Is there a difference between self and independent publishing?
Today on The Segilola Salami Show, we discuss the different types of publishing. What are the different types and what are the differences between them? Does one have an advantage over the others? What is the difference between self and independent publishing? Listen on to hear what our guests think.
There are some freebies up for grabs, so listen to the end (and see below) to find out more details.
Guests on today’s show are: Sherry Meeks, Ethan Howard and Adam Sherman
To summarise, here’s what was covered:
There are so many terms in publishing that sound quite similar. From indie publishing, self publishing, vanity publishing, hybrid publishing, independent publishing to traditional publishing.
Before you decide on the type of publishing to go for, you need to establish what your goals are and have SMART Objectives set.
Traditional publishing gives you royalties in advance
With vanity publishing, you pay the publisher
You are classed as a publisher if you own the ISBN for your books, so you are an independent publisher
You are self published if you do not own the ISBN for your books
So the main difference between self and independent publishing is with regards to who is classed as the publisher of your book.

The Segilola Salami show is hosted by Segilola Salami who is also an author and a self publishing strategist. She provides one to one support to aspiring authors to help them self publish their own books and make a success of it. Her latest book is called Yetunde: An Ode to My Mother. Part of the proceeds from the sales of this book goes towards helping UK Charity Jigsaw4u.
The aim of the show is to be entertaining but educative as we see guests share their experience on self publishing in a virtual cafe.
