Greetings. Jeremy Tarcher Inc. and Perigee Books are both imprints of Penguin Publishing, but Tarcher and Perigee are listed as separate publishers in the 2007 Writer's Market Deluxe Edition. I would like to send a query letter to both of them. Both focus on my genre, and both share my vision on book projects, but they have different standards and guidelines. They appear to be different publishers. Does anyone know if it would be like submitting to the same exact publisher, or are they two entirely separate entities from Penguin?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'm going to move this to the Roundtable, Marina, I think you'll get more response there.

Welcome to the forums, by the way!

I believe that, yes, you can treat them as separate publishers.

Yes, Penguin has many smaller publishing imprints that operate independently. I would query them seperately.
