The cost to evaluate and place your book in bookstores is $475.

We offer authors a Limited and a Full option for submitting their self-published books. Both options include, at no additional cost to the author, a Book2Look biblet ($200 retail value). DartFrog invests in Book2Look to enable authors to effectively and professionally present their work, whether or not their book passes our evaluation.
