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.

Authors, if you query Kensington and receive a full request, I warn you not to get too excited.

My experience with both WENDY McCURDY and ELIZABETH MAY: If either of these editors request your manuscript, you will never hear from them again. They will ignore any polite follow-ups.

Maybe editors at Kensington simply enjoy a free read at hardworking authors' expense.Unfortunate, but true. I am merely reporting my experience. Their unprofessional behavior leads me to wonder whether they gather manuscripts and use them for their own gain.

I worked with Assistant Editor James Abbate. He was quick to respond and was very kind in his personalized rejection letter.
