Rainbow Snippets: 19 November 2016 - From 'Damsel in Distress'

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

Today I thought I'd share something from a work I just had accepted for publication in a 2017 anthology. It is my first trans story and is a fantasy historical featuring knights, jousting, and the rescue of a princess. It is called Damsel in Distress.
More news on the release will following in the new year.
Ser Hemming crept forward, his hand on the hilt of his sword. There was no sound from within, nor any sign of movement, and he hesitated. Entering the chamber unbidden when he knew it to be empty was one thing; proceeding inside without instruction when the princess lay sleeping within was quite another. Yet, suppose she was in trouble. Surely duty dictated he should investigate. His mind made up, Ser Hemming slowly pushed against the door.


  1. Intriguing portrayal of what seems like a classic scenario!

  2. Makes me wonder what he'll see

  3. Intriguing snippet. Curious to know what he finds within.

  4. I wonder what he'll find? I suspect it won't be a princess. :-)
