Recently a friend of mine commented to me that people have been telling her to write a book about her life for years. The problem was that she didn’t know where to start. And this is a common problem. Your life has been through a lot of changes and growth and each day you’re not documenting your life, that story you’ve been wanting to write only becomes more complicated.
Hiring a writer to assist in telling your story is a great way to chronicle your legacy from start to finish, but for many the cost of hiring a writer can seem as daunting as writing your life story yourself. I’m hoping that this book package can help both document your life and do it in an affordable way that you can either keep as is or use the information to write a more detailed account of your life down the road.
This package includes an interview or series of recorded interviews that I will then transcribe and provide as a Word and .PDF manuscript.
Gathering information is the first step to writing a book. By documenting your information you can preserve your life in an interview format, continue on to complete your story in book form, or save the manuscripts as background information when you are ready to write your book yourself or hire a writer to complete your memoirs.
The cost of this interview/transcription is $2,000. ($1,000 deposit, and four installments of $250 paid prior to submission of the final drafts.)
What is included is
- 10 hours of interviews
- Transcription of interviews
- Word copy of interview transcription
- .PDF of interview transcription
- Audio upon request
For an additional $350 I can create a:
- Transcription in paperback book form. Fully formatted with front and back matter, acknowledgements, your author bio, introduction, and pictures. This will also include a full cover with front, spine, and back cover.
If you have questions or would like to start your interviews contact me and I’d be happy to schedule a phone call to discuss the next steps.
