Formatting Your Memoir

Formatting Your Memoir
For many people, writing a memoir is actually the easy part; the challenging part is publishing it in a form that looks like a real book. At Write My Memoirs, we help our members make that happen.
Formatting for publication can be especially difficult when you include old family photographs. You have to scan the photographs, upload them onto your page and lay out the page to accommodate the photograph. When you have color photos, you have to decide whether to publish them in color, which is more expensive, or convert them to black and white. If you’re not familiar with photo resizing and manipulation, fonts, page layout tricks and a few principles of design, you may have trouble with all of this. You also need patience! Visually, your book becomes a puzzle to put together. Even if you group all of your photos together instead of using them to illustrate your work throughout, you still need to make them look good. A border around each photo can add polish, and captions can help the reader figure out who’s who.
At Write My Memoirs we make it easy on you. Through email and phone calls, we listen to exactly how you want your book to appear and do all of the formatting for you. All you have to do is upload the text and images into your account on our website or email it all to us. We hope you contact us when you’re ready to publish—and we’ll do the rest!
