My question this time is another naive one:
When you send a ms. or the synopsis / first three chapters or any ms. package out to a publisher, just how much do they frown upon you sending your package out to more than one company? Penguin is accepting email queries with a three-month wait period. TOR wants the synopsis / first three chapters with a four month wait period. I've got a few publishers in mind I'd like to try this time, but dang it all, it would be so much better if I could submit to more than one at a time.
Is that acceptable to publishers, or is there some kind of taboo against that?
Any help would be most appreciated.
