Most of our clients feel a bit uncertain about telling their stories, but those concerns disappear when they see the gratitude and joy it brings their children and grandchildren. From the successes and high points to the difficulties and lessons learned, your story is the most important legacy you can leave your family.
Our project timelines vary significantly depending on the size of book and your availability. Most books are finished in 3-6 months. Because we give you the opportunity to review and approve your written manuscript, edits and changes, and the finished book design, the timeframe will vary according to your availability to complete the approval process. If you are looking to receive the book by a holiday or special occasion, contact us for a free consultation to discuss your timeline.
You have complete control over the content of your book. We provide professional writing, editing, and design, but at each stage you will have the opportunity to review and request changes.
Yes, of course! If you have already written some or all of your book, our editors and writers can help add a professional touch and prepare your book for design. Please contact us for a free consultation and we'll offer you a quote on completing your book.
It's your choice. After the interviews are complete, we will spend several hours with you gathering photos and mementos and captioning them together. Once the manuscript first draft is complete, you can take as long as you need to review and request edits. Similarly, after the book is designed, you will give final approval before we send it to print, and you can take as long or short you like.

Since the scope of these projects vary widely, please contact us for a free consultation and we'll be happy to provide you with a project quote.
Yes, during the interview process we sometimes find that another package is a better fit. Typically, that's because our clients discover there's more story they'd like to tell or more photos they'd like to include. At any point along the way, we can increase the length of the book or add custom features like a family tree, ethical will, or custom photography. Contact us for a free consultation and to discuss custom pricing.
Since family sizes vary, all of our package prices begin with just one book with extra copies are available for purchase. The typical cost per copy is $70-100.
