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 Cultivating Love. I figure tomorrow’s St. Patrick’s Day…this has a green cover…eh…it’s as close as I’ve got to anything in-theme. ☘️🍀
Although I snipped from Cultivating Love last week, this is from a completely different scene. For context, Ed and Joe’s life has recently been uprooted, and they are planning to move across the state to a small town. It’s crazy early in the morning, and Joe has just left to go take care of the farm Ed inherited, leaving Ed behind to pack up their home, etc.
From Ed’s 3rd-person POV:
Blurb & Links
A man of few words, Joe is a hard-working farmhand who likes his simple, uncomplicated life. Ed is satisfied with his existence as an auto mechanic, but thrilled when an unexpected development in his life allows him to help Joe realize a dream.
It forces them, however, to reevaluate the casual, undefined nature of their relationship. They’re too macho to speak of love, and neither would acknowledge he doesn’t really mind when it’s his turn to bottom. When life throws them a curve ball, and the rules of their game get old, Ed tries to take every aspect of their relationship up a notch. Can Joe adapt to the open sentimentality Ed’s injecting into their relationship, let alone the new spice in their bedroom activities?
This is a previously published story that has been rewritten, expanded, and re-edited.
