Our Story

We are a small press dedicated to publishing works that inspire our readers to remember the truth of who they truly are. We have two divisions of our press:

Winterwolf Press aims to promote peace, joy, magic, and positivity in society’s creative consciousness and to be a counter voice against the all-too-common dystopian themes that run rampant in today’s entertainment. Winterwolf Press focuses on self-help and spiritual themes as well as children’s, middle-grade, and young adult genres.

Shadow Wolf Press publishes works that excite the imagination and entice the mind to think outside of the proverbial box. We are not afraid of the dark, nor are we afraid to explore “taboo” subjects. At Shadow Wolf Press, we explore the shadows in order to usher our audiences into places where they can more fully understand themselves and our world. We shine the light into the darkness and cultivate ideas that create understanding, inspiration, and empowerment in our readers.

At Winterwolf Press and Shadow Wolf Press, we believe we have a responsibility to contribute to the world’s wellbeing by cultivating and sharing stories, works, and ideas that create inspiration and empowerment in our readers as well as offer vibrational frequencies that promote balance and awareness.

Not only do we focus on publishing memorable and extraordinary works, but also on helping authors realize their dreams. We know what it’s like to sail stormy seas of publishing, and we like to think we have a lifeboat that can rescue wandering authors from being trapped by the currents of confusion, inundation, and misdirection.

Our carefully selected and vetted staff of qualified professionals has over three decades of collective experience in the publishing industry, and we keep a keen eye out for additional experts to add to our team due to our ever-growing publishing needs. At Winterwolf Press and Shadow Wolf Press, we are not about invoking the “lone-wolf” mentality; we work together as an efficient and supportive team. When you decide to work with our press, you’re not just working with a company, you’re joining our pack.

Winterwolf Press and Shadow Wolf Press strive to build honest, nurturing, and transparent relationships with our authors, peers, and audiences.
