Saturday Snippet

Welcome to #https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowSnippets! Six sentences of GLBT fiction are posted and shared. It can be your own. It can someone else’s. It just needs to be GLBT fiction.

Here a sample from my Nutcracker inspired Christmas story, ‘Seven Tricks’, which was just submitted to Dreamspinner Press…

Some say a mouse king has seven heads with seven crowns. In a way, this is true. A mouse prince must play seven tricks before the twelve days of Christmas are over. If he doesn’t, he cannot claim his throne.

“You must prove your worth, before I acknowledge you as my heir,” Madam Mousenip said to me in the shadow of the enormous, ticking tower, which shielded our main hole. “Only by succeeding at seven tricks will you possess what you desire.” She herself had become our sovereign through seven capers of her own, earning the name Mousenip for delivering tiny bites, which left cheese looking unscathed and humans hideously deformed.
