Rainbow Snippets: Poor design…

Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation.

I’m in the middle of the final edits for To Poison a Prince. I’m also tinkering with a prequel novella to In Pain and Blood, but I’ll still be posting bits of Hamish and Darshan’s story for a little while longer…


For those of you who are new or catching up… Darshan and Hamish are a pair of thirty-something princes from two vastly different lands. Their tale starts with them travelling through the ginormous Udynea Empire that Darshan is from on their way to the capital. This snippet follows last week’s, where they’ve reached the estate of Darshan’s half-sister…

“Why a tree?” The sparkle of colour drew Hamish’s gaze upward to where several large gemstones of green and red glittered in the candlelight. Was it meant to be someone’s attempt at leaves and fruit? They hadn’t done anywhere near as good a job there as with the tree.

His husband exhaled in a long, blustery sigh. “My bet would be on Onella mimicking the entrance to the imperial palace’s throne room. Poorly, I may add.” He flapped his hand, dismissing the sight. Darshan hadn’t remained still since entering Nulshar. When his hands weren’t fluttering in some dramatic gesture as he talked, he would stroke his tiny beard. The once stylised wings of his waxed moustache had long gone, the tips merging with a small circle-shaped beard that only encompassed his mouth and chin. “This design was clearly done by someone who has never set foot in Minamist, never mind the palace grounds. I would be ashamed to have this adorning my doors.”

And there you have it. I’ll be back next weekend to share more of these two adorkable twits. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
