Rainbow Snippets Dec 9 Celebrating Rainbow Awards

Posted in Blog, Rainbow Snippets

Hello All! Here is this week’s contribution to Rainbow Snippets, an awesome Facebook group of authors and bloggers who post snippets from LGBTQ works every weekend. Catch up with all the snippets here: Rainbow Snippets.

Today I’m celebrating All the Way to Shore‘s Rainbow Awards wins of Runner Up for Best Bi Contemporary and Runner Up for Best Bi Book. I talk about all that more here. This snippet is from the beginning of the book and it introduces Anthony, who was so delightful he got his own book, In Over Our Heads, this fall.



“Jonny, was that divine creature I saw Uncle Frederick leaving with the new CEO?” Anthony leaned forward, eyes alight. “Marco Pellegrini?”

“You’ve heard of him?”

“Absolutely. He’s—quick, flag down our waiter or we’ll be sitting here for the next hour. My God, this place is the pits!”

Anthony complained about the service every time he met Jonathan for lunch at the sandwich shop, but it was close to the office and about the only place that wasn’t playing Christmas music incessantly. This December was already hard enough for Jonathan, being the first anniversary of Mother’s death, without having to contend with chestnuts roasting in every bad musical arrangement possible.



  1. LOL at that last line. I’m a bit of a Scrooge, so I feel that way a lot.

  2. LOL Me too!

  3. Love that last line. (I love Christmas music, though.)

  4. Thanks! Actually Jonathan is a musician and loves Christmas music too. That’s why it offends him to hear bad musical arrangements!

  5. “Not playing Christmas music incessantly” sounds like as good a reason as any to patronize a place! 🙂

  6. IKR? A local radio station is playing Christmas music nonstop and I can’t listen to it because 90% of it is BAD Christmas music.

  7. He seems to have lost his Christmas spirit. 😉

  8. Yes. Well, his beloved mama died at Christmastime a year ago so he isn’t feeling the “merry.”

  9. Love that last line! 😀

  10. Poor Jonathan, I like that his friend is thinking about helping him feel less sad about the holiday.

  11. No holiday songs for me either this year. I’m just over it. There’s nothing original to be had. Nice snippet, BTW.

  12. Great snippet. And congratulations!
