1. Writer Match
Tell us a little about yourself, your goals, and your ideal biographer. Our team will recommend a writer — sometimes more than one — who suits your project perfectly. It’s your memoir, so the final decision is yours!
2. Welcome Package
Once we’ve confirmed your writer, we’ll send you a welcome letter explaining the process. Complete and Novella package buyers will also receive a gift pack including a luxury pen and notebook – perfect if you are planning a surprise for a special occasion!
Our questionnaires are designed to jog your memory and provide a structure for your interviews. They’re easy, fun, and bring back memories you haven’t thought about in years or even decades!
You can also choose to purchase an additional interview session and forego the questionnaire.
In-depth interview sessions with your writer form the backbone of your story. These are almost always face-to-face sessions in your home.
Typical interview sessions are 2 or 3 hours long. If your package includes more interview time than this, it will probably be spread out over multiple sessions.
5. Your photos
While your writer is working on the text, you send us photos to include in your book. Your editor will be able to advise you on getting old photos scanned and digitized.
You can also invite friends and family to contribute images online.
6. Your Comments
After we review and edit the text, your writer will send you a draft to comment on.
Your writer will make requested changes and finalize the story before it’s professionally proofread.
7. Print & Delivery!
Once we’ve got all the last details right, our designers will lay out your book’s cover and interior. You will have the opportunity to sign off on the PDF proofs before your book goes to print.
Your beautifully bound, hardcover books will be printed and delivered to your home. From beginning to end the process normally takes eight to twelve weeks, depending on the length of your book.
