#RainbowSnippets Sept. 16, 2017 – ’Til Death do Us Part

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!

In celebration of its upcoming release in audiobook format, this week’s snippet is a scene from ’Til Death Do Us Part. This is from one of the early flashback scenes and picks up immediately where I left off last week where Henry was lamenting a recent rejection he’d received from Sam.

Scene background: Sam and Henry are merely business acquaintances at this point, and they’ve recently arrived in the Solomon Islands on a research trip.

Told from Henry’s 3rd-person POV.

Part 1 – Posted 2-Sept-2017

“Thanks, but no.”

That had been the polite but decisive and unquestionably short answer Sam had given Henry. They’d been eating dinner and Henry had worked up the nerve to invite Sam back to his room for a drink. Sam had blushed. Obviously he’d known that Henry was hoping for more than a drink. That’s what Sam had declined.

Goddammit.

Part 2 - Posted 9-Sept-2017

Henry couldn’t work up any regret for having tried. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, after all. He’d been mooning after the man all year, although he was reasonably sure he’d hidden it well behind a professional demeanor.

He admired everything about Sam. His intelligence, his passion for his work, even his shy and reserved manners that were so different from his own. The fact that he found the man fascinatingly eye-catching was just icing on the cake.

This week’s new snippet:

Rainbow Snippet 16-Sept-2017 - ’Til Death Do Us Part (Chap. 3 Flashback Scene, Part 3)

He wasn’t conventionally handsome—his nose was a little too large, and his ears stuck out adorably—but the man had the most beautiful blue eyes that reminded Henry of well-worn denim, and a killer grin. The best thing about that grin was that its wearer obviously had no idea the effect it had on people—or at least on Henry.

Henry made his way down the breakfast buffet line and filled his plate. He didn’t see Sam in the room yet and hoped his colleague wasn’t going to avoid him now. Henry didn’t want things to be awkward between them.

’Til Death Do Us Part is currently available in both ebook and print formats. I can’t narrow down the precise release date for the audiobook, but the release blitz is scheduled for Thursday, 12-October. The target release date is “sometime shortly before that.”

If you’ve been following along, you’ll notice that date has shifted back a few weeks. It’s my first audiobook and in my ignorance I underestimated the time allowance for proofing/editing/etc.

    1. I know! I’m the same way. I love to write and read about regular everyday people that we can all relate to. Not that I don’t appreciate the occasional hunky alpha male, too, but this is my go-to. ❤️
