Editorial Focus: 

At Homebound Publications we publish books written by soul-oriented individuals putting forth their works in an effort to restore depth, highlight truth, and improve the quality of living for their readers. As an independent publisher we strive to ensure, “that the mainstream is not the only stream.”® It is our intention at Homebound Publications to revive contemplative storytelling. In all our titles our intention is to introduce new perspectives that will directly aid mankind in the trials we face at present as a global village.

Tips From the Editor: 

So often in this age of commerce, entertainment supersedes growth; books of lesser integrity but higher marketability are chosen over those with much-needed truth but small audiences. Homebound focuses on the quality of the truth and insight present within an author’s writing before any other considerations. We seek books written by soul-oriented individuals putting forth their works in an effort to restore depth, highlight truth and improve the quality of living for their readers.
