This is my not-quite-Flash-Fiction-Friday post, since although it’s a short scene, I didn’t use any word or image prompts like I usually do.
I’ve actually used the 3 prompt words left for me in the comments a couple weeks ago (as well as a few additional prompts), but that bit of flash will be posting elsewhere. Look for that holiday-themed scene featuring Harrison and Mason on Nell Iris’s blog on Thursday, December 14th.
I’ve still got a bonus scene for you, though. This one is an alternate POV scene for my short story Nevermore, which can be found in my collection, Snapshots.
You can find additional bonus scenes from the stories in Snapshots, here.
This scene is told from Caesar’s 3rd-person POV:
I love short stories. Sometimes a brief “snapshot” taken from a couple’s larger story is all that’s wanted. The narrative of “how they met” is the focus of six of the shorts in this set—quirky tales ranging from meeting at a charity fundraiser, to college kids pranking each other, to a mishap at a XXX adult video arcade.
Also included is a story featuring a well-established couple’s wedding dilemma, a friends-to-lovers tale, a coming-out-of-the-closet drama, and a continuation short that follows one of those how-we-mets. Rounding out this collection is an account revisiting the main characters from my full-length novel, ’Til Death Do Us Part.
All of these stories are contemporary, although one has a bit of paranormal flavor to it. Heat ratings range from “fairly sweet” to “rather steamy.” Excepting the final story, all were originally written in 2008 and early 2009. One (“Photo Shoot”) started out as a prompt word ficlet that I later fleshed out to a more complete story. Each has received a thorough overhaul, some more extensive than others. I hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them.
Whatever your romance reading preference — gay virgin, opposites attract, friends to lovers, or simply fun how-they-met stories — this collection contains a variety of sweet, contemporary, short gay romances, sure to make you smile.
Rewritten and re-edited, these stories were previously published singly and are available now in one collection!
