Mar 28, 2017 — STOP PRESS. We have some very exciting news to share!!
Jess Taylor and I can finally reveal to you all that HOME FIRES WILL LIVE ON IN BOOK FORM. We had been sworn to secrecy but have now been given permission to be the first to share this wonderful news with you all.
Simon Block, the writer of Home Fires, has been extremely moved by the "Save Home Fires" campaign and, along with us all, felt completely gutted when the series was cancelled. He had some thoughts about how he could continue the stories he wasn't able to finish on ITV and found a wonderful publisher, Bonnier Zaffre, who were also big fans of the show and loved the idea of him continuing Home Fires in novel form rather than tv scripts.
There will be 3 books in the series and each book will be released in 4 parts, first in e book format and then the complete paperback.
Full details can be found here: http://www.savehomefires.com/books
We would like to thank each and every one of you for being a part of this campaign as without you all, this amazing new direction of the Home Fires story would never have happened. As far as we are aware, the move from tv to novel has not been done before, so it really is quite an achievement for us all.
Please share this fantastic news far and wide, using the #HomeFiresReturns.
I'm sure many of you, like us, will want to pre order copies of the first instalment so here is the direct link: http://bit.ly/HomeFiresReturns
I'm sure you'll agree that the brilliant women of Great Paxford would be very proud of what we have all achieved! It just shows what can happen when a community of people come together and stand up for something they believe in.
