I just got a release date for my new “hot flash” from JMS books, and it’s May 4th – Star Wars day! So today’s snippet is from Aim Higher, which is one of the first stories I ever sold, and which first appeared in the I Do Two anthology in support of marriage equality. It’s a very short story (less than 3,000 words) so it’s a very short snippet! 😉
He’s sitting on my bed again when I wake up, all bulging muscles, stupid wings and that pathetic bow and arrow. “Well, you can bugger off!” I tell him.
He doesn’t, of course. He’s got a hide like a bloody rhino.
“Language, Simone! Does your mother know you talk like that?”
Don’t forget to check out the rainbow snippets Facebook group for more little excerpts from a whole host of talented authors.
Thirteen year old Simone’s not having an easy time of it right now. Her parents have split up, everyone thinks she’s gone mad, and there’s a Greek god visible only to her who won’t stop trying to fix her up with boys. But when her father finally meets Eros—or Eric, as he prefers to be known—matters take a twist none of them were expecting!
Note: this story also appears in the I Do Two anthology
Due out 4th May 2019 from JMS Books
