Writing Books/Writing mmy autobiography


I am a African American female and I served in the United States Navy from 1988-1996 which including the Gulf War.  I have a interesting story to tell which I have started to write.  Where do I begin and who would be interested in my military career?

While writing the story, it should have a hook, something that will interest readers. If you need help, you could hire a ghostwriter. Advertising on is a way to get a ghostwriter. Publishers may focus on certain subjects so you may want to look for publishers interested in African American subjects or the military. Writer's Market is a book that lists publishers and their subjects. It is in reference sections in bookstores. Through a search engine, I found this site for people who write about their military lives at It is free to join. Good luck!
