Sorry if a thread for them already exists. I couldn't find one when I searched the site. All I saw was reference to a Times competition.

Has anybody got experience being published by Chicken House? Their timescale from submission to acquisition/rejection? All I know is that they published J.K. Rowling and have a great reputation in the UK. They ran a Twitter contest a few weeks ago and 'liked' my pitch. I did the necessary and sent them what they wanted. The didn't mind if the novel was unfinished, or fully polished. They asked for the book 'so far'. Fingers crossed...

England, for now.
They're legit and seem awesome. They publish a friend of mine and she seems to really like them. They also publish Kiran Millwood Hargrave and and her book (The Girl of Ink and Stars) has absolutely cleaned up in terms of awards.
