For my review, I decided to personalize a novel with my parents playing the starring roles, as a fun gift for my mom for Christmas. Although these novels are romantic in nature, YourNovel.com allows you to choose "mild" or "wild" content, so I was able to choose the "mild" version since this is for my parents and...well, I felt that would be more appropriate! The "mild" versions of these novels leave more to the imagination with subtle language and limited romantic scenes; They are like any traditional love story - like Bella and Edward in the Twilight series. The "wild" versions have the exact same story line but offer more detailed, steamy romantic scenes similar to the romance novel genre. YourNovel.com includes excerpts of each novel in both "wild" and "mild" versions so that you can get a feel for what the books will be like.
I chose High Seas Romance which is a personalized historical novel set during the turn of the 19th century where England and France are locked in a struggle that plays out over both land and sea. This novel involves battling pirates on the high seas, and I just couldn't help but choose it since I love stories about pirates! Once I chose the novel, all I had to do was choose the style of book (paperback, hardcover, eBook), the language style (wild or mild) and then provide information about the leading couple - For example, for the heroine's best friend, I entered my own name...because afterall, I'm pretty sure I'm one of my mom's best friends!
It was easy to complete the ordering process and I was even able to include personalization for the cover page of the book including a dedication, who it was from, the date and occasion. How cool! There is also the option to add a photo of the couple to the front cover of the book.
The novel turned out really great and is a well-written, adventurous love story. I'm really excited to give this book to my mom in a couple days, I think she will love being the leading lady in her own personal novel! YourNovel.com books make a one-of-a-kind unique gift or keepsake for anyone. It would make a great anniversary or Valentine's gift for your significant other (which is in just 2 months!), or a fun gift for your favorite couple for a wedding or bachelorette party. Or for no reason at all! YourNovel.com is such a cool idea and the books are high-quality, classy novels.
