Always verify publisher's information before sending your query. Verify the publisher's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the publisher is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for publisher information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the publisher's website.

Leave comments about your experiences with this publisher, or read what other authors have to say.

2/3: Submission per guidelines (adult speculative mystery, LGBT protagonist, 88K)
5/18: Nudge after their 90-day timeline passed (no response)
6/20: Emailed saying that I'm planning on submitting to other agencies (Bella Books desires non-simultaneous submissions)

They'd actually be a great fit for my protagonist and manuscript, given their catalogue, and I'd love to work with an indie publisher.
