Description

Your life story is unique, write it down and don’t lose it. If you can write a letter, you really can write a book.

Biographies are not only for celebrities. Normal people’s lives - your own, in fact - can be so much more fascinating and interesting. Experience the joy and fulfillment of writing about yourself, and produce a unique record for generations to come.

REVIEW

This guide will show you how to research, structure, write, present and produce your material in book form. Whether it’s for yourself and your family or a wider audience, the result will be hugely satisfying.
