Weekends means Rainbow Snippets-time here on the blog, since I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. According to their description, “it’s 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 of even 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).”


I continue where I left off last week. The snippet is from my new untitled WIP, Benji is the bartender at The Broken Brick Bar (from Cinnamon Eyes), and Mr. Grunge is a newcomer.

Approaching the bar, Mr. Grunge eyed the other customers and placed himself in the corner, as if he wanted to be as far away from everybody as he possibly could, and then waited his turn patiently.

Intriguing. In Benji’s experience, people usually elbowed their way to the front, as if they would die of thirst if they didn’t get their beer right this minute. This was new. With two quick steps, Benji stood before the newcomer.

“Welcome to the BB-Bar. What can I get you?” He smiled, but held back on his usual flirtiness. There was something about the guy’s posture that screamed he wouldn’t be susceptible to it.


You can find me on FacebookTwitter, or Goodreads. Feel free to stop by and say Hi! I love new friends!

I’ve also gotten a Facebook profile for my pen name, so if you feel like it, I would love to be your friend 🙂

  7. Grunge, Interesting name choice. He sounds decent enough, just not in the mood for social BS at present…. my general mood most days.
