Rainbow Snippet – Shadowboxing #4

The last Rainbow Snippet from Shadowboxing for a while, but I had to share one more as the 2nd edition is out from DSP Publications on Tuesday!

He pulled out his Colt and motioned for Ken and Liang to follow. “It’s time we showed the Gestapo that it doesn’t pay to mess with the good guys.”

Liang and Ken exchanged amused looks before they drew their own weapons. “I’m almost afraid to ask which one of us is Tonto,” Ken said dryly.

Matt grinned. “Hi-yo, Silver.”


About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with two cats who are convinced that the house is run to suit them; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date it appears as though the cats may be winning. In 2008 she completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher and a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts other authors, reviews for the GLBTQ Historical Site “Our Story” and Top2Bottom Reviews, and writes monthly blog posts for Authors Speak and Love Bytes. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions four times and reached the finals three times in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com

    I’m not sure if they aren’t too worried about the upcoming gunfight or if they are using humor to cover their nerves.

    The “Hi ho Silver” comment made me smile. Reminded me of Bill in Stephen King’s IT 🙂

      Thanks. I found out after I’d named Matt – and written this scene – that Bryant’s Gap is the canyon in Texas that gave birth to the Lone Ranger.


  3. Nice bit of humor, right before the action begins!

  5. Like the banter. But now I’m worried for the guys.
