  • Available on at least one of these platforms, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, Apple, and Kobo.
  • The discounted price must be below $2.99.

  • All Free Submissions require a minimum of 5 reviews & 4.0 stars on

Submission Recommendations

In addition, we will consider the following factors when reviewing submissions:

  • Attractive and professional-looking covers.
  • Reader reviews.

After promoting thousands of books, books with the following factors have consistently got the most downloads or purchases.

  • Attention-grabbing cover.
  • Attractive book title.
  • A book rating of 4-stars or higher.
  • Curiosity inducing description.
  • Professionally formatted book.
  • A heavily discounted price.

Terms of Service

Discounts should be active before 6 am Eastern Standard Time (EST) on the day of the Dango Books feature.

  • If your book is not discounted to your planned deal price at a particular retailer by 6 am EST on the scheduled promotion day, we will include links to only where the deal is available. We will let you know which retailers have been excluded, but we cannot grant refunds or reschedule your promotion.
  • If your book is not discounted to your planned deal price at any retailers by 6 am EST on the scheduled promotion day, we will not feature your book in our email or website. You will not receive a refund, and we are unfortunately unable to reschedule your promotion.

Scheduling & Payment:

  • Your book needs to be submitted to us at least 2 weeks before its planned promotion date. We can schedule up to 30 days in advance.
  • Payment is due upon notification of your book’s promotion date.

Reschedule a Dango Books Feature:

  • If you message us about rescheduling 7 days plus before your scheduled feature, we will try to find an alternate date pending availability base on the date you request.
  • If you message us about rescheduling less than 7 days before your feature, we cannot reschedule or refund you. However, you are welcome to resubmit for another date at least one month down the road.

Cancel a Dango Books Feature:

  • Please notify us at least 7 days before your scheduled promotion date to receive a full refund of your order.
  • If you cancel your promotion less than 7 days before the scheduled promotion date, we cannot guarantee a refund.

Price Changes:

  • Your book must remain discounted before 11:59 pm on the scheduled period. This policy is in place because when deals expire early, we receive negative feedback from subscribers who accidentally purchased the book for full price.
  • If a partner expires a deal early with us more than once, we will not continue working with them. Please inform us in advance if you need to adjust the end date.

Note: If you expect any potential issues with your promotion, do not wait. Contact us immediately so that we can help!
