Rainbow Snippets, January 12 – 13, 2019

In the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group, readers, writers, and bloggers share short (six sentences) snippets of their LGBTQIA+ fiction or book recs each weekend. This week, our theme is random, because (randomly) why not? And what could be more random than having an ex-lover sit at one of your tables in a restaurant and being forced to serve him? Of course, if you’re an ifrit and your ex is a fire demon, the situation can turn a bit…incendiary, particularly when tempers run, er, hot.

Hashim wound through the other tables, purposely ignoring anyone’s attempts to catch his eye, and burst into the kitchen. The kebab was still on the grill. He snatched it up.

“Hashim!” Omisan slapped his arm. “You’ll burn yourself. And that’s not done yet.”

“Don’t worry. I’ll finish it off myself.” If I don’t finish him off first.

He strode back into the dining room and straight to table nineteen. “Your kebab, sir.” He held up the skewer with his gaze riveted on Smith’s stony face, pursed his lips, and exhaled fire onto the meat, igniting it, turning it into an approximation of his fire-eating brand. When the flame was well established, he held it out. “I believe you asked for it well-done?”

This is still release week for Devouring Flame, and the blog tour is ongoing. Check out this post for a list of sites and stop by to comment. There’s a tour #giveaway on the line: a backlist ebook and $25 Dreamspinner gift card!
