RAINBOW SNIPPETS – Change of Plans – May 8-9

Have you discovered the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook yet? I’ve recently become active there again in hopes that it’ll motivate me to stay active working on this WiP!

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 continuing to snip from Change of Plans, a novella-in-progress following The Contingency Plan and The Best-Laid Plans.

For context, Efren has awoken to discover an unknown man in his bed.

EDIT May 10, 2021 – I’ve updated the snippets (including those behind the spoiler tags) to reflect changes made to the manuscript to date.

Click the spoiler tag(s), below for a quick review of preceding snippets in this thread:

This Week’s Snippet:

Change of Plans - Chapter 1 - Snippet 8

The door swung open, and Dru and another servant whom Efren didn’t recognize entered bearing trays.

“Erich! Thank goodness!” The young man expelled a breath that also deflated some of the terror that had stiffened his slight frame.

“Sir?” Erich sedately placed his tray on a small table, and his brows raised in a manner that conveyed a calming, “How may I be of service,” rather than a reflection of the young man’s panic.

“Yes, thank goodness.” Efren rolled his eyes and turned to Dru. “I appreciate the effort, Dru, but next time, please find a bed-warmer who isn’t so deep in his cups he won’t remember how he came to be here.”


I still don’t have a blurb, but here’s a limerick 😁:

There once was a handsome young prince,
whose naïveté made himself wince.
He was a huge fan
of “The Contingency Plan,”
till a drug turned his memory to mince.

…and a haiku 😄:

They fell in love once.
But can they do it again?
Forget-Me-Not, dear.

I’m working on the blurb and will hopefully have it ready to post with next week’s snippet. The story is complete and in the beta-reading phase. It’s currently sitting at 31,590 words.


In case you missed the beginning of Marcelo and Efren’s relationship—or perhaps I should say their first time around—here are some handy links (because although I always try to write sequels so random readers won’t be completely lost, this series will be best appreciated if all the stories are read in order):

The Contingency Plan

A sheltered prince.
A sudden death.
An unexpected choice.
How will Prince Marcelo react
to discovering he’s…
The Contingency Plan?

A death that wasn’t
what it seemed.
A kidnapping that isn’t
what it seems.
Time is running out.
