Rainbow Snippets 10/7

I’ve added close to 6K to my M/M/M WiP this week, so my snippet is from that one again, Tentatively titled Love for Love.

For those of you that don’t know, Rainbow Snippets says it “is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of original fiction. Every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+.”

This snip is from the first time Oscar (the MC that owns the farm), and Russ, the farm manager with an as-yet-unrequited thing for Oscar, meet the realtor, Jeffrey Stokes.

~~~~~~~~~

Stokes parked his shiny car alongside Oscar’s incredibly not-sexy, seven-year-old minivan, and not far from Russ’s old dusty, rusty, red pickup. As it turned out, the car was second only to the man who got out of it. Jeffrey Stokes was shiny himself; tall, dark-haired, and embarrassingly well dressed. Russ whistled softly and Oscar chuckled.

“Yep,” Oscar said quietly, just for Russ’s ears, and then louder, “Hey there, Mr. Stokes.”

Deviations — In the Works!

submission

MANY OF YOU KNOW that Chris Owen and I recently requested the return of our rights from Torquere Press for non-payment and breach of contract.  I am happy to report that, as of this writing, Chris and I are now working on republishing the Deviations Series.  I’ve  started the conversation on Twitter –  please drop by and join in!

As I reread the books, as I’m being pulled back into Tobias & Noah’s universe, I’m reminded of the love and respect that I have for these characters.  Oh, yes, they’re hot.  But they’re truthful, they’re caring, and they’re sincere in their needs.  Tobias knows the weight of his responsibilities as Dom – he knows what he holds in hands (literally and figuratively).  Noah is well aware of the power inherent in his submission.  Chris and I set out to create characters that wanted more than kink – characters that wanted (needed?) to live the lifestyle 24/7.  Not one-night games, not weekend “second lives”, not a fantasy.  Real life — real limitations, real struggles, real issues.  Perfect and imperfect.  Constantly learning, evolving, never fully satisfied.

And I love that the people they have around them — Bradford and Phan for example — are more than just secondary characters – they have full lives of their own.

I can’t wait to see these books available again, to have these conversations and hear your thoughts.  More information as soon as we have it!
