Winterwolf Press and Shadow Wolf Press are growing faster than we ever dreamed possible. This has inspired us to create an exciting new adventure in Partnership Publishing. 

Creating your quality novel can be difficult, time-consuming, and often comes with unexpected costs and pitfalls. Content editing, line editing, proofreading, cover design, and interior design are just a few things that go into producing a quality novel. Just when you think you can celebrate, you still need to consider marketing, distribution, acquiring your ISBN and LCCN, and a whole slew of things you never knew you needed. At Winterwolf Press and Shadow Wolf Press, we will team up with you to accomplish all of these tasks and more.

We believe Partnership Publishing is a WIN-WIN!

When signing with our press, we encourage you to participate in our training courses, work side-by-side with our team of qualified professionals to produce your novel, and be hands-on when launching and marketing your novel. In other words, you become a valuable member of our wolfpack!

We Don’t Just Publish Everyone

Just because we have moved to Partnership Publishing, it doesn’t mean that we will accept any and all novels to be published by Winterwolf Press and Shadow Wolf Press. We still have guidelines we follow. It does mean, however, that we will be able to accept and publish more books each year.

You see, we love books!

We especially gravitate toward fantasy, science fiction, and paranormal fiction stories. We also enjoy supernatural romance and stories with time travel.

For nonfiction, we look for works that will help our readers grow in their personal and spiritual development.

Think you’ve got a book we can’t resist?  We want to know! We welcome solicited and non-solicited works during open submissions periods throughout the year. Please read our submission guidelines below.

Please note: We only accept digital submissions. Do not send physical copies of your query letter or manuscript to us.
