    Page Street Publishing

    http://www.pagestreetpublishing.com/

    I recently got an email from the editor of Page Street Publishing because I have a blog about YA publishers accepting unagented submissions that are advance paying publishers. They distribute through MacMillan. They have recently announced a YA fiction program so you can now submit your YA fiction.

    I think it's worth looking into.

    Well, I queried them on June 30 with a YA historical fantasy and just got a request for the full manuscript...so their response time is pretty respectable right now.

    That's awesome Marissa! Let us know how it goes.

    I queried them on the 21st of June. Haven't heard anything yet. At least it's not a rejection yet. lol Good to know they respond in a timely manner.

    Will do. I'm impressed by their distribution and the marketing effort they've put into their NF titles; if they maintain that with their new YA line, they could go far.

    I got a full request just now. I submitted back in June (which was a while ago, but better late then never right??)

    I was wondering what happened to your full Marissa and Elizabeth. If you have any updates, I would love to hear them.

    They have a new children's editor, Kristen Nobles. I sent a picture book on 3/24 and got an enthusiastic request for an R&R on 3/27.

    Lisa, that's lovely to hear, best of luck with them acquiring! Everyone else too, hope it's good news for you as well.
    Kristen was the Art Director for Candlewick (Walker book group) for many, many years. Candlewick themselves have always been generous with their replies to Illustrators submitting, just a great group. I'm certain she has taken that respect of the creators to her new position!
