So. Uh. Holy crap–how is it almost freaking May? This year is blowing past like a hurricane and I’m not ready! Though, I AM ready for the wintry bullshit to pass us by.

I’ve missed a few #RainbowSnippets due to RL and being sick, but back on the horse this weekend 😀 #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.

Why help him? He was nothing to the man, simply a stranger clinging to a bus stop sign in shitty weather. Right now, he wasn’t worth anything, not even the crumpled twenty dollar bill he still clenched in his hand.
