Hello & Happy Holidays to all who celebrate! Since I really don’t, my snippet isn’t holiday themed at all. If you’re in the mood for a break, I hope you enjoy this teensy one.
I’m sharing another snippet from ALWAYS FORWARD! NEVER STRAIGHT, in anticipation of its release on 1/1/19! This week our heroes are at Pride and talking about coming out stories. The first bit of dialogue is our MC, Bryan; second is Mac, Cay’s 15 y/o daughter; last, is Cay.
“Um…it’s not very interesting. My dad asked if I wanted him to take me to rent a tux for junior prom. I told him no, and he said, ‘Ladies appreciate a smart dresser.’ So I told him I wasn’t going because everyone would freak out if I danced with my boyfriend.”
“What year was that?”
“Mac, it’s not polite to ask how old someone is.”
Thanks for reading!

Love isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon.
Baxter Bryan is the nerdy half of BaxCo, a start-up in Portland’s Silicon Forest creating cutting-edge high-tech toys. He’s also a hermit. When BaxCo sponsors the Portland Rock and Roll Half Marathon, Bryan decides to break out of his comfort zone and do more than listen to the music with a beer in hand. The race has barely started when he bumps into a fit, handsome man, causing sparks to fly. But the long hours needed to make BaxCo a success aren’t the only reason Bryan spends most of his time alone in his apartment.
Cay Nissen runs every day to stay in shape. He would love to run away from his job in a Silicon Forest cube farm, but keeps returning to support his teenaged daughter. His true love is music. Cay writes songs for the band he helped form in high school but doesn’t see any way to turn music into a career. The half marathon seemed like a decent way to pass a Saturday, make his boss happy, and catch a performance of his old band all at the same time. When he meets a man who sparks his interest, the safety of his cubicle isn’t the only part of his life that’s in jeopardy of changing.
Have a lovely weekend!
They’ve got a nice banter going…great snippet!
Thanks, Kari! ❤
I want to know how his father reacted…
You can find out on 1/1/19 if you want to. 🙂
Looking forward (er, never straight) to this one, Charley!
Lol – teaching teenagers tact is an uphill struggle! 😉
Haha, it sure is! ❤
I want the dad’s response to that! 😁
I enjoyed the banter.
Nice banter! Great snippet 🙂
