It's weekend, and time for more Rainbow Snippets. The Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook asks its members to share six sentence snippets from their work each weekend. Check out the group's Facebook page to read all the snippets and add lots of great books to your TBR. You'll find all sorts of books with the common thread that the main character identifies as LGBTQ+.
Today is the first Rainbow Snippet of the new year! I decided to share a few lines from the beginning of The Prince's Consort this weekend since I turned an edit in to NineStar last weekend. I received the rights back to this book (which was my first published book) from Dreamspinner in October, and it's going to be republished by NineStar (hopefully in February...), so we've been polishing it up and giving it a new cover, though the story remains the same. Here are the first lines in the book:
Amory giggled as he and Tristan practically fell through the garden gate. He slapped a hand over his mouth, but Tristan must not have heard. If he had, he would have teased without mercy, as was his right as Amory’s closest friend. But Tristan tugged him along, barely giving him a chance to latch the gate behind them so the lock spell would reengage.
All morning, Tristan had been in high spirits—unusual as he was usually the more focused one in classes. But when Amory asked him what was going on, Tristan only shrugged. Maybe it was the weather. All of Jumelle seemed livelier since the warmth of spring had burst over the city.
