If you want to capture your journey and pass it on to your children and grandchildren, then write your legacy book and get it published. If you’re not exactly a writer or historian, never fear! That’s where I come in. As a professional ghostwriter and book editor, I can begin your project from scratch or complete what you’ve started.
There’s nothing more meaningful than a legacy book. These special types of books can include a birth-to-present account of your adventures, a dive into ancestry.com and your predecessors’ roots, or a description of a specific time when you built a business or shepherded children into the world.
Perhaps you’ve worked on a farm or ranch, traveled to foreign countries, served in a branch of the military, or invented something remarkable. Perhaps you grew up during the Great Depression or watched loved ones deploy during WWII. Or maybe you managed to raise a brood of children, broke barriers, or served in volunteer organizations such as Rotary or the Red Cross. These moments in time are story-worthy. The should and can be shared now and well into the future.
