Rainbow Snippets



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!).”

Don’t forget to like my page on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I’d also be happy to become friends on Facebook if you’d like 😁


Today’s snippet is a continuation from last week. Here’s the link if you need to be reminded.

And I know, I know. It’s more than 6 sentences. Sue me 😉

The visitor knocked again, a little harder this time. I groaned, put the book down, and contemplated pretending I wasn’t home. Who was visiting at—I glanced at my watch—nine thirty a Friday night anyway? I’d carefully trained everyone I knew to always call or text before coming over.

Sighing, I ran my fingers through my hair and tucked the unruly strands behind my ears. If the lights hadn’t been on, I would have ducked down in front of the couch with my hands over my ears and ignored whoever was banging on my door. Instead, I got up, marched through my house, and yanked the door open a little more forcefully than strictly necessary.

And just like that, my world came to a halt.


My WIP is coming along nicely, but I have to kick it up a notch because I’ve got a deadline approaching. I have a tentative title for it, Promise me we’ll be okay, but I haven’t decided 100% yet. What do you think? 🙂
