Memoirs...with a proviso...
Memoirs are like fiction. The decision to represent memoirs can be very subjective. You may have led a magnificent life, or have a remarkable story to tell, but successful memoirs are contingient on two main ingredients.
First, your capacity to tell a captivating story, your writing style, or, what many in publishing call "the voice". So I look for a compelling narrative; language that permeates the soul, sparks imagination and emotion. So is what you written a diary, that reports on people, places and things, or a memoir, full of insight, reflection, character? An autobiography is a memoir of a celebrated individual. Anne Frank's THE DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL was diary, and an autobiography. Joseph Plumb Martin's A NARRATIVE OF A REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER was a memoir that became an autobiography. A diary and a memoir can become an autobiography...but it all starts with the writer's voice.
Secondly, what is your "platform". What do you have to offer a publishing partner to reach an audience? Success in publishing today relies on an individual's ability to drive consumers sales. Writers need to be able to write, but also adept in virtual self promotion. A good publisher can provide a writer with editorial guidance, quality production, marketing expertise, distribution, and credibililty, but as a partner, the success of your work will depend on your ability to garner attention.
