Rainbow Snippets is due out on Star Wars day

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

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
