Being an Author with AQS

Thankfully, there is more than one correct way to make a quilt and to write the how-to instructions. This has given rise to several major quilt book publishers, and AQS is proud to be among the leaders.

If you're considering authoring a quilt book, this is what you can expect from AQS:
  • Clear, succinct proposal and manuscript guidelines
  • A fast consideration of your proposal
  • Transparency in the publication process
  • Generous contract terms
  • A close working relationship with editorial staff and individual attention
  • Retention of your author's voice; no cookie-cutter books here
  • Regular contact and communication, from concept through post-publication
  • Offers to teach at AQS shows once you're published
  • The opportunity to tape online classes that provide college credit for students
  • Expansive marketing and advertising efforts and assistance, wholesale and retail
  • Friendly support and advice every step of the way
We offer a lecture at every AQS show that details what it is like to be published by us. If you're considering writing a how-to quilt book, treat yourself to the facts and join us in Knoxville, July 22-25, for "Writing a Quilt Book: The Reality Show," or Des Moines, October 28-31, for "Putting Pen to Paper: Publishing with AQS."
