Release Date: March 13, 2009
Author’s Comments: Two of my short stories appear in the first Absolute-XPress Flash Fiction Challenge anthology; “Truth Will Out “- Wining Entry for Envy, and “Three Little Pigs” – Tied Winning Entry for Gluttony.
When the gauntlet was thrown we had to compete against each other and write seven sinister stories – each based on one of the seven deadly sins: Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Pride, Sloth, and Wrath.
Each story also had to be written in Flash Fiction: Fiction of Extreme Brevity
With a rush of adrenaline, a flurry of words were forced onto our computer screens – some in a less than gentle fashion. Soon our creativity was polishing the sentences and we hoped the paragraphs told each story in a manner unique to its author. Some stories reveal the entrapment in a single scene, others expose the characters fall from grace over a longer period of time.
Over all, these short stories accomplish their mission and show off the seven deadly sins in a style that is easy to read and hard not to enjoy.
