Guaranteed quarterly stipend, paid for referrals, and helping to support Binc!
GET PAID FOR REFERRALS
Refer a self-published author who submits under the Full package, and earn a $35 referral fee. If you refer an author whose manuscript we decide to publish, we will pay you a $350 referral fee.
We pay your store a guaranteed quarterly stipend for participating in our Direct to Shelf Program.
FULL RETAIL PRICE OF FIRST COPY
We send your store one copy of each title. You keep the full retail price of that first copy when it sells. All subsequent orders/sales are at the normal discounted rates you have with Ingram. DartFrog takes no cut of sales.
HOW WE SELECT OUR BOOKS
Self-Published authors, authors published by small (traditional) publishers, and authors published by hybrids submit their books to DartFrog at no upfront cost. Our team of evaluators thoroughly examine each submission. Books that pass our evaluation criteria as bookstore quality books are accepted for distribution and placed in bookstores. For books that do not pass our evaluation standards, the author has the opportunity to buy a detailed evaluation in which we identify the changes that are required. DartFrog also publishes our own books through DartFrog Plus, which are placed into bookstores upon publication.
All DartFrog selected books are available for order directly through Ingram.
We make a donation to BINC for each submission received. So, when you refer self-published authors to DartFrog, you are helping to support BINC.
DartFrog now provides marketing opportunities to our authors that target readers who live within a certain mile radius of each partner bookstore. By carrying DartFrog titles, your store may benefit from this demographically focused marketing designed to lead people to your store.
