Testimonials

“I’m so grateful that I found Write My Memoirs. We didn’t know what to do with the disorganized transcriptions from my grandfather’s oral history. Now I can’t even imagine the joy that this book will bring to my family over the years! Thank you so much for all of the time, care and attention to detail that you have put into this book.” —Josh Wagner, grandson of author George Hammons

“Write My Memoirs published the memoir I wrote, and my family and friends were so impressed that I had to ask WriteMyMemoirs to print up 20 more copies for me to distribute! The people at Write My Memoirs were very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I didn’t even realize I had some typos until I had their editors look at it. They really cared about the details and the quality and helped me with the cover, too. Because this book was important to me, it became important to them. I would recommend Write My Memoirs to anyone who wants personal service in publishing a life story.”
John Yeates

“Thank you for the outstanding job you did and your helpful responses to all my questions. The finished product, my biography of my husband, Alex L. Inman, was very professional and all that I had hoped it would be. The comments and feedback from those who have read it are heartwarming and reinforce my reason for writing this piece. We all have a history, and it’s the everyday small happenings that make us who we are. The next generations need to know us and how we lived. After this experience, I have decided to begin writing about my own life. Thank you again. This process has been priceless.”
Rochelle Inman

“I wanted to thank you again for all your help with the book. My family loved it—and my Dad was so proud of it. Best was the way that my mother (who has dementia) wouldn’t put the book down and kept looking through it—these were memories she still had and could really enjoy. You had a huge role in producing something that is very meaningful to my whole family. Thank you.” — Dot Sandhaus

Then just set up a chapter and start writing your memoir. Don’t worry about rules. There are no rules to writing your memoir; there are only trends. These trends are based on techniques and features identified in current top-selling memoirs. At best, they’re the flavor of the month. If you’re capturing your life in print for your family, for your own gratification or to inspire readers, rather than aiming to set off Hollywood screenplay bidding wars, these trends don’t even apply to you. You’ll write the memoir that suits you best, and it will be timeless, not trend-driven.There are no rules, but there are four steps:

1. Theme/framework
2. Writing
3. Editing/polishing
4. Self-publishing

You’ve researched this, too, and you’ve been shocked at the price for getting help with any one of those steps, much less all four. That’s because most memoir sites promise to commercialize your work. They’ll follow a formula based on current memoir trends, because they want to convince you that they can turn your memoir into a best-seller. These sites overwhelm you with unnecessary information not to help you, the memoir author, but to address Search Engine Optimization (SEO) algorithms so they can sell more.

That’s not what we do at Write My Memoirs. Our small community of coaches, writers and editors are every bit as skilled as any you’ll find, and we charge appropriately for their expertise and the time they’ll spend helping you craft a compelling, enjoyable read. But you won’t pay an upcharge for that extra commercialization, the marketing that follows, and the pages of intimidating “advice.” You can sell your book if you like—we have ISBNs available for you—but our organic process of capturing your story takes a noncommercial path.

If you want help with any or all of the four steps above, choose from our services or save money by selecting one of our packages. SCHEDULE A CALL TODAY if you’d like to talk about what’s right for you. One year from now, you can be holding your published memoir in your hand. And at that point, it will be a big deal!
