Lust: Meet the Authors, Day 2

“Though lust do masque in ne’er so strange disguise she’s oft found witty, but is never wise.”–John Webster

How would you define Lust? Specifically as an emotion opposite of Love? Or perhaps as a desire so strong, nothing else can come in the way? We often hear the terms, “Lust for life” or “Lust for adventure” or even “Lust for power.” Is Lust, then, a sin, or an ambition?

What is Lust to you?

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 seventh volume, Lust, is January 9, 2019!

Soon, you’ll be able to pre-order the eBook on Amazon and order a print copy after the release. Please consider posting a review on Amazon or Goodreads.


Introducing the next four authors of Lust and their story blurbs:


Kyra Dusk lives by the belief that words are magic. She taught English for a year in the beautiful country of Japan before returning home to Houston, Texas. When she’s not glued to her laptop, devouring book candy, or traveling to inspiring places around the world, she teaches reading/language arts to third graders. Wanderlust is never far from her thoughts, and another move may be imminent as her adventure wish list grows longer every day.

Angel of Carnage by Kyra Dusk

Moth is a teenage necromancer with a gift for blood magic. When a beautiful monster promises to fulfill her darkest fantasies, she’s faced with a tough decision. Should she give in to temptation and endanger her family, or banish the creature she believes to be her soulmate? Moth can’t have it both ways, and she needs to choose before her Angel of Carnage follows through on the promise of the scars he gave her six years ago.



Shauna Ivory Evans is always writing, whether she’s traveling abroad or grabbing a cup of coffee. When not spending time in made up worlds (her own and others), she teaches Special Education Language Arts in middle school. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and two cats. This marks her first print publication. One of these days, she’ll finish that novel she’s been working on.


Dragon’s Flame by Shauna Ivory Evans

Johnston Wicker has loved Winston Broome from the first moment he saw her, but she finds him insufferably annoying. Unexpectedly transferred to a parallel world of fantasy together, old feelings come into question as new challenges arise. When Winston wanders into his tent in the middle of the night, Johnston is left wondering what she could possibly want from him on what may be their last night alive.



J. Grabarek lives in San Francisco with her twin girls and a husband willing to listen to her yammer on about her writing in exchange for half of her hot fudge sundaes. Thankfully, all of that talk—and the sacrifice of her favorite food group—has resulted in stories decent enough to publish in the Seven Deadly Sins Anthology, Wrathand in the final book of the series, Lust.

Jeremiad by J. Grabarek

At an end of year high school party, Mia meets Jeremy, a poet, a romantic. When he kisses her after stealing a bottle of wine, she has to acknowledge two things: He’s a thief and she can’t keep herself away from him. With Jeremy stuck on her mind, and the worry about a pregnancy, the path toward an answer is as prickly as the desert surrounding his jail.



Sarah Hegerty is a speculative fiction writer, shift-worker, wife, mum, and adventure seeker who just wants some sleep. Living in sunny Queensland, Australia, she spends her time fantasising about snow-covered mountains in cooler climates. Her short story “Playing The System” has been published in Seven Deadly Sins Anthology, Avariceedition. She is also currently hard at work editing her first novel, a young-adult post-apocalyptic fantasy.
