What is the difference between “indie” books” and “self-published” books?

The term self-published means the author writes the book, as well as distributes the book This used to be known as “vanity” publishing. The term “indie” publishing means a book that has been published by a small independent company, other than the “Big Six” publishing companies in New York. Recently, the two terms have become almost interchangeable because indie authors are now referring to themselves as “self-published”.

Why does Indie House Books promote indie authors?

We feel that indie authors get less exposure than mainstream authors whose books are promoted by the big publishing companies. Indie books are generally just as good, if not better than the books being promoted by the big guys. We feel that indie authors deserve every opportunity to get their work noticed by readers who love to read.  Our mission is to provide that opportunity to indie authors while enlightening readers  to their existence.
