Introducing Memories of Me: A Complete Guide to Telling and Sharing the Stories of Your Life

Introducing Memories of Me ~ A Complete Guide to Telling and Sharing the Stories of Your Life

That’s right, a new book for memory collectors will be released this May.

If you’re thinking to yourself, “Wow, that title sounds very similar to Laura’s book,” you get an A+. It is very similar.

In fact, it is the same. Just the title has been tweaked. Well, that and it’s getting an even better cover. The sudden influx of expertise comes courtesy of Cedar Fort, Inc., who will publish Memories of Me in May 2014 under its Plain Sight Publishing Imprint. Plain Sight publishes “lifestyle and life-enhancing non-fiction,” so I’m happy about that fit.

FAQs

Is this post just a piece of shameless promotion?

Well, yes. Sort of. I’m sorry.

Will all TreasureChestofMemories.com posts be shameless promotions from here on out?

No way! Though I may drop in an update or two in the coming months, the goal of this blog remains unchanged: to give helpful tips and resources about preserving and sharing memories. In fact, though it’s structured differently and more in depth, that’s pretty much the goal of Memories of Me: A Complete Guide to Telling and Sharing the Stories of Your Life.

What happened to the “Treasure Chest”?

Introducing Memories of me and keeping Treasure Chest

Introducing Memories and Me doesn’t mean the treasure chest is going away.

It’s not gone. The imagery of creating a treasure chest of memories as well as references to my grandmother’s “Treasure Chest of Memories” will still be part of the book.

To be honest, it was hard to give up on my grandmother’s title. However, Cedar Fort’s marketing focus group felt like “Treasure Chest of Memories” sounded a bit old-fashioned and didn’t carry the connotation of modern memory-sharing platforms such as blogging and social media. I decided that the new title was best for the book. I’m pretty sure my grandma would be okay with that.
