Stories for Homes 2 - update

Published by: Debi on 12th Sep 2017 | View all blogs by Debi

We have a launch date for the e-book anthology for SfH2: 28 September. The paperback will be launched in November. We can then start raising serious money for Shelter. SfH1 raised over £3000 and we're hoping to double that this time.

Please check out the website. There are tabs for the online anthology (free stories on the theme of home), real life stories, stories from the frontline (a series of articles by a professional who works with homeless people) and a news page, which will be regularly updated.

There are many Cloudies among the authors and other supporters of the project and everyone can get involved by joining our Thunderclap if you're on FB, Twitter and/or Tumblr. If you join up, you're giving Thunderclap permission to send one tweet or post from your account on 28 Sept - e-book launch date - giving us the best chance to get the hashtag #SfH2 trending. It only takes a minute to sign up and is completely legit and safe to do. Please do join us and help us to make a difference.

    Yay! This is fantastic. I'm sorry I've rather let my blogging about Stories for Homes slip on here, Debi... my bad. But, please everyone, click onto Thunderclap to support this wonderful project. For homes and literature!!!

    Exciting discussions happening round the cover. Sally (my co-editor) has created a piece of unique artwork, which we plan to auction off later to raise more money for Shelter.

    Meanwhile, we have 73 people supporting the Thunderclap. We need 100 for it to happen. Please, please, pretty please sign up to it. As I said before, all you are doing by signing up is giving Thunderclap permission to send one tweet or post from your Twitter and/or FB account on 28 Sept. Please spread the word to family and friends too. Let's make this anthology huge and raise some serious money for Shelter.

    Yeah, you did JD! I thought you might :-). Good to see you back! We're at 90 supporters now. Just 10 more to make the Social Media campaign get off to a flying start on launch day... More takers?

    We've reached the magic figure of 100, thanks to people like all of you, which means that the Thunderclap will take place. Let's not stop now. The more people who sign up, the greater our reach, and the greater the chance we'll get the hashtag trending. Thank you, thank you, thank you. x
