Today’s lead editorial looks at our evolving publishing vocabulary. One of the questions raised is when does a self-publisher constitute a publishing company. So many self-publishers brand themselves as companies — for a variety of reasons, often to do with marketing — but if they just publish books written by themselves, does this qualify?
Personally, I believe that it takes a list comprising three authors to have the foundation of a publishing company.
Think about it this way: One is an individual. Two is a couple. Three…that’s a family. Or a company.
A family — and by extension, a publishing company — implies obligation and responsibility to someone other then oneself.
That is, to me at least, the definition of a company.
