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

What we wasn’t ready for – what we wasn’t expecting in the slightest – what rattled us to the core and fair near sent us For A Burton out of sheer fright – was a tavern full of Her Majesty’s Good Folk.

We never even made it across the threshold.

« Got a room have you, son ? » the big git blocked the door frame with his massive bulk, the ten bowls of porridge a day man-mountain what the propaganda leaflets like to pontificate about, who’s really skimming the cream off the contraband he confiscates and stuffing his jolly red jowls with it.

« As it goes, yes, » we meet his eye, he loves that.

« Where’s your key then, eh ? »

 

JACKANDMARJORYCOVER

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 🙂
