Our History is important
They say elephants never forget, and nor should we. Our family history is the story of how we have achieved the success we have today. Therefore, preserving our personal history is essential. It’s what makes us the people we are today.
We have designed this service to protect your family history; so you never forget and where your descended will always remember you.

Questions to ask
When you start to write your memoirs,
it can be daunting.
So, follow our simple tips to help make it easier. However, the first and most important aspect of writing your memoirs is to enjoy the process. Take your time and respect your family and friends if you are going to add them to your story. You may need to ask their permission to add them if the story involves them making decisions, affecting the outcome and being part of your story:
- Keep your memoirs relevant. Do not jump around your life too much. If you are going to write on one topic, i.e., your hobby, stick to that. Someone reading your book about quilting, for example, will not want to hear about your holiday to India unless you are buying material.
- Write for your audience, but also write for you. If you would like to read your book, then others will want to read it. If you get bored reading the manuscript…
- Be honest with yourself and the events that occurred. Do not embellish.
- Build trust with your reader and write from their heart. However, remember that once your memoir is printed, it is out there and can never be taken back. So, make sure you are happy with the narrative you are telling everyone.
- Start by putting the kettle on, sitting with a piece of paper, and making a list of ideas for your memoir. You will surprise yourself.
6 Enjoy the process.

When your book is published, the hard work begins. Selling your book. Together we will come up with a strategy to ensure your book is available on Amazon, an e-book, and you have an action plan on how to market your book.
How do we do it. What are the hidden tasks?
We are happy to receive your manuscript in any form, from a handwritten document, typed sheets or audio. PrintmyStories will type up your manuscript and return it to you for approval.
We will also check syntax and punctuation and make changes, always with the author’s permission.
The manuscript will be formatted and returned to you for your final approval, asking that you initial each page to ensure it meets with your approval.
Together we will design the front and back cover of your book. We will send you an A4 printed sheet of how your cover will look for approval. Only on your authorisation will we arrange with our printers for the first proof of your book.
On receipt of the first proof, we ask you to reread your book, then recheck the book as it will now take on a different life and feel. Once any alterations have been made and you have accepted the finished book, will we submit it to the printers for publishing?
At this point, we can discuss your book’s retail price, royalties, and where you would like it promoted. THE HARD WORK IS ABOUT TO START.
