Happy Sunday! The first breath of autumn has been stifled by heat 😦 Dangit. Bring on the bonfire weather!My allergies and sinuses are not happy campers at all with the shifts in temperature.
Otherwise, life is good as I pursue a new hobby, and catch up on old and new shows alike as I knit or plan out my gaming. Even a new story (hint hint).
This week I’m changing things up and posting from one of my first books “Love by the Numbers’. This has had a few covers, but the latest is below. The story is the same…about Scott the nerd and Jared the jock and how they find love while battling high school, hormones, and parental issues.
What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.
Blurb: Jared Adams is the smokin’ hot darling of the school baseball team. Girls fawn all over him and the world is at his feet.
Except he can’t do math.
Enter Scott Williams: nerd and mathlete. He’s only supposed to help Jared with math, but the help – and friendship – go further than that.
Fate made them friends, but is friendship all they have?
Jared began tapping his foot in time with the pencil.
This irritated Mrs. O’Reilly to no end. She was a wafer-thin, blue-suited, tightly bunned, spectacled woman, well known for being one of the toughest disciplinarians in school. Scott speculated, along with other classmates: if The Warden wound her black hair any tighter, could it make her dull green eyes pop out?
As the clock ticked away, Jared showed his growing displeasure. He sighed audibly, rolled his eyes, and slumped deep into his chair. A few classmates grinned, including Scott. At the start of the semester two months ago, Scott had seen Jared’s picture in the trophy case along the main hallway. He’d been instantly smitten with the school celebrity. Now, seeing him in person and getting to be his classmate piqued his curiosity.
