I was having a discussion with my husband the other day about envy. He claimed all people are envious of others. Always. It doesn’t have to be malicious or turn into an obsession that will slowly but surely eat away at the host of the envious parasite, but it’s there. It might be just the fact that your neigbour has a better apartment than you. Or that your colleague travels all over the world. Or that a friend has more free time to spend with his family. The question is, do you let these thoughts become obessions, or let them pass knowing that you are actually very happy with your life?
It was a good discussion. Much unlike the one we had yesterday when I told him how devastated I was about a recent rejection I received. His answer was “You know, a lot of people write.”
Not all conversations are hits obviously.
Today though, I get to forget about how difficult writing is sometimes, because I can finally share with you the cover for the Envy Volume of Seven Deadly Sins – A YA Anthology—a love project by Scribophile writers. It is done once again by Luke Spooner, a.k.a. Carrion House and looks just as gorgeous as the other two.
This volume contains sixteen great stories, written by new, as well as some writers you might recognize from previous volumes, and I’m not exaggarating when I say it has it all: cavemen, ghosts, humans, selkies…take your pick!
The release date will be announced soon, but until then, feast your eyes on this!
