Penguin Accepting Unsolicited Manuscripts

For three months Penguin Books (United Kingdom) is accepting unsolicited manuscripts from writers. The three month period will last until the end of October 2010. If they like your book, they will publish it regardless of where you live.
 Email your synopsis and brief introductory note to before the end of October 2010.  
Go to the website for details, but here is a brief synopsis.  Thanks to Rick at IWW for this.
“We ask that email submissions comprise a brief covering note and synopsis andnot a full manuscripts. Please do not send attachments, please write out your cover note and synopsis in the body of the email. We remain unable to accept hard copy submissions and will not return or be responsible for the safety of any that we do receive, so please do not send any original or hard copy manuscripts to us. We will not contact you with feedback on your submission and will only enter into email correspondence with you if an editor within Penguin is keen to progress your idea.”
Good luck with your submissons!  I'm off to email mine.
