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.
Taliya has bought a used space ship, had a few (mis)adventures with it, and has gone to look up an old friend from school for help. This picks up from last week’s snippet, in which Taliya filled Josul in on what’s been happening since she bought the ship.
Josul waved that away. “Easily fixed. It’ll take me less than an hour to reset your frequency to one that’s unassigned.”
“And you just happen to have a list of unassigned frequencies?”
“I might,” he replied, grinning. “You’ll need a whole new identity for the ship, though, and that will take a little longer – we’ll have to register it under its new name and identity signal, and rename your company. What is your company name, anyhow?”
“Cygnet Shipping? Cute, Swann, real cute.”
Taliya shrugged, grinning. “It was that or Ugly Duckling Enterprises, and that just didn’t quite convey the image that I had in mind.”
