Homebound Publications is an independent publisher based in Southeastern Connecticut created by author and Connecticut native L.M. Browning.
L.M. Browning [Leslie M.] grew up in a small fishing village in Connecticut. Browning is a award-winning author and wildlife artist. In 2010 she wrote a Pushcart Prize nominated contemplative poetry series.
In late 2011 she celebrated the release of her first full-length novel: The Nameless Man, which was co-authored by Marianne Browning. Browning is a Fellow with the League of Conservationist Writers. She is partner at Hiraeth Press—an independent publisher of ecological titles.
She is an Associate Editor of the bi-annual e-publication, Written River: A Journal of Eco-Poetics as well as Founder and Executive Editor of The Wayfarer: A Journal of Contemplative Literature.
It is the intention of those at Homebound Publications to revive contemplative storytelling and introduce a new mythology that will directly aid mankind in the trials we face at present. The stories humanity lives by give both context and perspective to our lives.
Some old stories, while well-known to the generations, no longer resonate with the heart of the modern man or address the dilemmas we currently face as individuals and as a global village. Homebound chooses titles that balance a reverence for the old wisdom; while at the same time presenting new perspectives by which to live.
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. We publish works based upon merit alone to ensure that "the mainstream is not the only stream."
We publish both e-books and paperbacks. In our endeavors we always try to be mindful of our impact upon the environment. Homebound holds a fervor for environmental conservation. Atop donating a percentage of our annual income to an Ecological Charity, we are ever-mindful of our “carbon footprint”.
Our books are printed on paper with chain of custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification. This ensures that, in every step of the process, from the tree to the reader’s hands, that the paper our books are printed on has come from sustainably managed forests.
Homebound Publications can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. We hope for the support of the New England community as we try to establish ourselves during this precarious financial times.
