YourNovel.com customer raves over her reaction to her full custom cover paperback romance novel

 We have the best customers. This one wrote us this wonderful review of our service and particularly the product he ordered for a Valentine’s gift:

We now have 30 different novels where, like this happy customer, you can use your own very special photograph and make it your book’s entire front cover.

“I cannot begin to describe how cool what y’all do is. 

“I did receive our novel today. I knew it would have been a shot in the dark given the time I requested the book.

 “I heard you guys on John Boy and Billy and ordered one. I have no idea what I’ll do next year🤷‍♂️. I’ve hit the Apex.

“I just handed the novel to her, and the look on her face was priceless!!!!!!

 “We cannot wait to read this together, I’m sure we will have several laughs over this. She actually thought I wrote a book at first until I explained it. She really liked the fact that our picture was on the cover. 

“A little note to possible future customers: DO GET THE FULL COVER WITH YOUR CUSTOM PICTURE. It was worth it. I should have gotten a hardback. 
“Thanks again!”

How long does it take to receive a book?

Our normal shipping is U.S. Priority Mail. Normally, meaning without weather delays or transportation issues, you should have your novel in hand one week after getting the email reply that yes, your book has gone to production. That’s for any of our paperback options; please allow a few extra days for the hardback option, which does take longer to produce and make. Keep in mind, please, that each book is printed one at a time, specific to your custom order. Ebooks, by the way, are delivered via email as a pdf within 24 hours.

Here are a more more details from our FAQs page (See all the FAQs here):

What are your shipping and handling (S/H) charges?

We have two options for shipping and handling for both in the United States and for outside the country: STANDARD and EXPRESS. We use the United States Postal Service (USPS) for most of our shipping, but if the need arises, we will use another carrier.

  • STANDARD U.S. Priority is $8.50
  • STANDARD Out-of-Country Priority is $27.50
  • U.S. EXPRESS Service is $32.50
  • Out-of-Country EXPRESS Service is $65

How long will it take to get my book with STANDARD Shipping?

In the United States, paperbacks sent STANDARD U. S. Priority usually arrive within a week from when the order was placed.

Outside the U.S., add another 2-4 business days.

In the United States, hardbacks sent STANDARD U.S. Priority usually arrive within two weeks of when the order was placed. Outside the U.S., add another 2-4 business days.

These are estimated times and can vary for many factors (including weather, which is beyond our control), sometimes making the delivery quicker and sometimes longer.

How long will it take to get my book with EXPRESS Shipping?

EXPRESS Shipping refers to the delivery method, which in most cases in the U.S. is next day delivery after the book has been made. EXPRESS Shipping will normally cut 2-3 days off the delivery time, but remember that the book first has to be produced.

Outside the U.S., add another 2-4 business days.

These are estimated times and can vary for many factors (including weather, which is beyond our control), sometimes making the delivery quicker and sometimes longer.

Will you notify me when my order has been shipped?

Yes, each order placed has a confirmation number that will be sent to you by email, if you’ve provided a valid email address. You will receive three auto-emails from YourNovel.com as follows:

  • When you place your order;
  • When your order has gone to production;
  • When it has been shipped.

If you have questions about shipping, you will find info posted on our blog www.yournovelblog.com or reply to your shipping info email.

Shipping/Delivery for Valentine’s Day 2022

Orders for paperbacks and hardbacks arriving after Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022 at noon likely will not arrive by Valentine’s Day on Monday, Feb. 14. Ebooks, however, are still available and are delivered electronically within 24 hours.

Our printing facility experienced a two-day shutdown due to bad weather, which is beyond our control and theirs.

We have to make each book one at a time and then get it in the mail. We ship all books in the U.S.A. by US Priority Mail (2-4 day delivery) as our regular shipping method. Out-of-country shipping is slower.

The United States Postal Service does not guarantee shipment. Unfortunately, neither can we.

