I've been in the same position a few times. Unless the parties want to "share" you
may be stuck. I've managed to arrange "sharing" twice - both times worked out OK.
You didn't mention how long these contracts run - three months, year, forever? That
makes a difference.

Try to negotiate part time with both. If not possible pick one and let the other go.
You may find the one you let go comes back around if you finish the first quickly
enough.
