Rainbow Snippet June 3rd

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 my newly released novel ...And All Shall Fade to Black available on Amazon HERE: 

“You think he’ll actually show when it counts?”
“Yeah, actually, I do. He didn’t sit there and nod occasionally and make grunts and mummers whenever I questioned something or left something open ended in the hopes that he’d chime in. He actually asked about the research I’d done into the masks, if part of my research had been watching matches. If Az was modeled off any wrestlers in particular, if I’d found any good autobiographies or histories of the sport, all sorts of things like that. He didn’t make me carry the conversation on my own, he participated in it.”
“Sure he wasn’t just saying that shit to get in your pants?”

“Fuck off, Herman. He did not kiss like he was trying to get in my pants. He kissed like he wanted to leave something new to discover the next time we got together, something you wouldn’t know anything about.”
