A picture tells a thousand words, but it’s still only part of the story.
At Savvy Scripts, we know that there are so many important moments in our lives that aren’t captured on camera, they’re stored only in our memory. But when our life draws to a close and we leave this world, those memories are lost – the stories of your childhood and what the world was like when you were growing up… all the memories of your loves, your dreams and accomplishments, your hobbies, your life and everything in between – all of them gone..
We believe that your experiences, your memories and your life lessons, are a gift for the future, and are worth preserving.
Our Heirloom Memoirs and Biographies are more than a book of photographs. They’re the collection of your memories and stories – the good and bad, love and loss, hope and accomplishment. We are dedicated to preserving your story and and everything that you can remember – the little moments, and the big ones.
It’s important to note, that at Savvy Scripts we are writers, not historians, and as such do not provide genealogical research. The memoirs can however, go hand in hand with any personal research that you’re conducting and we can collate the information that you have and publish these for you.

The Memoir Creative process
1. Planning Session
This is a FREE, 30 minute session, where we help you work out what size and style memoir you want to create. Choose from a small or large memoir, biography or even novel-sized autobiography.
2. Recorded Interviews
Our trained and experienced interviewers will record your sessions and guide you through the process of documenting your life story. This is where you can ‘let all your memories out’
3. Transcribe & Edit
All of your interviews are transcribed and edited into a draft manuscript, which you will be given to read. This is your opportunity to check facts, make alterations or add any extra information.
4. Photos & Family Tree
You can choose as many photographs as you like, but keep in mind this is not a photobook. If you have a family tree or timeline that you’d like to use, we can also add it to your draft manuscript.
5. Proof & Layout
We collate your manuscript, photos and family tree and lay it out into your book. After a final proof we check formatting, develop a beautiful book cover and prepare your manuscript for the final stage – Printing!
Print & Publish
This is it! This is the art where your life and memories are printed into your very own book. Now you can choose the number of extra copies you would like printed and we will take care of the rest.
