Mandy Jackson-Beverly

Andrew Chapman has worked in many aspects of publishing over the past 34 years, including as a trade-published and self-published author, owner of two publishing companies, editor, designer, consultant, and in various positions in the publishing divisions of companies. In addition, he has a Bachelor’s Degree in Publishing and Writing from George Mason University, earned with a 4.0 GPA. This eclectic background matched with formal education is one of the things that makes him unique in the field.

Over the years, Andrew has literally taught thousands of authors and aspiring authors through his professional speaking (300+ seminars in the U.S., U.K., and Australia), writing (including 1,000+ publishing answers on Quora), and as president of a large regional publishing association. In this latter role, he led Publishers & Writers of San Diego in 2003–2010 from a dozen members to a thriving organization with 150 paid members and nearly 500 supporters. In 2012, he launched the first website to feature ratings and reviews of “self-publishing companies” by the authors who have used them (SelfPubSmart.com, now inactive). In 2015, he transformed his company July Publishing Inc. (started in 2000) into Social Motion Publishing.
