Call for Submissions

Kensington Publishing



Please tell editors/publishers you read their guidelines on the
Erotica Readers & Writers Association Website

Submission Guidelines

Kensington Publishing
www.kensingtonbooks.com/page.aspx/submissions

Kensington is the largest family-owned publisher in New York. Adam Zacharias is the third generation of the Zacharias family to work at Kensington. They are large enough to have best-sellers on the NYT and USA Today list every week, but small enough that everyone knows the authors. They publish all genres of fiction in all formats — hard, soft, mass-market and trade paper and digital.  

The company was founded in 1974 and they have been publishing romance since the 1970s. They publish all kinds of romance — contemporary, historical, paranormal, romantic suspense, erotica, gay and lesbian, African American and women’s fiction.

Kensington does promotion for every title, including a lot of online promotion through Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. They also do print ads, advanced review copies, book trailers, contests, blog tours and many other types of promotion.

SUBMIT TO ONE EDITOR ONLY VIA EMAIL. From the list of editors and their areas of interest below, determine which editor would be best suited to or most interested in the type of book you are proposing. Address the submission to that editor’s attention. If an editor passes, it’s a pass for Kensington; do not re-query or re-submit to another editor.

Please send a QUERY ONLY in the body of the email.

Do not attach manuscripts or proposals to e-mail queries.

An editor will respond if he or she is interested in seeing your material based on your query. Due to the volume of submissions, editors may only respond to projects they wish to further consider. 

Requested manuscripts should be Word documents unless otherwise specified, typed in 12-point font, double-spaced, and paginated. Include title and author in file name.

IF YOU DO NOT HEAR BACK ON YOUR QUERY, IT MEANS THAT YOUR PROJECT DOESN’T FIT OUR CURRENT EDITORIAL NEEDS.
