Will Grace teach me how to write a book?

Grace offers book coaching. This means you have expert support to help you achieve your writing, publishing or book marketing aspirations.

Grace also understands you need to develop the necessary skills to write or self-publish a book. So, your coaching sessions have been designed to work hand-in-hand with Grace’s writing and self-publishing training programmes.

Therefore, in between your coaching sessions, depending on your chosen package, you have the opportunity to learn writing and self-publishing skills. This is what makes this coaching programme unique. So whilst you get expert support to progress with your goals, you also develop the necessary skills through training. Depending on the package you choose, you get a free access pass to enrol on training programme(s). You also have the option to take the training programme(s) as standalone courses.

Who is ideal for the Starter Package?

As this package does not include any of Grace’s training programmes, this package is suited for anyone who one or more of the following apply:

  • Has completed a writing course previously. Therefore knows how to write a book.
  • Has a significant amount of writing experience and wants to write a book.
  • Has a completed or soon-to-be completed manuscript and requires expert support to shape/hone it.
  • Is ready to publish their book but is not sure how.
  • Wants support with marketing their published book.

The started package is NOT ideal for anyone who does not already possess writing skills as Grace will work on the premise that you don’t need training.

What if I start the Starter Package and discover I need further training?

You have two options:

  1. Upgrade your package.
  2. Take Grace’s training programme as a stand-alone course. You can enrol on Grace’s training programmes via her online training and development website (www.gracefinstitute.com).

PS: The second option works out more expensive!

I am interested in the Starter Package. Will get access passes to the training programmes too?

In short no…unless you upgrade your package or take the training programme as a stand-alone course. You can enrol on Grace’s training programmes via her online training and development website (www.gracefinstitute.com).

How do I attend Grace’s training programme?

Grace’s training programmes are online. So you access them anytime and anywhere, at your convenience. You can enrol on Grace’s training programmes via her online training and development website (www.gracefinstitute.com).

I’m signing up for the Executive/Elite package. When do I get my training manual?

You get this with 30 days of you signing up.

What’s Grace’s VIP Masterclass Programme?

This is a powerful training and development programme exclusively for Grace’s clients. The aim of the programme is to develop world-class authors, speakers, leaders and coaches. The content is delivered by video, monthly, where Grace shares from her extensive professional experience. This programme is not available to the public and is exclusive to you.

Can I have more than one session per month?

Yes…for an additional fee. Let us know if this is of interest to you and we will discuss this with you.

Can I talk to Grace in between sessions?

As you may appreciate, Grace is very busy with other clients, ensuring she offers them the same value as she does to you. However, Grace is keen to hear from clients, particularly when you have good news to share, you are facing an opportunity or challenge. So, for client on the Elite package, email support is available. Terms and conditions apply, and these are not to be misconstrued as additional coaching sessions.

I am not in the higher coaching packages. But I would like access to Grace’s training programmes. How can I get access to her training programmes?

You can enrol on Grace’s training programmes via her online training and development website (www.gracefinstitute.com).

By the way, you get more value (both in learning and investment) when you opt for the higher coaching packages as Grace is available, through your coaching sessions, to support/coach you as you make your way through the training programmes.

Kindly note that the online training programmes are standalone courses without coaching/support although you can enhance your experience by bolting on separate coaching packages, for an additional fee.

Furthermore, the training programmes within this coaching programme have been discounted for our clients. These discounts do not apply when taking these training programmes as stand-alone courses.

What is the duration for my access pass to Grace’s training programmes?

Your access passes are for the duration of your coaching programme i.e. 9 months. You can extend these for an additional membership fee. Just let us know.

I want to complete this coaching programme quicker. Can I fast track the programme?

Yes, at an additional cost. You can opt for an intensive 5-day boot camp, 1-month or 3-month programme subject to terms and conditions as well as Grace’s availability. Furthermore, you must have the time, space and funds to complete the programme in this manner.

Why nine months?

In short, Rome was not built in a day!

The last 20 years of Grace working with people has demonstrated that so much can be accomplished in 9 months, with solid goals, focused actions and an expert coach.

What happens after the 9-month programme?

Grace is available to offer further coaching support.

Got more questions?

At first, I attended Gladys’ writers  programme in 2012 and it proved to be valuable as I was writing my second book. Since then, through working with Gladys, I have become more focused in my writing and have improved my writing style. I have also saved time and money by avoiding costly mistakes. I also learnt powerful secrets, tips and tricks of the writing and publishing trade. Furthermore, I can get my manuscript done faster than ever. I highly recommend working with Gladys.

Do you have a creative book idea within you but don’t know how to get started? Perhaps you got started but then got stuck with your manuscript? If so, you are not the only one. That was me! That was until I started working with Grace Gladys Famoriyo – my book coach. Having working with her for some months now, I have found Gladys, to be conscientious, professional, supportive and more importantly, reliable. I learnt so much from her especially as she was sharing from her personal and professional experience as an author too. By us working together, my initial book idea became a solid manuscript. And now, my book is being published with Westbow Press (part of the Thomas Nelson family). It will be out summer 2015. Furthermore, learning from Gladys, I have also developed essential speaking skills – one that authors of today really need especially where a lot of the marketing is down to the author. So, I benefitted in more ways than one. And so, if your dream is to become a published author, I highly recommend working with Gladys. She has made my writing dream come true. Thanks Coach!

Very informative Master Class. Grace made my writing goals, which seemed impossible at the time, possible, by breaking down the process into bitesized, achievable goals. I took all the steps and presto….my book was born

This programme has taken me closer to my writing and publishing goals. The programme offered many useful tools and techniques which were thoughtfully prepared and presented. I was inspired and challenged by the programme as well as connecting with other people with similar writing aspirations as mine.

If there is one thing that stood out for me, apart from the excellent programme, is the encouragement and impetus I got to get started with my book. I plan to start asap as I have so much detailed information to work with. I am no longer clueless!

Since working with Gladys Famoriyo and the Academy, I found it immensely valuable having the support on my journey to achieving my goals. Having someone with the necessary expertise to guide, encourage and keep me accountable is priceless. Thank you for the support.
