Your story is worth saving

Stories To Tell is a self-publishing service helping ordinary people turn their extraordinary life stories into books and audio memoirs for family, friends, and community. Our mission is to help our clients pass on well-told stories about their lives and family history – honest, heartfelt, universal stories that will stand the test of time and even entertain. 

I'm Meghan Vigeant, owner and oral historian at Stories To Tell, and I believe we each carry a story that deserves to be told and passed on to others. I bring ten years of experience creating compelling written and audio narratives in your unique voice that are each, as one client described them, “a little work of art.” 

Stories To Tell provides oral history interviewing, editing, manuscript development, scanning and organization of photographs, audio recording, editing and production, transcription, copyediting, book design, memoir coaching, and a variety of printing and publishing options for every budget - basically everything you need to turn the personal stories of your family into a keepsake for the future. 

The end products include custom books, audio memoirs, family bonding, better understanding, and lasting legacies. 

Here are a few reasons why I love what I do.
