Submissions for Partnership Publishing

are now CLOSED!

Our publishing docket is full.


Winterwolf Press and Shadow Wolf Press are growing faster than we ever dreamed possible. This has inspired us to move away from the old model of traditional publishing to create an exciting new adventure in Partnership Publishing. 

We understand that creating your first quality novel is 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 to think about when producing a 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 this and more.

We believe Partnership Publishing is a WIN-WIN!

When signing with our press, we invite you to work side-by-side with our team of qualified professionals to produce your novel at a fraction of the cost it would take to do on your own. In other words, we offer affordable prices without hidden costs and make it possible for you to create the novel of your dreams. You will receive a realistic and detailed plan to assist you in getting your novel ready for publication. Additionally, you will be joining our pack and always have a team you can rely on to hold your hand and educate you about how the process works. Your novel will also be included in our catalog and marketing plans. As if that’s not enough, you will receive a publishing deal in which you keep a very high percentage of the proceeds!


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.
