This is an old-fashioned, word-of-mouth type business. Why? Because there is only one writer, interviewer, researcher and that's me! Generally, half is due up front and is not refundable.
News BRIEFS, $450 to $800.
BIOGRAPHIES. The time involved in each project varies. Larger biographies generally fall in the $1,600 to $3,200 range. Smaller biographies generally range from $800 to $1,600. Let's meet some of these "biographies:" Orphan Train rider Marie Burke; world adventurer Eileen Baldwin who served in the RAF in WWII; and Vietnam veteran David Hardcastle. I have written a few, nearly book-size biographies. These prices are determined by the project.
PORTRAITS & ROOTS interview/stories on artists are generally $800 For a sampling, meet musician/artist Steven Roark.
COMPANION BEST FRIEND stories are generally $400.
Each story involves the interview, by phone or email - and in person if you are very local. We'll discuss photos. I do take photos. I do accept good photos via email. There is fact-checking and research involved in each story, both are very time intensive. Just saying!!
After all this, I write up a page-turner!
Once the final draft is approved, the completed story is emailed to you as a pdf file. Send it out to everyone you know! If you don't have email, I will email it to your family member or friend. It will also go up on my website, unless you would prefer to just keep it in your family.
Does that cover it? I'm sure it doesn't. But it's a start! Once we figure out your needs, we'll make it work. Send me an email and we'll talk!
