The Only Hybrid Platform with Guaranteed Bookstore Placement
DartFrog Plus is a premier hybrid publishing platform for authors who have a bookstore quality manuscript. Manuscripts are selected for publication, just like in traditional publishing. The costs of production are invested upfront, by authors, just like in self-publishing. All manuscripts selected by DartFrog Plus are guaranteed to be placed face-front in 40 bookstores that carry DartFrog titles. This access to guaranteed bookstore placement sets DartFrog Plus apart from all other hybrid publishing platforms.
The Details & Benefits of DartFrog Plus
Submitting Your Manuscript
Submitting a manuscript to DartFrog Plus is free. Manuscripts selected for publication will receive full publishing services and guaranteed bookstore distribution to 40 bookstores that carry DartFrog titles (rather than a sampling of 20 stores, as offered through our self-pub distribution program).
If a manuscript requires additional work, we are happy to refer it to one of our partners (depending on the genre of the manuscript) who can walk you through the process of improving or correcting the manuscript to be ready for publication. Authors are free to re-submit an improved manuscript to DartFrog Plus, or self-publish elsewhere and submit through our self-pub distribution program.
Financial Benefits of DartFrog Plus
Authors earn 75% royalty from all sales via the DartFrog website. DartFrog takes zero commission from bookstore sales.
