Happy holidays, everyone! 🙂
Welcome back for another round of #RainbowSnippets!
In case you didn’t know, #RainbowSnippets is a Facebook 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.
Today’s snippet comes from the novel I just finished, Little Infinities. Apollo and Sebastian knocked on my head until I wrote their story, and they just flew out of me. 73k in 39 days. It hasn’t been edited yet–my brain needs a break from them!–but I can’t wait for you guys to meet these two. They’re definitely my favorite guys I’ve written so far 🙂
This is in Apollo’s POV, from Chapter 2:
Ten grand and the shiny, gold-embellished business card of a rather famous modeling agency—that’s what my devastatingly handsome savior had given me the following morning.
I’d been shell-shocked when pulled out his checkbook and wrote me out a check, signed with a flourish of purple ink, for an amount of money I’d never in my life imagined to see.
Me. A worthless teenage whore fresh out of the foster system, dead broke and turning dirty tricks on the streets of upstate New York just to try and survive. I’d gaped at him, utterly confused and uncertain if I should turn him down or take the check and run like hell.
Who in the world would offer someone like me money like that? I didn’t understand.
