HALI‘A ALOHA SERIES
A guided memoir writing and publishing program

Hali‘a Aloha—cherished memories—strives to capture moments both big and small, harnessing the power of short forms to preserve our lived experiences. This option will help you through the entire memoir process, from your first word to finished book. Choose from our Basic Package (self-guided) or Signature Package (coached, one-on-one conferences, developmental editing).

CUSTOMIZED PUBLISHING OPTIONS

Some projects just don’t fit into a box. Whether you have a photo-intensive art book, a unique design concept, a poetry collection requiring hand-adjusted layout touches, or something else entirely, we can help.

E-BOOK SERVICES

Legacy Isle Publishing offers an e-book add-on service for any of our publishing packages. We also provide e-book production services, but our package options may be better suited to your needs.
