Apparently I only suggested three stories last week. Which is a huge oops because I have a ton to suggest. Here they are and keep your eyes on this space and my social media for more!
I started posting daily stories for people to read in April again. Here are the three stories posted last week.
The Music Station by Amanda Saville was published by Apex Books and Magazines Patreon in March. I was in a workshop wtih Amanda and I'm still thinking about the story I read by her. This piece of flash is absolutely beautiful.
Randomly, I decided to make a little comment about each of the stories this time. I will try to do that henceforth-just a line on why I picked it. Some weeks it may get skipped, some stories it may get skipped. But I hope it adds to your enjoyment.
I only have four stories for you this week. I'm on somewhat of a social media hiatus right now and have not kept up with story posting.
Wyldblood Press published Bite Back by Marissa James this month.

Starting in Fall of 2020, I posted short fiction I'd been reading on my Twitter. Just about a year ago, I started posting story suggestions every day. It wasn't until February that I started posting round-ups here of the stories. I generally post weekly, but I posted nearly daily at first to catch-up. Here's to another year of daily story posting.
This week I suggested seven more stories in my daily story suggestion on Twitter and Facebook. Here's a summary.
