We're delighted to say that Amanda Huggins, who has a host of InkTears awards on her mantlepiece, has published her debut short story collection Separated from the Sea with Retreat West Books. You can find a copy here on Amazon. If you've been an attentive InkTears reader, you may even recognise a couple of stories!
Crossing oceans from Japan to New York and from England to Havana, these stories are filled with a sense of yearning, of loss, of not quite belonging, of not being sure that things are what you thought they were. They are stories imbued with pathos and irony, humour and hope.
Evie meets a past love but he's not the person she thinks he is; a visit to the most romantic city in the world reveals the truth about an affair; Satseko discovers an attentive neighbour is much more than that; Eleanor’s journey on the London Underground doesn't take her where she thought it would.
Congratulations, and best of luck Mandy! We are sure it will be a success.
