What's new in the fourth edition?

SOUND EFFECTS:  Just like your handwriting and scribbles in this book will become a memento of you, so will the sound of your voice.

Smartphones have easy-to-use voice recording features so consider recording some messages, tall tales, part of your life story, disclosures or admissions, jokes, your songs or poems, bedtime stories for the grandkids, ukulele playing attempts, chats with your budgie, or anything that will serve as a reminder of you.

DISHING UP YOUR STORY:  Stories have been told at your kitchen table, memories shared, laughter had, celebrations held, and hearty meals and conversations enjoyed.

If you have a special recipe, a secret ingredient, or a home hack or tip, here is your opportunity to share it with others as part of your legacy.


INDUSTRY UPDATES: Any updates to the information contained in the fourth edition, released in August 2023, will appear here below.
