After thirty years of giving workshops, talks and seminars to family historians and genealogists, Dr Noeline Kyle realised what was missing. What her audience are really crying out for is an easy-to-use reference book to show them how to write and publish their research. How to write and publish your family story in ten easy steps draws on Kyle's extensive experience writing and publishing family history. It provides a template for family historians and genealogists who are ready to take the next step. The book guides them through the process with ten basic steps to help them shape the story, develop a narrative, establish their characters and write biographies, construct chapters, edit their text, use technology, and ultimately, publish and promote their book so it reaches the widest number of readers possible.
