The Memoir Checklist

Is my memoir ready for printing?

This depends on how much work you have spent on your life story. Even if you have a fully complete manuscript, you will still have a little extra work to do like cover design, interior styling, folios, headers, book layout, and editing. If you already have a print ready PDF, you only have a few more things to consider before publishing! Do you want anISBN on your book? Would you like to create an EPUB?

Once you’ve figured out these final details, you will be ready to publish your memoir!

How do I publish my memoir?

There are two ways you can publish a memoir: traditional publishing and self-publishing.

TLAC helps hundreds of authors self-publish their memoirs and autobiographies. If you have a complete or nearly complete manuscript, contact us and we will help you publish your book. If you’re interested in traditional publishing, then you should be submitting it to publishers of your choice.

How long should my book be?

Memoirs can be any length, but we typically see memoirs that are anywhere between 100,000 to 200,000 words. The page count however will depend on how many images, their sizes, and how spread out they are throughout your book. Let us know how you would like to include images in your memoir and we will have a better idea of how many pages your book will be when printing.

Should I have my book edited?

We strongly recommend having your book edited. If you’re only planning to publish one book in your lifetime, you might as well go all the way and make sure it’s the best version it can be especially with memoir printing.

There are different types of editing services too. If you want someone to look at your manuscript as a whole and recommend how you can improve it, you should look for an editor. If you have already edited your work and you’re looking for someone to check for spelling and grammatical errors, you can look for a copy editor or proofreader.

You can check out Editors Canada if you’re looking for an editor to review your memoir before printing.

Top Rated Self Publishing Service

It was very helpful to be able to meet with the book’s designer, Mike, in person several times on the way through. His creativity was integral to the quality of the overall product, which resulted in both a hard cover and soft cover version. I would highly recommend TLAC to anyone undertaking a similar project.
