indie vs traditional vs house vs hybrid

Stanford University is doing a survey to track publishing trends for indie, house, and hybrid authors. That’s awesome.

Less awesome is the fact that they are (in ignorance rather than malice) still using the term “traditional” to describe house publishing.

If you are invited to complete this survey and feel so inclined, please consider politely reminding Stanford in the comments section that the term traditional is no longer preferred.

Indie and hybrid authors are no longer “non-traditional”. We are mainstream.

House publishers are no longer the standard. They are another option and a great one for many authors. But let’s use terms that properly describe and afford equal dignity to all – indie, house, and hybrid. Thanks. 🙂
