Our Story

Shadow Wolf Press publishes works that excite the imagination and entice the mind to think outside of the proverbial box. Like Winterwolf Press, we are dedicated to publishing works that promote wellness, balance, and harmony in society’s creative consciousness to contrast the dystopian narratives commonly found in our culture. We believe we have a responsibility to contribute to the world’s wellbeing by shining light into the darkness and by cultivating ideas that create understanding, inspiration, and empowerment in our readers. 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.

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 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 hiring a company, you’re joining our pack.

Shadow Wolf Press also strives to build honest and transparent relationships with our authors and audiences.
