Featured Resource: Catch My Story

I am really excited about a service that I recently became aware of that has already helped a large number of people write their life story.

Catch My Story is an online story-builder that is easy to use – very easy! Using the process can help just about anyone with a computer and online connection put together their story. The online platform is very affordable and guides you in capturing your memories, organizing them, and then sharing them with friends and family. Once you have written your narrative and uploaded your photographs you can then preview the book. Making revisions is easy. And your finished story can become a beautiful hard cover book.

Over the years I have encountered many ways, including several online platforms and sites, that provide a way to tell your story. I think Catch My Story is a good one and I am currently using it for a book project of my own. I am excited to be able to offer you a discount arranged for you, the Your Life Is Your Story readers. When you visit Catch My Story and are ready to begin then enter this promotional code YLYS18 at the Get Started page and receive a $5 discount off the already low price of $29.99. The online software program is easy to use and you can start putting together your book – your story – right away.

That’s it for this month’s issue. Thanks for reading. Be sure to visit our blog regularly, and here’s to telling your story. Do give it some serious consideration because I just know you’ve got a great story to tell! Be sure to see the Get Started section.
