So, is this e-books only?

lease send all queries to query@divertirpublishing.com. You can address the email to Ken Tupper, the Publisher. We currently only accept queries electronically.

How your email should look:

Name: Your name. Please include your full name in the query. Not including your full name makes it difficult to respond to the query.
Subject: Title, genre, word count (for example: Pride and Prune Juice, romance, 76k)
Body: Your query letter. Please note that queries will often be rejected based solely on the query letter, so it is important your query letter describe your manuscript in enough detail for us to determine if it would be of interest to us. Attach a synopsis and first three chapters of your manuscript in a Word or RTF document.

noranne, as weird as it may sound, you're lucky that you received a detailed rejection. I don't know what they wrote to you, but I imagine you must now have some idea as to how to improve your query letter to attract possible publishers/agents, or even how to improve your story.

I've received plenty of rejections, but what frustrates me is that they don't say why. I have no idea where I want wrong nor how to improve.

I wish you all luck!

EQ 6/12 For a #SFFpit fav. Sent synposis and 1st 3 chapters.
FR 6/23 My first full request ever!

Very detailed rejection 8/22. Invited to resubmit after revision.
06/29/2014 09:46 PM
Eeep! Full request after query from #SFFpit received (and sent) today!!!
06/23/2014 06:41 PM
Noranne - The reviewer really liked your first three chapters. Sent him the full today!
06/23/2014 01:29 PM
Congrats, noranne! That first full request is such an awesome feeling!

Still waiting to hear from my query, but it's good to know responses are starting to come in. Good luck and YAY!!!

EQ 6/14 Also got a favorite for SFFpit--good luck!
06/13/2014 02:55 PM
EQ: 06/13/14 after my pitch was favorited during #SFFpit on Twitter. Sent query letter, 1st three chapters, and synopsis per guidelines.

I know they're a relatively new, small publishing house. Does anyone have any other information about them other than what's on their website?

Good luck everyone!

It is a great thing to get a little feedback. I think I'll be focusing solely on the agent search once I've done more revisions.

Sounds like a good thing that you haven't yet heard back. Hope it's great news when you do! :)
05/07/2014 08:17 AM
Still haven't heard back from them. I guess that's a good thing?

LoraReedPalmer sorry about the rejection, but that's GREAT that they gave you feedback and are open to resubmitting. I love when they give you feedback!

Had an email from them waiting for me when I woke this morning with a couple great, specific points of feedback. The reviewer expressed a willingness to reread if I wished to resubmit.

I may just edit accordingly and take them up on it.

Still keeping fingers crossed for you, Circleslide!
04/29/2014 10:05 AM
Yes, it's been a month I have been keeping track of them on twitter. I don't really want to nudge.
04/25/2014 09:40 AM
Not yet. Keeping my fingers crossed for us both! I'm thinking we should hear something back soon either way since it's been about a month.
04/24/2014 05:21 PM
Yes, I still haven't heard back from them and I sent it in 3/26.

Always verify publisher's information before sending your query, and review the publisher's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

A publisher listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that publisher by QueryTracker.

Before contacting a publisher, authors should verify and assess the publisher's requirements and suitability by visiting the publisher's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad publishers. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
