About Us

MAROTTE noun. ma·​rotte | \ məˈrät\  A marotte is a prop stick or sceptre with a carved head on it, traditionally carried by jesters. The word is borrowed from the French, where it signifies either a fool’s (literal) “bauble”, or a fad/craze.

Marotte was set up in 2019, with the aim of publishing novels that were genuinely funny. We have recently expanded to include high-quality commercial fiction from other genres. When you see the jester’s hat you are guaranteed a fun, page-turning read!
