Life Story

Would anyone really be interested in my life?

“A man’s experiences of life are a book. There was never yet an uninteresting life. Such a thing is an impossibility. Inside of the dullest exterior there is a drama, a comedy, and a tragedy.”Mark Twain

Everyone has a story to tell. Perhaps now is the time for your life story to be told? We will guide you through the process step by step. When you sign up to our Life Story package you will be given access to our unique questionnaire designed to tease out all those memories that lay buried.

How long will it take?

Some people complete their story within one session, others may take several weeks as they ponder their life and the events and people that have shaped it. It’s your life story and it’s entirely up to you how long you take to tell it!

When you have completed the questionnaire and sent us the photographs you would like to include, we will design your book and send you a pdf proof copy for your approval. Once approved, publication usually takes around two to three weeks.

What will it look like?

Your Life Story will be contained in a beautifully printed book measuring 20 x 25 cm in full colour on premium lustre paper. You can choose to buy the hard back with dust cover or the soft cover version.

What will it cost?

The book creation package costs £150, payable with your initial order, plus the cost of printing which will vary depending on the size and cover type of your book. A typical book of up to 10,000 words with pictures would be approximately 80 pages long and extra copies would cost around £34 for a soft cover or £55 for a hardback with dust cover. These prices will vary slightly depending on the final size of the book. Once you have approved the proof we will send you an invoice for printing. On receipt of the final payment, printing will commence.

Extra copies?

You will also receive a free pdf file of your completed book but you may want to buy extra copies of the book itself for friends and family and these can be ordered at any time after printing is completed.
