This week’s snippet is our latest visit to the world of Our Second Chance. This time around, we focus on Dustin and Phoenix as their lives are about to change.


“Why did you have to agree to that wish?” he pleaded. “We could have found another way to save my life.”

Phoenix kissed Dustin’s face where the tears had run, and gave him a resigned expression that was hard to decipher.

“Dustin, it doesn’t matter what he wished for. I love you, and that will never change. Agreeing to his conditions was the only way I could keep you safe. Maybe now I will be the hero that you have always believed that I could be.”

Dustin slapped his lover across the face.

“Phoenix, I don’t need you to be a hero! I need you to be here! These last four months have been in agony without you. I don’t know if I can go through the pain of losing you again.”

Rainbow Snippets – September 16th 2017

The fall has almost arrived, and not in the Persona 3 sense. The autumn leaves are about to fall, and here is another sneak peek for you all. 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 week’s snippet is our latest visit to the world of Our Second Chance. This time around,we focus on Dustin as his perception of reality is shattered forever.


Dustin had always prided himself on his steadfast belief that the supernatural was nothing more than superstition. Now, here he was, seeing a grown man believe so readily that the object he held in his hands was a magic lamp? Dustin would have burst out laughing if the situation wasn’t quite so fraught.

As he saw Elliot’s hand brush over the metal surface, he closed his eyes, and silently prayed that the police would arrive before the man lost his mind altogether. Phoenix’s former lover had already proved he was criminally insane, so there was no determining what the man would attempt to do next.

Before Dustin could try to imagine anything, an enormous clap of thunder broke the fear induced silence. Opening his eyes, Dustin saw a sight that made his stomach fall through the floor, and every single belief of how the universe worked was shattered into pieces.

Thick pink smoke was drifting out the spout of the lamp that Elliot held, and as it had risen, it had formed into the figure of a gigantic muscular genie.

Rainbow Snippets – August 12th 2017

It’s time once again to walk the rainbow brick road to the city of romantic fiction. 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 week’s snippet is our latest visit to the world of Our Second Chance. This time around, I have included a picture of the two main characters, Dustin and Phoenix, which I created using a combination of The Sims 4 and Paint.NET.

This Rainbow Snippet focuses on Dustin as he speaks to a detective regarding Phoenix’s sudden disapperance in the middle of the book.


Dustin spun around at being addressed, and found that he was no longer in the door less corridor. He was now in a standard looking interview room, with dull Brown wallpaper and a small desk with two reasonably sturdy looking chairs on either side.

Sat on the one furthest away from him was Detective Sarenshore. Her hair now flowed freely across her wide shoulders, and she was looking at Dustin with a kind but firm expression.

Dustin didn’t need to be asked to sit down, so he slowly walked across the newly formed room and got himself into the most comfortable position he could. It wasn’t easy, as the seats cushion could have done with being replaced around twenty years ago.

“I’m glad that I could offer my assistance Detective.”

She gave a smile of appreciation.

“Before we begin, It is my duty to inform you that this is not a formal questioning. I do however need to clarify some information before we can charge the current suspects with a crime.”

The detective shuffled her papers, took a sip from her coffee and continued.

“I have also been informed during my previous interview with Lord Rafius Sahir that he used a memory clouding spell upon you after the incident took place. We have checked with him, as well as our resident magical neural health specialist, to ensure that the spell has run its course.”

Dustin had almost drifted off whilst the detective was speaking her legalese, but when he realised what she was referring to, he sat bolt upright in his chair.

“You know about the fact he used magic on me? More to the point, you believe that magic exists?”

The detective gave him a blank smile.

“No Mr Pliskin. I do not believe that magic exists.”

This week’s snippet is our latest visit to the world of Our Second Chance. This time around, I have included the cover which was designed by J.C. Clarke, who designed the cover of Sheltered which has been featured in my previous snippets.

This Rainbow Snippet focuses on Dustin and Phoenix as they reunite after some time apart.


The sound of his doorbell made Dustin look up from his video game endeavours. It had been a while since he had heard the object ring, because most people that visited used the knocker instead of it.

Throwing the controller onto the sofa, Dustin went across the room and unlocked the door. On the other side, was the man who gave his life its meaning, and had also broken his heart to pieces.

“Phoenix…” Dustin gasped.

