Submissions

Thank you for your interest in The Quarto Group. Each of our imprints has its own editorial focus and fits into one of the categories below. Please take a moment to determine where your book best fits. Submitting to the category will send your idea to multiple imprints.

We will review your submission as soon as possible and will contact you if we would like to discuss it further.

Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to personally respond unless we are interested in pursuing the project. If you have not heard from us within three months of submitting your project, please assume we decided it was not the right fit for our publishing program.

By submitting to us, you acknowledge that we may currently be developing, or may plan to develop in the future, books based on similar internal ideas and/or based on previous submissions already in receipt that may be similar to your proposed idea or anything included in your submission.
