#RainbowSnippets – Dreamers’ Destiny 4/23-4/24

My snippet is 6 sentences from my upcoming book, Dreamers’ Destiny, due out May 13th, 2016 from Dreamspinner Press. Dreamers’ Destiny is m/m, erotic romance and yes, it’s available for preorder!
(Yes, creative punctuation does happen for the snippets, lol)

Oh, and 18+ only please

Hope you enjoy!

Frustrated with life and his lack of a real relationship, he reached out and pounded his fist down on the demonic alarm clock. Satisfied when it went silent, he flipped the sheets off himself. He was annoyed, but not surprised, to see the mess he’d made—it was worse than puberty.

He hopped out of bed and stripped himself and his bed before he headed into the bathroom to grab a quick shower before making it down to the store. The Feathered Quill was a small bookstore he owned near downtown and his pride and joy. However, it would not open itself.

Dreamers' Destiny coverLiam Grady is the owner of the Feathered Quill, a quirky little bookstore in Asheville, and—though he doesn’t realize it yet—a dream walker. His last relationship failed almost a year ago, and he’s not had the interest or nerve to pursue anyone he’s met since.

Cameron Danu is a tattoo artist from rural Georgia. Cameron is left without a job after his boss, Jose, is forced to close the shop after a heart attack. When Cameron learns Jose has set up an interview for him at a small tattoo parlor in Asheville, he hopes for a fresh start in a new town.

Fate brings Cameron and Liam together, and they realize they’ve met before—in their dreams. A chance encounter and a winged tattoo might lead them to their destiny—if fear doesn’t turn their dreams into a nightmare.

    You know, some things are so uncooperative — laundry won’t do itself, dishes won’t wash themselves, food won’t cook itself, books won’t write themselves… and now stores refuse to open themselves!

    Fun snippet that makes me want to know more about the book and the characters. (I’m guessing Liam isn’t a morning person…)

    1. TempeO

      Not overly, and definitely not when he wakes up *before* the finish and with out his dream man. This is before he knows Cam is real so it’s mornings.have an extra layer of *I hate you* to them lol

  8. Antonia Aquilante
