We Love Memoirs!

As an author, currently writing my third memoir, I’ve become a fan of all memoirs.

What’s better than delving into another person’s life? At the very least we learn that our fears, hopes, dreams, worries, and lack of sanity are sentiments that are not exclusive – (maybe that last one is exclusive to me!)

Let’s Celebrate
Monday 31st August is We Love Memoirs Day and will be celebrated worldwide.

We Love Memoirs (WLM) Facebook group was set up on 31st August 2013 by two memoir authors, Victoria Twead and Alan Parks, who wanted to create a place where memoir readers and authors could come together and chat.

Who Are They?
Victoria Twead is a New York Times bestselling author of “Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools” and the “Old Fools” series, while Alan Parks is the author of “Seriously Mum, What’s an Alpaca?” and the “Seriously Mum” series.

The Ethos
Victoria and Alan were determined to foster a warm community and have always discouraged authors from pushing their own books at readers.

Overwhelming Success!
The results have been astounding, and WLM has grown quickly. New friendships are formed every day, and WLM meet-ups across the globe have become common. Small wonder that We Love Members is often described as “the friendliest group on Facebook”.

Whether you love writing or reading memoirs (or both), you’ll love this group. Join WLM today and start chatting with memoir authors and readers.

See you there!
