Hello there, my name is Andrew Griffiths, I’m an international bestselling author. I’ve been writing books for almost 25 years. In that time I’ve written 14 books that have been sold in over 65 countries. I’ve been published by leading publishers, Allen & Unwin and Simon & Schuster and in recent years, I’ve embraced self publishing, working closely with Publish Central.
Just about every day someone comes up to me and to say that they want to write a book. I’m often amazed at just how many people want to write a book, but the big problem is they simply don’t know where to start. And in reality, the book writing and publishing process is a complex one, where it’s easy to make mistakes. In other words you need a great guide, and that’s where I come into the picture.
In the past 10 years I’ve personally coached and mentored well over 900 people to write and publish their first book (and I’m very proud to say that some have written two, three, four and even five books with my coaching). I’ve worked with authors from virtually every industry sector who have written books on just about every topic imaginable. I’ve developed unique frameworks, models and processes for new and aspiring authors that help them not just write a good book but write a world class book. I’ve taught book writing and publishing programmes in the UK, Singapore, Bali and throughout Australia.
A few years back I started to run 4 day Author Academy retreats. The concept was to take a group of new authors to a beautiful location and help them map out their books in detail and get them one hundred percent ready to write. I ran my first few Author Academy retreats in Bali and they were very successful. The people attending the retreat loved the immersion concept and I loved teaching in this environment. We had the time for deeper discussions, one on one coaching and workshopping of everyone’s book concept, structure and overall plan. And of course, this has translated in virtually every author doing the retreat writing and publishing their book.
I’ve run these retreats in Bali, Cairns, Inverloch – and now Hobart. The main aim is to help you get clear on your book idea, develop your book plan and give you the skills and knowledge to be able to write your book.
AUTHOR ACADEMY is exclusively for aspiring authors who are ready to write their first non-fiction book. It’s going to be an energetic, informative and engaging few days where you will learn a great deal about the book writing and the book publishing worlds. The group size will be kept at 15 or below, so spaces are limited. All of the information you need to know about AUTHOR ACADEMY can be found below.
