Rainbow Snippet – 7/8/16 – Comes a Horseman

My Rainbow Snippet this week is from Comes a Horseman book 3 of my WWII Echoes Rising series. The chapter I’ve just finished focuses on Matt and Ken so it seemed apt to share some of their conversation.

Even as he spoke the words he shivered. He’d have to find the strength somewhere, but those nights he found himself back in his nightmares he wasn’t so sure he could, even to save the person he loved.

“I’m sorry,” he said. “I shouldn’t—”

“Let’s not make promises neither one of us is sure we can keep,” Ken said. “The intention is there, that is what matters, right?


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

    This makes me want to know more about the characters, and the nightmares.

      Thanks. This the third – and final – book in this series. I’ll be sad to say goodbye to these guys although I suspect they might show up in freebie short stories. I’ve been writing them for too long.


  3. There’s a definite truth in that snippet.


  4. Now I’d like to read their story from the beginning.

      Sorry, I thought I’d replied to you! Thank you, glad you enjoyed the conversation. Their story begins with ‘Shadowboxing’, continues in ‘Winter Duet’ (out in December) and this is the final book in the series.
