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 my current WiP, When Are You?
It’s a time travel story, and this is the opening scene. The story is unedited, so please squint as needed.
From Leo’s 3rd-person POV:
I don’t have a real blurb yet, but in the meantime…
There once was a family so gay,
who were going on their merry way,
when a portal appeared,
which they thought they had cleared,
but they lost their sweet boy that fine day.
Oscar’s such a dear.
Pity what happened to him.
When are you, sweet child?
I guess you could tack on…
“Will our loving heroes find a way to rescue their sweet boy, or is he doomed to spend the rest of his life with the earliest of the USA’s primitive settlers? Or is there a third alternative?”
…to the end of my *cough* top-notch poetry for a general idea of what the story’s about.
