Rainbow Snippets is back

Hi all! Apologies for the lack of snippetry over the last…ye gods, has it really been a month?  The Samhain closure (and, all right, at least a couple of Saturdays, my social life) has kept me busy of late, but hopefully normal service will be resumed from now on.

For today, here’s a snippet from Angel, which will be released in second edition next week:


“You don’t remember me, do you?” Andras said at last. He laughed, a short, dry sound without much humour in it. “Must be nearly twenty years ago, now. But I remember you, Donnie.” He paused. “Not the sort of thing I’d ever forget, is it? The day I found out I’m a demon.”

Don’t forget to check out the rainbow snippets Facebook group for more little excerpts from a whole host of talented authors.



How do you know if you’re one of the damned?

As a child, Don wanted to become a priest. Now a grown man mostly at ease with being gay, he’s left the Catholic Church and has chosen instead to help people through his work as a parole officer. His strong faith is shaken when his latest assignment turns out to be Michael, a young man Don hasn’t seen since he took Michael to church as a child—and saw his parish priest cast Michael out of the church as a demon.

Meeting him as an adult re-ignites the obsession Don had with the boy he couldn’t save—but can Michael be saved at all? Or is the strangely compelling demon with a taste for risky sex as damned as he believes himself to be?

Due out in second edition from JMS Books on 11th March

Available to pre-order: JMS Books | Amazon 

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at: www.jlmerrow.com
