A memoir is in essence an autobiography, but of a subset of events. Isaac Asimov wrote 3 books about his life and all three volumes were immense. Memoirs aren’t.
I have many events in my life that I could make into memoirs: my experiences during the Ice Storm here in Montreal in 1998, how I created several longtime publications, memories of two cats (one gone in 2007, one in 2010… these would definitely be non-fiction, so they wouldn’t be under my Bosulliman imprint. That’s for fiction only.
