There are no secrets in Saintstone…

Imagine a world where your every action, your every deed, is marked on your skin for all to see.  And Leora has something to hide.

When Leora’s father dies, she is determined to see her father remembered forever. She knows he deserves to have all his tattoos removed and made into a Skin Book to stand as a record of his good life. But when she discovers that his ink has been edited and his book is incomplete, she wonders whether she ever knew him at all.

INK is a story about love, loyalty and the desire to live for ever.  It’s a tale that gets under your skin.
