Overview

I am an experienced self-publishing and marketing consultant, helping authors and companies from around the world to publish and sell books. For the last six years I have run a consultancy service that provides bespoke advice to authors over the phone or Skype.

Having published my own books, audiobooks, and graphic novels since 2010, I have tried and tested a number of self-publishing paths. In doing so, I have constructed a method of publishing that is affordable, professional, and driven by the technology now at an author’s fingertips. This method of publishing and marketing is what I now teache. I promote an entrepreneurial, business-like approach, empowering authors to make the most out of this promising new era of publishing, and make a living like I have.

I am able to provide advice on all aspects of independent publishing, including:
- the polishing process and getting your book ready for market
- ISBNs, front and back matter
- conversion to eBook and typesetting for paperback
- publishing ebooks and paperbacks on a global scale
- operating as a business
- crowdfunding
- seeking agents

I have also worked as a marketing consultant for a number of reputable companies and agencies. I can provide marketing strategy and advice on topics such as:
- building a mailing list
- social media
- websites
- blogging and content marketing
- merchandise
- getting reviews
- paid marketing

"Ben Galley is genuinely interested in passing on his knowledge and helping others to be successful... Thank you Ben.”
- Judi Williams, Great

"Just last year I attended an event in London run by a well-known publisher that cost £349 for 2 days. What Ben gave us in the first hour of his workshop was more usable than the information I garnered in 2 days at last summer’s event."
- Joanna Hunter, Innerpeace

"Along with the fountain of knowledge and the treasure trove of helpful advice that the affordable sessions have given me, I've also gained a great friend and mentor who I thank without end for his help in making my dreams of becoming a writer a reality."
- Reece Bridger, Fantasy Author
