How it Works


A professional writer from Book of My Life will write your life story for you based on a series of interviews. We will then typeset your biography and arrange for a small number of books to be professionally printed. 

Creating a Biography with us is Easy

You’re just four steps away from holding your life story in your hands

1. Interviews

If you decide to commission Book of My Life to write your memoir or biography, we will match you to an experienced writer in your area. He or she will meet you in a place convenient to you (normally at home) and chat to you about your life, recording the conversations. 

2. Writing

Your ghostwriter will transform your memories into a well crafted narrative. Your story will typically be written in the first person and will read as though you have put pen to paper. Once your book has been written and edited, we will ask you to read the first draft and make any amendments or additions before we proceed to the next stage.

3. Layout

When you are satisfied with the content of your book, we will help you to select a number of photographs to be included in the bound copies. We will then typeset your book and, if required, design a dust jacket with your input. You will then have the opportunity to read your biography or memoir again to make sure that you are completely happy with the look and content of your book before we arrange for it to be printed and bound.

4. Printing

As many copies as you require will then be delivered to your door. And we’re sure you’ll join the ranks of our many satisfied customers!

You can find out more about how your book will be created on our blog.

The finished product is stunning. Mum was so thrilled to finally have it in her hand that she had a little weep (most unlike her!). She has been proudly giving copies to her friends and has been reading and re-reading it herself.

The book is so well produced I look at it still with wonder. Is that really me?

Editing

Have you already written some or all of your life story, but are unsure about what to do next? It may be a good idea to have your work independently edited by someone who is not as close to the project as you are. Book of My Life can polish your prose, tidy up your typing and check for any errors or inconsistencies that you may not have noticed. We can also help to organise your writing so that it reads in a clear and appealing way. We can’t help you get your book published with a major publisher, but we can arrange for a small number of copies of your book to be printed and bound for personal use. 

Typesetting, design & printing

Once you are happy with the content of your book, Book of My Life can typeset it, design an attractive cover and arrange for a short print run of paperbacks or hardbacks.

Proofreading

If your book has already been typeset, designed and edited, it may be useful to have the work independently proofread. Let our eagle eyes scan your words to make sure that errors are caught before going to press—not afterwards.
