Rainbow Snippets – July 21st 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 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.


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.

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

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?”

Rainbow Snippets – June 3rd 2017

It’s been a few months since I last posted a Rainbow Snippet, as I decided to take a break after the publication of A Treasure Find. 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 my upcoming book Sheltered, which I featured in my latest blog post earlier this week, along with the reveal of it’s cover, which I have featured below.

This week’s snippet focuses on Sam as he cleans up from a storm, and hears an unexpected noise.


He had barely taken two steps when he heard a light noise on the breeze. At first he thought it might have been the sound of puddles splashing against the road, but then it made its presence known for a second time. After living in a pack of wolf shifters for twenty one years, there was no mistaking the source of the mysterious acoustics.  

It was the sound of a wolf in pain. 

Throwing the sponge to one side, Sam ran through the bushes and into the small forest area that was situated behind it. Fortunately for Sam’s ears, the noise kept permeating the air, so he would be kept on track until he could discover the scent of the wounded animal. 

“Is anyone out there?” Sam asked, hoping that he would be able to find someone who could assist him with the incident he was about to discover.

New Cover Reveal – Sheltered

Sorry for the radio silence over the last few weeks. I took a brief holiday from writing following the publication of A Treasured Find, but now I am back and ready to roll on once more.

The reason for my post today is that I would like to share with you the cover of my new book, which is named Sheltered. It was designed by J.C. Clarke, who runs her own shop on Etsy named The Graphics Shed. She has some great covers for sale at very reasonable prices, so be sure to check her out if you have the chance.

As for the story in question, here is the blurb I wrote for it.

Three years ago, a wolf shifter named Samuel Wake was betrayed by a man he loved and forced out of the pack he once called home. On the anniversary of his exile, Sam comes to the rescue of an injured shifter named Connor, and discovers that the beautiful man is his soulmate. Things take an unexpected turn when Sam discovers that Connor is already claimed by an alpha shifter named Lucas Malvone, and that this powerful male shares the honour of being his fated mate.

Will Connor and Lucas be able to bring comfort to their destined partner, or will Sam’s tragic past convince him to be sheltered for the rest of his life?

As a special treat for my loyal readers, and anyone who loves supernatural fiction, here is a short sample of the beginning of this new book.


Thinking back, Sam realised how lucky he had been in the days before everything went to shit. His mother and father were both wolf shifters, and as might be expected by the laws of genetics, Sam had inherited their supernatural status. On the nights when the moon was full, he would change into an enormous blonde wolf, with a white tail that seemed to shimmer whilst under the starlit skies. At any other time, Sam could also change into his other form at will, but the full moon‘s rays did something to his animal that could never be ignored. Tragically, Sam’s parents had been slain during a dispute over territory a few months after he was born, which led him to be adopted by his musically challenged foster father almost immediately afterwards. His new parents welcomed him into the loving atmosphere of their pack, and gave him an especially warm induction when Sam’s shifter abilities awakened at the age of sixteen.

Unfortunately, Sam’s new life had not remained an idealistic existence. He had been relatively exiled from the pack after an incident that involved the first man that had won his heart. Sam had discovered that his so-called boyfriend’s true motives behind their relationship were not romantically motivated. The long and short of it was that the man had been trying to marry him to gain the small fortune that would be bequeathed to Sam on his 21st birthday from his deceased parents. Thankfully , he had discovered Gareth’s treachery a few days before his inheritance was deposited into his bank account. The discovery had shattered Sam’s heart, so he had been forced to take drastic measures and reveal the man’s treachery to the pack alpha.


Before I go, I have another important announcement I would like to make.

Thank you to everyone who has purchased A Treasured Find over the last few months. I received my first royalties for the book in the last few days, and it proved to be a wonderful surprise just how much I received.

Hope you liked this cover and snippet. I will have more information about this latest book very soon, as well as more snippets from future projects.
