Rainbow Snippets – 23/10/16 – Shades of Sepia

I haven’t posted in Rainbow Snippets for a while as I’ve been busy with deadlines, so it’s great to be back. I’m in the mood for vampires today so this week’s snippet is from Shades of Sepia. I need more hours in the day so I can write my spinoff series for The Sleepless City.

He didn’t need to be close in order to find out what he needed, as his senses were much more refined than those of a human.

In this case, it was more of a curse than an advantage. The reek of blood hit him first, as he’d known it would. He felt his breathing speed up and his fangs start to descend. Just the smell of it was enough, a temptation of something he couldn’t allow himself to taste. Not again.


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

  1. Intriguing, how it’s a ‘reek’, as well as a temptation.
