Welcome, Snippeteers and other visitors! I’m posting a free serialized novel called Fidele.
Malcolm Carmichael is a WWII veteran dealing with the death of his mother, a disappointing love affair, and the ghosts who don’t leave him alone.
In the current chapter, Malcolm and Noel Thibodeaux get to know each other a little better.
“You haven’t played for a long time.”
“If I start playing again,” I said, “they’ll bleed.”
“You don’t strike me as the kind to be afraid of blood.”
“I’m not afraid of blood.”
“Then why don’t you play?”
I gazed at him — dark hair framing his face, his intense ocean-colored eyes, a mouth that looked like it could be so, so soft — and said, “There’s not much music left in me since the war.”
Fidele is updated every other Friday (more often when I can). You can find the Table of Contents here.
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.
