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!
I’m snipping from The Recruit, a 21k-word novella that’s now available at JMS Books (and all the usual distributors).
For context, Phillip has been selected for recruit by the local vampire faction. He was approached by Albert while walking in the park, and an offer to join the vampires’ ranks has been extended.

Told from Phillip’s 3rd-person POV.

“I found The Recruit to be different and interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
—ButtonsMom2003, Xtreme Delusions
“The world building in this story is very detailed and well thought out.” ~ “The Recruit is an enjoyable story, and I hope we haven’t seen the last of this world as I’d love to read more about it.”
—Anne Barwell, Drops of Ink
“Albright does not allow her imagination to be confined by tropes in The Recruit and it is a enjoyable story that I would recommend.”
—Kirsty, Joyfully Jay
“The author has taken the same old staid vampire mythos/legend/trope/whatever and turned it inside out, upside down, put it through a complete overhaul, and then wove it back together into a fresh, new, original, fantastic, fascinating and definitely different tale. I was completely hooked from cover to cover.”
