Writing and Publishing Your Life Story

Life stories are family treasures that can be enjoyed by your loved ones and future generations. The successes and obstacles you encountered during your life deserve to be recorded and shared. Writing your memoir can be daunting, but I can help you accomplish the goal of getting your life in print.

Your memoir can be what you want it to be. You can include stories from childhood, or even dig deeper into your family’s roots. It can focus on just one specific moment in time, such as your career or travels. It can be long or short. The details are up to you.

I have had the pleasure of working with several individuals seeking to publish their life stories. In some instances, I’ve served as a ghostwriter, interviewing them or smoothing out their ideas from rough outlines. For other projects, I’ve edited text they’ve written. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to writing your memoir.

I bring twenty years of publishing experience to your project, and I am extremely flexible and understanding of your individual situation. While I respect that you have many things going on in your life, I also like to set ambitious deadlines and help you stick to them so you actually finish your book!

I will be up-front about the costs associated with the project, and I will connect you with professionals who can package your memoir as well as upload it to Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing or IngramSpark so you can order copies of your book, no matter the quantity you desire.
