Father’s Day Gift Giving Made Easy – Put Him in a Golf Novel

If a dad in your life loves to read and loves to golf, make him the hero he is by starring him in Sandhills Fore-Play, one of YourNovel’s personalized novels. In it, he and his Sweetheart experience the world-class Tar Heel Golf Resort, where he receives lessons from the course pros and plays in a PGA-like tournament.

What the pros teach can actually be applied to cut strokes off anyone’s game, including dad’s.

Put Dad in a golf novel.

This novel might be called a cross between the movies Bagger Vance and Tin Cup, especially when a cantankerous old spirit shows up to offer practical advice on the game they both love. 

Throughout the story, the starring couple take their action to a higher level both on and off the course. Enjoy this short video clip about this fun golf novel.

Golf not his bag? Check our separate category of books called Sports and for the Guys.

For fathers, grandfathers, fathers-in-law, step-fathers and so on, a personalized action-adventure, romance novel makes a unique gift. And our books make timely, memorable presents for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and always just to say, “I Love You!” Allow about a week for delivery of printed books.

Please share this idea with friends, family, co-workers and on social media.

Hey, put dad in his own golf fantasy novel this year for father’s day where he takes on the starring role in Sandhills Fore-Play from yournovel.com

For Father’s Day gift giving, we have Sandhills Fore-Play on sale until June 20, 2021. View the sale pricing on paperbacks, hardbacks and ebooks here.

Put that bride and groom in their own novel

Do newlyweds really want a toaster or monogrammed towels as a wedding gift? Are “oldyweds” really going to appreciate silver candle sticks or an engraved serving tray? 

YourNovel.com
YourNovel.com Personalized Romance Novels are the perfect wedding or annniversary gift.

Weddings, anniversaries and bridal showers all come with the challenge of giving a memorable gift. Making the loving couple the stars of their very own personalized romance novel by YourNovel.com will separate your gift from the pack. 

Let the half-hearted give gifts with no passion. Be remembered every time the couple reads your special gift to them.

Use the promotional code WedAnn15% during online checkout at and 15% will be taken off your order. The code is valid until midnight EST July 1, 2021.  Feel free to share the code with friends, family and on social media. 

Top 10 reasons to give YourNovel.com’s books this wedding season:

1. Wedding gift – for many brides, when she reads the first page of the book, it’s the first time she sees her “new-name” in print.
2. Anniversary gift – with June being the traditional “wedding month,” imagine how many anniversaries there are (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, in-laws, friends, and don’t forget yourself); perfect for couples who’ve been together for decades.
3. Paper is the traditional first-year anniversary gift.
4. Bridal shower – toast the bride-to-be with laughter when you read aloud the “wild” parts in her romantic adventure.
5. Bachelorette party – OK, so maybe a male stripper is better for some, but for others, titillating but tasteful is the way to go.
6. Bridesmaids’ gifts – always a bridesmaid and never a bride? Set her up with a little action-packed romance of her own.
7. Honeymoon gift – it’s unlikely you can afford to send them on a $4,000 cruise, but you can put them in one of our cruise books for around $40 – armchair travel. 
8. Honeymoon reading – of course, they’ll have plenty of under-the-covers action on their honeymoon, but they have to come up for air sometime.
9. Know thy bride – if she’s a reader, envision her surprise when she reads about herself in a book starring her and her new hubby.
10. Kindle the newlyweds – our ebooks are sent electronically anywhere in the world – pull an ultimate surprise by emailing the ebook to her email address while they are at their honeymoon destination – to be open and read in celebration of their life together.

Valentine’s shipping 2021

Yes, you can still order a printed book for Valentine’s Day 2020 but we cannot guarantee delivery because of weather and mail delivery, and you can throw in a lot of COVID-19.

There is very little we can do about these issues, but we can control what we do, make personalized books one at a time.

We can suggest for you to order as soon as you can. February 7 normally would have been our cut of date for Standard shipping, which is USPS Priority mail. In 2021, we really suggest that if you want to get a printed book for Valentine’s Day to use US Express shipping.

Our STANDARD USPS shipping may get the book to you by Sunday 2/14/21, but it will be close. If you are the worrying type, or this year maybe the practical type, and want the book by by Valentine’s Day, go with Express Shipping now.

