What's in a name? (Indie, self-published, and traditional)

Details here.
The other day I saw a review that referred to the author as being traditionally published. Whenever I see this—be it from a reviewer, author, marketer, publisher, or just about anyone—I take a second to investigate, to see if I agree with them. In most cases I simply do not.

There's a lot of confusion over indie vs. traditional, indie vs. self-published, and the like. These terms are used loosely, which makes it difficult to know what's going on. Comparisons are made and reviews are written, leaving potential readers in the dark. Because there is little consistency.

The general consensus is murky at best, but it doesn't have to be this way. There is a simple way to define these terms that would eliminate all confusion.

Thanks to our visitors for these wonderful stats!

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.
Hello! My name is Millie and I am a lover of YA fiction and blogger from Book Bird Fiction. I have always loved books but got into reading seriously in about 2012 after discovering Booktube. I haven't been quite as brave to start a Booktube channel but in January 2013 made the best decision of my life to start my blog. I am a lover of animals as well as books (hence the inspiration for the blog name) and interested in science. I dream of becoming a doctor with a writing career on the side (you can never do too much).

Why Does Dystopia Create Such Dizzying Pleasure? Reposted from @Jordansmith9000

Details here.
There's something about dystopia isn't there? Something that is so interesting to experience when you realize how different the world you're reading about is from your own.

As I've posted about before, so much of dystopian fiction is incredibly, sadly negative. Yet even in dystopian stories with a strongly negative quality I often find myself enjoying being wrapped up in the character's world.

What is it that makes dystopia so captivating? I think I have some ideas as to why.

One thing about dystopia that is enjoyable is the shock value of it, the jolt of surprise when you see how much differently things could be done in the future. Often it's things being done in a way you might not like, but it can set your mind swimming.
