We’ve written thousands of short bios for delighted customers. So we know how to write the bio that will perfectly fit your needs… and we make it easy for you to get your bio — made professionally, promptly, and inexpensively. Our most popular sizes are Half Page ($75) and One Page ($150). Examples of our bio styles are here. For larger bios (2 or more pages), see our Longer Bio & Other Writing/Editing Services. (Note that we offer $25 discounts for multiple sizes (for example, if you order both a Half Page bio and a One Page bio, or both a One Page and a Two Page).

Here’s the process in a nutshell:

Step 1. . First, you contact us using the “Contact Us” Form, or call us toll-free at 757/515-4315.

Step 2. . One of our team of biography writers is assigned to your project. (This will most likely be either Irwin Berent or Steve Berent. They’re the owners of ShortBios, and they’ve written 1000s of short bios in the last decade — and more than a dozen published books in the last 20 years.)

We respond promptly and begin working with you to get whatever information we need — and that you want us to have — to make your biography outstanding. (Usually we’ll set up a short phone interview — typically for the next day, or any other time at your convenience.)

Step 3. . Once you have spoken to us and we’ve gotten all the information needed, you can place your order, either via our online order-form or PayPal or by phone directly with your Bio Specialist.

Step 4. . Actual writing of your bio, which begins after payment has been received, takes less than one week — a first draft is usually complete in 3 days or less. (Rush orders, guaranteed to be delivered for 24-hour and 48-hour deadlines, are also available.)

Step 5. . When you receive the completed bio, let us know if you would like any changes (additions, deletions, revisions) made. If so, we’ll make those changes promptly (usually in the same day).

We guarantee satisfaction. Usually no changes will be needed when you receive the first draft, but if any changes are needed, we won’t stop making revisions until you’re 100% pleased — and those changes are made at no cost to you!

Step 6. . Enjoy your bio! It’s yours to keep — and you are free to update it at any time (of course, we’ll be happy to make those changes for you too). Also, if you’d like to have your bio placed in our Gallery of ShortBios, let us know (it’s another great way to promote yourself, and it’s free).


If you prefer to write your short bio yourself rather than have us write it for you, here’s a great alternative….
