How to write a photo memoir
The Photomemoirs system is an easy and fun way for people who don't really consider themselves to be "a writer" to be able to write and publish a short memoir in paperback and ebook format.
It works like this:
You start by deciding on a theme and a structure for your memoir. We'll help you with tips and advice and we'll assign one of our editors to guide you from start to finish.

Choose 30 of your own most memorable photographs that match your memoir theme and sort them into the order that matches your memoir structure

The next step is to make reminder notes about each story using the supplied photosheet.

Now it's time write the stories of the photos.Just write as if you were were showing the photo to a friend  and telling him or her what happened.

Finally send us the photos and the stories

In our standard offers, Photomemoirs editor will do a basic edit and proofread to correct and spelling and spacing and will then format your stories and photos into create a fabulous memoir book with a lovely basic book cover.

When your book is ready for publishing, we will send you a proof edition copy for your final approval.

After your approval, we will publish your memoir for you on Amazon where it can be ordered in a paperback  edition. You will be sent 1 paperback edition and your book will be available on Amazon for anyone to order in a paperback edition.

No writing skills needed
It's a simple way to write a memoir. You don't have to order any books up front and you don't have to be a writer or have writing skills. All you have to do is to collect your favourite photos and tell the story behind them - just as if you were showing your friends or family a photograph and telling them about it.
We like to say that Photomemoirs is more than a photo album but less than an autobiography. Think of it like as an "expanded" photo album with more stories about each picture and not just a caption. Photomemoirs.co is a real book but much easier to write and structure than a traditional autobiography.

For inspiration have a look inside the first published Photomemoirs book which is called "Copenhagen to Ipoh" It tells the story of 2 years spent in Malaysia in the 1950 by a Danish girl who became a British Army wife.
