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.
To Poison a Prince releases at the end of the month. I’ve put the prequel novella to In Pain and Blood on the back burner until I’ve sorted out everything for the release. I’ll be posting bits of Hamish and Darshan’s story for at least until then…
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 skips slightly from last week’s…
The door swung inwards as they neared, bisecting the image of the tree and allowing golden light to spill into the foyer. Darshan strode through the doorway with barely a pause, leaving Hamish to follow.
The whole room shone with a golden light. Hamish halted beside his husband at the top of the stairs, blinking to see anything beyond the glow. He caught flashes of colour when he squinted, but little else.
An elven man also shared the landing, there to announce attendees as they entered. He bowed, his tanned face gaining a sickly shade. “His imperial highness,” he announced to the crowd, his booming voice neatly cutting the chatter below. “Darshan vris Mhanek, and…” With his face gaining colour at double the speed he had lost it, the man’s eyes darted from Darshan to Hamish. The elf wet his lips, clearly torn between assuming and enquiring. “His husband…?” The tight note of a question lingered in that last word.
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.
