A “self-published’ book is just that: a book that someone creates on their own, and then throws it up on Amazon. There are hundreds of thousands of them. Often, they have typos, incorrect margins, and the interior formatting (the way the text looks inside the book) is off. The book’s cover is often poorly designed (aka a simple photograph, clipart and/or inappropriate fonts), and is typically created by someone without book design experience (such as the author, a friend or a relative). At best, self-published books don’t look as high quality as professionally published books. At worst, they look amateurish and unappealing to read–which in turn makes them very difficult to promote.
An “indie-published” book, on the other hand, is produced by publishing professionals so that it looks, feels and reads exactly like the high-quality books published by a traditional publishing house, but the author maintains full control of the process, timeline and product. That is what we do here at Books Fluent.
