Rainbow Snippets September 27th, 2020

Again, I missed a week…life is tooo crazy! Our three kittens had their spay/neuter surgeries and I was playing nurse mommy to all of them, plus Jack, who already has enough medical issues for his own nurse. Sigh.

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

Blurb:

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.

“Maybe if you can’t appreciate our music you should get your ass outta here, Dasher. Or is it Ghoulboy?” Erik laughed at his own wit but was disappointed when it didn’t seem to shake this guy one iota.

“Just because my sister wants to hang around with a bunch of losers, doesn’t mean they’re any good, only that she has really bad taste.”

Erik’s temper rose, his blood nearly to the boiling point. “Who the hell are you callin’ a loser, you…you…emo! You gothic, whiny weirdo…freak!” Asher glanced around slowly and then their eyes locked again. “I didn’t hear anyone whine. But I did hear something squeak. Was it you, little mouse? If I closed my eyes I could have imagined I heard a creaky old gate up there on the stage, swinging in the breeze.”

Rainbow Snippets August 30th, 2020

Happy September to everyone! Sorry I missed last week, but Labor Day weekend went much too fast for us. Kitty #1 is having health issues again, so please keep him in your thoughts. Otherwise, work, school, and life have not slowed down, but we do what we can to keep each other sane.

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?”

“You gonna answer me or what, man?”

Asher held the grinder against the wall and made it whine again. It was beginning to make a groove. Asher shrugged, and Erik badly wanted to wipe the smug, insolent smile off his face.

“Maybe if the band was better I wouldn’t be so bored.” A blond brow went up as Erik crossed his arms tightly across his chest and harrumphed. “You sayin’ something about my band? The one your own sister is in?” He gritted his teeth and inched closer. “Maybe if you can’t appreciate our music you should get your ass outta here, Dasher. Or is it Ghoulboy?” Erik laughed at his own wit but was disappointed when it didn’t seem to shake this guy one iota.
