Rainbow Snippets – 3/3

Hello again all!

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 is the first six (it’s seven, pretend it’s six) lines from a current WIP I’m working on with BA Tortuga, tentatively titled Wrecked. I’m not going to tell you too much about it, but Beckett Adler is an attorney living in Vermont and working in Middlebury.


The offices of Walker and Adler, LLP closed early on Fridays. That was one of the perks of practicing law in Vermont, weekends were sacred. There were other perks–it was perfectly acceptable to show up late because there was fresh powder on the mountain, you could bring your dog to the office, and you only had to wear a suit on court days.

Of course, the rules, such as they were, didn’t concern Beckett Adler too much since he was the boss.

Beckett locked up and stepped out into the brisk afternoon, but the chill in the air didn’t keep him from stopping by the hardware store for varnish and a couple of foam brushes. In a month or so he’d get his boat back to Lake Champlain. His weekend plans included refinishing the tiller and the cleats, and maybe starting on the companionway.


Have a great weekend!