Like always, the man everything that Dustin dreamed about. His long black hair fell down his back, and his green eyes dazzled like shining emeralds. His six foot frame was quite lean and understated, but his muscular tone more than made up for his apparent physical weakness.

“Can I come in?” he asked softly, as if he felt he didn’t deserve to be welcomed.

Rainbow Snippets – July 7th 2017

It’s time once again for the rainbow coloured fiction to shine through the clouds. 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 week’s snippet is our first visit to the world of Our Second Chance, and focuses on Dustin Pliskin, one of the main characters, as he makes small talk with a powerful individual who you may remember I revealed some time ago.


A thunderous crash came from the direction of the patio doors. Looking around, Dustin saw the after-effects of a giant wave splashing against the railings of the rooftop patio. Smiling, Dustin went over to the door and opened it wide. A waft of fresh sea air came over him, relaxing him to the tips of his toes.

“Is this really happening, or is it a wonderful dream?” Dustin said aloud to himself.

“I assure you my dear friend, you are very much awake,” said a familiar voice.

Dustin turned about-face, and saw that Rafius Sahir was standing by the front door. The pink haired giant of a genie was now wearing a blue button up shirt, tan three quarter trousers and a golden chain with a peach shaped locket hanging loosely around his neck.

Dustin walked over to the genie, and reached out his hand to greet him. Rafius grinned, and gripped the archaeologist hand and gave it a firm but gentle shake.

“I must admit I didn’t expect to see you so soon,” Dustin laughed.

“Neither did I,” the genie replied, “But the timing of your housewarming happened to coincide with some excellent news.”

Rainbow Snippets – June 24th 2017

It’s time once again for the rainbow coloured fiction to shine through the clouds. 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.

One thing that I try to do when I imagine my characters in my mind is to create them using a game such as The Sims, or use a doll maker like the ones provided by Doll Divine. This is one of the screenshots I took, of the characters I imagined for Sheltered.

This week’s snippet is our third visit to the world of Sheltered, and focuses on Lucas and Connor as the alpha makes a surprising discovery. To make things work in this brief excerpt, Lucas is referring to Sam at the start of the sample.


 

“Do you know where he went?” Lucas asked his lover.

“He told me that he was going to answer the door when you arrived. That’s all I know.”
Lucas frowned. His enforcer Damien had greeted him when he arrived, and had told him that the owner of the house was nowhere to be seen. Now he came to realise it, it did seem awfully strange that his ailing mate would be abandoned in his rescuer’s home. 

“Luke?”

Lucas turned his attention to the younger wolf shifter.

“What is it honey?”

Connor shuffled uncomfortably.

“There’s something you need to know about Sam.”

Lucas was suddenly filled with dread. Was his mates rescuer a criminal, a vampire or maybe something even worse?

“Sam is going to be someone very important in our lives from here on out.”

Rainbow Snippets – June 17th 2017

When I posted my last snippet, the positive reception to my upcoming book Sheltered was a wonderful surprise. 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.

Before I reveal the latest Rainbow Snippet, I would like to share with you a picture of a character from Our Second Chance, a novella that I will be releasing sometime this year. His name is Rafius Sahir, a genie who was imprisoned in a lamp for crimes against his race. At the beginning of the story, he has only wish left to grant, and Our Second Chance focuses on the wish that he grants to complete his sentence. This picture was drawn by the deviantArt user SomDude424, and I think you will agree he is a very handsome man.

This week’s snippet is from Sheltered, and focuses on Sam as he tries to apologise for running away from his second mate Lucas.


After a moment’s hesitation, Sam cleared his throat and tried his best to speak.

“I guess I owe you an explanation.”

The alpha shifter let go of the spoon, and walked slowly over to his future mate. Sam appreciated the gesture, because his heightened emotions were almost at fever pitch.

Lucas reached out his hand, and cupped Sam’s cheek inside it.

“You don’t owe me anything. It is me that should be apologising for the way I behaved,” the alpha said softly.

Sam took a deep breath, and then gave an remorseful smile.

“You didn’t do anything wrong. I probably would have done the same thing if I met you three years earlier.”

Lucas chuckled, and the sound of his voice made Sam’s wilting erection re-inflate at a record-breaking pace. The less dominant shifter tried his best to hide the sign of attraction, but it’s size had grown to the point where it was easier to go with the flow.

“Do you mind if I ask what happened to you?”
