Rainbow Snippets: offworld edition

Today’s snippet comes to you from Help, My Boyfriend’s an Alien!, the latest mini-anthology in the Mad About the Brit Boys series with Josephine Myles (due out January 12th, 2016) and is from the start of my story Gifted in Tongues:


Spitz drifted queasily back into consciousness.


Dull, throbbing pain at the back of his eyes. His stomach appeared to have got stuck halfway through a hyper-jump, and his head felt like it’d been hit by a meteorite.

So far, so normal. Spitz decided to risk opening his eyes.

What the fuck?” He scrambled back on the hard bed, as far as possible from the green eyes with their vertical pupils staring at him from way too damn close. Massaging his temples and hoping he wasn’t about to throw up, Spitz squinted at the Felid sitting on the edge of his bed. “Just how much did I have to drink last night?”


MyBFIsAnAlien_finalLove—and desire—that’s out of this world…

It’s time to suit up, take those protein pills, and boldly come where no man has come before. Take a trip to the future, or do your bit for inter-planetary relations with some close encounters of a very unusual kind.

In this erotic science fiction triple feature you’ll meet a cat that’s anything but cute and cuddly, take a pill that’ll make you fall in love—for a night—and discover desire that transcends the limitations of a human body. It’s a brave new world as you explore the unknown in three short stories that push the boundaries of love in ways both thoughtful and tongue-in-cheek.

    That must have been quite a shock for him! Amusing snippet 🙂

    🙂 I think we’ve all experienced the early morning fixed feline death glare, but I suspect there’s more to this kitty than a desire for kibble.

    That was awesome. Brilliant description of the first moments of the morning after, but seems he has a little more to regret than most of us 😀

  4. P.T. Wyant says:

    I loved the descriptions! (I don’t drink but it sounds a lot like waking up with a migraine.)

    added this to my TBR pile 😀

    Okay, you got me at the vertical pupils. I have a fondness for felines of any kind 🙂

    I love his the bit about his stomach being stuck halfway through a hyper-jump. Hangovers are still hangovers, no matter how far from Earth you get and his made me chuckle (not without sympathy).

  8. Yikes! That would be startling to wake up to. How long has he been staring?

    LOL there’s something to wake up to! 🙂
