RAINBOW SNIPPETS – 2019-Oct. 5 – 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 29,672-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 by In My Arms Again by Nell Iris and The Murky Depths by 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. It’s got a contemporary feel with a paranormal surprise (Well, Wilson’s surprised. I don’t suppose the reader will be 😉).

Last week, I started a NEW THREAD (The old thread can be read here). For context, MC Wilson (a tabloid reporter) is interviewing Harold Clayton, a man who claims to have seen Bigfoot, tried to trap him, but inadvertently killed an old woman, instead.

Open the spoiler tag for a quick and easy review of last week’s post right on this page.

Told from Wilson’s 3rd-person POV:

Weekend at Bigfoot's - 2019-September-28

“My story’s never changed.” Harold lifted his chin and tightened his jaw. “It was Bigfoot that I saw walk into the rows yonder. I never saw Ida. Not until she was already gone…dead, that is.”

Wilson straightened and peered over the berry field. The rows were angled so he couldn’t see down the length of them. But depending on how dense the bushes were at the time and how many rows back whatever Harold had seen had entered…“Were you able to see Bigfoot at all once he entered the row?”

Harold shook his head. “Not really. Not much, anyway. The occasional glimpse of the top of its head.”

This week’s snippet:

Weekend at Bigfoot's - 2019-October 5

Wilson leaned forward. Harold had referred to Bigfoot as “it,” not “he.” “Were you wearing your glasses when you spotted Bigfoot? Were there any distinguishing characteristics?”

“I was wearing them. And it was a new prescription—only about two months old, anyway. I could see clearly enough.” He shook his head again. Wilson sensed this was going to become a familiar gesture. “No, nothing stood out.”

According to Emma, certain features couldn’t be missed. Not surprising that fifty years later, the con would be perpetrated by someone wearing a completely different costume. Who knew how many Bigfoot costumes were floating around?

Blurb & Links

It wasn’t supposed to be REAL! Bigfoot doesn’t actually exist. Yetis, shifters, creatures of the night…none of those exist. Right? Right?

There’s nothing about perky—some might even say twinkie—Oliver Hughes that would make a skeptic like Sensational News’ (Never Fake! We Swear!) reporter Wilson Banks think otherwise. But while pursuing soundbites for a tabloid 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?

This fun novella has a paranormal twist, a hint of mystery, and a flavorful dollop of romantic comedy. Mix it all together for a satisfying HEA!
