Welcome to In The Empty Places, a book of short stories and art to raise funds for the Bantuan Coffee Foundation.

In The Empty Places will be formally launched in December 2014. As the launch comes closer, you will be able to find exclusive excerpts, author biographies, and much more filling up this website.

In The Empty Places contains stories from authors around the world. Many of these stories are being published for the first time, and many are also in translation for the first time. All the authors have generously donated their time and considerable talent to the this project for free, and we are heavily indebted to them.

Every copy of the book sold, whether hard-copy or e-book, raises money to help the victims of child prostitution in Indonesia. The Bantuan Coffee Foundation provides scholarships, safe-houses, skill development and counseling to help children to escape child prostitution.
