Anyone have any recent information on this publisher? Sending my entire manuscript straight away to this company feels uncomfortable, especially as a minor. This is saddening to me because I've grown up on the Boxcar Children books.

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.
