The first Stories for Homes anthology was published in 2013 with the aim to raise funds for the housing charity Shelter and highlight the housing crisis in London and beyond. Known and emerging writers were invited to submit stories of up to 3,000 words on the theme of Home. After a rigorous editorial process, 63 stories were selected and the anthology was e-published 29th July 2013, followed by the paperback in December 2013. All the production and administration was done on a volunteer basis, and every penny of profit from the book goes directly to Shelter.
Within days of publication, Stories for Homes became a best-selling in its genre on Amazon. It is available from selected bookshops, Amazon and Create Space store.
