Okay, since my last thread regarding Ben Galley was locked, through no fault of my own... Here's another discussion thread. Please be nice and don't let it get locked again!
Ben Galley is an English author, aged in his mid-20's, who has currently self-published two novels, (both of which are AWESOME!) and is currently preparing his two-part finale for a joint release in May. He's also preparing his first book, 'The Written', to become a graphic novel; at this time, he's just under £1000 away from his goal on KickStarter! He's also a self-publishing aficionado and consultant, whose consultancy business, 'Shelf-Help', aids prospective self-publishing authors to go for their goals and become the authors they dreamed of becoming. He's actually helped me a tonne! He's a good friend of mine, awesome dude in person, and just generally awesome!
His writing style is epic fantasy set in the fictional country of Emaneska, a land of dragons, wyrms, vampyres and lycans. The story of Emaneska centres around Farden, a powerful mage, and his troubles with Sirens and Daemons alike. His first two books, 'The Written' and 'Pale Kings', are already available and are simply amazing! I wholeheartedly recommend him to others interested in dark, slightly gruesome fantasy, with magical drugs, talking cats, lots of blood, and an entirely new look at badasses with magic tattoos. His works have been described as "'Lord of the Rings' meets 'Sin City'"!
Also, I used to use the word 'gritty' to describe it, but apparently that word wasn't as agreeable with other people... It's called an OPINION.
