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 snipping from The Choice, book 2 in my vampire trilogy, that’ll be out on January 5!
RELEASE BLITZ (with ARC REVIEW option) info is at the bottom of the post.

As a freshly turned vampire, Neil had frozen in panic when he’d found himself face-to-face with his ex-boyfriend, Cameron. Neil thought that misstep and its associated danger was all in the past, 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 blood-mate, 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? Or is redemption only a flamethrower away?

This is a scene from Chapter 4. Two people, Dennis and Cameron, have become a risk to the vampire faction, threatening to expose them. They are being presented with a choice. Join them—and have as much to lose by exposure as the existing vamps—or die. In this scene, faction leader Albert is confronting them.

From Albert’s 3rd-person POV:
This week’s snippet:
Neil stiffened beside Albert and hung his head for a few beats. When he looked up again, he peered at Cameron. “I’m so sorry I screwed up when I ran into you. It was my very first day out on my own, and…well, there’s no good excuse.”
Cameron bit his lip, and his head faintly bobbed. He didn’t speak, wisely holding back whatever he might have wanted to say. Dennis held in his words, too, but let out what could best be described as an under-his-breath snort.
The Choice is a 28,700 word novella, book #2 in The Faction series. While I tried to include enough backstory so readers who start with this book won’t be completely lost, I highly recommend first reading book #1, The Recruit, which sets up my unique vampire world and the drama that wasn’t as resolved as our heroes had thought.

ARC REVIEW OPTION is available, and since it’s highly recommended that book 1: The Recruit be read first, that book is also available to reviewers.

LOL that snort! I need to read this book. Vampires are perfect for January! 🙂
Woo! Thank you! (whispers Vampires are cool year round 😁)
Heh, he snorts in the face of danger! He got spirit, got to say…
LOL…he might want to put a slight damper on that spirit when it comes to insulting Albert’s blood-mate, though. Just sayin’. 😉
I vote we keep Cameron and do away with Dennis.
Maybe poor Dennis is just misunderstood? Then again maybe not. Who knows? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Loving these vampire snippets – just added The Recruit to my kindle for Christmas reading 🙂
Thank you so much! Hope you enjoy it! 😁💖
Gotta love a snarky vampire. 🙂
Sounds like Dennis might be walking a wire here.
That he is! ❤️
Not sure the snort was the best idea…
Probably not! 😏❤️
