Rainbow Snippets, July 30-31

Welcome, Snippeteers and other visitors! I’m posting a free serialized novel called Fidele, the story of Malcolm Carmichael, a WWII veteran dealing with the death of his mother, a disappointing love affair, and the ghosts who don’t leave him alone.

“There are plenty of other old places that are willing to feed them a story of restless spirits in exchange for tourist money.”

“Doesn’t Fidele have any stories?” I said, smiling at him. “What restless spirits does it possess?”

To my surprise, neither Noel nor Willie answered at first, though their eyes met in the rear view mirror. Finally Noel said, “Any old house is going to collect a tale or two. Let’s get out of the city, Willie.”

“Yes, Mr. Noel,” Willie replied, and as he took the first chance to turn away from the Quarter I leaned back in my seat and wondered at their response to what I had thought was an innocent question.

Fidele is updated every Friday. 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.
