Delighted to announce that the first author has been signed to Retreat West Books. Amanda Huggins has signed a one-book deal for her short story collection, Separated From the Sea, which will be published in June 2018.
I knew as soon as I started reading it that it was one for Retreat West Books. In stories spanning generations and continents, there is a sense of yearning that underpins them all along with beautiful prose and imagery that transports you. I’m very proud and excited to be publishing Amanda’s work, which deserves to find a large readership.
The collection includes a number of stories that have been previously published as well as many new stories, and is Amanda’s first short story collection. She said: “I’m so excited to be the first author signed by Retreat West Books! As Separated From the Sea is my first full length short story collection it’s very important to me. That’s why I’m really looking forward to working with Amanda, as I know it will be a true collaboration, and that I’ll be involved in all the important decisions relating to the finished book. I can’t wait to get started!”
