Welcome to Windmill Books, the online home of literary publishers William Heinemann, Hutchinson and, of course, Windmill.
This new website is looking to do something new and different from what you might expect from a publisher’s website. We want to give readers interesting, inspiring and exciting things to read every single day, using our huge base of authors to do so. What that means is exclusive interviews, videos, feature pieces and extracts from authors present, future and past.
We are fortunate as a publisher to have exceptional literary heritage, with some of the most significant authors ever first published by William Heinemann and Hutchinson. This, combined with the new and fresh Windmill imprint means we can not only give you something new to read, but also look in our archives for a classic author you may never have come across.
Windmill online is also a shared space. We want you readers and book lovers to get involved. If you have any ideas for features (maybe you want to write one yourself?) or feedback on our site, please do let us know. We intend for this to be more than just a publisher’s website. So you’ll see us and our contributors talking about books from other publishers, as we seek to convey the one thing we all have in common – a love of great books and great writing.
The launch version of Windmill we hope gives a flavor of what you can expect from us over the coming months. We’ll not just be telling you about new books and authors, but inviting discussion and contribution about books and literature. We hope you enjoy reading, watching and talking here and look forward to hearing from you.
