Rainbow Snippet #6

Here we go with the week 5 Snippet. For those who might be new, Rainbow Snippets is a group of "Writers and bloggers who post 6 sentences of LGBTQ+ fiction or a book rec on their blogs or websites and link to it to the comments section of the group. which can be found here. There are plenty of writers to explore and enjoy so please follow the think and give your support to them. 

This weeks snippet is from Guitars and Cages 2, which is currently set to be submitted to my publisher, Wayward Ink, on January 15th (or perhaps before). 

I wanna line my stomach with real food before you start serving me up snails, eels, foie gras and that patty crap.”

Conner scrunched up his nose, blinked, confusion written all over his face as he looked at Asher,” What in the world are you talking about?”

“That duck liver stuff, God that’s disgusting, and I don’t care who it offends, I do not eat caviar, ever Conner, I mean it,” Asher said, sticking out his tongue like a little kid.  

 Conner couldn’t help but laugh. “Oh God you mean pate.”

“Yeah, patty, sheesh that’s what I said,” Asher grumbled.

“No. Pate,” Conner corrected, emphasizing the enunciation.

“I don’t care how you say it; it looked like a patty of ground up, uncooked meat to me.”

For those who might be interested in Guitars and Cages, you can read more about it Here. Check out a sample chapter, and feel free to explore the rest of the site.

  2. I'm on Asher's side.

    I'm curious about these two -- seems like they're from different worlds.

    1. They are, but they have more in common than they do differences. :)
