The Making Of Us - I do #RainbowSnippets #LGBTQIA

Brief explanation:
Another snippet from The Making Of Us. You can read the others here.

The Making Of Us is the fourth book in the Checking Him Out series, but it’s a stand-alone story about friendship, love and romance—LGBTQIA, with the emphasis on the B, Q and I.

The main characters are Jesse and Leigh, who first appeared in Taking Him On (Book Two), which is Noah and Matty’s story.

The Making Of Us is first-person, told from Jesse’s perspective.

I wasn’t going to post this week, but I just reached 50k, so here are the six lines that took me across the threshold!

Here’s the snippet:
“If you don’t want to, that’s OK,” Leigh assured me doubtfully. “We could leave it for a bit, until we’re—”

“I do.” I looked up and held Leigh’s gaze—until they broke it with an eye roll.

“I wasn’t proposing!” they said. What could I do but kiss that cheeky grin?

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!).

In this group you'll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story's main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

And…if you’re reading this on Sunday 16th April, I’m on Beaten Track Radio from 8–9 p.m. (BST - that’s 3–4 p.m. EDT / 9–10 p.m. CET). I’ll be answering questions, sharing some music and generally being slightly less introvert than usual.

You can listen via:

Thanks for reading,
