As you can see, these are very different ways to solve the problem of capturing your parent's amazing stories. We suggest the Storyworth alternative if your family is very budget conscious, or if your parent is eager to do all the writing themselves and reflect over the year. No Story Lost is a more hands-on alternative to Storyworth, where we talk to the storyteller directly, do all the writing, and then provide a beautiful, customized coffee table book - but of course, this service costs a lot more to provide. 

There are lots of memoir companies out there that are No Story Lost and Storyworth competitors - but most of them cost $5000 - $10,000 or even more.

Note: "A Life Untold," "Remento," and "My Life in a Book" are other competitors that are very similar to Storyworth both in structure and in price.
