Rainbow Snippet for 3-12-2016

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, bloggers, and readers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).   Check out all the other awesome snippets by clicking on the picture above.

More from Disturbed Magic, an unfinished novel that I’m beginning to think I should finish and edit and turn loose on the world.  Picking up a little after last week – Kel is spending the night in Tirza’s room at the inn.




“Why do you hide what you are?”

For the second time that evening a surge of panic threatened to engulf the warrior.  “What do you mean?”  

“About being a Sword Dancer.”

“I told you,” Kel replied.  “I’m not a Sword Dancer.  They don’t exist anymore. And if they did and if I was, I would prefer to remain alive, not be put into a pit to fight until I died.”

  2. Can’t say that I blame Kel for taking that position!

  3. Very good reason to keep quiet. But how does Tirza know what Kel is?

  4. For sure you should get cracking. I want to read all of this story

    Yet, being put in a pit and fighting sounds so tough and sexy…

  10. Yeah, I’m thinking that’s a pretty good reason to hide!
