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, we’re continuing the snippets from 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.
I’m also having a little celebration of the story reaching 100 pre-orders by giving away a US$10 Amazon voucher. Check out this Facebook post to see how to enter.
This week’s snippet continues from last week’s with Tracker having found the rogue spellster he is hunting…
“I’m not going back there,” the spellster snarled. “You can’t expect me to roll over and accept that prison.” He all but spat the final word.
The man had come from the spellster tower? That might’ve explained how he had outwitted Chaser. They taught those within the tower about the King’s Hounds, even if it was in the most ridiculous manner, using tales of them as a parent might about sprites and ghosts.
“I promise, my dear spellster.” Tracker fingered his dagger hilt. “You need not fear such an outcome.” Anyone who had managed to escape the tower was far too dangerous to let return.
Tracker will be back next week, and sticking around for a while after. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
