Rainbow Snippets has rolled around again. It’s April 1st. Did anyone get pranked or fooled today?
April 1st also heralds the beginning of Camp NaNoWriMo. I am using the this month to catch up and take over my May to December romance involving Jules, the head teacher, and Tristan, his newest member of staff. I have already shared some snippets over the last few weeks.
The story is told from Jules’s point of view.
If I thought he was looking pale and wan and vulnerable before, it was nothing to the utter despair and loneliness I saw flash across his face. I mean, I wanted to hug him earlier, but now, I just want to scoop him up, wrap him in a blanket and keep the cruel world at bay—with my fists if I have to. The feeling is so strong, I’m overwhelmed. I’ve never wanted to fight anyone before in my life, but I’d fight them for him, and that thought is frightening as hell, because I’ve only just met him—properly.
Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!). To find out what snippets everyone is sharing this week click here.
Good luck to everyone doing Camp NaNo. I hope you all reach your word counts. I’m off to try and reach my daily goal. Anyone interested in finding out about Camp NaNoWriMo, click here.
