This week I have seven stories for you. I have to add that I love so many of the stories this week, and wish I could recommend all of these in my next newsletter. Just a heads up that there will be no short story round-up next week. I am having some computer issues, but hope to be back on-track the following week.
Daily Science Fiction published Infinitely in All Directions by Willow Gatewood in July.
The Mixed Medium by Erica Plouffe Lazure was published by Fireside Fiction in August. It is approximately 1000 words and a 5-minute read.
I've got seven stories for you this week. Two at the end are by the same author as I came across those about the same time, but since they're in different outlets, met my goal to post any particular outlet only once per week. I'm not always able to meet this goal.
Forest Thing by Endria Isa Richardson was published by Fireside Fiction in July. It's about a 15-minute read.
Daily Science Fiction published Parallel Lifetimes by C.J. Heckman in June.
Translunar Travelers Lounge published Chroma Charm by Diane Callahan in February of 2020.
Persistent Visions published Etruscan Sugar by Anya Johanna DeNiro in 2016.
This week I only have six stories for you because yesterday I celebrated my one year anniversary of starting social media as Adria Bailton, of working towards building a readership. Thank you for reading my original short stories, my goal blog posts, and my short fiction round-ups. I hope you enjoy these stories.
Fireside Fiction published Across the River, My Heart, My Memory by Ann LeBlanc in July.

Seven more stories this week! Some weeks almost have a theme, which is honestly unintended. I notice there are several quite dark stories in this week's selection. Most of these sites will have content warnings, so please protect yourself. Some days these stories work for me and some days they won't.
Beethoven for Chinese New Year by Morgan Song was published by Lunch Ticket in 2019.
I hope you're enjoying the extra blog posts about Writer in Motion lately. I still may not have a bbok post this week because I've been reading not-yet published work as a beta reader. However, I still have your weekly short fiction round-up.
Fireside Fiction published Ren of the Thousand Faces by M. Elizabeth Ticknor in May.
Safe as Houses by Avra Margariti was published by Daily Science Fiction in May.
This week has another seven short stories for you. It is a little heavier on literary fiction than is typical for my weekly round-ups.

I'm excited about this week's short fiction round-up. I have seven stories for you again. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

This week's short fiction round-up includes seven stories published between 2007 and June 2021. There are a higher number of literary stories than usual. While my "home" genre is adult SFF, I enjoy literary fiction quite a bit as well. I hope you enjoy these stories.
