Make History by Making History
- Publish Your Historical Book -
If you have a passion for history and want to leave your research for generations to come, then publishing a historical book is the way to go! Every library in the country has shelves containing hundreds of volumes researched by local historians. These books are independently published and will sell very well in your region for decades. Every few years another generation of students is taking an interest in your legacy.
Getting started on your historical publication
What was an important part of your history? Many decades from now, what will others appreciate having explained to them? Understanding past circumstances will create sensitivity to world events today. Kids especially like looking at old photos. City or institutional history, military battles, major events, & school or church histories can all be written for publication.
Start with an outline and then begin gathering all published materials & newspapers, major developments or activities, events by era, larger than life individuals, significant buildings, oral history interviews, colorful stories, and lots of interesting photos with circa captions. Then interweave these with your reflections thru a narrative that pulls it all together.
Let’s make a book
Writing a comprehensive history is not overwhelming; just start at the beginning and take as many pages as needed to tell the story. Wise Publications would like to be involved in your project as early as possible and we can often make suggestions that will save you extra work.
Our editors know what different types of history should look like, sound like, and what the readers look for to reach a purchase decision. Your role is to seek out a rich source of materials in a systematic way. We will take your history in any form, deal with the technical elements, & edit a book out of your work.
"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots."
