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.
“Soda water with a wedge of lime, please.” Mr. Grunge was well articulated and polite. Benji approved. Tucking dark coffee locks behind his ears, Mr. Grunge looked up. Pain shone from big caramel eyes, framed with thick, sooty lashes, and and hit Benji right in the stomach, as if someone had head-butted him while wearing a football helmet.
Oups, I think I cheated and only gave you five sentences! Sorry 😇
I’ve also gotten a Facebook profile for my pen name, so if you feel like it, I would love to be your friend 🙂
