Rainbow Snippets is bowing to popular demand

queen-of-liberty-202218_640Last week’s snippet from my US-set short story Epiphany, soon to be out in second edition in the Truly, Madly, Boys anthology, ended on a bit of a tease with the line, You probably want to know what he looks like, right?

So for all those who were kind enough to comment in the affirmative, here are the next 6 or so lines:


Hell, I’m no damn good at describing shit. Five-ten, maybe, least he looks like he’s a couple inches shorter than me, real skinny, with kinda mousy brown hair—see, this is why I don’t do descriptive. You’re thinking, hell, he’s nothing special, but let me tell you, he’s fucking breathtaking. Cutest little pointy chin, pale face like he don’t get out a whole lot. Fuck it. He’s beautiful. You just gotta trust me on that.

It will be available exclusively on Kindle.

    Sounds like someone is smitten.

    My best friend teases me when I find someone.. “Not really good looking but there’s just something about him.” Sounds like your narrator understands that “something you just can’t explain.”

  3. Aww, this is cute, for all the bashful swearing! 🙂
