So this is cool.
As you may know, the awesome website YARN (YA Review Network) occasionally publishes short stories of mine. Last month they did my timey-wimey anti-love story, 700 Years in Heaven.
In addition to short-fiction and interviews, YARN also creates lesson plans around their publications. This month, their Japan-themed curriculum features Abandon Changes: A Girl Parts Story, originally-posted in 2011.
It’s super neat, as a writer, to see your stuff used to teach. I’m flattered to be included. The lesson plan looks super cool (I wish we had stuff like this when I was in high school). Check it out.
What if you could be with the person you love forever? Well, not quite forever, but a really long time. Like…maybe a bit too long…
A late night high school party. Some harmless flirting. And a pre-fab time machine.
Next Monday, February 11th, Y.A. Review will publish my brand new short story: 700 Years In Heaven.
I’m so excited about this one. Mark your calendars! And in the meantime, you can check out Y.A. Review’s post of Abandon Changes: A Girl Parts Story.
Dropping February 14th, 2012 in paperback!

Remember, you can find out what happens to Rose in Abandon Changes, right now on Yarn!

“The recipient is an American girl, your age. A club kid. Tonight she’s at the Purple Flower Room. She calls herself Iris, and she’s got bottle-blue hair.”
So it was drugs . X or ketamine or that new one, Path, the “empathy drug.” It didn’t matter what the package was. In four hundred runs she’d never opened one or asked what was inside. “That’s what makes you a good runner,” Joe always said. “Light feet and no curiosity.”
“Where’s the pick up?”
“No package,” said Joe. “Just a message. Make sure you get it right. I need you focused, Rei.”

It’s official! A GIRL PARTS story will appear later this year on the fabulous and prestigious YARN, a.k.a the Y.A. Review Network. The story takes place six months after the end of GIRL PARTS and will reveal, among other things, Rose’s whereabouts.
I’ll keep you posted on the release date. Now, back to writing…
