Guide to creating your book
Setting up your book takes seconds!
Simply choose a book title, cover image, who its for and your deadline. It's a good idea to give contributors 2-3 weeks to gather content, but you can change all details at any time by visiting the 'Settings' wheel in your page.
Be the first to share your story
Post a message or a photo by going to 'Share Story' or 'Add Photos' section of your page. You can really set an example for the type of contributions you're looking for by going first.
Invite friends on your own terms
Share your StoryStarter page whichever way works for you by going to the 'Invite' section. Simply copy paste your unique link using your favourite messaging app, use our 'Share the Page' options or send an email.
1. Start & Invite Friends
2. Collect Photos & Stories
Invitees can post and keep inviting others
All friends you invite get to invite their own friends. You can create a great book with just 7-8 contributors. But, it's always a good idea to get the recipient's 2-3 closest friends to invite their circle to maximise reach.
Manage friends' posts to meet your deadline
As you approach your deadline, you can nudge your invitees along to finalise their contributions. Just go to 'Message Group' section to send a reminder or to give some ideas for what they could write about.
Post as many times as you'd like and for others
There's absolutely no limit to how many times you can post! As you think of new stories or find forgotten pictures just come back and add. We'll send you a warning to cut back if your contributions exceed 200 pages.
3. We Print & Ship Your Book
Our online Editor puts the StoryStarter in full control
Once your deadline arrives as the StoryStarter you can go to Editor mode to revise the layout and edit chapters and posts as you wish. Just make sure all contributions are in, since there won't be opportunity to add more later.
Preview a FREE copy before ordering and share with friends
You can preview the PDF version by 'Re-generating' your book. Edit the layout and content as many times as you'd like, and share with your contributors as a way to say thanks.
