Founded in 2011, Homebound Publications is one of the premier independent publishers in the country with the intention to preserve contemplative storytelling. The editors publish introspective works of creative non–fiction, fiction, and poetry.

It is a small press with big ideas set on publishing substance over flash. The editors routinely work with authors who don’t fit neatly into the corporate publishing model, giving a voice to the countless independent thinkers currently neglected by the mainstream media.

A Letter from the Founder, L.M. Browning

I founded Homebound Publications to bring together a community of like-minded thinkers and see what the dialogue yielded. I didn’t have any sense of how big the press would grow or how widely our titles would be shared, I simply carved out a space in which others could speak and share those deep thoughts they’d pondered. I have always been an ardent believer in creative minds requiring a circle of fellows to push them. The discussion, the inspiration, the contemplation, and the community encourages the kind of boundary-pushing, ego destruction, and refinement of beliefs that bring about movements of change in the larger world. 

Representative Authors: 

We are seeking titles with special focus on spirituality, education, regional interest, history, personal growth, self-help, and ecological. (We have a soft spot for books about our native region of New England.) Authors representative of the work we seek would be: Barry Lopez, Joanna Macy, Gary Snyder, David Abram, Mary Oliver, Rainer Maria Rilke, Annie Dillard, David Whyte, Cheryl Strayed, Jack Kerouac, Walt Whitman, and Henry David Thoreau.
