Brick Moon Fiction

Happy November Fictional Cafe Listeners! To start off the new month we’re posting two podcasts from Brick Moon Fiction! 89.9% by Lauren A. Forry, and The Inherited Planet by Lauren Signorino. Brick Moon asked a group of writers a while back to give the listeners a look at what they thought the future of romance and dating would be and they got some truly moving stories (remember OpenBook by Sam French?). This one from Lauren A. Forry was no exception and we are 100% confident you’ll be surprised and moved by 89.9%. Enjoy! One of the most rewarding prompts Brick Moon Fiction ever gave their writers.
