Avarice: Meet the Authors, Day 2

“Poverty wants some things, Luxury many things. Avarice wants all things.” –Benjamin Franklin

Of the seven deadly sins, Pride, Envy, and Avarice are the three that most human beings possess in one form or another. Mild or intense, deliberate or careless, they are inside us all. Do we have the fortitude to prevent an escape from our thoughts and into reality?

It’s time for another volume of Seven Deadly Sins, A YA Anthology. This is Day Two of our traditional introductions to the authors and their stories.

The release date for the sixth volume, Avarice, is April 3, 2018!

Pre-Order the eBook on Amazon and order a print copy after the release. Please consider posting a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

True Love Scars by Kassandra Flamouri

I bet most girls think their crushes’ girlfriends are evil, soul-slurping succubi, and I was no exception. The difference was that I wasn’t speaking metaphorically when I told Danny his perfect new girlfriend with her perfect, mile-long legs and perfectly perky boobs wasn’t a girl at all but a demon. Like, an actual, honest-to-god, bleed-you-dry-and-wear-your-skin-as-a-onesie demon.

The Wild Card by Lai Fox

Sarah can’t remember a time that her family wasn’t poor. After years of hard work and saving, she’s about to go to college. Her family decides to take a trip to the nearby city of Las Vegas for one last hurrah before she leaves. On their last day there, Sarah urges her father to slip a twenty into the slot machine. What happens next could change their lives forever.

E.E. Green believes anything has the potential to become a great story. Four-year-old E.E. demonstrated this belief when she strung together random numbers and called it a love poem to her parents. From that day on, she has danced the line between her fictional imaginings and reality, and in 2017 she finally strung enough random words together to complete her first novel. As a Minnesotan living in Ohio, E.E. makes a home with her husband, three children, and two dogs. There’s another little one on the way, but she’s not ready to reveal whether the new addition is a baby or a puppy just yet. E.E. is delighted to see her short story, Pleonexia’s Labyrinth, in print among the many creative tales compiled in Seven Deadly Sins, A YA Anthology: Avarice.

Pleonexia’s Labryinth by E.E. Green

A poor girl in servitude to the kingdom is required to follow her young prince into a labyrinth designed by the she-witch, Pleonexia. Within its walls, the prince is promised a treasure beyond his wildest desires—but only if he chooses the right path and sees to it that it’s lavish. With each wrong path, the prince’s avarice grows, and the poor girl must follow him deeper into the maze. Is the treasure waiting in the heart of the labyrinth the one thing that should satiate all greed?

Sarah Hegerty never knows what day it is or if she should be sleeping or awake, an affliction of years of shift-work. Most of the time she remembers that she lives in Australia, the big island in the Southern Hemisphere—at least when she remembers she is on Earth. The lucidity that comes from juggling a normal life with sporadic sleep does have its benefits though. Characters from worlds existing only within her mind scream at her to be written into life. Sometimes, just sometimes, she succumbs to their desires. Playing the System is Sarah’s first published work, although, if the voices don’t let up, it’s sure not to be her last.

Playing the System by Sarah Hegerty

Adam and Josh are best friends, that is, until Adam realises there is something else he desires more than anything. A PlayStation. Adam is willing to do whatever it takes. After all, there’s no harm in playing the system a little, is there? What’s the worst that could happen?
