Another new publishing path?
In this ever-changing world of becoming a published author, it seems there's never a shortage of new terminology to keep up on.
The newest craze is hybrid publishing. Okay, it's not really a new craze. It's actually just another term for a craze we've been talking about all along - anything that is not traditional publishing, or self-publishing.

Hybrid publishing is the umbrella term."

The hybrid publishing space is not for black-and-white thinkers.
