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.
Today’s snippet comes once more from Choosing Home which is available for preorder next Tuesday 31st May here. The blurb is below. I’m also having an author chat tomorrow at 2pmEST/6pmGMT. You can find more information in the previous blog post. I hope you’ll pop in. I’ll be talking about my new series and anything else that arises. In this snippet things have moved on between Zac and Seth. Oh and there’s Ron again.
Zac took the mugs out of the microwave and brought them over. He sat on the sofa then leaned over and petted Ron, who immediately rubbed against his legs, covering his trousers in ginger fur. Ron rolled onto his back.
“You are a complete tart, cat, and if you think I’m falling for rubbing your tummy so you can dig your claws into my hand, you’ve another think coming.” He picked up the cocoa and blew on it before taking a sip.
“So, these exercises.” Zac raised his eyebrows and Seth noted the mischievous look in his eyes.
Hmm, this sounds very familiar (glances at Cinnamon on the floor, who grooms herself innocently) :)ReplyDelete
Hahaha! I love the cat. "You're a complete tart." Yep, big ball of truth right there.ReplyDelete
Side note: reading about blowing on hot cocoa made me sweat. It's about 85 degrees here! Hot drinks are the last thing on my mind, LOL.
Love the cat interaction! :DReplyDelete
LOL @ the cat. I was only fooled once. (I wasn't familiar with that ploy, having been raised with dogs.)ReplyDelete
That cat will get the belly rub, I'm sure ;)ReplyDelete
Haha. Cats are all tarts. I'm curious to hear about the exercises.ReplyDelete
Haha... love the cat. Don't go near the tummy for two of mine, but the third loves tummy rubs. :-)ReplyDelete
Love the cozy, relaxed feel of this, with the cocoa and cat interaction.ReplyDelete
Thanks everyone for the lovely comments.ReplyDelete
