Welcome Peter Senftleben, an editorial assistant at Kensington Publishing. He has been there for two years and is still not used to all of the paper cuts.
Tell us something about yourself and your house.
Kensington is one of the largest independent publishers of hardcover, trade, and mass market paperbacks. We release close to 600 titles a year through all of our imprints, and while we're known primarily for romance, we are also industry leaders in such areas as African American and Gay and Lesbian books. More information can be found at www.kensingtonbooks.com.
I started at Kensington in December 2006 as editorial assistant to the Editor in Chief, John Scognamiglio. Since then, I have co-edited some books and I have recently begun to acquire my own projects. My interests in fiction are pretty broad; I'm especially looking for urban fantasy, suspense/thrillers, mysteries, mainstream fiction, paranormal romance, erotica, and gay/lesbian fiction. When it comes to non-fiction, however, I only like pop culture, entertainment, and humor. If there are terrorists involved, it's most likely not something I would be interested in seeing.
