Publisher info

"We are storytellers. We have fulfilled an integral role for the human race ever since there was a spoken language. Storytelling is time travel and teleportation; it is prophecy; it is philosophy; it is not just the elimination of barriers but the co-mingling of perceptions; storytelling allows us to emotionally, spiritually and intellectually suspend barriers and relearn our humanity."
– Mike Simpson, Publisher

Second Wind Publishing, LLC, is an independent press that produces quality novels by talented authors with readable, distinctive voices. Each author was chosen to be a part of the Second Wind family based on his or her ability to tell a wonderful story.

The developers of Second Wind researched the publishing industry, emerging technologies, and realized what they needed to do differently. Using this knowledge, they started a new publishing company. The Second Wind staff carefully selected over a dozen incredible writers the first year of operation and, although still small, the company adds more outstanding authors and books every month.
