What's your definition of the term 'Indie publishing'?


I'm preparing for a multi-author panel/Q&A at East Brunswick library tomorrow night. One of the topics I'm sure will come up is the use/misuse of the term 'indie publishing'. I thought it would be interesting to conduct a straw poll to find out what the general consensus is about its meaning.

If you've got a minute, I'd appreciate your input.

Poll #1729654 What is 'Indie Publishing?

If someone told you their book was available from an 'Indie publisher', what would you assume?

They were published in the traditional way by a small publishing house (ie: they didn't pay any money to get published)
58(70.7%)
They were self-published
18(22.0%)
Something else, which I'll explain in the comments
6(7.3%)


I'm not looking to discover the 'correct' answer - truth be told I don't think there is one (at least, not anymore), I'm just trying to get a feel for what people immediately think of when they hear the term now.

Many thanks in advance
