My Rainbow Snippet Jan 17

The inspirational and fun Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook invites authors to post 6 sentences of their work each weekend.

From my noir-style thriller FREEMAN starring the mysterious, close-lipped Freeman who gradually lets the young runaway Kit into his life, bringing danger, disturbance and something much more rewarding.


Someone shouted more loudly, calling for Kid. I watched his mouth tighten, pursed against sudden anger. “Fucking nickname. I’m the new boy, one of the youngest. That’s what they call me.”

“That’s not a name,” I said, without accusation.

He shrugged, looking uncomfortable. “Don’t have a name. You know? Not one I want to use, anyway.”

“Kit,” I said. “That’s a name.”

“Huh?” He frowned at me, confused.

“A name,” I repeated. “Easy to remember. Better than an animal’s name.”

He did the head-tilting again. “That your name or something?” The words were aggressive, but his tone was softened in the night’s damp, steamy air. I looked steadily back at him.

“No,” I said. “It’s just a suggestion for you. A working title.”

About clarelondon

Clare London took her pen name from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with her other day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with award-winning novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic, and sexy characters. Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter three stage and plenty of other projects in mind... she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home.

  1. Ooo noir, I do enjoy those. I loved their interchange, especially the line about the a working title.


  2. I love the interaction between them. I want to know more about Kit so I hope you post more from this. (And I hate to tell Freeman this, but that’s an animal name, too.)