As always, we cannot guarantee delivery of USPS Priority nor US Express by an exact date. Even with EXPRESS shipping, each book has to be handmade first, which means you cannot order one day and expect your book to be there 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 none of us have any such concerns. We simply cannot be held accountable for delivery problems caused by circumstances beyond our control.

Final bits of advice:

1. Consider an ebook. Ebooks go out within 24 hours with no shipping costs and arrive by email.
2. If you think your printed book order may be late, do not use the date February 14, 2022 in your dedication date, but say something like Forever and Ever or I’ll Always Love You.
3. Keep in mind that you can celebrate Valentine’s through the whole week, not just on the actual day, and give the book then.
4. Have a backup plan, like at least get a card. Here’s one that you can download for free: Custom Gift Coming Card

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

Thanks. We appreciate your business and your understanding.

Celebrating our 30th year with 30 novels where your favorite photo becomes your book’s cover

To celebrate its three decades promoting love and romance through a most unusual publishing venture, YourNovel.com, has upped its game to not only letting couples star in a romance/adventure novel together but also providing a favorite photo of themselves to create their own unique book cover on any of 30 different titles.

Your photo can become the cover of your personalized romance novel

People laughed when they learned they could become the characters in their own spicy romance novel.

Innovation is nothing new for the Raleigh, NC, couple J.S. Fletcher and Kathy Newbern, who write together as “Fletcher Newbern.” They started their personalized romance novel company on their kitchen table with $200 back in 1992 with one paperback book that any couple could customize with their names, hometowns, workplaces, eye and hair color, best friends, favorite fragrances and music, affectionate nicknames for one another and more. Those details are scattered throughout the book thanks to an online questionnaire.

That first paperback, Another Day in Paradise (still the best seller), featured cookbook binding and a black-and-white silhouette cover. Thirty years later, the lineup includes more than 50 titles as perfect-bound, full-color paperbacks, hardbacks, and many as ebooks to keep up with publishing industry changes.

For 2022, they’ve doubled their offerings of paperback and hardback titles where any special photo can become the entire book cover. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, there’s something for every taste — beaches, cruises, exotic destinations, time travel, fantasy, detective stories.

All novels come with a customizable, dedication page, and for any book, the customer can add a smaller photo of themselves to the existing cover’s art. “Valentine’s is definitely our busiest season, so we suggest gift-givers order early to avoid delays,” says co-owner Kathy Newbern.

Partner J.S. Fletcher adds, “Over the years, our books have been called the ‘Ultimate Vanity Valentine,’ and we’ve been called ‘Computerized Cupids.’ We love that job title.”

Newbern notes, “Doesn’t everyone have that ‘great idea’ — scribbled on a napkin, stashed in a drawer, buried in a file? We’re a married couple who acted on our great idea 30 years ago, and it changed our lives forever.”

The co-founders and their bright idea have been featured in more than a thousand radio, TV, magazine and newspaper interviews including “The Today Show,” USA TODAY, ABC-TV’s “The View,” People magazine, Elle, Bridal Guide, Reader’s Digest, Entrepreneur and more.

December 14 is the date we need your order in for delivery by Christmas in the USA using our regular shipping method. The Postal Service announced their last day to ship with assurance is December 18, but we still have to produce and mail the books. We ship all books by US Priority Mail as our regular shipping method; you can choose US Priority Express as well. So order now to avoid extra cost or delays. FYI – the United States Postal Service does not guarantee these dates. Unfortunately, neither can we. But you can help by getting your order in by 12/14/21.

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.

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.

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

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.

YourNovel.com gets a shout-out from Mike Evans on Hollywood News

Hollywood news with Mike Evans is always fun, but low-and-behold on Feb. 3, his post-Super Bowl news report also included this fabulous shout-out to YourNovel.com and the personalized romance novels, an especially unusual and cool keepsake for Valentine’s (or, actually, any time to say “I Love You.”)

Officially, says Mike, “THE best Valentine’s Day gift ever.”

Thanks, Mike. You made us feel very Hollywood!

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!”
