A PRE-Published Author?

I recently got a Facebook invite from a name I didn't recognize.  Since I'm always on the lookout for spammers, I popped over to her  FB profile to check it out.  She says she's a "pre-published author".  It's a new term that's been getting a lot of air play these past few months.  I've always assumed it meant she'd gotten a book contracted (usually her first), and she was in that no man's land waiting period that preceeds its release.  At least, that's what I always thought it meant.  Well, not in this case.  She's WORKING on a novel, but she intends to become published.

Whatever happened to "one day I hope to become a published author"?
