Could anything be worse than to be trapped in a confined space with the woman you love?

Fitzwilliam Darcy knows his duty, and

it does not involve succumbing to his fascination for a dark-eyed beauty from

an unheard of family in Hertfordshire.

He has run away from her once already. Yet fate has a wicked sense of humour

and deals him a blow that not only

throws him back into her path but quite literally puts him at Elizabeth Bennet’s mercy. Stranded with her at a remote

inn and seriously hampered by injury, Darcy very quickly loses the battle to conquer his feelings, but can he win the war to make himself better understood without the ability to speak?

Thus begins an intense journey to love

and understanding that is at times harrowing, sometimes hilarious, and

at all times heartwarming.



The new novel from

Mistaken author Jessie Lewis

"The person, be it a gentleman or a lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."  


Quills & Quartos Publishing is the creation of Amy D’Orazio and Jan Ashton, authors and readers of Jane Austen variations.


We formed Quills & Quartos with one goal in mind: to pair the best stories, both new and classic, with the best in editing and cover design, for 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 books people will want to read.

But we need authors to write those stories. Are you a writer or potential author who is interested in publishing your work? We would love to hear from you! Our submission process and contact information is below. Further guidelines are on the Q&Q Submissions Page.

Quills & Quartos Publishing is accepting submissions of novellas and novels--ranging from 40,000 to 150,000 words in length--in the Jane Austen and historical romance genres.


Authors should email their manuscript, along with a detailed synopsis of the story, a word count, and a short biography, to submissions@quillsandquartos.com. Submissions will be read by our editorial panel, and we'll acknowledge receipt and provide our decision within four weeks.
