#ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-Five — Audio Short Fiction

What Do You Hear In These Sounds? I love audiobooks, which will surprise no one who follows my blog, but it bears repeating. If I spend too much time focusing on something near me (especially back-lit somethings) I get headaches and migraines, so especially when I'm working on a writing project, it can be audiobooks … Continue reading #ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-Five — Audio Short Fiction

#ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-Four — Nothing Without Us, edited by Cait Gordon and Talia Johnson

Gimme I've almost always got an anthology or two on the horizon I'm looking forward to, so narrowing it down to one today was rough. But! Recently, there was a successful kickstarter for Nothing Without Us and I freaking can't wait for this anthology. Edited by Cait Gordon and Talia Johnson, it's the kind of … Continue reading #ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-Four — Nothing Without Us, edited by Cait Gordon and Talia Johnson

Side characters or secondary characters or just supportive folk that appear in a story that I wish I could read more about always … Continue reading #ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-Two — Side Character Short Fiction Requests

#ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-One — The Wilde Stories, Transcendent, and Heiresses of Russ series

Simply the Best The first time I picked up a Wilde Stories annual anthology, I was hooked. Also? I added it to my writerly bucket list. I wanted to appear in a collection since I loved them so much. I was lucky enough to have that particular event occur in the 2017 issue with a … Continue reading #ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-One — The Wilde Stories, Transcendent, and Heiresses of Russ series

#ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty — “The Library of Lost Things,” by Matthew Bright

Another Volume I have so many authors I love who revisit characters on the regular, or settings on the regular, that I'm spoiled for riches, really. And though I always want more, I decided to take today's prompt from the point of view of a story that—to my knowledge at least—is singular. So! "The Library … Continue reading #ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty — “The Library of Lost Things,” by Matthew Bright
