SDS Wrath–Meet the Authors, Day 2

Are you a slow-to-burn person who simmers until you explode? Or does your anger flash hot and bright, only to be extinguished moments later? Does revenge calm the rage?

The twenty-one authors of Wrath’s volume in the young adult series Seven Deadly Sins have their own ideas.

It’s my pleasure to introduce you seven more authors and their stories! If any of the blurbs catch your eye, consider posting a review on Amazon or Goodreads. The anthology will be released on August 11, 2017!


No More Fruit Cake by Matthew Dewar

Kendra starts working at Hope Springs, where she will care for elderly patients with dementia. She is full of young ambition, and wants to make a difference. But a low budget and understaffing mean the patients can’t get the proper care they need. The workers who do show up seem to be more concerned about the looming full moon than anything else. Kendra doesn’t believe in the old wives’ tale, but could there be some truth to it?

Matthew Dewar’s passion for reading and writing developed at a young age. Fascinated by all genres, enthralled by the endless creativity of imagination, and captivated by foreign worlds and intriguing characters, Matthew makes time in his busy schedule to write every day. If he’s not reading or writing, you might find Matthew working as a physiotherapist, teaching group fitness classes, entertaining his dog, or dreaming of travelling to an exotic destination.

In May 2017, Matthew published Nightmare Stories, a collection of young adult horror fiction where twelve young teens discover that happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy tales. His short stories have appeared in From the Stories of Old, and The Seven Deadly Sins Anthology: Gluttony.

The Tattoo Artist by J. Grabarek

Since Pop’s death, Billy has complied with all of Ma’s requests. One night he meets Sara, a young tattoo artist, who weaves her magic through words she writes on Billy’s skin. Ma hates the tattoos, while Billy feels newfound energy surging through his body. When Ma crosses the line with Sara, Billy is forced to take a stand or forever be left to do what he is told.

J. Grabarek is a beautiful Californian enchantress who weaves stories from inside a secret chamber in the darkest parts of her castle. Her dragon Blue snores by her side as she writes of the sea, mermaids, and delicious tacos. Blue stop it. She meant sailors, ships, and hot dogs. Blue wants the readers to know the truth: he’s hungry, he is a Pug dog, and the stories are written while she is sitting in a maroon bean bag in her closet. She and Blue intend to read her story and other excellent stories in this Wrath volume of the Seven Deadly Sins Anthology while sharing a few slices of pizza.

Seeing Red by Chris Kennedy

College student Danny is a computer genius, building an artificial intelligence robot that can do his classwork for him and earn him some extra dollars on the side. He even personifies the robot, naming her Maud’Dib. Danny scavenges as much memory and other parts as he can to add to her, including Wi-Fi access. Soon, Maudie takes control of her motherboard and starts making her own decisions: humans were starting to look not only unnecessary, but downright dangerous.

Chris Kennedy writes for fun and enjoys twisting history into parables. His family tells him he’s a compulsive liar because he likes to make things up. When not researching his MA, he works for a modern communications company and dreams of retirement, which he intends to spend making up more lies and turning them into yet more stories for this excellent series.

Wrath: An Archaeological Case-Study by C.P. Mulé

The year is 3082; the human species is well nigh finished on what is now known as the planet-state of Europa. An Archeologist has returned from another intrepid journey amongst the remnants of what was once called North Eastern America. The cocky chap relieves himself of the late-world’s many stressors the same way his ancestors did: A journal entry in the twilight of his otherwise dark and foreboding study.

C.P. Mulé has had many childhood nicknames—all of his own invention. The boy of yesteryear took inspiration from films, athletics, or even from on-the-nose dad jokes. This assortment of many masks never gave him any sort of satisfaction. In a journey to better himself and those he loved dearly the boy became a young man; he took off his mask and put on his glasses. Now his every day is filled to the brim with joys and the world’s great mysteries like this very publication. He is so very humbled to appear in the Seven Deadly Sins Anthology with his first-ever published work, Wrath: An Archaeological Case-Study.
