We’re getting down to the wire—just a week and a half to figure out what you’re getting your dad for Father’s Day 2019. You know your dad has a lot of stories to tell. May I suggest memoir coaching, writing and publishing services as the perfect gift?
A lot of people start writing a memoir only to abandon it. Why? Because writing a book is hard. From figuring out what to write to organizing the information in chapters to sitting down and grinding out the words, the process can feel overwhelming. Having a coach/editor in your corner can make all the difference.
Our professionals at Write My Memoirs can interview your dad and do the writing for him, or we can coach him to do the writing himself and we’ll edit the work as he goes along. We have a “magazine-style bio” option that produces a magazine-length article all about him, and all he has to do is talk to us and send us pictures. Or maybe your dad’s pretty far along in his memoir, and all he needs is the gift of publishing. We’ll take his document and photos, lay out the book for him and publish it as a paperback or hardback book with as many copies as he wants.
This becomes a gift to the whole family, because you’ll have his life documented in his own voice. Years from now you won’t regret neglecting to ask your dad about his childhood, his days in the military, his work or his feelings about life’s challenges and triumphs. At a certain point, people have most of the material things they need. A gift like this shows your dad that you’re thinking of him beyond yet another necktie or the more powerful drill. You care about his life, and you want to find out more. You care about what he cares about. We would love to get to know your dad and help him have a published memoir!
