Customer Testimonials

"I had previously sent you an email stating how very much pleased I am with the book...but, I am not sure whether I fully expressed it. Frankly, the writing of the book is simply outstanding! You and your team have done a wonderful job of creating a very readable and interesting book! I just can't believe how it is all coming together."

"What you came up with was very, very good. When Ray told me you were the best, I thought he was just blowing smoke (he does that a lot you know), but you really do a quality professional job. I have enjoyed working with you!"

"Once I started reading Kevin's story, I couldn't put it down. Though I knew him personally, I did not know all the struggles he faced on a day to day basis. This is a story of love, courage, faith, and an incredible warrior."

"I've had so much positive feedback and response, from the great job that you did. As a matter of fact, I have been nominated for the Georgia Music Hall Of Fame! It was well worth the time and effort!"

"We are very pleased with the stories you did for us, and it has been a pleasure doing business with your company. We have other books planned, and we will certainly be in touch with you for additional work. In the meantime, please know how much we appreciate everything."

Frequently Asked Questions

Who has the rights to my keepsake book?

You do. It’s your book, and you retain 100% of the rights to it.

Can I include pictures in my book?

Yes! All photos must be supplied by you or your family, but we can help you with scanning and organizing them.

Who will be interviewing my loved one or family?

One of our professional ghostwriters will be interviewing your loved ones. Our writers have a talent for putting people at ease and drawing out memories.

What will the book look like?

That’s up to you! A popular option is a hardcover book, professionally bound and printed, with a linen cover, beautiful gold embossing, and interior black-and-white or sepia pictures.

Will I receive anything else with my book?

In addition to your professionally printed book, you will receive digital files of our interviews with your family or loved one.

What if my family members are hesitant to be interviewed?

No problem. We have worked with many reluctant interviewees. After some initial hesitation, most of them find the process incredibly enjoyable. Once we get them talking, we will discover all sorts of fun stories you never knew about! Of course, we will never be pushy or ask them to respond to anything they don’t feel comfortable answering.

How long will it take for our family to get the book?

This is a 100% custom gift. The Interview-Style Gift is our fastest turnaround offering, with an average 12 to 20 week delivery time. For a full-length book, we recommend expecting the process to take between 6 to 12 months. One popular option is to gift the book one holiday season and present printed copies to the entire family the next.

How can I get the whole family involved?

Want to give your whole family the chance to honor your favorite relative? Consider asking others to contribute to a gift “From All of Us”. Sites like make it easy for anyone to pitch in, no need to mail checks or send cash.

No problem. Just let us know how many, and we can get you an exact quote for the copies you need.
