Rainbow Snippet - ’Til Death Do Us Part




I've joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: "Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!)." Pretty cool, eh? Don't forget to "Like" my Facebook page while you're there!


Last week I shared a snippet from my novella, Cultivating Love. It's an oldie but a goodie, and is still available at Loose ID and a variety of distributorsThis week I'm going to share another snippet from my upcoming novel, ’Til Death Do Us Part (to be released at JMS Books on April 3, 2016, available for pre-order, now). 


In this snip, Sam's family wants to meet Henry, and Sam has just informed Henry of this fact.



Henry put down the red pen he’d been holding and set aside the stack of homework papers he’d been grading. Family? Unlike his own family, Henry knew Sam’s parents were accepting of their son’s sexuality, but would that really extend to acceptance of his boyfriend?

“Yikes.”

“Yikes?”

“I figured that would go over better than ‘oh, shit.’” 



      


’Til Death Do Us Part


Henry and Sam Miller-Greene are living the dream. They love their careers -- which afford each of them opportunities to travel to exotic locations -- they love their home, Sam’s caring family, and each other. They disagree on the subject of adoption, but are fully committed to each other in marriage ... ’Til Death Do Us Part.

The dream is shattered when Henry’s plane crashes and he’s presumed dead. But four people -- Henry, two other men, and a child -- survive undetected on a remote, small, and insignificant island. Will Sam and Henry’s love be able to survive, as well?

Henry fights to endure in harsh conditions, never knowing when disaster will strike. Sam struggles with his loss, but with help moves on with his life. Will Sam be able to put aside his new love when he reunites with Henry?

  8. I think 'oh shit' is probably more accurate! Meeting parents is a big step. :)
