Publisher info

Beating Windward Press, established in 2011 by Matt Peters, is an independent publisher of novels, short story collections, and non-fiction by emerging authors. We produce 5 to 10 titles a year and our books reflect the individual tastes of our staff - mostly mainstream fiction with a literary edge. Beating Windward offers books with distinct voices and perspectives that we hope brings pleasure, knowledge, and entertainment to our readers.

We call Orlando, Florida home, but our hearts are wherever the written word reigns.
