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.
This month, the snippets will be from my current work-in-progress, Tracking Trouble. It’s a prequel to In Pain and Blood starring Tracker, a King’s Hound from Demarn, who is also the elf responsible for the massive rewriting haul that has become the Spellster and the Hound series. Unlike a lot of my other stories, this isn’t a romance.
We’ll start off at the very beginning…
Tracker hated hunting in the rain. Never mind that it dulled his senses or left him soaked from head to toe. The shivering trickle of water along his ears was the most aggravating. Each droplet that ran off his earrings left him wishing he’d as much sense there as a human.
A cloak would see him dry and warm, more or less. He had one, although it currently sat balled up in his rented inn room. He refused to gift his prey any chance to set his clothes on fire, especially when this one was cunning enough to have already taken out a fellow King’s Hound.
He hadn’t seen a body, of course. No one had. But Chaser had set off on his task days ago. When it came to hunting down rogue spellsters, lack of contact with a hound for so long meant one thing only.
Chaser was dead.
Tracker will be back next weekend to share more. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
