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

We floundered. We tried not to show it. We tried not to vomit all over his pretty black boots. We tried many things – pockets, hat, mumbles about pickpockets and untrustworthy cab drivers… all we succeeded in doing however was convincing the walrus that we was precisely the puddin’ bowl  he’d pegged us for – the bleedin’ Rake Of The Hesperus.

« You better come wiv me. »

His meat is on our collar and we’re marching two-time round the back of the inn expecting a black-tie-reception or somethin’…

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 🙂

  1. Yikes! Gotta agree that vomiting on the pretty black boots would be a bad thing. 😁

      lol, I always feel sick when I get nervous – it’s never a good idea to go vomiting over folk though!
