Rainbow Snippet - 29/30th Oct

Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook Group that invites authors to post 6 sentences of their work each weekend. It can be from anything you like, your current WIP, a recent release, the golden oldie that even you had forgotten you had written, or just a scrap of an idea (as long as it has 6 coherent sentences). Nothing of your own work worth mentioning? How about a 6 sentence review of your favourite LGBTQ+ story.

Another snippet from Village Love #2. For anyone that loved Resistance, this is Smudge's story. A snippet from Chapter 3.  (Unbetaed. Beware! Also I have no idea if this is 6 sentences. I kept losing count.)

 “He’s very good with the children, isn’t he?” A female voice had Smudge near jumping out of his skin. He tore his gaze from Raleigh to find the woman that had been sent to the drinks table standing beside him with a paper cup. “A much better librarian all round than the last one. Always accommodating, makes time for everyone, easy on the eye, if you like that geeky, supply teacher look, and great with kids.” She sighed. “He’d make a perfect husband. Shame he’s gay.”


  1. I love the way you worked the description into the dialogue.

  2. Snrk! I think they were on the same page, until the very last line. :)

  3. Nope, not a shame at all... ;)

  4. Sounds like Smudge got caught Raleigh-watching. :D

  5. My guess is that Smudge doesn't agree with her last line! :-)

  6. "that geeky, supply teacher look" Hahahahaha!!!!! (I married a geeky teacher, so this tickles me.)

    I'm guessing it's not much of a "too bad" that he's gay here. :)
