After ordering your Made to Order Audiobook, you’ll receive an email from us with a link to a calendar. Here you can schedule a time for a zoom video call or a regular phone call with one of our writers. If you’d like to invite other family members or friends that would like to be part of the creative process, just share the zoom link with them and they can join as well!
This call is usually finished in under 30 minutes, but can run longer in some cases.
During the call, we’ll ask you about the main character’s life, family, friends, interests, and more. Some things that you should be prepared for our writer to ask include:
- Biographical info such as date and place of birth, their parents and siblings, education, and career.
- Any funny or interesting stories from their life. You know, the ones that get retold at every family get together.
- Any big accomplishments that they’re proud of or that they’re working towards.
- Any messages that you’d like to add to the audiobook directly. You can have the narrator read them or we can take a clip of your voice from the call and add it directly to the audiobook.
Our writers are always open to any ideas that you may have as well! After all, this is a personalized audiobook. We like to view the creative process as a collaboration with you.
After this call is finished, our writer will get to work writing a script about everything discussed during the call. When they are done they will send the script to one of our professional narrators.
Once the narrator is done, it will be sent to an audio specialist who will bring the audio to professional levels (the same audio standards used by Amazon, iTunes and Audible).
Your personalized audiobook will be between 15 and 20 minutes in length and be completed within 7 days of our call with you.
Once it’s ready, you’ll receive an email with a link to your Made to Order Audiobook. From this page you can listen to it or download it to keep forever. Feel free to share it with whomever you’d like! (and don’t forget to tag us on social media if the gift is a hit 😍✨🎈)
