Grammar Factory helps entrepreneurs write awesome books.
We work with small business owners who want to build their credibility and establish themselves as leaders in their fields through getting published.
While a lot of entrepreneurs are starting to realise the benefits of writing a book, they don’t know where to start. They have an idea (or a lot of ideas), but don’t know how to get it on paper in a way that’s going to attract new clients, create partnership opportunities and boost their business and personal brand.
If they do get started, they find they run out of steam after the first 5,000 or 10,000 words – they have no idea what to write next and no idea if what they’ve written so far is any good.
And once they’ve finished their first draft, they don’t know how to turn their Word document from a brain dump into a best seller.
That's where we come in. We're degree-qualified editors who have worked with clients in Australia, the US and Europe, and we can turn your idea to a publishable manuscript.
- Our ultimate guide to writing an awesome book includes a range of free interviews, booklets webinars and more to help you avoid the mistakes of most entrepreneurs and write an industry-leading book.
- Our Book Blueprint workshops map out your book is so much detail your book will write itself.
- And unlike most of the editors you’ll find online, who just offer a human spell-check service, our editing services will overhaul your structure, content, tone and language to make your book as compelling, coherent and credible as it can be.
What our clients are saying
I was quite worried about writing my book Working Your Mojo. Would it read okay? Would people find it helpful? Would it reflect my personality? Would it be useful or just gathering dust in my garage?
Jacqui's guidance, generous and calm feedback has taking a rambling collection of ideas and thoughts to a book with structure and substance I am very proud to put my name to. I had heard the editor makes the book and I now emphatically agree with that statement, especially with Grammar Factory.
Carolyn is a literary genius, or more like a magician. She took something rambling and confused and made it into something cohesive and authoritative. I had to pinch myself to remember it was my book, not someone else's book I was reading.
Carolyn has such a talent – for both making something great from good in a respectful way, as well as providing respectful, encouraging and valuable feedback. At no point did I think, 'ouch, that hurts'.
Plus, how did she know my thoughts better than I knew them? And the little bits of research and the personal knowledge she added were brilliant. I feel like she is the parenting connections guru!
Grammar Factory was able to take my brief and understand what I was trying to put together and bought it into shape, at the same time largely kept my style in tack. I was shocked when 7,000 words came out of my initial manuscript and chapters had moved around, but it all made sense and gave it great value.
