Rainbow Snippet January 28

I’m back from a long road trip and here with this weekend’s Rainbow Snippet from One. Hope your January was peaceful and productive. 


Lana frowned. “I know I have fender covers, but I can’t remember where I put them.” She walked to the far end of the garage and rummaged through the wall cabinets. Mac studied the schematic in the manual and the engine matching up the images in the book with the engine in front of her. The opening riff of one of her favorite dance tunes reverberated through the garage. Lana returned with the fender covers. Mac smiled at her. “I like your music.”

Lana grinned. “It reminds me of college and graduate school.”

Mac laughed. “It reminds me of college girls.”

Lana raised an eyebrow. She placed the fender cover over the right side of the car and then the left. She turned to face Mac and rested her hand on her hip. “Any particular girl?”

“Nah.” Mac’s face grew warm. “No one special.” No one like you.

Connect with other LGBTQI authors at:


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.

  1. I love how real that is. Even all these years later, if I hear certain songs, it immediately brings to mind memories from my college days, so I can totally relate. Nice snippet! ♡
