The long and short of the cost:
Some life stories are longer than others. Here are the rough price ranges:
For 20 hours of interviews: $15,950, plus printing
For 30 hours of interviews: $20,950, plus printing
For 40 hours of interviews: $25,950, plus printing
For 50 hours of interviews: $30,950, plus printing
The printing cost is usually in the range of $10-$15 per paperback copy or $15-$25 per hardcover copy.
The prices above include interviewing, writing, proofreading, and professional book layout and design. Some stories might incur other incremental costs such as newspaper reprints, photo licensing, and travel, which will be provided and agreed upon before starting.
We ask for a $5,000 deposit, which is 80% refundable through the first 5 hours of interviews.
