Sept. 17 Rainbow Snippet

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 the Nicky and Gray's first official date, out in the woods having a picnic dinner watching a meteor shower. 

“This is amazing,” Nicky whispered as five streaks raced overhead.
Gray propped himself up on one elbow and stared down at Nicky. “You are amazing. I still want to know more, you know. That little conversation we had last night wasn’t enough.”
“Then come to the races Saturday,” Nicky half asked, half pleaded. It would be amazing to have someone there cheering just for him.
“What time?”
“First heat starts at nine.”

Leaning in, Gray slid his fingers into Nicky’s hair. “I’ll be there,” he said low, before kissing him.


  1. Aw. You tugged at my heartstrings with Nicky thinking that it would be amazing to have someone there cheering for him. It makes him sound so lonely and alone.

  2. Why wouldn't there be anyone cheering for him? Just curious��

    1. He has fans, but he has no family, he and Terry used to cheer one another on, but they broke up. Vic has been busy with school, so he hasn't attended, and his buddy River can only be there when he isn't working, so he's been feeling rather alone.

  3. Ooo I want to know what's going on with Oakley
