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. The following Snippet is from Guitars and Choices, the sequel to my debut novel Guitars and Cages. Both will be available on May 26th.
“How about the barn, how’s it looking?” Earl asked as they passed it for the third time with Asher making no motion to go inside.
He froze. He still hadn’t been back in that barn. “I-I don’t know.”
Earl blinked, studying him, and then looking back at the barn. “Ain’t been back inside yet, have you?”
“No, sir,” Asher muttered, head down. “I-I can’t, I-I don’t wanna…”
“You can, and you have to,” Earl told him, steel in his voice. “Not gonna do you any good to be working the ranch, especially come calving and foaling time, if you can’t bring yourself to go in the barn.”
