  • Writing the Hawai'i Memoir Now Available on Audible.com

    Darien Gee's award-winning writing guide, Writing the Hawai'i Memoir, is now available as an audiobook via Audible.com.

    This step-by-step blueprint for starting and completing your memoir (or family history) leads writers of any experience level through a natural, intuitive writing process that can be followed at any pace, quick or slow. This guide is for anyone who has a life story and wants to share it with others.

    Narrated by Carin Gilfry, with a dedicating pule written and recorded by Rev. Danny Akaka, Jr., the audiobook edition of Writing the Hawai'i Memoir lets you absorb Darien's advice while you're on-the-go. Or, sit in your favorite chair and think of it like your own personal writing seminar!

    Courtesy of Darien, we have three free Audible downloads to give away! Want one? Here's how to enter: Tell us the one-sentence summary of the memoir you would write.

    You can tell us in any of three ways:

    • Leave a comment on this blog.
    • Post a comment on our Facebook Page (preferably where we've shared the link to this post, but anywhere on the page is OK).
    • Tweet us (@watermarkhawaii) using the hashtag #hawaiimemoir ("Hey @watermarkhawaii, my #hawaiimemoir would be: ...")

    On September 1, 2015, we'll gather up all the responses and pick three lucky winners at random. (You'll need to sign up for an Audible account and have either a smartphone or Kindle in order to redeem and listen to the audiobook.)

    Here are some examples from our Watermark Publishing and Legacy Isle Publishing memoir releases to inspire you:
