Both my mom and dad own their own small business. Through watching them, I have seen how much dedication it takes. I appreciate ALL small businesses for this reason. Not only do time and money go into owning your own business, also your heart and soul… at least for the good business owners!
It really is a huge accomplishment to be in business for TWO decades! Twenty Years! Wow! That is why I want to raise my glass to YourNovel.com for accomplishing something great!

To think this husband and wife had an creative idea which started at their dining room table! Which has now turned into over 40 books in hardback, paperback and ebook!
The husband and wife duo, Fletcher and Kathy, are celebrating their 20th birthday milestone with their newest book – Celebrating Romance II (Celebrating Romance I was for their 10th birthday milestone!). This book is different from their typical books. Why? Because this book was created from a writing contest they had last year. The 10 winners of the contest got their short stories published in this book as well as won some fantastic prizes!
Celebrating Romance II has something for any starring couple:
• "Piece of Paradise" by Jamie Loafman
• "Greco Romance" by Marilee Smith
• "On a Rainy Night" by Yonnie Groza
• "Halloween Delights" by Eren Deniz
• "Infectious Love" by Emily Dommershausen
• "Island Forecast: Danger" by Jayne Grey
• "Remote Control" by Lee Malcolm
• "The Grape Escape: Romance in Wine Country" by Sunshine Morrison
• "An Aloha Scavenger Hunt" by Diane Vann
• "Mayan Riviera: Unexpected Encounter" by Lisa West
New for 2012: Celebrating Romance 2, the anthology of the 10 winning short stories in the 2nd Personalized Romance Writing Contest celebrating 20 years in business. From island settings to mountain getaways to a zombie tale, great adventures await, and as with all YourNovel.com books, it comes in a Wild or Mild setting.
My Thoughts: It was easy to get started with the personalization through the short answer form on the website. You can see examples of both “WILD” and “MILD” versions… but I have to say, the “WILD” isn’t something too rosy up your cheeks… it is not as risqué as it sounds! We even got to add our own photo to the cover! We received a few emails letting us know the delivery and process time as well as a personal email from Kathy to make sure someone’s name was spelled right (it was a weird spelling!). Such detail! What a personal touch!
Although we are just a few chapters in, we are enjoying the novel so far! I am very happy with the way it turned out, and the cover picture is clear and crisp! I highly recommend these custom romance books! Such a great gift and creative keepsakes for Valentine’s, Anniversaries, Weddings, Bridal Showers, Birthdays or just anytime to say "I Love You."
