Every life story, business or tribute book created by Never Forget Legacies is an exceptional quality custom product.
A major factor of the cost is the length of the book, which is largely determined by the number of interviews. Most life stories can be told in four to eight hours of interviews.
Fees are based on the scope of the project and take into account all of the activities necessary to produce a book: planning; research; interviews; transcription; writing; photo scanning, restoration and captions; editing and revisions; proofing and book design. Due to the labor intensive nature of these projects, the cost to produce a legacy book for an individual starts at $10,000.
Fees for a business history are determined by the length of time the business has been in operation, research, number of interviews required and target length of the book.
Editing and coaching services for individuals writing their own life stories are billed hourly with packages starting at $500. Book production services also are offered.
Fees for audio CDs, DVDs and other services such as tribute books are available on request.
Never Forget Legacies & Tributes will help you find the best option for your budget. Please contact us for a free initial consultation.
