The perfect lockdown project? The current situation is difficult for us all and it is challenging to find positive angles to focus on. Binge-watching TV all day long might be fun for a while and those long walks are tremendously vitalising, but isn’t there anything else more meaningful and longer-lasting we could do?
Have you always wanted to tell your life story but never found the right moment? What about writing your memoir right now? If you are concerned about your safety, let us reassure you straight away. Since March 2020 we are operating a 100% safe Covid-19 process. Everything is done remotely in an easy and safe manner.
Are you struggling with technology? There’s nothing to worry about. If you don’t have a suitable internet-connected device at home, we’ll provide you with a free pre-installed and connected (via an integrated sim card) tablet. It works directly when you switch it on so no technical skills are required.
LifeBook’s founder, Roy Moëd, comments:
“Since the start of this pandemic, we have doubled the number of memoirs we are working on. However, we have many budding authors who are delaying writing their memoirs because they do not feel confident using video technology. We have therefore decided to provide free internet-connected tablets to those who need them. Everybody should be able to write their memoir during the lockdown.”
Over the course of 10 video interviews, guided by one of our expert interviewers, you tell us your story. Every one of our interviewers has lots of experience working like this, so if you’re still not sure he or she will be there to help you.
Your dedicated project manager guides you through the project making sure everything is going smoothly and managing your team of experts: interviewer, ghostwriter, editor, typesetter, and proofreader. Things couldn’t be simpler or more Covid-19 secure, and there couldn’t be a more satisfying way to spend the next few months.
One author who adopted the new remote interviews, Gerry Gooch, said:
“As an 82-year-old, I am not IT literate in any sense of the word, so when I learned that the next interview for my LifeBook was going to be with Zoom I shrank back into my shell in alarm. However, after a little help, I was soon up and running, with Zoom installed on my recently acquired smartphone.
I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable the whole experience of my Zoom interview was. I didn’t need to get another chair into my quite small study for my interviewer to sit on or even to make him a cup of coffee!”
We have a secure ‘no touch’ pick-up & return service for all the photographs and significant documents that you’d like copied and included in your memoir. Finally, once your memoir has been finalized, we offer to ship each copy directly to family members and friends.
