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 OUT TODAY 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 😉).
Today’s snippet is random and unrelated to previous threads from this story. But if you’d like a quick and easy review of Weekend at Bigfoot’s snippets from earlier weeks you can click the spoiler tags, below.

THIS WEEK’S (RANDOM) SNIPPET:
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!
“The “… something he wasn’t meant to see” from the blurb comes at the end of the book and even though you easily guess what is going to happen, it was fun and funny. I liked the book, an easy, fun trip through the tabloids.”

“How I loved this story. How I laughed. I hadn’t reached the foot of the first page before I was cackling away to myself like a crazy ol’ cat lady on the subway.”
“Addison Albright’s story is funny and her characters, Oliver and Wilson are so fun together. It’s a wonderful story that made me smile throughout.”
“I loved this. It was so much fun. I adored the set up and the ‘Bigfoot’ headlines. The two leads were endearing and really cute together.”
“Wilson and Oliver are so cute and lovely together. Undeniably connected and sweet on each other. And then a surprise… Brilliant story.”
