You son of a bitch!” Vic snarled.
“I didn’t mean for him to get hurt,” Terry pleaded.

“Yeah, ’cause you haven’t been ripping him to pieces for weeks! Well, good job, Terry. Congratulations, you won!”
