Author Academy

The Story:

We specialise in helping authors achieve their dream of becoming a published author!

We understand that the process of getting your book published can be quite overwhelming and we are here to make it as simple and as easy as we can for you.

You can be assured that we complete all the work here in Australia and that the quality of our work is of a very high standard. Our authors deserve nothing less!

We have teamed up with an extraordinary printer right here in Australia that offers very competitive prices and high standards just like us.

If you are ready to get your book published, please contact us and let us know how we can help you achieve your dreams.

We look forward to bringing your book to life!

Finding the right publisher

Writing your book is one thing, getting it published by the right person is another! We hear many stories of people that have had a terrible experience with publishers and then get too scared to do anything with their amazing story. Does this sound familiar?

Why we can help

We believe in supporting fellow Australians and providing quality with all that we offer. We are Australian owned and operated. All work is done here in Australia and none of our work is outsourced overseas.

Over the years we have had our own experiences with work completed overseas, the results were not what we were expecting and did not stand up to our high standards...so we decided to change that!

Proofreading & Editing

Proofreading is the process of reviewing the final draft of a piece of writing to ensure consistency and accuracy in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting.

Manuscript Assessment

This service is to help authors get professional guidance on their manuscript. We provide recommendations on how you can improve your (if of course it is required!) manuscript.

Book Formatting

This process is where your document gets formatted ready for print, by adding margins, trim and bleed, page numbers, design layout, headers, footers, table of contents, copyright page etc.

We want to make a difference!

Writing your book is hard enough! Here at the Author Academy we want to make a difference by guiding you step by step through the whole process of publishing.

WOW! The Author Academy made the process of publishing my book so easy. They helped with every step along the way, and I am so grateful for their help, I couldn't have done it with them!

Sue Kennedy Author Academy

Sue Kennedy

Like you, author coach and business expert Sue Kennedy has seen the word ‘writer’ defined numerous ways over the years. Is it writer or author? Is it both? What is the difference? Is it a device that writes data to a storage medium? Or, is it meant only for the chosen few who can write fluently?

With over three decades of author coaching, speaking, and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches business experience, her view is radically different. Sue appreciates, and shares with listeners, that writing your story is a journey that allows you to access your untapped, forgotten, or ignored passions and energies that will get you moving. Everyone has a book inside of them. It’s how we share our story that counts.

Sue, sometimes referred to as the “People Whisperer” for her coaching skill that brings out the best in people, is known for her practical, street-savvy style; Sue’s fusion of real-life stories and her conversational techniques connect with her audience at an intimate, intense and individual level.

With her signature masterclasses, Sue provides her clients with strategic, creative, and surprisingly fun techniques to express their hidden genius and tap into the full extent of who they are and what they can become.

Her successes include the collaboration with Louis Reed where they have joined together to create a safe and sacred place where people come to write their stories and become published authors. The masterclasses are fully booked each term and sold out 12 months in advance.

Alongside being an author coach & publishing house, Sue has been on many local not for profit organisations as a senior executive member, helping the local community with her many talents and skills. Her current project is one that she feels very passionate about and knows that it will have a huge impact on the local community as well as globally. Stay tuned as it will be rolled out later this year!

What philanthropic initiatives do you take part in? Through our self publishing initiative, each profit-writing masterclass is tied to a non-profit partner who supports women. That means social change is baked into our business model. When you invest in yourself through our writing products and masterclass, you’re also investing in helping make the world a better place.

Sue Kennedy founded her company on the core belief that everyone has a book in them.

For all aspiring writers, entrepreneurs and executives who want to become world class, best-selling, award-winning authors to meet, connect, brainstorm, create and bring their ideas into the world, Sue hosts various masterclasses that will help you no matter where you are on your writing journey.
