RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- "Please, call us computerized cupids; we love that title," says J.S. Fletcher, half of the North Carolina husband-wife writing team Fletcher Newbern. For the past two decades, with wife, Kathy M. Newbern, the pair has been putting couples together in their own personalized romance novels using customized software at their online company YourNovel.com.
Their unique service is especially popular for Valentine's. Kathy Newbern says, "Our books have also been dubbed the ultimate vanity Valentine. Some people diss Feb. 14 as a made-up holiday, but it's a day devoted to love, so we're totally on board with that. We also travel the world as freelance travel journalists specializing in high-end luxury and romantic destinations like Tahiti, which also inspire our books. So we are professional honeymooners, another moniker we like."
Adds Fletcher, "We're a couple in love in a business promoting love, and we get to write together about love. That's the best job description I can think of."
All that romantic inspiration has resulted in 50+ available titles couples can star in not only from the founders but from a host of other authors as well. The newest is the third in a detective trilogy by Geno Vincenzo, this one called "Time Share Affair."
YourNovel.com's customized capers come in both huggy-kissy "mild" or sexy-steamy "wild" versions. Each book is personalized throughout with more than 25 details about the starring couple crafted from an online questionnaire, such as their names, hometown, places of work, eye and hair color, best friends, favorite perfume and cologne, their favorite music, affectionate nicknames for one another, and how long they've been a couple. There's even the option of adding the starring couple's photo to the book cover, and all books include a personalized dedication page. Novels come in paperback, hardback and in eBook format.
Depending on the title selected, the starring couple finds themselves skinny-dipping in the Caribbean, frolicking under a waterfall, or making love none-too-easily in a swinging hammock. And, because these novels are adventure romances, they'll also be chasing bad guys on wave runners, foiling a stalker on a luxury cruise ship, tangling with a cougar in the wild, fighting off enemy agents near Rome's Coliseum or confronting black pearl thieves in Tahiti.
