When Can You Call Yourself a Writer?

When Can You Call Yourself a Writer?

Somewhere along the journey to adulthood, I lost that early confidence. Writing became a chore, not a joy, and when a teacher in high school bled all over one of my darlings with a red pen, the words “you have no style” became the nail in the coffin of my writing. I went on to become an English major in college, but I took as few writing courses as the syllabus would let me get away with. A chore became a sentence.

Hello Again

2020 has been some year. Here at DartFrog, we’ve been thinking a lot about our network of independent bookstores and how “Safer at Home” is impacting them, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to address the protests that continue to rock our nation in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.

What Does Book Distribution Mean (and are any Self-Publishing Services Really Offering it)?

What Does Book Distribution Mean (and are any Self-Publishing Services Really Offering it)?

Many self-publishing services offer “distribution” to bookstores. But that doesn’t mean your book will be in stores. It means your book will be on a list that stores could order from if they wanted to. Dartfrog is different. We don’t “distribute” to a list. We place books into actual brick and mortar stores.
