Rainbow Snippets: 29 October 2016 - From 'The House Guest'

Saturday's here again! Time for more Rainbow Snippets.

Today I'm sharing a snippet from my newest release The House Guest.

This MM paranormal short story (from MLR Press) tells of a young man who moves into his new home, only to discover he has an unexpected nocturnal house guest.

Zach pushed the covers back slowly and carefully, determined not to spook his visitor. Had this stranger meant him harm, Zach doubted he would be singing such a cheerful song. Besides, he’d had his chance the night before, and he’d neither attacked Zach nor robbed him. Whoever it was clearly had another reason to be there, and Zach resolved to find out what it was.

When Zach moves into his new flat, the last thing he expects is a nocturnal house guest.

Zach is thrilled with his new flat, until strange noises disturb him. Who wanders his home at night, laughing and singing, and why is the place always spotless when he never cleans? There was no mention of a house guest in the contract, but it seems Zach has a nocturnal visitor.

Bogdan never expected to end up in Zach's tiny flat, but now that he's here, he intends to make the best of it. Zach seems preferable to his last master, and he waits for the right moment to announce his presence. He doesn't count on Zach's determination to seek out the truth himself in the meantime.


  1. Ooh, this all sounds very intriguing! Congrats on the new release. :)

  2. Ooo, what an intriguing introduction to these characters! I like your cover, too! Congrats on your release!

  3. Goodness. I think my own determination might rival Zach's (although I'm sure I wouldn't be so nonchalant about it if I were in Zach's shoes)!

  4. Oh how intriguing. I like that he's not exactly frightened.

  5. Ooh, interesting. I wonder who or what he really is.

  6. Oh, this sounds like a fun story! (And, hey, if Bogdan is into cleaning, can he come live here?)
