Rainbow Snippets: Footsteps…

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.

And the World Crumbled is my current work in progress. It’s a dark fantasy/horror novella set a few days before the end of In Pain and Blood and follows Henrie, an elven spellster, as he tries to escape the events happening around him.

It’s the darkest piece I’ve written to date. Lots of death, blood and general nastiness. If gore and depictions of death/dying bother you, don’t read on.

Continuing on from last week…

Footsteps echoed from the way he had come, faint compared to the rest of the sounds echoing down the hall, but strong and purposeful.

Henrie dove through the door, slowly closing it behind him until the latch gave a barely audible click. He took in the room, searching for a place to hide. The options were few. Five solid tables with chairs left abandoned around them, some merely askew, the rest knocked onto their backs. A row of cupboards lined the far wall, too obvious to hide in and too heavy to squeeze behind.

And the World Crumbled will continue next week. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
