Rainbow Snippets – January 28th 2017

For the third time in 2017, it’s time for me to post a snippet of an up and coming work on Rainbow Snippets. For those of you who don’t know, Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group where you share a set of sentences from a work that has LGBT related content. If you want to check out this great community for yourselves, be sure to check them out for yourself.

This segment is from A Treasured Find series, and was co-written by AuldMisdione, the deviantArt user who helped me bring the characters of the story to life. For this Rainbow Snippet, I decided to offer you a sample from the backstory of Varron’s parents.


As Magnus entered the tent, a wonderful scent reached his nostrils, and his instincts screamed to him that he had at long last be discovering the identity of his mate. The young adult shifter entered the main body of the tent, and came face to face with Ceispen Sevarine for the very first time.

The handsome blonde genie prince had instantly sensed the connection between them, and the Grand Magister did nothing but watch the two men as their connection came into life. At the time, Magnus learned that the Grand Magister had summoned Ceispen from inside an old copper lamp he had discovered in the mines, and intended to give Magnus one of his three wishes as a gift before he could take the throne.

Sensing the connection that was brewing, the Grand Magister congratulated Magnus on finding the man he was meant to be together with. However, there was still the issue of who would lead the pride.

Ceispen explained to Magnus that he was in line for his own throne in the Northern Kingdom, and that he was merely performing his mandatory community service of three hundred wishes to complete his training to become a crown sovereign. As soon as he had granted the last of the wishes, he would no longer be the Genie of the Lamp, and then they could be together as fate intended.

For the next week, the two men spent several hours together, to build the bond that could endure the years that they would be apart. Very few people in the pride would have considered their union to anything particular, as their religion did not bar two men or women from joining together in matrimony, but Magnus and Ceispen kept their bond a secret from all but their closest family.


On a side note, I would like to thank every member of the group who has offered me kind words so far. Your support and friendship mean the world to me. I hope you enjoyed everyone enjoyed this little snippet, and are looking forward to another brief glimpse as well as the final release.

Rainbow Snippets – January 14th 2017

For the second time in 2017, it’s time for me to post a snippet of an up and coming work on Rainbow Snippets. For those of you who don’t know, Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group where you share a set of sentences from a work that has LGBT related content.

This segment is from A Treasured Find series, and was co-written by AuldMisdione, the deviantArt user who helped me bring the characters of the story to life. Before we get to the sample, I thought I would share another picture that was created of Caleb and Varron, the two main characters in the series. You can find it below, or visit the original deviantArt page where it was uploaded.

For this Rainbow Snippet, we join our protagonists during a scene where Caleb and Varron are walking through the palace to get some breakfast.


As the two men walked through the corridors of the palace, Caleb was astounded at the beauty of Varron’s home. Although the majority of the architecture was typical of a Middle Eastern setting, there were several things, such as the medieval tapestries and Victorian chandeliers that were hung on several of the walls and ceilings. It was as if the entire creative history of the human race was being celebrated all at once.

On several occasions, Varron explained the layout of the palace, particularly when they passed a doorway which was slightly ajar. The many servants and nobles that wandered in their direction offered their well wishes at their prince, and he inclined his head in response to many, whilst making small conversation with those he knew on a personal level.

Eventually, they came to a set of double doors that had golden brass handles attached. The borders were made of solid silver, whilst the main body of the door was a deep blood red that seemed to gleam in the candlelight. Caleb wondered if it would considered proper to knock before entering the presence of Varron’s parents.

The genie prince chuckled, and placed a comforting hand on his Hiraeth’s shoulder.

“You don’t need to be so formal when entering the dining room sweetheart. Just place your hands around the handle and pull. “

Feeling more at ease with the man’s words, Caleb reached forward to grab the silver object, and pulled with all of his might. Slowly but surely, the door opened wide to reveal a dining room that looked like it belonged in a fairy tale castle, rather than a palace.

The main table could easily have seated twenty, and each of the place settings were furnished with the finest silverware. Away from the long piece of furniture, there was a smaller round table that could fit six people. It wasn’t surprising that the bowls and plates on the larger table were made of gold, and that several gemstones adorned on the handles of the cutlery. This must have been where the rulers of the Northern Kingdom, as well as their inner circle, had their nourishment every day.

The door closed with a gentle thump behind Varron and his mate, drawing the attention of the man who was sat alone at the relative top of the table. He gave a wide smile, and then got to his feet.

“Greeting my son, I am pleased to see that your Hiraeth is up and about.”

For this Rainbow Snippet, we join our protagonists during a scene where Caleb is lying on a hospital bed, and Varron is sat by his bedside.


Caleb awoke some time later to the gentle sounds of a carriage clock chiming somewhere in the room. For a moment, he felt a rush of panic as he imagined that he was back in the room he shared with Michael. But to his relief, it was then that he saw the familiar face of his loving genie.

Varron was sitting on the chair next to his bed, and Caleb could tell he was watching the room intently for any sign of danger. The witch wasn’t surprised, as his involuntary passing out would probably have given the genie more reasons to worry for his safety. The instant that he saw his mate was awake; the prince leant forward and kissed Caleb on the forehead.

“Good morning to you too handsome,” Caleb said, offering a kiss on the genie’s chin in exchange. Varron smiled, and sat back down so he could give his Hiraeth some personal space.

“How are you feeling sweetheart?”

Caleb considered the question. Although he was still a little shaken from the magical feedback, his body felt more rested than it had felt in a very long time. People gave comas a bad rep, but they did wonders for giving the body a well deserved rest.

Caleb felt his hand being massaged, which broke him out of his self contemplation.

“I would be lying if I said I could take on the world, but I do feel more like my old self.”

With those few words, Varron looked instantly less concerned.
