Johnny 5:
So I was looking further into submitting direct to publishers, and wow, this really is a thing that is still an option in these modern times! I looked at DAW for example and sure enough, open to submissions.

My question though: does submitting one's manuscript direct to a publisher count as an exclusive submission, and will it thus prevent you from submitting to any other publishers until the "exclusive submission period" has lapsed? I.e. you can only target one publisher say every three months?

Odd John:
That is a very good question. I wish I knew the answer. Sorry!  :huh: :( :emb2:

From what I've read, yes if and only if the publisher specifically says the submission is exclusive. Some publishers, for example, only ask for exclusive if they request additional materials.
