#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

The river towards the outskirts was full of barges, a permanent fixture by the look of them and, as we had time to kill, we stopped to chew the fat , and a couple of pork sausages, with a gang of girls who was frying over a metal drum.
It was getting on for nine when we said ‘fair well’ and began our hour long trek across country to Cottingham.
We are not, we realised swiftly, of that indomitable and resourceful breed who can navigate by stars and a dampened finger to the wind. We very near mullered ourselves in the steam powered water works on the outskirts. For certain sure – they have that.
But Hallgate Cottingham after Beverley was like a comfy chesterfield after a night on theatre velvets and we were more than ready for the bed we’d been promised.
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 🙂
