Happy Easter, Snippetteers, for this of you who celebrate it. Otherwise, happy weekend. I have 4 days off work and will be spending them hiking and writing.
Welcome to Rainbow Snippets, the group where authors post links to 6-line teasers from LGBTQI themed WIPs, published works, or recommendations. If it’s new to you, check out the group HERE.
For the past few weeks my snippets have come from my latest release, Separation, my taboo twins story. More from this story this week. I’m continuing on from last week’s snippet, so if you missed it, you can find it HERE. Please also check out the details at the bottom of the post, as I’m giving away a copy of the book over the Easter break, to one lucky winner.
Matthew Langford is told on his twenty-first birthday that he has a twin. After the initial shock, he quickly realizes this is why he always felt part of him was missing. His search takes him 200 miles to Devon, UK, where he meets fraternal twin, Tremaine Wheal.
The pair discover many things in common, and quickly become as close as if they’d never been separated. But when they share a moment in a nightclub, each realizes there is more between them than having shared a womb. Panic sets in and they part. Once again their separation brings loneliness and pain.
Eventually, unable to stay away from each other, they tentatively move forward together as lovers. But secrets don’t stay secret for long, and discovery and questions threaten their happiness.
This is a taboo story featuring twins.
Tam resisted my efforts to pull him closer, but then gave in with a heavy sigh and leaned against me. He wrapped both arms around me and we hugged each other in silence. My heart thundered in my chest, and I felt the matching vibration of his. “I’m sorry,” I repeated.
“I liked the drawings. You’re much more talented than me.”
“Thanks.” He lifted his head and stormy gray eyes met mine. My breath caught in my throat. I tried to tell myself it was nothing, the same way I’d tried to tell myself it was nothing when he got hard dancing with me. That the look in his eyes at that moment was nothing. That I wasn’t going to… kiss him.
Our lips touched, the lightest brush, and we exhaled at the same time, eyes half closed.
What the fuck am I doing? He’s my brother. My twin. Stop now.
I started a Facebook Group this week. I’ve been meaning to do it for ages and never got around to it. Anyway, Louise’s Honeybees is now up and running. If you’re interested in joining, please let me know. I aim to post fun info about me, sneaky peeks into what I’m working on, free odds and ends, and giveaways here and there. As Separation has only been available for a couple of weeks, I’m not opening up a giveaway for a copy of it to everyone, only group members. So if you want to be in with a chance of grabbing one, you know what to do. You can find Louise’s Honeybees HERE. On the page is a post from Thursday 13 April about the giveaway.
