Epiphany.jpeg

“Somehow, his hapless sister had begun a rumour that he was romantically attached to the penniless young woman, from an unheard-of and vulgar family, with whom duty and good sense forbade him from ever considering an alliance…but whose extraordinary wit and captivating eyes he had been entirely unable to banish from his thoughts.”

 

HAVING RETURNED TO LONDON in December 1811, Mr Darcy is appalled to learn that Anne de Bourgh, his  vexatious spinster cousin, has embarked on a journey to Hertfordshire to visit Miss Elizabeth Bennet. From her correspondence with his sister, Georgiana Darcy, he learns that Anne intends to rid Miss Elizabeth of any false hopes she may have of marrying him. His dismay quickly turns into alarm when Anne begins to insert herself into Hertfordshire society, even attending balls with the dastardly George Wickham.

 

ELIZABETH BENNET FINDS HERSELF INTRIGUED by Miss Anne de Bourgh. After all, what sort of lady could ever meet the standards of the proud and fastidious Mr Darcy? She soon comes to realise, however, that her understanding of their supposed engagement—and indeed of Mr Darcy himself—is distinctly flawed. 

AS THE COLD DAYS OF DECEMBER bleed into the new year, epiphanies abound for Elizabeth, Darcy, and even Anne, laying bare the machinations and desires of all those around them.

It is an inauspicious beginning, an engagement neither desires, driven to by the machinations of others. Yet what begins as a forced alliance soon changes into something quite different. Will it be enough to lead them into love?

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 submissions@quillsandquartos.com. Please submit it in Word doc/docx form, double-spaced in 12-pt. Times Roman.  Stories of 30,000-40,000 words (novella) and 90,000-140,000 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.

***

Q&Q does not publish erotica. Sexual content is fine as long as the story will stand on its own without it. Sexual scenarios must be consensual.

***

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. If we are to publish your story, all online versions must be taken down when the contract is signed.

 

Submissions will be read by our editorial panel, and we'll be in touch within a few weeks with our publishing decision.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Please reach out with any questions about Q&Q, our books, or the submission process.
