IBPA's Hybrid Publisher Criteria: One Year Later
In February 2018, the IBPA Advocacy Committee published a list of nine criteria defining what it means to be a professional hybrid publisher. IBPA's Hybrid Publisher Criteria requires that hybrid publishers behave just like traditional publishers in all respects, except when it comes to business model. Hybrid publishers use an author-subsidized business model, as opposed to financing all costs themselves, and in exchange return a higher-than-industry-standard share of sales proceeds to the author. In other words, a hybrid publisher makes income from a combination of publishing services and book sales.

What's happened in the just-over-a-year since IBPA's Hybrid Publisher Critieria was published? How has the indie publishing community and traditional publishing community reacted? And what's next in standard for setting initiatives within this fast-growing segment of the publishing industry? Join IBPA CEO Angela Bole and IBPA Board Chair Brooke Warner (Publisher, She Writes Press) for this open conversation aimed at answering these questions, and more.
