What is your policy regarding simultaneous submissions?

Duplicate SubmissionsBarking Rain Press requires an exclusive evaluation period; we do NOT accept submissions that have been submitted to other publishers during our evaluation period. Barking Rain Press strives to reply within six weeks to a query or submission, which is a common courtesy we extend to every author in recognition of their desire to secure a publishing contract.

It is a waste of valuable time to read and evaluate a submission, only to hear, “Thank you, but I have already signed with another publisher.” Therefore, if this should happen, please understand that Barking Rain Press will be unable to consider any future manuscripts you may wish to submit.
