We do not accept queries from
We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
So why don't we accept simultaneous submissions? It's a time and money issue. We
dont want to spend precious time and effort reading a manuscript, spending hours on
cover design and formatting, checking or even clearing our publishing schedule, and
sending it to another editor for a second opinion, just to find out that the author sold
the rights to the book the day before. Its annoying and frustrating, and it wastes
out time and energy.
If you are currently waiting on another publisher, or if another publisher is presently
considering your manuscript, please do the respectful thing and obtain an answer from the
other party first before submitting to Orr Books. The other possibility would be for the
author of the manuscript to withdraw their manuscript voluntarily from consideration with
any competing publisher.
