#RainbowSnippets: My Tool, My Treasure

Welcome to Rainbow Snippets!

Every Saturday, those participating post and share six sentences of LGBTQIA+ fiction on their blogs. It can be their own. It can be someone else’s. It just has to be LGBTQIA+.

For my own, I’m going to share a little more of my NaNoWriMo project, a rough draft of the fourth novel of Tales of the Navel: The Shadow Forest.

    1. Thank you! Leiwell, Dyvian, and Tales of the Navel: The Shadow Forest along with the whole Tarot inspired setting are forcing to take complicated to a whole new level of being, but it’s some of the most rewarding writing I’ve ever done.