But as always, we can not guarantee delivery of USPS Priority nor US Express by an exact date. And remember that even with EXPRESS shipping, each book has to be handmade first, which means you cannot order one day and expect shipment nor delivery the next day.

Our long-standing policy remains in effect: no refunds will be issued due to weather issues. If planes can’t fly and trucks can’t roll, no mail will get delivered. Weather and disasters are always beyond our power, and we hope all of us have none to be concerned with. Additionally, we will not be held accountable for delivery problems caused by circumstances beyond our control.

Orders going outside the United States are unlikely to be delivered by Valentine’s Day.

Ebooks go out within 24 hours with no shipping costs and arrive by email.

Final bits of advice:

1. Get your order in now.
2. Choose US Express.
3. If you think your order may be late, do not use the date February 14, 2021 in your dedication date, but say something like Forever and Ever or I’ll Always Love You.
4. Keep in mind that you can celebrate Valentine’s through the whole week, not just on the actual day, and give the book then.
5. Have a backup plan, like at least get a card. Here’s one that you can download for free:  Gift Coming Card

We operate year-round, and these books are great for anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and anytime to say, “I Love You.”

Holiday novels available with discount – Order now

This year’s holiday season, normally celebrated with gatherings of family, friends and neighbors, will likely be very different because of the pandemic.

Like you, we are going to miss being with people in our lives with whom we have shared holidays and celebrations in the past. We are sad about that, and even sadder about the mounting numbers of people who have died around the globe.

People are struggling to keep their jobs or find new ones, keep roofs over their heads, gas in their tanks, food on the table, all while the bills keep coming.

Retailers and manufacturers, large and small, from colossal corporations to tiny mom-and-pop shops, face the shared strain of unpredictable sales and staying in business. One in four small companies has gone out of business.

We, too, are a small business facing struggles. If you would like to send a special gift of one of our products to a friend or family member or for you and your own special someone – delivered safely by mail and you don’t have to go anywhere to purchase it – we would appreciate your support. For 28 years we have focused on spreading love around the globe through our personalized romance novels in which any couple can play the starring roles.

We are proud of sharing that love, and thank you in advance for sharing this email and the discount code with anyone else who might appreciate it. Now is the time to take advantage of yes, a special discount.

Enjoy your holiday. Spread love and peace.

The Big Show has a good ole time chatting with Kathy about YourNovel.com

John Boy and Billy, The Big Show, as they became the stars of Love’s Bounty: An Outer Banks Romance.

Yet again, our buddies, John Boy and Billy of the wildly popular Big Show had Kathy on air talking about how fun a keepsake the personalized romance novels are. While our 50+ titles are available year-round, they and we agree, it is the perfect Valentine’s gift especially for folks like us (Fletcher and me) who have been married a long time. John Boy declared it is the most unique gift in the world. Just saying.

Three short stories about any couple’s romp through Paris is the next best thing to being there for Valentine’s Day.

This year, The Big Show folks had a blast hearing about Lover’s Paradise: Paris, where new writer Spontak added her story that, along with two others there, can be personalized with 26 details about any starring couple. It’s called “Paris Made Me Do It.”

So sit back, listen in and prepare to smile especially as Billy declares, “That’s so Spontak!”

Shout out to the writers of the other two stories: Marcy Thomas and Lori Pepio, as well.

And definitely get your orders in preferably by Wed., Feb. 5, for your special Day of Love.

Keeping the love alive since 1992 here at YourNovel.com, and saying thanks so much to The Big Show on the radio and John Boy and Billy, or as Kathy calls them, the Love Bugs!

Mix 95.1 KMXI’s Morning Guy Mike Manley chats with YourNovel.com’s Fletcher

This Chico, CA, station has been a long-time supporter helping us get the word out on what a romantic gift idea a personalized romance novel is for Valentine’s Day or anytime to say I love you. They are also including a YourNovel.com prize in their Valentine’s package this year.

So I got a job on the campus station, and it turns out the guy was right. I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.”

Thanks, Man, and and thanks, Mix 95.1!

