RAINBOW SNIPPETS – 2019-Aug-8 – Weekend at Bigfoot’s – #RainbowSnippets

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 Weekend at Bigfoot’s (see blurb, below the snippet), a 28,489-word novella. It’s scheduled for release on Saturday, October 19 at JMS Books both as an individual standalone and as part of a “Legendary Loves Trio” together with stories by Nell Iris and Kassandra Lea.

I think of Weekend at Bigfoot’s as a comedic paranormal romance with a flavor of mystery added. It’s technically paranormal, but doesn’t follow the usual formula of shifter story rules. There’s no fated love (although the MCs do experience a bit of insta-attraction), no MPREG, and no “packs” with alphas/betas/omegas/whatever.

This is the opening scene, so no context needed if you start this thread from the beginning.

The story is unedited at this point, so please squint as needed.

This scene is told from Wilson’s 3rd-person POV. In fact, the whole story is from Wilson’s POV because it would trash the “mystery” otherwise:

This week’s snippet:

Weekend at Bigfoot's - 2019-August-10

Maybe Wilson Banks should have twigged to the lifechanging aspect of his new assignment when Jerry first mentioned it to him. Life view changing, anyway.

No, it was ultimately lifechanging. Or both.

Regardless, he’d never considered things like extra-sensory perception to be true any more than he’d believed in the reality of many of the articles he wrote. This assignment was an annoyance to be ducked in favor of something…anything that wasn’t such typical tabloid fodder.


Blurb & Links

Sensational News’ (Never Fake! We Swear!) reporter Wilson Banks enjoys his job. Of course, he doesn’t believe the majority of what he reports, but he has standards. He can prevaricate with ease while avoiding outright falsehoods. After all, reporting that “so-and-so claimed to see this” is absolutely true.

Then he meets and falls for perky Tallbear, CA resident Oliver Hughes. While pursuing soundbites for a story about Bigfoot, Wilson witnesses something he wasn’t meant to see. In Wilson’s new reality, is there room for love with someone whose dreams are as big as his…er…feet?

Coming to JMS Books on Saturday, October 19, 2019!

Cover and links pending.

    1. Thank you! I love JMS’s new “trio” concept in general. “Legendary Loves” jumped out at me as one I could have some fun with. 💞😁
