Did you ever get a personalized book as a child? Remember how much fun you had reading the book over and over since it was about you, your family, friends and maybe even your pets?
Well, Book By You has brought that same fun personalization to adult and teen fiction. There are 14 original romance titles; 3 original mystery titles; 12 classic titles including Phantom of the Opera, Sense and Sensibility and Peter Pan; and 5 original teen titles. You can personalize 20 or more characteristics in your book including eye color, hair color, friends, pets, etc.
For my book, I picked a Teen Book By You, Sea Spell, for Bud’s girlfriend. She is not a big reader, but I think a personalized book will be a great incentive.
I was able to use the names and characteristics of her friends (including Bud) and even her dog and cat!
Here is sample of the text from the book:
Once she’d learned all she needed to, Aspen quickly yanked apart her listening spell. The voices they’d been eavesdropping on faded from clarity to a muted roar through the floorboards.
Rihanna, seated on the floor a few feet away, raised an eyebrow. “Well?”
“Well what?” Aspen teased back, sitting up and brushing some stray blonde hair out of her eyes.
“Did you get any ideas from their conversation?”
Aspen nodded. “I think we should go after the Siren’s Eye.”
“What, the gem they were talking about?” Visions of gold seemed to war with visions of nooses in her friend’s eyes. “What if we find it?”
“Um, we get a reward, what else?”
Rihanna stared at her. “But how would we explain how we found it? Just pray to the stars we don’t get executed for casting magic without a license?”
Aspen clucked her tongue dismissively. “You only get executed for working dangerous magic without a—”
“Either way. They said only Master Mages were allowed to search for this thing. Last time I checked, neither of us meet that requirement. If we find it—”
“When we find the Eye, we’ll hock it to a Master Mage instead of handing it in to the Crown ourselves,” Aspen said brightly. “Trust me, a Master would never admit that someone else found it first! He’ll get the glory, we’ll get the silver—or gold, more like. Everyone wins, everyone’s happy.”
“All right, all right. You convinced me. So where do we start?” Rihanna leaned forward, curious. “The docks? And why are you grinning?”
Aspen chuckled. “Because I love it when I’m right and you make it sound rational.”
I can’t wait until she sees it!!
