I tried emailing them at least 3 times to let them know that the old version of the book was completely outdated, but there was no way to get through. (This manuscript got a R&R from another publisher and is going through an extensive revision). I emailed them back recommending they put some kind of contact email on their submissions form for situations like this!

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.
