Who else has a tough time believing it’s the end of August? As I was working Friday I kept doing the mid-August files…and had to remind myself no, this is month-end! Crazy.
The kittens are all checked out and good. They are swatting and hissing amongst themselves now and we are just letting them fight it out (to an extent). Policing is exhausting and these are siblings…they just need to be reminded.
As for the story, let’s continue with this first memorable interaction of Erik and Asher.
Here’s my snippet for the week:
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.
I”m changing gears completely and going to a beloved co-authored work and a series of Upstaged. Written by myself and Cheryl Headford (Nephy to some) in 2012! Over the course of two years we wrote 12 books together! It was the most insane, wonderful time of my writing life! We hope you love the result. The first four books are published and up for sale at Extasy Press and on Amazon. Here is book #1. Upstaged: Opening Act
Wannabe singer and band front man Erik Von Nordgren hates snarky brit Asher Berkley with a passion. From the moment he turns up at practice with his twin sister Daisy, who is one of the band the two have hated each other.
Through a series of ‘tit for tat’ incidents they annoy, frustrate and exasperated each other. The die hard goth with purple eyes and the hard core rocker with dreams of the big time have nothing in common and no need to cross paths. Except to wind each other up.
Until the day that Erik throws Asher in the school pool, when everything begins to change. Erik is so far in closet he’s in Narnia and Asher has a dark past and trust issues that stand in the way of any relationship, let alone one with the brash American who hurts him every time they try to get together.
A relationship doomed from the start, or so you’d think.

Erik touched her arm. “What is it, Daisy?” She pointed to the pale kid and made a fist at him. “It’s my brother. He’s playing with your toys.”
She gave Asher a look like no other, one he hoped never to see aimed at him for any reason. But his ire was up. He stared the irritating teen down. Asher met his gaze and once again pressed the button on the angle grinder he held. It let out that same, high-pitched whine as he pushed it against the wall of the garage.
“Dude! What the fuck is wrong with you? Get your paws off my dad’s stuff!” He leapt off the stage and barreled through the crowd, knocking people out of the way to get to the crazy Brit. As soon as he could, he ripped the plug out of the wall, and the machine ground to a halt.
“You fuck! Making a noise like that while I’m singing? That’s just so fucked up, man.And for fuck’s sake, you’ve damaged the wall! Course, you snobby Brits think you’re just too damn good to sit here and listen to us angsty Americans, aren’t ya.” He glanced over his shoulder. “Sorry, Daisy, I didn’t mean you.” Shaking his head, he growled. “What the hell are you even doin’ here?”
