So this year, I want you to buy the book, because we’re using it to fundraise for Camp fYreFly. But here’s a tiny taste of Alyssa AWESOME story:
Alyssa had an intense piece in last year’s Screw Chocolate collection, also featuring Alex and Vee:

In February 2017, we launched Screw Chocolate as our first collaborative multi-author multi-media project, and it kind of kicked ass. This year, we are thrilled to bring you Screw Chocolate 2 AND Screw Chocolate, our original 2017 edition — for the first time in a holdable, huggable, kissable, bitable (grrrrr) version.
If you are in Calgary on February 12–COME TO OUR LAUNCH PARTY!
