Kick starting my blog with a bang! Joined the fabulous Rainbow Snippets group on facebook and thought what a wonderful way to get going with this blog malarkey than to give you a snippet from my first novel.
Misdemeanor, first book in the Responsible Adult series, to be published by Pride Publishing on 23 May 2017.
Blurb, for reference:
After his mother tragically dies and his deadbeat father goes off the rails, nineteen-year-old Micky is left to care for his disabled little brother, Flynn.
Juggling college, a dead end job and Flynn’s special needs means Micky has to put his bad boy past behind him and be the responsible adult to keep his brother out of care. He doesn’t have time for anything else in his life.
Until he meets Dan.
Six lines, right? Think I got it 😉
There was a brief pause, where only the ticking of the wall clock tapped around the otherwise hushed staff dining room and Dan searched for a better response than a two-letter one.
“Fuck me,” he finally breathed out. Well, he was just full of the unprofessionalism today.
Micky narrowed his eyes. Possibly wondering if Dan’s latest, at least two-syllable remark, warranted another laugh, a return of the putrid brown overalls or, perhaps, a genuine request? As if letting him decide, Micky waited quietly.
And just because… I’m going to be adding little character bios leading up the the book release. Let you all meet the gang.
First up – Micky.
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!).
In this group you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.
