A steamy snippet!

1RainbowSnippetsBiFlagI think I’ve recovered from walking and waiting on sheets of ice for two hours last night, so I’m going to post my last snippet from Holiday Weekend.

Why the last? Because next Friday—Dec. 16—is release day! Once Holiday Weekend has been released into the wild I’ll give those guys a rest (plus, including tour excerpts, I’ve reached the publisher’s word count limit and can’t share anything more).


This snippet doesn’t need much of an introduction;  the guys are at Ryan’s place and it’s morning. 🙂


Glenn woke about five minutes later and made an incoherent sound. When I turned, he was looking at me. He sat up fast, the sheet and blanket pooling in his lap. “Are you ironing my pants?”

“They were wrinkled.” My face heated, and I half expected Glenn to laugh, but he smiled.

A “wonderful” little snippet…


Hello Snippetteers! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend!

Today’s snippet is from Holiday Weekend, which will be released in three weeks! It’s from Glenn’s point of view and is pretty racy. I think it speaks for itself pretty well. It’s seven sentences, but you can stop at six if you’d like. 😉


Before he could draw things out any longer—maybe long enough for me to lose my nerve and quit—I dove forward and crushed my mouth onto his. His soft, warm mouth felt even better than I expected. Every time, the feelings that came with kissing Ryan seemed to grow, to magnify exponentially. If anyone had asked me to, I don’t think I could have fully described it.

Bone-meltingly wonderful.

Our height difference didn’t make it any easier, but I rocked my body lower along Ryan’s until I was straddling his dick. I couldn’t bring myself to stop kissing him long enough to suck him off after all.

A fragrant little snippet…

holidayweekend_fbprofile_optizimedforfeedHello and welcome to my snippet!

Holiday Weekend has hit the Coming Soon page so now I get to share all the pretties L.C. Chase made for the story!


Next week is Thanksgiving here in the US so today’s snippet takes place very early on Thanksgiving morning. It’s from Ryan’s POV; he and Glenn are volunteering. Larry is coordinating the meal prep, and has just asked Ryan to make the pies. I think that’s all you really need to know for this one.


Larry dumped most of the contents of a large bag of flour into the bowl of a mixer with a fragrant yeast mixture in it. “All four or one at a time. It’s your show, kid.”

“Why do you think I can—”

“Because you didn’t say you can’t.” Larry winked and pulled the bowl off the stand and into his arms. He started stirring with a thick wooden spoon, muscles bulging as he worked.

holidayweekend_fbprofile_optizimedforfeedHoliday Weekend, Buchanan House: Book Five

Ryan Orchard moved from small-town Idaho to Portland almost two years ago and still feels like a hick. When Paulie Nesbitt dumped him, he wasn’t even surprised. Despite losing twenty-five pounds since then, Ryan’s confidence is nonexistent and his life has stalled. Not only is he convinced the career he wants is beyond his reach, he’s given up on relationships. A new job at a familiar restaurant—and his gorgeous coworker—could be just what Ryan needs to believe in himself again.

Glenn Hernandez might be the only nineteen-year-old in Portland who dreads his days off. Between his horrible housing situation and the ever-present temptation to crawl back into the bottle, Glenn prefers to keep busy. He volunteers at the Elliott Foundation House, a homeless shelter helping LGBTQ sex workers. As an alum of the shelter, Glenn finds it hard to leave his past behind. But when the new server at the trendy restaurant where he works catches Glenn’s eye and works his way into his heart, Glenn finally has a reason to start a new life.


Two reveals…


Hello and Happy Friday!

Today Holiday Weekend, Buchanan House: Book Five hit the Coming Soon page at Dreamspinner. My cover reveal is over at MM Good Book Reviews~check it out here and enter the giveaway!

Also, I have an announcement. You may already know this if you’ve subscribed to my newsletter, but I’m changing my name. Holiday Weekend will probably be the last book published under the name Charley Descoteaux.

jpg-logoI’ll still be around, still writing LGBTQIA+ fiction, under the name Charli Coty.

In December I’ll kick things off with the second edition of one of my favorite short stories—Toy Run—under the new name. My first original work as Mx. Coty will be out early next year from NineStar Press.

The Descoteaux pen name will be around until at least 2021 due to existing contracts so the phasing-out will be gradual, but it’s time for a change. Hopefully the change will be easy—Coty is much easier to spell, so there’s that! 🙂

I plan to send out my newsletter at least once per quarter, but hopefully I’ll have fun things to share and give away a little more often than that. If you’d like to subscribe, please sign up here.

A six sentence snippet…

RSMMmedHola Snippetteers!

Hope you’re having a great day, where ever you are! This weekend I’ve finished proofing the holiday story (ahead of deadline :)) and am working on first edits for an urban fantasy that should be out sometime early next year. Hope you’re having a productive weekend too!

Last week my snippet was over the limit so this week’s is a tiny one to make up for that. It’s from the Christmas story, Holiday Weekend, Buchanan House: Book Five. This is from Ryan’s point of view, during his first date with Glenn.


I couldn’t figure out what was holding me back—if we were in a bar, I would’ve already made some kind of a play. But we weren’t in a bar. We were at an all-ages dance party, and my date was…. I didn’t know how old he was, not for sure. Over eighteen, I guessed. I hoped. Under twenty-one. Probably by more than a month or two.


Thanks for reading!

A fall Holiday snippet!

RSMMmedHola Snippetteers!

Last weekend in Seattle was fun, but it’s also nice to be home and spend a quiet weekend racing frantically toward various deadlines. 😀


Since I have a release date for my next Buchanan House book I’m going  to share a snippet from that story. Here are a few sentences from Holiday Weekend (Buchanan House: Book Five), in Ryan’s point of view. The whole novella will be available December 16!

(The “he” Ryan refers to in the first sentence is Glenn, in case that’s not clear. :))


He seemed to take great pleasure in tormenting me with his steamy looks and innuendo. Awesome.

Two days before Halloween, Glenn cornered me in the alley at the end of our shift. I had taken out the trash, and when I turned to go inside, Glenn was leaning in the doorway.

“What are you doing for Halloween?”

Damn, even that sounded naughty. “Nothing.”

“You feel like changing those plans?” Glenn pushed off from the doorjamb and stepped out into the alley. “How do you feel about zombies?”
