Rainbow Snippets February 9th, 2020

Happy Sunday! The weather is blah, all rainy and cold. I wish it were snow! Oh well…I still hope for a few more storms during this winter.

Right now I await my brother to come over and help me eat a huge lasagna that I’m currently baking up. It’s one of about five dishes I actually know how to make and don’t need a recipe. 🙂

In case you missed the big news…I made it! I’ll be an author at this year’s GRL. I’m excited and nervous and have no idea what to bring yet…suggestions on books or swag?

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.

This week I’m sticking with one of my older works again which was formerly “Refugees” but was re-named “This Time Around”.

Available on Amazon


Can two lonely souls finally get a second chance on getting it right?

Robert can’t believe this has happened again. His heart is in tatters, all because of his once-again ex. Out of pure frustration, he takes matters into his own hands and gives boxing a try. All he gains is an injured hand, which needs the attention of a physical therapist.

David is overwhelmed and his heart is in denial over the sudden departure of the man he was in love with. As he tries to piece his life back together, a patient needing therapy walks into his clinic and the attraction is immediate; but the desire is not.

Can these two finally find a good relationship that will last and work this time around?

Robert’s attention jumped to his caregiver. “Oh? You’ve dealt with the boyfriend from hell?” He gasped a little. Maybe he said too much, just admitting he was gay right off; but to snap at David wasn’t necessary.

“Whoa, calm down there, buddy.” David replied. “I’ve had my share of hellacious romances. Believe me.”

A little embarrassed, Robert shook his head. “Sorry. I’ve, just got a lot on my mind. I only have so many people I can trust or talk to anymore.”

“Hey, no worries, ok?” David clapped his shoulder. “Everything you tell me is totally confidential.”

That much was true. Maybe Robert could finally unburden himself and get this monkey off his back.

“I really need to talk to somebody. If it’s ok?” Robert pleaded.

“Hey, I’m your captive audience. Get it off your chest.”

After a deep breath, Robert glanced at David. “I guess you know I’m gay now, huh?” he joked.

David grinned. “I guessed that pretty quick after you said ‘boyfriend’.”

“Oh. Right.” Robert blushed and cleared his throat. “I just ended a really bad relationship.”

Now maybe they can talk?


A lover of words and writing since they entered my life as a young child. Now a devout lover of men (especially late teen, college and mature men) to write their stories.
