LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings
I’ve been stuck in my apartment for the past three days and have gotten a lot done in that time—read through ARCs for The Visionary and a couple of books by other people, sent out queries for my upmarket contemporary, and wrote 10K words on a new story. (I also got reacquainted with Netflix, but that’s not exactly relevant ;)).
Today I’m snippetting from that new story. This will be my first fiction written specifically to go indie, and should be hitting the Zon sometime in late spring/early summer.
More on that later. For now, here are the first six sentences of the WIP I’m calling “The one with the marathon” or TLH (which stands for a pretty awful title I hope to replace *fingers crossed*). The usual warning to squint applies.
The day of the half-marathon dawned clear, with a promised high of seventy. The race wasn’t officially part of the “Rock & Roll Marathon” schedule, but apparently Portland didn’t need sanctioning from anyone to throw a half-marathon based on music and beer.
Shit. I really have to do this.
My car was all packed with bottled water and promotional materials, and my “running clothes” hung over the desk chair, mocking me from across the bedroom. They seemed to be laughing at me already.
Thanks for reading!
