A traditional, independent digital, print and audiobook publisher of romantic historical fiction and stories inspired by jane austen.
"If she did not have to be the obedient daughter and could not be the starry heroine of fashion, then who was she going to be?"
A regency romance in the style of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, this series will explore the emergence of the Mowbrey sisters as they leave their country upbringing behind and enter the exciting world of London society.
Marianne Mowbrey is a responsible country rector’s daughter who longs for the novelty and excitement she reads about in novels. When her crusty Aunt Harriet agrees to give her a Season in London, Marianne vows to dazzle the world, win a husband, and never go home again. But the Londoners who determine social success are inclined to pass over plain Marianne in favor of her beautiful, reckless younger sister.
In a world of ambition, fashion, flattery, and deceit, how can Marianne stay true to her real self—especially when she is not even sure what that real self is?

I am the daughter of a Duke!
Elizabeth Bennet could hardly credit the news when a letter sent to her father, from relations she did not know existed, informed them that untimely and unfortunate events would result in Mr Bennet inheriting the dukedom of Everard. In the blink of an eye, the Bennets' lives are transformed—Elizabeth and her four sisters are wealthy, titled, and the talk of the ton.
At Pemberley, Fitzwilliam Darcy is still stinging from Elizabeth's rejection of him at Hunsford when he learns the extraordinary news. She is now Lady Elizabeth, elevated in an extraordinary fashion and is soon to become the most sought-after lady of the season.
But Darcy’s heart still belongs to her, and he sets off for London determined to win her hand. But can he prove to her that he has changed, particularly when her entire life has just altered?

Quills & Quartos Publishing has one goal: to pair the best Austenesque and historical romance fiction with the best in editing and cover design to create a superlative reading experience. We are not a vanity press, imprint, or services-for-hire company, but a traditional royalty-paying publishing house, staffed with editors and designers, looking for stories people will want to read.
But we need authors to write those stories. Are you a writer who is interested in publishing your work? We would love to hear from you.
Email your manuscript, along with a synopsis of the story, a word count, and a short author bio to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit it in Word doc/docx form, double-spaced in 12-pt. Times Roman. Stories of 30,000-40,000 words (novella) and 90,000-150,000 words (novel) fit within our ideal parameters. Please do not include formatting such as headers or page numbers, but do include page breaks between new chapters.

If you submit work to us that has been posted online in any way, shape or form, please provide us with the link to that content as well as proof that you are in fact the author. Please indicate whether you have a co-author and provide us the details of your writing relationship. Submissions must be the original writing of the person who submitted the manuscript.
