    So you are saying an author requires the validation of a publishing house, no matter how small to not be considered a vanity published author? I like the validation that comes from readers who enjoy an authors work.

    There are many websites that sort through the Indie books and list the best ones. One is Clean Reads and another is Goodreads. Let your fingers do the walking.

    By Indie do you mean self-published? It used to be that Indie meant published by an independent press, which was fine and I liked reading indie authors because it meant that you got innovative writing with an element of quality control. Now the term seems to have been appropriated by self-published authors who just swamp the market, so the good writing gets lost among the not so good stuff.

      The Indie publishers are rapidly improving the quality, contracting out editing, proofreading and covers. The need for the small independent press is growing smaller as authors realize they can keep more of their royalties and be in control of their success or failure.

        But that still confuses the matter of true indie publishers and vanity publishers which are different things.
