Rainbow Snippet Nov. 12

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 newest, as yet untitled WIP which is also one of two NaNo projects I am working on this month. 

Sometimes he wondered if there would be anyone left to miss him besides the colors, and what would happen to him once they all faded away.

“I wish I could see the world the way he saw it,” Rick finally admitted. “All lit up with fireflies and flower children, electric blue snakes slithering through midnight streets while the ghosts banged buffalo drums and sang to the old gods of the desert.”

“Morrison…or Erik?”


“Sometimes, I think Erik might be his reincarnation. That would be so cool. I wish he’d tell me though, if he is, I’ve got a billion questions for him.”

“Stranger things have happened.”

“Like me?”


  1. This is certainly intriguing. I hope you'll be sharing more of this next week.

  2. Fun snippet. Love the last line!

  3. A really beautiful snippet. Just my kind of thing I want to read it all.

  4. Lots of really gorgeous imagery in this one.
