Traditional or indie? Publishing models compared (chart)

A detailed comparison of traditional and indie publishing models - infographic by Erik Wecks

Erik Wecks, a bestselling sci-fi writer and Wired.com blogger, made an amazing chart that compares two publishing models: traditional and indie.

The latter one is analyzed in two phases: before and after the explosion of the internet.

The chart is extremely detailed – and that’s why it’s so valuable. Publishing models are compared in three major areas:

  • how does the model work
  • benefits for the author
  • benefits for the reader
