What Barking Rain Press Publishes
Barking Rain Press publishes complete novels or novellas of at least 20,000 words to sell through the BRP website and other partner sites in print and eBook formats. We will also consider the following:
- Short story collections (anthologies) with a strong central theme, written by a single author.
- Reprints of previously published works that are out-of-print, so long as the author owns BOTH the worldwide electronic rights and print rights.
While we are open to a variety of literary genres, we are NOT open to submissions containing the following subject matter. These submissions will be automatically rejected:
- A single short story, a single piece of short fiction,or a single work of flash fiction
- Children’s books
- NC-17 / X-Rated / Pornographic fiction
- Self-published works that are currently available for sale anywhere. If the work(s) are no longer for sale, and you own worldwide print and electronic rights, they may be submitted for consideration. Keep in mind that if a work can be found for sale or free download through a search engine search, the submission will be rejected outright. Make sure that the work is completely unavailable BEFORE you submit it.
Since Barking Rain Press will produce relatively few titles each year (12-14 works), our books reflect the individual tastes of our small staff. BR looks for writing that inspires and/or entertains the reader with a unique voice.
