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!
This week I’m once again snipping from Of Rats and Cats, a comedic short story that’ll be coming out at JMS Books sometime in November (tentatively on the 10th).
No context needed, this is the opening scene. Note, the story is unedited at this time, so everything is subject to change. For an easy refresher of previous posts in this thread, toggle open the spoiler tag, below.
Told from Raymond’s 3rd-person POV:
This week’s snippet:
Of Rats and Cats is a short story, meet-cute, detailing the humorous get-together of two otherwise regular guys, leading average lives. The story ends with a solid happy-for-now where we are left to imagine them continuing their relationship as they traipse, without further issue, toward their eventual HEA.
