Many hours go into producing a customized book for your family.  We will want to consult with you about the number of people we will interview, the number of hours interviewing, how many photos will be used, the design and other components that will go into this personalized project.  For example, a book based on 10 hours of interview time takes roughly 500 hours to produce.

Writing your life story is a significant investment with far-reaching value.  Creating a customized book will start in the double digit thousands and after we determine the parameters of your project, we will give you an estimate.  Keep in mind, this is a priceless gift for your family. 

Because life stories are customized to meet our clients hopes and wishes, we only commit to a limited number of clients each year.
