Seven Deadly Sins: Avarice
(Writing as Mari L. Yates)

ISBN-13: 978-1986315845

ISBN-10: 1986315843

What defines a sin? Author Teresa Bassett described it well: “Where does weakness end and evil begin?” Is committing a sin a deliberate act of intent, or simply an oversight of a corruptible character? Perhaps a combination of the two?

Welcome to the world of Avarice, where possession is glory, desire rules the mind, and both people and creatures throw aside all for what they covet.

Twenty-one authors. Twenty-one stories. One theme: Avarice.

Seven Deadly Sins: Lust
(Writing as Mari L. Yates)

ISBN: 978-1792936937

ISBN: 1792936931

Whereas the other six deadly sins offer a gratification that one must fight to deny, Lust originates with agony, doubt, and fear of rejection. But Lust can take many forms; it’s hard to tell whether the craving will be for love, control, or money. One thing is certain: Lust can both frustrate and delight.

Twenty-one authors. Twenty-one stories. One theme: Lust.


This is the final volume of our Seven Deadly Sins series.
