Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or published, or a recommendation of someone else’s work with at least one LGBT character. Posted at Rainbow Snippets here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/963484217054974

This week we look at the new anthology “Three Left Turns to Nowhere” from Bold Strokes Books https://www.boldstrokesbooks.com/books/three-left-turns-to-nowhere-3805-b three interconnected M/M romance novellas from three different authors all set in Hopewell, Ontario, a little town with a magical knack for bringing people together.

Possibly, really magical…

In Jeffrey Ricker’s “Roadside Assistance,” Ed Sinclair and his friends are on their way to a science fiction convention when they are waylaid in Hopewell by car trouble and a toppled tree. Here he is with his buddies arguing about which Star Wars characters they resemble. (A line or two over, but worth it!)

“So, I’m Chewbacca in this scenario, is that it?” Ed says.

“Please,” Siobhan says. “You’re clearly the Threepio.”

The neurotic fussy butler android? The grumpy walking carpet would be preferable. Everyone wants to hug Chewbacca. The only one who wants to hug C3PO is…does anyone? R2-D2, maybe.

That’s it for this week! Next week I’ll post another snippet from this fine anthology, a book I highly recommend!
