Is Barking Rain Press a “vanity press” that charges authors to publish their books?

Barking Rain Press is not a vanity press, nor do we “hire out” our publishing services. Authors are not charged fees for submissions, editing, cover art, etc. We are a non-profit fiction publisher and our mission is to publish emerging and mid-career authors.

If you are offered a contract, we will assign your book to an editor for polishing and to one of our staff artists to create a cover. We will prepare the manuscript for print and eBook publication, secure the ISBNs and Library of Congress numbers, and publish the work through our network of print and eBook distributors, at no cost to you.
