Is there a difference between a small press and an indie publisher? Or are they the same thing?
What defines a Small Press?
It all comes down to money
If you’re looking for a publisher, be aware of this shift in meaning: an indie publisher may be a self-publishing service. Check for hidden fees or subsidy requirements. Beyond that, look at what titles the press has published, where and how their books are sold, and if they’re selling. Visit their websites. Email their authors. Check around. Whether you intend to seek out a small press or self-publish, write well, plan ahead, and do whatever it takes to earn your book the respect it deserves!
