We Offer a Standard and a Premium Option

DartFrog Plus selects books for publication at four different times of the year: winter, spring, summer and fall. We are currently accepting submissions for our spring 2021 catalog, for which the deadline is January 1, 2021. We do not impose a word limit, though we find that most manuscripts - not all, but most - with more than 100,000 words need further editing to tighten the storyline before it is ready for publication. Evaluation of your manuscript is free and if selected for publication there is no obligation to accept. Click here to compare our hybrid and traditional publishing options.
