Confession: I’m sure this Valentine is ripe with typos. I’m not a detail-oriented editor at the best of times, and every time I sat down to copy edit this, my left hand would wander down between my legs and then my right hand would wander into my shirt and bra… um… so… sorry. On the plus side, I suspect your reaction will be the same and you too will not notice any typos.
Um. Where was I? Right:

About the author:
Cleverly disguised as a middle-aged nondescript librarian type, PW Zellie glides through life, unremarked upon but grinning slyly, enjoying all life’s yummy secrets.
So this year, no full texts of anything because I want you to buy the book, because we’re using it to fundraise for Camp fYreFly. But here’s a taste:
And here’s PW Zellie’s filthy Valentine from last year:

Screw Chocolate, Volumes 1 & 2!
Roses, cupid’s arrows, chocolate—chocolate? Screw chocolate! Queer up Valentine’s Day instead with these hilarious, heartbreaking (yes, sometimes deliciously filthy) valentines by Calgary authors who have a fresh, occasionally revolutionary (always, insightful) take on love.
Featuring fiction (or is it?), poetry, and non-fiction (or is it?) from Beatrice Aucoin, Dallas Barnes, L. Sara Bysterveld, Lotis Cervantes, M. Jane Colette/Marzena Czarnecka, Callan Field, Elisa Kae, Tanysia Komers, H. P. Longstocking, Tet Millare, Brooke Nicholas, Alyssa Linn Palmer, Nola Sarina, Dana Stan, T, Mel Vee, Ann Zee, and PW Zellie, and photography from Jennifer Weihmann (Volume 1) and Leslie Pringle (Volume 2).
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!
Stay in the loop on what we’re planning for the night by RSVP’ing to our FAB FACEBOOK EVENT:
