MEDIA REQUEST: Could Your Life Story Become a Published Book?

Today a producer called Lauren got in touch with a new and interesting opportunity. I would consider even putting my own story forward for this. So if you think you have a good life story worth telling – then read on.

Could your life story become a published book?

The BBC is searching for remarkable true life stories that could become best selling books.

Tell us your story and it might be as successful as Calendar Girls or Erin Brockovich


We’re looking for extra-ordinary true life stories from all over Britain. They might be dramatic, heartwarming, funny or sad – as long as they’re true, we want to read them.

Fifteen stories will feature in a major new BBC One TV series called MY STORY. Five people will win the chance to have their stories turned into a book and receive a cash advance of £20, 000.

MY STORY is not a writing competition, so you don’t have to be good at writing to take part. Each of the five stories selected to be published will be ghost-written for you. And if your story is chosen, your name would appear on the cover of your own book.

To find out more visit the MY STORY website at bbc.co.uk/mystory, or email lauren.benson@princesstv.com

Or you can write to us at:

My Story
c/o PO Box 65655,
London W12 2BG.

The closing date for entrants in 16th December.

Seriously I so could be one of those five selected – given my soap-opera-worthy romantic life! Any other brave souls fancy coming forward?
