Personalized books that aren’t just boring books – but romance novels that kick up the heat – is YourNovel.com’s specialty. While they offer many categories to select from, ranging from Beach Cruises to Outdoors to Holiday themed choices, I could not pass up the idea submerging myself, literally, into a sexy vampire story, complete with my name in it, my hair color, favorite fragrance, and the ability to design my own man! (Hah! If we could only design our own men in real life!) But if you’re looking for something seasonal, you might want to check out Season’s Greetings Season’s Love or The Magic Snow Globes – which allow you to do the same kind of self-submersion into the book, but with a holiday twist.
Their concept of designing a personalized romance novel has been featured on The View, The Rachel Ray Show and The Today Show just to mention a few, so you know that this is the real deal for something special.
Their website makes it very easy to enter all of your personalized information so you can make the story revolve around you, and any person you want – real or fictional, an old flame or even a celebrity crush. The book can be personalized with a photo or left with its original cover; and you can select from paperback, hard cover, or ebook options. Then, you can decide if you want a “wild” or “mild” version for how much – ahem – “romance” you want sprinkled throughout. (Most people go for wild; I did too!)
I chose the steamy version. By page 8, things already took a pretty hot turn in the novel. The author wastes no time. It conveys the idea of sexuality and sensuality, but nothing rawly pornographic –which frankly, is a bigger turn on for most people.
While you supply some personalized information, you have to remember the story is fictional, as well, and will not mirror certain real aspects of your life and of those who you characterize in this book. The easy-to-fill-in form prompts you to enter your name, names of others, descriptions, and an assortment of details that will allow you to become the characters in the story that weaves a tale of adventure and passion at the same time.
I really like how as you type in your name and other required information for the story, that each entry blank displays the information you enter below each box so you can see if it makes grammatical sense before you submit it, so it will work seamlessly when the book is published. Yes – they send it to you hot off the presses. They print it on demand and ship it out in less than a week.
Hmmm, you might be wondering who I picked as my leading male in my book. If you know me, you know I’ll keep you guessing! I actually made up a fictional character since I knew I was going public with parts in print!
Suffice it to say, the story did not disappoint and I was easily able to envision the characters I created, along with myself in the scenes throughout the novel.
The plot kept shifting forward at an easy-to-read pace that I found enjoyable in a relaxing way. The last thing I want to do is sit down and read a book before bed that’s going to tax my brain and this fit the bill.
