Write Your Book

So you want to write and publish a book?  Here at the Author Academy we want to make a difference by guiding you step by step through the whole process of your writing journey, making sure that it's fun all the way!

We hear so many horror stories of how people have been treated by different publishing companies. Unfortunately, they get burned in so many ways that they end up very disheartened and want to give up on their dream of becoming a published author!

That is such a shame because their story is a gift for the rest of us. We want to make sure that your story reaches the hearts and minds of the readers just waiting to read your story. That is why we want to make a difference!

Here at the Author Academy, we work with you and guide you through the whole process of getting your book written, published, printed and in your hands! At this stage of the process the heavy lifting is done by us, so you can relax and take a breath after all your hard work of writing the story.

We don’t take you on as a client and forget about you as many of these companies do. We are always available to discuss any concerns you may have and explain everything that is required to get your book finished.

Once your book has been written, proofread/edited, formatted, designed and a beautiful cover created we help you with the printing quote so that you get the best possible outcome.

Once you have your books in your hands we also have ways of helping you promote and sell your books. We have an online bookstore that gives a higher return on investment compared to other bookstores. We believe the author deserves the money for all their hard work. We also have training courses available to help you with marketing your book further afield.

If you are look for a company that will look after you every step of the way then you have found us. Please let us know how we can help you achieve your dream.

We are looking forward to bringing your book to life!

If you're ready to pen your first expert non-fiction book, you have two options:

  • Write it yourself
  • Hire someone to either write it with you, or write it for you

The first option is best if you're up for the time, work, and planning that goes into crafting a book. But you don't have to do it all on your own. You can still impart your unique experience, knowledge, and point of view, while also leveraging the skills of a more accomplished writer.

Writing Your Own Book

The main reason to write your own book is if you have a burning passion to do it yourself. You might feel that letting someone else help or handle parts of it would potentially mark your own voice and enthusiasm.

However, in this case, you can still seek the help of an editor. You can plan and write the book yourself, and then hire someone to go over it once it's finished and clean up any parts that need editing. The editor wouldn't make any major changes, but simply polish your existing work.


Writing a book is hard work and requires dedication and commitment. But it’s a skill you can learn. There’s a method to follow when structuring and writing a book that takes some of the pressure off, and that can alleviate any concerns you have about your writing skills.  Want to learn more about how you can Write Your Expert Book?

Hire a Co-Author

Another option is to write your book together with a professional writer. You often see biographies or memoirs written this way, where on the cover, it will say, "Written with…" In this case, you provide the basic structure and ideas, and the writer helps you shape your ideas into well-written prose.

How much you write and how much your co-author writes depends on your agreement. For example, you could send them your writing and have them clean it up, like an editor who edits in real-time. Or, you could have regular meetings or Skype/Zoom calls with the writer to explain your ideas, and have them do the actual writing.

No matter how you write it, the end result is a book full of your ideas but with the sheen of a professional writer.

Hire a Ghostwriter

If you don't want to be so involved with the actual writing process, you can hire a ghostwriter. Again, the extent to which you write or the ghostwriter writes is determined by you. You could give them an idea of what each chapter should cover, some notes from your own experience, and just have them create. Or, you could offer a detailed outline with some of your own writing, and have them fill in the gaps.

Even if you hire a ghostwriter, you can have final editing rights. Once they send the deliverables, you can look over the text to make sure it’s not missing anything. You can work out an arrangement with the writer where they agree to a certain amount of revisions if the final version isn't perfect.

Remember that your book's writing doesn't have to be professional or perfect. Its purpose is to communicate your ideas in a way that is valuable and helpful to your audience. Perfection can be a creativity killer and trying to be too perfect can prevent you from getting your book done. Focus on writing so that it's easy to understand, and so that the reader can actually use what they've learned.
