Down Days

Filled with pop culture references and dark humour, Down Days is an essential read whether you live with mental health issues or love someone who does.

Blue Tide Rising

When Amy Blue wakes to find a stranger in her bedroom, she’s not particularly alarmed. This is beautiful, calm, androgynous Jay, who listens to her story and appears to want to help, with no hidden agenda.

Claiming One

The distinct characters in Claiming One are both incredibly loving and tragically flawed: far from finding anything, and an even longer way from peace. Yet, E.J. Runyon masterfully intertwines a trail of hope, found in the hearts of the characters, to string these tales together.

Shattered Echo

Re-emerging into a world where she must hide her supernatural talents, Echo begins a career as an investigative reporter. Fearing persecution—and worse— because of her paranormal abilities, she quickly learns she must keep everyone at arm’s length

Becoming Someone

An administrator is forced into early retirement; a busy doctor needs a break. A girl discovers her sexuality; an older man explores a new direction for his. Thought-provoking, playful and poignant, these 42 short stories address identity from different angles.

Inspired Quill is an independent UK publishing house striving to set new industry standards.

Creating A New Generation of Diverse Literature: Find Yourself in Our Pages

Inspired Quill is a traditional, indie press setting new standards for how publishers should work – eco-friendly, people-orientated and focused on inclusive, quality publishing.

We’ve been a social enterprise since our inception in 2011, which means that we’re always thinking of ways to give back to our communities. This includes pledging profit percentages to charity, running subsidised workshops and mentoring schemes, and donating books to those who may not otherwise have access to them.

Although we’re a small publisher based in the UK, our amazing authors and team live across the entire globe, and we attend plenty of international events, too.

If you’re looking to get published in a supportive, professional environment which aims to meet your personal and creative needs without treating you like a meal ticket, OR if you’re an avid reader looking for something new, exciting, and blazing a trail away from the fads and fashions of mainstream media houses, IQ is the place for you!

So sit back with your favourite beverage, grab your nearest paperback or ebook (we love both!) and delve into the worlds created by the amazing minds here at Inspired Quill.

Perspectives on Identity in Short Stories

I often get to the end of a novel and think Now I know where it’s going, I’d love to read it again. But, as a book blogger reading around 150 contemporary novels a year, I rarely do. But short stories are different. There’s always time to reread those we particularly...
