Ever imagine being the main character in a personalized romance novel, one set in an exotic travel locale—perhaps someplace you’ve been or would like to visit with a heartthrob? Two of my colleagues have made that dream come true for countless romantics.
I met fellow travel writers J.S. Fletcher and Kathy Newbern at an SATW travel writer’s conference on a Holland America cruise ship and found out they have a unique sideline that dovetails perfectly with travel writing.
Twenty-five years ago, the couple (then romantic partners) had what they now call their “light-bulb moment.” That brainstorm was the genesis for YourNovel.com, a company that produces custom romance novels. You might call their work a labor of love.
Award-winning freelance journalists, Fletcher and Newbern have traveled to more than 70 countries that inspire their novels.
Their company is aptly called YourNovel.com. Customers provide the details to make the books their own: such as their names, hometowns, workplaces, eye and hair color, best friends, favorite music, and affectionate nicknames. They can also choose to have their photo(s) grace the cover of the novel that is produced with one-of-a-kind personal details scattered throughout. These “customized capers come in both huggy-kissy ‘mild’ or sexy-steamy ‘wild’ versions,” and are available in paperback, hardback and as e-books.
My colleagues have agreed to create a personalized romance novel for one randomly selected reader of MoreTimeToTravel.
