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 Choice, an unedited Work in Progress. This story continues The Recruit. Apparently that HEA Albert and Neil were sailing into isn’t as secure as they’d thought.
Neil thought the misstep he’d made with his ex-boyfriend when he’d been a freshly turned vampire was behind him, but Cameron’s current boyfriend, Dennis, is like a dog with a bone, and a keen imagination. When the two men’s curiosity progresses to the point the vampires consider their secrecy to be endangered, choices must be made.
Now that faction-leader Albert has a bloodmate, Neil, he finds himself second-guessing his decisions. Neil would be crushed knowing his mistake led to human deaths, but Albert shouldn’t factor that into the difficult choices he must make. Will Albert’s indecision put the entire vampire establishment in danger?
Told from Albert’s 3rd-person POV.

This Week’s Snippet:
“Not yet,” Carmen murmured.
She didn’t emphasize the word, “yet,” but the importance was clearly implied, or they wouldn’t have summoned him for the added impact of listening for himself rather than simply informing him at the progress meeting scheduled for later this afternoon.
“Has anything shown up on text or email between them?” Albert asked. They had the means of wiping that kind of trail, but it would be better to put an end to the risk before it went that far.
“Not yet.” Ivan echoed Carmen’s reply.
My vampire novella, The Recruit is available at distributors everywhere (Books2Read Universal Buy-Link | Publisher/JMS Books).
KU folks, be on the lookout because The Recruit is coming very soon to Kindle Unlimited! ♡

Uh oh, this is an ominous bit of banter…exciting snippet!
Thank you! 💞
Why do I think that there’s going to be something done to keep “not yet” from ever happening.
Teehee…and “yet,” it can’t all go too smoothly, either. 😉
Ooh. Nice! And your ‘teehee’ made me giggle. Happy Writing!
Thank you! 😘
Woot, a blurb! Yay!! 🙂
Totally subject to change at this point, but at least I’ve got something down for it. <3 🙂
Well, considering I just sent you a finished story with no blurb, you’re good!! Something is better than nothing, right? 🙂
