Rainbow Snippets July 6th

Happy 4th of July weekend! After hearing tooo many illegal fireworks in my own neighborhood, I’m ready for silence. Otherwise, work keeps me busy, and kitty too. Hobbies and errands are on the order of business; plus getting ready for a new release! I’ll tease only so much; we need the blurb cleaned up before I can post..which leaves me in a quandry.

What to post this week? Bernard’s Diary is out, and with the new one not quite ready, I’ll post from Cid. It’s a year ago (almost) when Cid hit the scene.

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:

Ask 26-year-old artist Cid Walker how he’s feeling and you’ll likely get a snarl, or a glare, but not a real answer. Cid’s soul is so damaged from a brutal and savage ex-fiancé that trusting anyone is out of the question.
Two classmates try to get his attention; Barry and Kellen. Barry is only 18 and a very naïve, sweet boy-next-door type who is young, needy, and anxious to get involved with the mysterious artist. He wants to be with Cid more than anything, but his efforts fail.
Kellen, all of 22, is as snarky as Cid is at first, but soon manages to get across to him. Kellen understands why Cid is acting out because Kellen is also keeping his soul and psyche intact with mere Band-Aids after being attacked a few years ago.
Add in a stalker that won’t take ‘no’ for an answer and you have Cid’s life at the moment. Who can get through his broken heart?

We pick up at the start of Ch 4..Barry’s POV

If you don’t recall the tale, the snippets begin in July of 2018. Here is the 1st one:

Cid

It was a stale morning, and the droning professor was not exactly keeping Barry’s interest today. His attention and focus were on the smoking hot lilac-haired hottie next to him. Cid. That’s all he even knew, except that it was a first name, not a last. Shit, he barely knew anything about this guy and yet he was pervading all of his thoughts.

Why?

Why did some crazy art major who dressed like he was in a bad 80’s movie capture his attention?

Barry had knocked the ideas around in his head all night and he had to wonder just what the attraction was beyond physical.

Promises to myself

Hello all! I hope this weekend is starting off great for you. If not I hope it will 🙂

In the spirit of the ending 2018, I am making my list of tasks, dreams and goals. I’m calling them promises to myself.

Wow do I need goals. This year wasn’t the best by a long shot. Chronic pain, horrible job, and anxiety through the roof. On the flip side, however, I released Cid, Ice Fairy 3, Upstaged 3, and This Time Around. Plus restarted this blog and have gone from 12 to nearly 90 followers since July.

So…my list of promises include:

limit TV time (under an hour)

knit daily (if no hand pain)

paint daily (if no hand pain)

finish two rewrites

finish two new books

by year end have marketing outsourced

savor my family moments

eat better

Thats a partial list for me. How about you?

What are your promises to yourself?
