Rainbow Snippets November 17th

Happy early morning on a Sunday! Last week at this time the weather was nearly 70, the next day we had 2″ of snow. Welcome to the Midwest roller coaster!

Today I have been on productivity mode. Kitty and hubby are otherwise occupied so now’s mommy’s time.

This week I’m sticking with one of my first creations, “Love by the Numbers’. Originally printed in 2009, 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?

If improvement isn’t seen very soon, you cannot be on the team next spring.”

At the sound of Jared’s groan, Scott looked up briefly. He noted the eye roll, and he saw the other teen run his hands through his curly hair in frustration. The teacher noticed as well and looked extremely satisfied.

Jared shifted his feet, before finally meeting the teacher’s eye.

“Fine. Whatever. Just who would this tutor be anyway?” he asked in an exasperated tone.

The teacher grinned and looked over at the class assistant. “Mr. Williams, would you be willing to tutor this young man? You’re my best pupil.”

Rainbow Snippets November 10th

Happy early morning on a Sunday! The weather has been cold this week, but no precipitation (yet) beyond an early morning frost that makes hubby and I scramble to get cleared off before headed to work.

Today I plan to be a bit more active both indoors and out. Yesterday was a marathon of Dallas and coughing up a lung as I slowly get over a nasty sinus infection. Hubby has been wonderful, as has kitty, in keeping my spirits up and just being by my side when I nap.

“The homework is too hard! No one but the real brains can even pass your tests. Ain’t there another way?”

Mrs. O’Reilly curled her lip and raised her brow. “First of all, the correct word is ‘isn’t,’ Mr. Adamson. English should be another focus of yours, I see.” She looked at Scott out of the corner of her eye and offered a crafty grin. “I think you could benefit greatly by getting a tutor.”

Jared laughed aloud, but he was the only one who found it amusing. His posture stiffened. “A tutor? Me? Come on! How would that look for me to have a freakin’ tutor?”

Mrs. O’Reilly scowled and gritted her teeth. “You’re not the first ’hot jock’ in this school to have a tutor, young man! It’s your only chance, Mr. Adamson. I’ve informed your parents of your difficulty. If improvement isn’t seen very soon, you cannot be on the team next spring.”

Rainbow Snippets November 3rd

Happy Sunday! The weather has been a true roller coaster ride this week! From bright and sunny to dark, cold, chilly nasty rain that feels like icicles pelting you. Egh. Today at least is lovely and sunny out and warm(ish). We are nearly into winter here and I already miss temps in the 60’s and 70’s. All too brief…

A little longer snip today for context as Jared gets a stern warning from his least favorite teacher.

This week I’m sticking with one of my first creations, “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.

When Scott passed by, Jared tried to catch a glimpse of his classmate’s face but Scott’s head was always down, always hidden.

Jared’s attention was diverted when he saw the oversized brilliant red “F” at the top of his test. He growled and rolled his eyes, a move which did not go unnoticed by the teacher.

“Good job, class. Most of you did very well. Those of you who didn’t, I need to speak with after class. Class dismissed. See you tomorrow.” Scott usually lagged behind, giving himself time to gather his things. He watched Jared slowly shuffle over to the teacher, facing her. She shook her bony finger at him.

“Mr. Adamson, you are failing this course. The semester began over two months ago! I suggest you forget next spring’s baseball season and get more serious about your studies.” Jared’s eyes grew wide, but his tone remained irritated. “The homework is too hard! No one but the real brains can even pass your tests. Ain’t there another way?”
