Another approach to publishing-
Not everybody plans to write a best-seller. The rise in genealogical
research means that many families have a fine, very personal story to tell.
But how to record it? A scrap-book is one solution. A beautiful, leather
bound and tooled cover is another.
What better solution than to produce a handful of beautiful books.
This is LifeLines Press speciality.
LifeLines Press is different from almost every other publishing house.
Specialising in memoirs and family histories of all sorts, it was set up by
two professional writers who were concerned about the exploitation of the
innocent by vanity publishers.
Working for many years as literary consultants they read a huge variety
of fascinating autobiographies that were not really commercial, but were
nevertheless important manuscripts that deserved to be in print. What they
didnít want to do was make false promises about the possibility of sales.
Thatís why, unlike other publishing houses, the books produced by
LifeLines Press are not intended for sale. They donít have an ISBN number.
Instead theyíre designed to be given away to friends and family, or kept as
family heirlooms for the enjoyment of future generations.
The 'interview service' from LifeLines Press
They were aware that many fascinating autobiographies and family stories were
being rejected by commercial publishers. The only options open to the authors
were vanity presses or and self-publishing. Both these suggest the possibility
of sales which, in reality, rarely happen. Vanity presses can be extremely
expensive, and unless you know what youíre doing, self publishing can result in
fairly indifferent looking books, poorly laid out, on inferior paper.
