World's First Full-Length Personalized Children's Novel
London, Ontario, Canada - December 1, 2000 - Book By You
Publishing, through its Kids Book By You™ division, today announced the release
of its full-length personalized children's novel 'The Golden Key'. Children's
adventure stories have recently received wide acclaim and 'The Golden Key'
propels this genre into cyber-space by allowing children to include themselves
in the fantasy.
Now kids and parents can co-author their own full-length fantasy novel by
selecting the names, features and places to personalize. They can put themselves
or someone special in the leading role and include friends, relatives or even
television characters. 'The Golden Key' is a 100-page, professionally bound
paperback novel with over twenty characteristics to personalize and it includes
a personalized front cover.er.
Mike Pocock, founder of Book By You Publishing commented, "Last year we
successfully launched the personalized romance novel 'Love's Next Door' and the
response was overwhelming. We immediately realized the importance of character
and story development when personalizing a full-length novel. Emotions
overflowed - some readers laughed at the antics and others cried at the romantic
theme. These types of emotional responses helped us to realize the power
personalizing content can have upon readers. Children accept the world of
fantasy much more readily and their imaginations run wild as their personalized
character develops throughout our 100-page story. This is far different than the
current personalized picture books that contain little in the way of story
'The Golden Key' is a classic tale of wizards, mystical worlds and
remarkable escapades that will amuse, excite and delight the imaginations of
both young and old alike. Great for children of reading age or the story can be
introduced to younger children as a bedtime classic. Themes such as the value of
friendship, perseverance and following your dreams are explored and uniquely
presented in a manner only possible through this full-length personalized
format. To add to the adventure the company has added personalized hand shadows
of the animal characters included in the story.
To purchase a personalized novel, readers fill out a character questionnaire
by specifying the various criteria and information to be included in the book.
The questionnaire is fun and easy to complete with three essential characters
and features such as hair color and style, eye color, main character's street
address and the name to appear in the front cover. The many personalized
characteristics make this book a remarkably individual and unique gift.
Pocock further commented, "We plan to use this new personalized children's
book product to launch our new E-book platform that will deliver personalize
content through a broad range of media."
