I submitted recently. If they refer me to Blurb, I'll provide an update. If I don't update this thread within the next six months, that means it was a silent rejection.

Is there anything new on Chronicle? I see from the thread that they were referring authors to a self-publisher, but that was years ago.

My agent, Kate Testerman, has submitted two of my manuscripts to them in the last year, and they politely passed on the first submission after about a month and a half. (We haven't heard back on the second, but it's only been a couple of weeks.) In other words, I haven't worked with them directly, but I can say that they publish one of my favorite authors, Beth Kephart. That counts for something in my book.

Hannah Moskowitz's new book is being published by Chronicle, and I'm seeing more and more of their books in book stores here. I'd be excited for my agent to submit my MS there.

For those of you that don't have an agent, you can still submit directly, only through postal though.
