Welcome to Rainbow Snippets!

Every Saturday, six sentences of LGBTQ+ fiction is posted and shared. It can be yours. It can be someone else’s. It just needs to be LGBTQ+.

Mine is from Unwilling to Be Yours, the second prelude I’m posting online to my novel, Stealing Myself From Shadows. (currently under revision).

It’s the first book in an ambient fantasy series I’m writing inspired by Tarot card imagery known as Tales of the Navel/The Shadow Forest.

I’ve got drafts on Book 2 (The Hand and the Eye of the Tower) and Book 3 (A Godling for Your Thoughts?) which I’m also working on.

Unwilling to Be Yours picks up right where it left off on Wednesday (QueerBlogWed).

‘Brie had just tried to pit her will against ‘Waiting for Rebirth’, the painting which swallowed Damian in the previous prelude. Alas, its hold on him is too strong.

Peter is still trying to figure out what’s going on. πŸ™‚


I had no right to interrupt such an intimate moment, even if I was there. Alas, my mouth has a will of its own.

β€œWhat wish?” I asked before I could think better of it. β€œHow could a painting steal Damian away?”

There was a moment of utter silence.
