Fair Winds Press: Now Accepting Book Proposals

Fair Winds Press is now an imprint of Quarto publishing, which we’ve reviewed here.

Fair Winds Press was originally founded in 2001 as part of the Rockport Publishing Group. Fair Winds focuses on providing readers with authoritative and accessible information that helps them live “a healthier life, both physically and spiritually.” This sounds specific but actually covers a wide range of topics including but not limited to triathlon training, eliminating meat from your diet, gentle parenting, and witchcraft.

You can get a good feel for what they publish here.

Their covers seem excellent and market appropriate. Their distribution is good.

They have recently added a mandatory submission agreement, that you can see here, that some writers find alarming. It is certainly more formal than any disclaimer I’ve encountered before, but the contents itself are very similar. Please read it carefully before submitting.

You can see their imprint page here. Their submission guidelines are now listed with the rest of Quarto Publishing’s guidelines here.

Emily Harstone is the author of many popular books, including The Authors Publish Guide to Manuscript SubmissionsSubmit, Publish, Repeat, and The 2021 Guide to Manuscript Publishers.

She regularly teaches three acclaimed courses on writing and publishing at The Writer’s Workshop at Authors Publish. You can follow her on Facebook here.
