Welcome to this week’s installment of Rainbowsnippets*! This one is uniquely mine, but there are lots of other great snippets to read, so after you finish here click the FB link at the bottom of the post to discover other great LGBTQIA authors and their works.
Last week, I celebrated the release of my sixth novel, Surrogate: Hunted, and this week I’m snippeting from it once again.
Surrogate: Hunted is the second novel in the Surrogate Series. It’s epic Bi Sci-Fi with extensive world building, multiple alien species, and a good dose of family in its many forms.
And, wow, just wow! The first review for Surrogate: Hunted has dropped. A. M. Leibowitz says the novel possesses “phenomenal writing, a compelling story, and characters who feel real.” I can’t ask for anything more than that. 😊 You can read their full review HERE.
The Setup: Stra has hidden Etain and Brigit in a cubby below the house, and there’s an attached escape tunnel, but that might not be enough when a vehicle filled with searchers arrives.
The voices separated, and one spoke from above the hiding spot. Someone sat in the big chair. Someone yelled. There were sounds of cabinets being opened and furniture being moved. They’re looking for us. Etain opened the small door to the tunnel and slid in their packs. The sounds stopped then, and she knew they were listening.
Brigit tapped Etain’s hand twice, which meant she didn’t know what to do.
