If you are just starting out in the publishing industry, you may have come across the term “indie author.” and wondered what the term means.
Now, we are here to answer that question. So, what is an indie author?
An indie author is a name used to refer to someone who has complete control over their work, from writing to editing to marketing and more.
To help you remember what indie authors actually are, you can think of them as INDEpendent authors.
And when we say they are independent, we mean it in the sense that they do not need to go through a traditional publishing house to get their work out there.
Instead, they can publish their work themselves, whether that be through a digital platform like Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing or CreateSpace, or print-on-demand services.
