Am I a Self-published Author?

TGL2016WillItBeYourBook4WEBA self-published book, also know as an “indie” book, is one where the author retains the rights to the book. It is okay if a self-publishing service assisted you in the publishing process. If, however, a publishing house exchanged ownership of the copyright in exchange for royalties, this is not a self-published book. (Yes, getting royalties from, Createspace, and the like is fine because you still own the rights to your book.)
