Blythe Woolston & Richard Larson: Valentines from YARN

We don’t really, um, do Valentine’s Day in your usual candy and cut-out card way here at YARN.  Perhaps you remember Chris Campbell’s “The Lover” from last year?  Yeah, that’s more how we roll.

So this year, we have two amazing Valentines for you:  A brand-new short story by Blythe Woolston, author of “The Freak Observer,” last year’s winner of the William C. Morris YA Debut Award.  Her latest, “Catch and Release,” was just released!  AND, poetry by Richard Larson, finalist for Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award, for “Devolution.”

Excited yet?  We thought so.
