Frequently Asked Questions

Autobiographies can be difficult to write and hard to read. Our Q&A interview solves both of these challenges. Interview questions naturally prompt you to remember interesting events in your life. Not everyone feels like a confident writer but absolutely anyone can answer questions. Best of all, loved ones who read your story will feel like they're sitting down with you and having a wonderful conversation about your life. It's your story, told your way, in your own words.
Yes! We know every story is unique so you will always have the opportunity to add your own questions to make sure nothing is missed.
As our interview is self-paced, we've had people finish their life story in a single sitting. Others love the process and continually refine and expand their answers over many months. It's totally up to you! If you're looking to interview your loved one yourself, we recommend setting aside at least 3 hours with them. Our questions will spark a wonderful conversation so enjoy the process and remember that you don't have to get through all the questions in a single sitting.
With your permission, we carry out a standard spelling and grammar check for free. However, if you'd like a more thorough edit of your final book before printing, we can do this too. Our editing service involves checking spelling and grammar, in addition to taking a close look at how your story is presented. It may involve lightly rewriting or reordering parts of your story to make it easier to understand. We charge $150 per 10,000 words for our editing service (this is the average length of an A Life Untold book). The final approval of all words before printing will always be in your control.
Absolutely. No autobiography is complete without photos and there are no restrictions on how many you can add!
Your initial purchase with A Life Untold includes your first hardcover book delivered to your home.

We don't have any word limit, page limit or limit on the number of photos you can add to your book. That being said, if your book ends up longer than 200 pages, we charge an additional $20 per 100 extra pages. That's just to cover the extra printing cost. As a guide, most books end up around 150 pages.
