Rainbow Snippets 9/30

I had a new book release this week, and I’ve been so focused on that – posting, promo, blog tour, etc. – that I am so ready to post about something else!

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+.” 

I’m giving you six sentences from my first ever M/M/M WIP. In this snip, Oscar, whose once-stable home life has been an emotional ride for the last handful of years, is finally making himself deal with his late father’s property.


He’d read over the business card so many times in the last month that he didn’t really need it anymore; he had the damn number memorized.

There was no good reason not to make the call, he’d been procrastinating for weeks already. He’d asked himself why a hundred times and the only thing he could come up with was that maybe he wasn’t ready to close the book on his father’s life. But ready or not, the fact was that the old farm was costing him money every month it sat empty, and he had mouths to feed.

He took a deep breath, picked up his phone and dialed.

“Jeffrey Stokes Realty. This is Janie, can I help you?”
