Chapter One. Welcome to LifeTime Memoirs, the world’s leading personal memoir and autobiography service. Now it’s your turn to discover the pleasure that comes from turning a life well-lived into the story of your life!
How? By settling down and telling your children, your grandchildren, and perhaps even your great-grandchildren the story of your life, in one beautifully written, illustrated, and printed volume. When you do, you’ll be creating a piece of family history that can be shared with generations to come.
With the help of our expert team of interviewers, ghostwriters, project managers, editors, typesetters, proofreaders, printers, and bookbinders, writing your life story couldn’t be easier or more Covid-19 safe. We even provide a free internet-connected tablet. The challenge of becoming an autobiography writer turns out to be a joy. It also turns into an audio treasure, with the one-hour recording we make of you reading your favorite extracts from your book.
More than 8,000 people already enjoy owning the LifeTime memoir or autobiography of someone they love.
First, you just have to talk to one of our interviewers. Over the course of 12 90-minute face-to-face meetings, he or she will help you tell your story.
Our process is 100% Covid-19 safe, learn more about it here.
Next, you simply read and review. Every minute of your conversations has been recorded and listened to by one of our memoir and autobiography ghostwriters. They’re chosen for their ability to write your memoir in your “voice.”
When you’re happy with your manuscript, complete with photographs and significant documents, it’s time for the third and final stage: production.
Soon, 10 copies of a beautifully bound, section-sewn, linen-covered, hardback book will be delivered directly to you and the family and friends you’ve chosen to receive a “first edition.”
Which leads to the fourth stage: sharing and enjoying your very own personal autobiography with those who matter most to you.
In this video, bookbinding expert Francis Atterbury and LifeTime's founder Roy discuss our approach to making high-quality memoirs and, more importantly, why the choice of materials and bookbinding methods are so important. Francis has a long experience of making books and helped us establish our new way of making premium memoirs in 2018.
