on February 13, 2012

Kensington Books has two YA imprints which are open to submissions. Dafina Books and Kensington Teen. Editors are looking for YA paranormal (80,000-100,000 words), as well as YA contemporary, suspense and historical. Many of their books are published in series such as Mythos Academy in which Greek Mythology is used to structure the series world.

Queries ONLY are accepted by e-mail, and you should submit directly to the editor. Allow three months for a response.  They do not respond if not interested. Editor’s list of submission wants as well as their e-mail can be found on the Kensington submission webpage here.
