Rainbow Snippets – July 15th 2018

We are now approaching the middle of July, so I have decided to post another Rainbow Snippet. 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 start, I would like to thank Frozen-Tiger, an amazing artist who drew a picture of Phoenix Brannigan from Our Second Chance and Varron Sevarine from the Treasured series. In this image, Phoenix is being greeted by Varron in the palace of the Northern Kingdom, a few hours after Phoenix was transformed into a genie. The young green haired man is noticeably nervous about meeting the royal genie, but Varron is there to offer a warm and comforting welcome to the world that will now be his home.

This week’s snippet is a visit to the world of A Treasured Bind, the upcoming sequel to A Treasured Find. This time around, we focus on Magnus and Ceispen, the rulers of the Northern Kingdom and the biological parents of Prince Varron, and August Oberanti, one of the royal couple’s nephews.


Before either king could deliberate further on the matter, a series of loud knocks pounded on the door of their bedchamber.

Magnus snapped his fingers, and the door swung open within an instant. To their surprise, they saw their nephew August skid into the room and crash into the unlit fireplace.

“What in the world are you doing pounding upon the door of our bedchamber?” Ceispen shouted at his nephew.

August swept the coal dust off himself and bowed deeply to his uncle.

“I am deeply sorry for the disturbance Uncle Ceispen, but I am afraid that unless you intervene immediately, a terrible event is sure to transpire.”

Before either king could ask their nephew what he was referring to, a flash of lightning and several rumbles of thunder shook the entire palace.

“Does it have anything to do with why we had this sudden tropical storm on such a beautiful evening?” Magnus asked, his tone curious with a hint of accusation.

August nodded.

“The storm was conjured by your son, as a way of venting his emotional state after receiving news of a traitorous nature.”

Magnus and Ceispen’s faces drained with shock.

“Varron did this?!” Magnus eventually asked, waving his hand toward the torrential storm.

“What possible news could he have learned that would make him break one of our most sacred commandments regarding weather patterns for the Northern Kingdom?” Ceispen asked. His formal tone was almost lost, giving way to a hint of fear that he would usually deny existed in his emotional inventory.

August took a deep breath of resignation and explained the entire sequence of events to his uncles. When he had finished, both of the genie kings looked positively dumbstruck.

“Kerlaz withheld a letter from Varron’s Hiraeth for four weeks, and was about to throw the letter out of the palace?” Ceispen asked.

The younger genie nodded in response.


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 will consider having a glimpse at the completed work.

This week’s snippet is a visit to the world of Closing The Circle. This time around, we focus on Ronan and Felix during one of their first encounters.


Ronan LeClaine sat on the loveseat in the gardens of his home, waiting for his mate to come to join him. Although he had only known the man for less than twenty four hours, his adoration for the spectacled wizard filled every pillar of his being. His soft scent, infused with vanilla and rosehip buds made the alpha’s blood rush through his veins to fill his aching length, and his arms longed to hold Felix in an embrace that would last for a thousand years.

“You wanted to see me Alpha LeClaine?”

Ronan turned his gaze, to see his handsome wizard standing at the edge of the lilypond. The alpha’s wolf growled with anticipation inside of him, and Ronan barely stopped himself from stripping the man naked and licking every inch of his beautiful body.

Here he is in all his magical glory emerging from a magic lamp.

This week’s snippet is our latest visit to the world of The Shifting Secrets: Written In Blood. This time around, we focus on Alex as he is greeted by an old friend.


Breathing a sigh of relief, he turned around, and bumped straight into a man holding an umbrella. Getting to his feet, he apologised profusely.

“You still bumping into me?” said the stranger with a smirk.

Alex was about to question his words, when he realised that he had walked into Lanley. The werelion smiled, and brushed his wet hair away from his eyes. It was hard to believe in seven years, but the man had got more handsome with every day that passed.

“It seems that way,” Alex joked, but his good mood quickly faded and he returned to his sullen expression.

“So what’s got you down in the dumps?”

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.”

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.”
