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.

“One sheet,” Wellhym said, staring at the cupboardful of paper and shaking his head. “I’d say that Cair hasn’t changed since we were the age of this lot but I think he’s gotten worse.”
Kordelm laughed and handed him a sheet of paper as Wellhym sat down at the desk.
