Welcome to The Fiction Factory - a blog that Ben's being writing on the side since he was a lot younger and a lot prettier. The Factory is smorgasbord of blogs and videos about Ben's progress as an indie author, his research and creative processes, news about new books, self-publishing advice, and whatever else he stumbles across on the internet – usually cat gifs.
