Written a story that others need to read?
Let Porch Swing help you prepare and publish your masterpiece!
After you sign up for an account, Porch Swing puts you into your first story. You can add chapter names and title numbers. Start writing. Save your work and add pictures when you are ready.
Porch Swing automatically gathers your stories and creates a StorySite for you. This is where all of your stories (or chapters) are saved. You can turn each story into a chapter and print a book later if you want. You can give your StorySite a title and a picture. You can also store videos and audio recordings on your StorySite.
As you write each story (or chapter), hit Preview My Book to see what it will look like when printed. When you’re ready, hit Print My Book and confirm your list of chapters, add the title and cover pictures, and your hardcover book will be sent to you, normally within 1-2 weeks.
We recommend 6-12 stories (chapters) for a book. Stories (chapters) usually are around 4 pages each including pictures, so that makes a 24-48-page book.
Story Coaches: Our Deluxe Package comes with four 30-minute sessions with your Story Coach to help with writing, story ideas, editing, or help with your StorySite.
Personal Biographers: With our Personal Biographer package, we write your life story for you. You will have 10 45-minute sessions with your Personal Biographer who will write your story for you.
