Question: What is some advice on writing and promoting memoirs?

> “Reach out to potential review markets or outlets that will help you promote your book.

> “Network to find experts willing to provide blurbs or a foreword for your book.

> “Include specific details (think numbers and statistics) as part of your marketing plan.

> “Submit excerpts from your book to magazines, newspapers or online publications.

> “Compare your book to similar ones and show how  yours will fill a hole in the market.”

Comment: I wish I had read this advice before publishing my memoir, Teaching English, How To….

Title: “How to Make Your Memoir A Stand Out.” M Allen and C O’Shea. The Writer (January 2012), 44-45.
