Grave Purposes

“Adventure, comedy, fiendish machines, dire plots and desperate heroism, Grave Purpose comes with a charming side-order of subverting the action tropes. An excellent read.” ∗∗∗∗∗

Creating a New Generation of Diverse Books: 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 quality, inclusive 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 diverse worlds created by the amazing minds here at Inspired Quill.

Give Back Every Time You Buy

Inspired Quill is a (non-profit) social enterprise, which means that we reinvest our profits back into IQ and local communities. Every time you buy one of our inclusive fiction (or non-fiction!) books, you’re helping us to help others.

We’ve just partnered with  Derbyshire LGBT+ to get books in the hands of folks who may otherwise not have access to diverse reading in a safe environment. So for every 10 books we sell through our site (including ebooks!), we’re donating 1 paperback to them.
