Leave your story for future generations

We believe in the power of personal stories, and the value your lived experience has for future generations. Writing your memoir is an act of love and legacy that future generations will treasure.

You don’t have to be a professional writer to capture your story. The words are your own and they are the right ones.

We want to help you turn your memoir into a tangible taonga that will live on, long after you do. Browse our resources and packages below to see how we can help you, wherever you are at so far on this rewarding and important journey.

What you need to prepare:

  • Your manuscript should be no more than 40,300 words and be supplied to us as a Word file, or similar.
  • If you wish to include photos or other artifacts, such as certificates or drawings, select up to 25 for use in your book. They can be black & white or colour. Get these items scanned at high resolution and saved as individual jpg files that you can supply to us.

A few notes:

  • We do not retain physical copies of your book for ourselves.
  • We do keep the original digital design file of your book, and a PDF file, in the event that you may want to reprint or revise the book in the future. You can ask us to remove this from our system at any time.
  • We do not edit or proofread your manuscript before we design your book, so please ensure you have done this, or have had someone else do this for you, before you supply your manuscript to us. If you would like a professional proofreader or editor to read your manuscript beforehand, we recommend Katie Rickson Copywriting & Editing.
  • We use a local, Auckland-based printer to print your books. Timeframes for printing are dependent on their availability. Freight is included in the package cost.
  • We want you to feel safe sharing your story with us. Please let us know at any time if you have any questions or concerns.
