Today is the release day of the multi-author anthology Sexy to Go Gay Romance, which includes “Loggerhead,” my short story about a gay couple who finally get the honeymoon they never had. So that’s where my contribution this week to the Rainbow Snippets meme comes from:
Soon we were out on the empty beach, treading the strip of packed sand created by the tide. Thrilled not to be running on concrete for once, I’d left my shoes at the house. Jake wasn’t so foolhardy. “We’re not used to running barefoot,” he said. “And running in sand is already hard enough. I bet you won’t last fifteen minutes.”
I didn’t care. I loved the feel of the sand squishing between my toes, and how each stride forward seemed to awaken muscles in my legs I hadn’t used in centuries.
