The first Stories for Homes anthology was published in 2013. Known and emerging writers were invited to submit stories on the theme of Home. After a rigorous editorial process, 63 stories were selected for the anthology. All the production and administration was done on a volunteer basis, and every penny of profit from the book goes directly to Shelter.

It is available in both paperback and e-book format from selected bookshops, Amazon and Create Space store.


Praise for Stories for Homes 1:

“The theme works so well, drawing together a mixture of genres and styles to bring us all right down to almost the very bottom of Marlow’s Hierarchy of Needs – home… the overall result is sobering and uplifting in equal parts: an important reminder that what we all seek most is the very same thing” Amazon.co.uk review

“What a wonderful book for a worthy cause! I really enjoyed these stories which brought out a whole host of emotions. Home is where the heart is and there truly is heart and soul in this book.” Amazon.co.uk review
