    Exclamation [Publisher] Little Black Dress

    Anyone had any experience with Little Black Dress Books? They're based in the UK and an imprint of Headline.

    My agent sent my chick-lit MS and it looks like they're going to make an offer.

    Thanks!

    Does anyone know if I should send a query with my submission?

    They ask for a covering letter, not a query.

    Site is woefully out of date, blog is gone, and per last FB post (5/12), imprint is on hold. On the other hand, Headline is publishing a couple Kindle editions of older books next month, so it's only mostly dead.
