Traditional, Independent, Vanity, Hybrid or Self Publishing?

Well, let’s talk about it.

I think some of the lines between these different modes of publishing are sometimes very blurred. How do you know which kind of publishing suits your needs?

Hybrid Publishing came up in a Writerly Group I follow on Facebook. I looked it up and one thing lead to another and of course I want to share my confusion and new-found knowledge with you.

A hybrid press or hybrid publisher is a publishing house that operates with a different revenue model than traditional publishing, while keeping the rest of the practices of publishing the same. The revenue source of a traditional publisher is through the sale of books (and other related materials) that they publish, while the revenue of hybrid publishers comes from both book sales and fees charged for the execution of their publishing services. To be a hybrid publisher, the longstanding standards and best practices that have been set by publishing industry must be upheld.

Join us in the Chat Room on Wednesday for a mini-topic chat.  

The website has been updated for security reasons and with the update a new theme appeared and of course, I began an interior design project. It is still The Writer’s Chatroom, it is a little more secure and the paint should be dry by the time of your arrival.
