#RainbowSnippets: Jack and Marjory
Happy Saturday! Here’s my #RainbowSnippets post for this week – if you’re new to this, Rainbow Snippets is a chance to read and share 6 sentences of LGBTQIA+ fiction every Saturday. There’s a huge variety from Steampunk, like mine, to Romance, Fantasy, Paranormal, Comedy and everything in between. You can join the fun and read all the other fabulous snippets at the wonderfully friendly and supportive official facebook group here 🙂
So, here is the next snippet from Jack and Marjory – my novella-in-progress which gives two of my Bi-Gendered characters a chance to tell something of their own little side-adventure, which actually had a massive impact on the history of Ire in a ‘behind-the-scenes’ kind of way.
If you missed last week’s snippet you can catch up here: #RainbowSnippets: Jack and Marjory

Jacl and Marjory are trying to remain inconspicuous as they traverse the Lancashire countryside to rescue the smuggled teaset for the leader of the revolution…
At Cracoe we stopped for a quiet ale in the Devonshire Coach House and sat outside in the late afternoon sunshine enjoying our snap. We know what you’re thinking, you wouldn’t have been so daft wouldcha? No, you’d have kept a low profile like you was told. But, well, we already told you was green about it all back then and, besides, we’ve never been that good at doing what we’re told, that’s just the way it is.
Cracoe turned out to be quite a pleasant, sleepy little town. For a shilling, any rosy faced cider swigger will tell you a little history of the place – and if you’re good you can then win it back off him in a game of hunt the rabbit and he’ll not bear you a grudge. At least not until you’re well on your way home.
being an entertaining and informative piece of travel writing by a couple of rogues on the run as they attempt to avoid the machinations of wizards, monarchs and a ruthless band of beatnik poets, deflect a civil war and deliver a priceless, historical tea set before the owner finds himself at the gallows.
Wishing you all a most splendiferous week and don’t forget to check in at the #rainbowsnippets facebook group for more fabulous snippets of LGBTQIA+ fiction 🙂