Paris book includes ‘Paris Made Me Do It,’ a sexy romp, from new writer Spontak

YourNovel.com is delighted to welcome Spontak as the newest writer in our lineup with her story “Paris Made Me Do It.”  It’s a whirlwind of daring sexcapades and surrealism set in Paris during the Roaring 1920s – a time when people tried new, sizzling things. It is one of three in the book “Lover’s Paradise: Paris.”

Spontak has joined YourNovel.com’s lineup of writers.

Spontak hails from Raleigh, NC, but was blessed with the opportunity to live in a new country every summer growing up. She adores traveling and as soon as she finished high school, took off for the University of San Diego 3,000 miles from home. Upon graduation, South Korea beckoned the new graduate to come teach English while seeing more of the world. Her students were and continue to be an endless source of inspiration for her stories. After two years, Spontak moved to England to attend the University of Kent, which also enabled her to live in Paris for half the term. She graduated with a MFA in Creative Writing and is now set on a course to teach screenwriting at Siliman University and Foundation University in the Philippines.

“You’re Spontak? When can I get the next chapter?” someone demanded of the neophyte writer her sophomore year at university. Ever since, Spontak has pursued story-crafting seriously and hopes to make movie magic in the near future. Her poetry has been published multiple times in several magazines, including The Menteur, Borrowed Solace and Event Horizon, and her first one-act play showcased in Paris through Four Play Theater. This marks her writing debut in the romance novel genre.

Three short stories about any couple’s romp through Paris is the next best thing to being there for Valentine’s Day.

Her story joins two others in the book:

  • “Destiny in Paris,” by fiction writing veteran Marcy Thomas, centers on a plan of passion to ignite the starring couple’s desires, letting them fall deeper in love with each other as well as with the city.
  • Lori Pepio, grand prize winner in a previous romance-writing contest for YourNovel.com, penned “Beyond the City of Lights,” which incorporates a masquerade ball and mysterious stranger to explore where love and fantasy meet.

Spontak hopes “Paris Made Me Do It” inspires couples far and wide to dare – to try new, steamy things together like people did in the Roaring ’20s.

With Valentine’s less than one month away, anyone looking for a sizzling choice for a gift for that special someone should check out “Lover’s Paradise: Paris.” Paperback and hardbacks take about one week to arrive; ebooks within 24 hours.

C’est si bon!

Mother’s Day 2019: Put Mom in her own romance novel and save

Does your mom love a good romance novel? If so, she’s not alone.

Consider that:
– 20% of all fiction book sales are romance novels
– 46% of all romance readers consume at least one book per week, as opposed to the typical American who reads five a year
– 59% are in a relationship
– 84% are women

For a romance novel reader, being the heroine in one of YourNovel.com’s personalized romance novels is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t return. The starring hero in her book is normally her mate, but can be imagined as well, such as her favorite film star.

To choose one of the 50+ books availabl with 25+ bits of personalization, think about where your mom (or the mother of your children) would most like to go on a romantic getaway. (Don’t let the idea of mom and romance get in the way. Our books come in both mild or mild versions – no worries.) We have a special discount to celebrate your Mom – see below.

How about whisking her away to Tahiti? That book is Island of Love. Italy on her bucket list? Try Rome: Diamonds, Danger and Desire.

If Jamaica tops her wish-list, go for Jamaica Rendezvous or Negril Everlasting.

And, if she likes cruising or loves the beach, then check out our category of custom books called Beaches and Cruises for some great ideas.

We will give you this tip: Another Day in Paradise, set in the Caribbean, remains our best-seller after 27 years in print.

Whichever title you choose, she’ll appreciate that you put some thought into getting her something so unique this year.

Mom’s the best, right? After all she’s done for you, it’s your turn to show her a lot of love this Mother’s Day, which is Sunday, May 12. Order soon, as paperbacks take about one week from when you place your order online; hardbacks, a little more time.

During the  ordering process, when asked for your promotional discount code, type in MDay25% and you’ll get 25 percent off your order.

This offer ends May 19, 2019, at 11:59 PM, EST, may be used as many times as you’d like, and can be shared with friends, family and on your social media.

Our best wishes to all the moms out there!
