Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook Group that invites authors to post six sentences of their work each weekend. It can be from anything you like, your current WIP, a recent release, the golden oldie that even you had forgotten you had written, or just a scrap of an idea (as long as it has six coherent sentences). Nothing of your own work worth mentioning? How about a six sentence review of your favourite LGBTQ+ story.
This week’s snippet comes from A Bell Rings again. You can now get it on early download from Pride Publishing or pre-order from Amazon. This is the sequel to Not Every Time. Jack wakes up and has no memory of his partner Raziel, but when he finds a new person to share his flat, there is something familiar and unsettling about the man.
“Jack, are you all right?”
Jack nodded. “Just dizzy. I need caffeine and sugar.” Eyes wide, he stared ahead, not able to do anything else. His hand itched to reach out and touch a droplet of water which had fallen from Raz’s head and was making its way down his chest.
Caffeine and sugar...the right fix to so many problems :-)ReplyDelete
I get such a strong visual of the two of them watching the water, while Jack keeps sneaking glances at Raz. A very beautiful moment.ReplyDelete
Great description. And I could use a little caffeine and sugar myself today. (All right -- a lot of caffeine and sugar.)ReplyDelete
Nicely written - very evocative.ReplyDelete
loved the descriptionsReplyDelete
I'm so with Jack on the caffeine and sugar. Eh, I'm probably with him on Raz's gorgeous eyes, too. LOL!ReplyDelete
Sexy in an understated way... very nice snippet!ReplyDelete
Thanks for all the lovely comments.ReplyDelete
Very nice! I'm urging Jack to just do it. :)ReplyDelete
Great description. Lovely snippet.ReplyDelete
I love how overwhelmed he is and all the water imagery.ReplyDelete
