We're very happy to be working with Alex Higley, Mark Manner, Ed Meeks, and Michael Onofrey for books to be released in 2017. It's just the beginning: more writers yet to be signed for 2017---and of course 2018, 2019 and beyond.

Keep an eye out for our 2017 catalogue, likely by late spring/early summer. We'll let everyone know of course.

According to Publishers Weekly, sales of print books increased by 5.4 percent from 2014 to 2015. Adult fiction: a 2.1 percent increase year over year. This is the first time since 2010 "that unit sales in adult fiction rose year over year." Not bad.

Is the downhill slide in eBooks continuing? We haven't seen those numbers yet, but sales are presumed to be continuing to slow in growth. Some of that is due to people returning to real, physical books. Of course part of this may be the fact that eBooks are going up in price due to recent agreements between Amazon and the big 5 publishers.

While we continue to support eBooks at Tailwinds Press, we are all physical book readers here.

Amazon's supply/distribution/sales process for print on demand books published by an outside party is "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."

Kinda Sorta American Dream, by Steve Karas

Coming this December, Steve Karas' collection of short stories, "Kinda Sorta American Dream."


“With his timely debut collection, 'Kinda Sorta American Dream', Steve Karas announces himself as an exciting voice of immense breadth and literary talent. The masterful title story alone is worth the price of admission, but all of the fourteen stories here shimmer with compassion, intelligence, wit, and grace. From a social worker in a new high school to a Santa-in-training, a toy collector to a disaffected teen, Karas inhabits his wide array of characters with eerie accuracy. Filled with ache and longing, these keenly drawn portraits afford Karas a sharp look at the founding promise of our country, a bleak skewed shadow of its once bloated self, but not without a future of possibility or hope.” - Sara Lippmann, author of Doll Palace
