Awkward Tomatoes

by E.D.E. Bell

Reviews:Minerva Cerridwen on Goodreads wrote:

I was a proofreader for this book and I enjoyed it a lot. It's a mix of fun, sad, and thought-provoking stories, all different enough to make you wonder what will be next. In that sense, the title fits: these tomatoes aren't your standard red, round tomato, but they have something different, something that makes them interesting. (I really love the title and the reason why it was chosen!)

Also, on a personal level, E.D.E. Bell has become a dear friend in the time we've been working together, and reading this anthology made me feel like I know em even better. The intros to the stories enrich them further and make the book partly biographical as well as a collection of enjoyable fiction.
