I wanted to share a very upsetting experience I had submitting a query letter to River's Bend Press in MN. I sent them a query about a book that I have written exploring a - yet to be reported aspect - of the Holocaust. I received my letter back with 'LOL' written in black bold marker across the page. I wanted to call the publisher to ask them about the behavior of their editor and when I attempted to find a phone number for this publisher I found that there was no record of them in MN. I proceeded to contact the Anti- Defamation League of Philadelphia and with their help wrote a letter to the publisher explaining how upset and offended I was at their unprofessional response to me. I sent the publisher a certified letter with a return signature card to be sure that they got it. I asked for an apology and for the publisher to deal with the editor who did this. I gave them a date to answer and never heard back from them. I have been successfully published for many years and have received many rejection letters, so having this project turned down is not the issue. Even though I am not Jewish, I cannot express in a blog how offened I am at this publishers behavior. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?
