INITIAL SUBMISSION The initial submission requires $0 upfront cost. Simply fill out our form and send us your book. If not selected, you owe nothing. If selected, the placement fee is $475, which includes automatic face front placement in DartFrog's own specially marked section in 20 independent bookstores.
OPTIONAL EVALUATION If your book is not selected, you can request a detailed written evaluation, in which we explain why your book was not selected and what the exact issues are that need improvement. The cost for an evaluation is $225, but if an author makes the suggested revisions and the book is selected upon resubmission, we will take 30% (almost the entire cost of the evaluation) off the $475 placement fee.
All self-published books selected by DartFrog are also eligible to be considered for direct promotion to 3200+ book clubs through DartFrog's exclusive partnership with BookClubz.com. We select three books per month to be featured on the BookClubz.com website (and included in an email to all BookClubz.com members).
