What is The History Quill Book Club?

The History Quill Book Club is a new pilot project of The History Quill, launched in December 2019. Our aim is to help historical fiction readers discover books they will love, and in so doing, promote the works of historical fiction authors to an enthusiastic, engaged audience.

Readers sign up to our email list to get book suggestions that are tailored according to the preferences they indicate. We have five main subgenre categories: action/adventure, mystery/thriller, drama, romance, and historical fantasy.

The first and second phases of the pilot project concluded at the end of February 2020 and August 2020 respectively and produced promising results, with most authors receiving sales as a result of their promotions. We have now entered the third phase of the pilot, which will last until the end of September 2021. This phase will focus on growing our email list in preparation for formally launching the book club as a promotional service. Participation during phase three is completely free for authors.

We are currently closed for submissions, but we will open again in December. In the meantime, we recommend you join our email list below for updates.
