Welcome to the

Author Academy

As a book coach, I use my experience to empower & guide aspiring writers with a unique 5 step process that brings your book to life! 

What we do

Transform Your Life Story into a Published Book!

My 5-Step soulful writing process weaves together writing, art therapy, and intuitive coaching to manifest your book.

Hi, I'm Sue Kennedy, and I'm not just a Book Coach; I'm your guide on part of your soul's journey. Writing is not simply about words on paper; it's an opportunity to undertake a transformative experience.

My mission is to empower you to tell your story, tap into your inner wisdom, and make a meaningful impact by using my unique 5 step process developed over decades to bring your book to life.

My Story:

My journey into the realm of book coaching began with a deeply personal struggle – battling depression. Writing became my refuge and my path to healing. That initial book was the catalyst, leading me to follow my calling as a Book Coach. I've since transformed this personal experience to help others on their own healing journeys. To change people's lives by empowering them to write their stories. As your book coach, my process will build your confidence every step of the way by providing you a safe and supportive space where you can share without judgement.

What can writing a book do for you?

Personal realm

Writing a book often involves delving into your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. This process can lead to a deeper understanding of yourself and your personal growth.

It provides a space where you can express your thoughts, ideas, and creativity. Your book becomes a medium to share your unique perspective with the world. For many, writing is very therapeutic. It can help you process difficult experiences, traumas, or emotions and promote emotional healing and resilience.

Ask yourself these questions:

Do you feel a lack of fulfillment?

Do you feel unheard?

Do you worry that your story will be lost or forgotten once you are gone?

If you resonate with any of these questions, it’s time to do something about it!

I hear you say:

You don’t think you are a ‘real’ writer

You have a fear of vulnerability or judgement

You don’t have enough time to write a book

You are over whelmed by the whole process

Did you know that 97% of people who start to write a book never finish? Out of every 1000 people that start only 30 actually complete their work!

Don’t be one of these statistics, get the help of a book coach to guide you to the finish line!

Professional realm

Your book is a lasting legacy. It's a way to pass your experience and insights onto future generations. To inspire others and leave an enduring mark on the world.

Writing a book showcases your expertise on a particular subject. It positions you as a credible authority in your field. A book opens doors to speaking engagements and opportunities to share your knowledge.

Your book will connect you with like-minded individuals who resonate with your message, leading to meaningful relationships and greater experiences. It allows you to make a positive impact on your readers. Your words can inspire, educate, entertain, and, in some cases, even change lives.

Ask yourself these questions:

Are busy running your business and don’t have time to do this on your own?

Do you fear that readers won’t find value in your ideas or story?

I hear you say:

You are unsure how to collate all your expertise into a book

You are overwhelmed by the writing and publishing process

As your book coach, this is exactly my expertise to help you overcome these fears and guide you to the finish line!

Accomplish Your Dreams

Completing a book is a significant accomplishment. It will boost your self-esteem and provide a sense of purpose and achievement.

Writing is a wonderful creative outlet that brings joy and satisfaction and contributes to your brand. It can set you apart from others in your field and strengthen your online presence.

Whatever genre you choose, writing a book is not just about words on paper. It's a transformative process that can enrich your life in multiple ways. From self-discovery to creating a lasting legacy and everything in between.

why we do it
