Having a book about your life isn't just a dream.
We can make it happen!
Leave Your Mark
Maybe you have that manuscript of your story half written, tucked away in a drawer. That would provide a good start. At the very least you will have a collection of photographs from your past.
We will send in a photographer and writer – one of our writers is Roger Vaughan, a former LIFE staffer – to spend a day or two photographing and interviewing you at work and play.
Then Austin Metze, former Time-Life staffer, will design a publication ranging from a soft-bound picture story of 32 pages to a full-length book about your life, and print as many copies as you wish. It would also be produced as a digital e-book, and as a DVD.
The story of your life and accomplishments is a great thing to share with family and friends – a legacy that will inform and inspire them, and bring them closer.
“WOW!! This book is the nicest Christmas present I could imagine, it is breathtaking. Thanks for all your hard work. I am thankful for your talents.”Karl Kirkman, Author and Publisher of “Baltimore Clipper”
“My Dad lived an amazing life: the Great Depression, World War II, business, family and managing five America’s Cup Campaigns after “retiring”. Publishing his autobiography complete with dozens of old photographs and letters from friends was a great way to celebrate his life, share it with friends, and preserve the history for future family. Austin Metze’ fantastic design and production of the book make it a pleasure to pick up the book again and again.”Rich du Moulin, Edward du Moulin’s son
“I’ve done three books with Austin, and having worked with many other designers, I bless the day we met. He’s creative, a consummate professional, and a joy to work with.”Roger Vaughan, Author and Publishing Consultant
