PRAISE FOR STORIES FOR HOMES 2

“A cornucopia of witty, tragic, elegant, raw, heart-warming and terrifying stories that take the idea of Home, play with it as only truly talented writers can, and all to help those who have no home at all.” EMMA DARWIN, author of The Mathematics of Love and A Secret Alchemy

Stories for Homes 1
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.
