What is Windtree Press?
Good people, of like minds and career goals, help each other to grow in their writing craft, to improve discoverability, to keep on top of the changing publishing landscape, and in cooperating to rise together.
We are an author publishing cooperative. This means that we are independent authors who have joined together and agree to publish under a single press name. We agree to quality products and production at every level. We agree to support each other in our careers.
Windtree Press was formed in 2011 to offer a solution for the indie author by providing a place where authors share their knowledge, help each other create better books, and pool resources to take advantage of the economies of scale in purchasing new technologies and seeking new marketing opportunities. We began with three members and are now at 24 members with over 290 titles across many genres. Our books are released in print and ebook, and many authors also have audiobooks available. Some authors also have books in translation.
We are open to increasing membership, but we are also selective in that we want to make sure that members:
- Continue to produce quality titles
- Have a real desire to continue to learn and share knowledge
- Support each other’s efforts and share new opportunities
As Windtree members live across time zones and in other countries, we use a closed Facebook Group for our discussions, sharing of knowledge and opportunities, and any decision-making we need to do regarding how the press is operating. Members sometimes offer webinars or training sessions around new technologies and marketing.
If you have an interest in joining this type of cooperative, please contact us and provide information about why you want to join, a link to your author website, what type of career you see for yourself, and any questions you may have.
