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.
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.
