#RainbowSnippets #novelines Thirty-Eight 3/17 I Smell Smoke

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 a wonderful review of my sixth novel, Surrogate: Hunted. This week I’m snippeting from Surrogate: Hunted, my 3/1/18 release once again, but I’ll be moving on before long to my upcoming novel Cleaning House. This does not mean, however, that this is the end of the Surrogate Series. There’s at least one more novel to come, if not two because Etain’s adventures are far from over.

Surrogate: Hunted is the second novel in the Surrogate Series. It’s epic Bi-Poly Sci-Fi with extensive world building, multiple alien species, and a good dose of family in its many forms.

The setup: Etain and Brigit have backed their way into the escape tunnel beneath the house because searchers have found the cubby they’d been hiding inside. These Cycalks have searched the space and have now retreated, leaving the house silent, which Etain knows isn’t good.

     The vehicles moved away, and it was quiet, far too quiet for anywhere to be after such chaos.

     Brigit touched Etain’s sleeve twice.


     “I smell smoke.” Brigit retreated deeper into the tunnel.

     The house above them exploded, collapsing the tunnel in front of them.
