Rainbow Snippets #06


I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “Rainbow Snippets is 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 or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).” Pretty cool, eh? Don’t forget to “Like” my Facebook page and/or my Facebook profile while you’re over there checking out this fantastic group!

Today I’ll give you one more snippet from ’Til Death Do Us Part (now available at JMS Books), then next week I think I’ll switch over to snippets from a WIP, tentatively titled To Love and to Cherish, which is a spin-off story from ’Til Death, featuring an important supporting character from the first story (because, dammit, he deserves an HEA, too).

A little background leading into this week’s snippet:

Henry, together with two men (Garrett and Devon) and an older baby (“Buddy”) have survived a plane crash and made it to to a small island. Henry is the first-person POV MC in this scene, where they’ve just been discussing how discouraged they are that they haven’t been rescued yet (after 1 week). BTW, Devon is the one replying to Garrett’s comment.

“Doesn’t matter,” said Garrett. “When they widen the search zone to cover our location, they’ll find us whether they’re looking for live people or not.”

“I just hope they find us before they give all my shit away to Goodwill or something.”

We were silent for a few moments after that. Hell, it was likely a legitimate concern that I hadn’t yet considered.

Buddy broke the silence with, “Mamamamamama?”

Today is the final day to save 20% (bonus, you’ll get the full set of formats–EPUB, MOBI, PDF, HTML) by purchasing direct from JMS Books. Click either of the images, below, for all the other buy-links and misc. info.

  1. For someone who doesn’t have a big vocabulary, that baby has a lot of personality. LOL! I agree, though, it would be awful to get rescued only to find out you sort of didn’t exist anymore.

  2. LOL! I love how the thought gives them all pause.

    I also love your strapline: ‘Stories that make you smile.’ Brilliant. Should be more of it. 🙂
