Rainbow Snippet May 27

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 books are now available through Amazon and Amazon KU. Guitars and Cages can be found HERE at a special reissue price of .99. While Guitars and Choices can be found HERE!  

This will be the final snippet from the Guitars books, next week, I'll have a little bit from ...And all Shall Fade to Black. 

In this snippet, I pick up just a few lines from last weeks. 

Earl’s voice was laced with anger when he spoke next. “Gage never said anything about a whip.”

“The old man didn’t use it on him,” Asher managed, his voice barely above a whisper.

Earl was silent for a moment. “No, but he used it on you, didn’t he.”

Asher said nothing, let the duck of his head be the only confirmation the older man needed.

“Son of a bitch,” Earl spat, his fists clenching. “If I’d known, I’d have given him a taste of that whip myself.”

“And then what,” Asher asked. “End up in jail with him? Wasn’t worth it.”

Earl turned Asher to look at him. “My son thought you were worth a damn sight more than you seem to think you are. And I’m willing to bet if you gave him half a chance, your son would think you were worth a damn sight more than you give yourself credit for, Asher. This here, this is exactly why you will never be like your old man.”
