The final Buchanan House series introduction…

1RainbowSnippetsBiFlagHola Snippetteers and welcome!

Thanks for keeping on keeping on while i was laid up last week. To be honest, it’s been a long time since i’ve felt 100% but hopefully that’s about to change. I don’t want to wish my life away, but will be happy when this recovery is over and i can go back to doing all the things!

I’m sharing from BH#6 today–the last book in my Buchanan House series (that is still not finished). The last time i snippetted i shared the opening six lines, from Chase’s POV. You can find those here (it’s been awhile!).

This is a little longer than six lines and i apologize for the dense block of text (and its unedited state). It’s from chapter two and seemed to show a lot about Garrett without giving away too much. Still, i had to redact an entire sentence to avoid a spoiler for Safe House. You can find out what it was on September 19. 😉

 

Garrett couldn’t remember when he’d last seen a picture printed out on paper but Chase had five. [Redacted] Garrett remembered cameras flashing then but had avoided them so he wasn’t surprised when he didn’t see himself in either of those. The other three surprised his breath away. All had been taken at a bonfire, he and Chase sitting on the sand and leaning against the logs ringing the fire pit. In two they sat side by side, attention focused somewhere past the camera’s reach, Chase’s arm around Garrett’s shoulders. Garrett took the third from the dresser to examine it more closely. In it, he sat between Chase’s tented knees, leaning against his chest and looking up into his face, one of Chase’s arms draped loosely across Garrett’s body. He couldn’t see it but he knew that hand gripped his waist—he could almost feel it there, the warmth spreading from his side throughout his body. The flames painted lovely colors across their faces as they gazed at each other.

A new opening six for #RainbowSnippets

1RainbowSnippetsBiFlagHola Snippetteers and welcome!

I’m sharing from a new story today, the one that will hopefully become BH#6–the last book in my Buchanan House series. Which might explain why i’ve been stalling working on it. I’ve loved writing this series and don’t really want it to be over (even if it will be nice to write something completely different).

Here are the first six lines. Hopefully posting them will help light a fire under me to get this story finished before deadline. It has a lot of heavy lifting to do where the series is concerned. 🙂

 

Chase watched as more figures appeared behind the mourners standing around the mouth of the open grave, huddled under their umbrellas. The new group wasn’t dressed for the weather, they wore shorts and sandals, their hair hanging in long unruly strings and obscuring their faces. He found it harder and harder to breathe, and to act like he wasn’t watching.

Garrett might stop drawing if he felt everyone’s attention on him and Chase didn’t want that to happen. The plain brown paper covering the table at Brewfest could use more than the standard “X Loves Y” and “Kilroy Was Here” type of graffiti but the real reason was that he loved to watch Garrett work. Even when his work veered into dark places as it was obviously doing.
