We personalize our paperback front covers and the first pages of our hard covers, and they look absolutely stunning! Just think of your personalized novel on the bookshelf or coffee table with your heroine and/or hero's name highlighted in big bold letters. Additionally, if you choose to have a photo added to the back cover for paperbacks and hardcover editions, the names selected will also be included on the back cover. With eBook editions the names will appear under the photo displayed on the second page of the book.
Of the choices in the drop-down menu (e.g. Heroine and Hero's first names, Heroine's first and last names, etc.), most people select the Heroine and Hero's first names.
Note: all names will be taken from the top sections of the Character Questionnaire (for example, the Heroine's first and last names).
The high-stakes world of stock car racing requires ambition, smarts, passion and ingenuity. Our heroine, a sponsor representative, has these qualities in spades, as well as wit, an instinct for car mechanics, and of course an undeniable beauty that causes our racecar-driving hero to stop short whenever he sees her. After extricating herself from an unsatisfying relationship with an egotistical superstar in the racing world, our heroine focuses on her goal of owning her own race car and getting behind the wheel herself. She's certain a romance with our hero will sidetrack her from her ambitions, but the fiery passion they share cannot be denied!
When entering the heroine's first and last names, include the commonly used first name and a surname that differs from the hero's last name. If you are purchasing this book for a married couple, use the heroine's maiden name. If you can't remember your heroine's maiden name, feel free to make one up. Unusual names like Bigglesworth are fine and are actually quite funny in the story!
Descriptions of hair color, length and type are included within the storyline of the book - so select the basic description that best suits the person you've picked to be the heroine. Not sure of the eye color? Many people select gray for those eye colors between hazel and blue. NOTE: We cannot add or change the descriptions that have been provided.
Our heroine's best friend is a sassy, flirty gal who loves the racing world (and especially the men who inhabit it!). Using a ploy to sneak off from work and join the heroine on the racing circuit, the best friend gets involved in the heroine's ambitions, not to mention her own romance. Through it all, though she seems to have a one-track mind at times - focused on luxury and fun - she'll support the heroine no matter what, with sound advice and a warm hug when necessary.
If you can't think of a 'female friend' for the heroine, don't worry! Select a public figure or Hollywood star.

Able to negotiate the most treacherous turns on the racing circuit, our handsome, hard-driving hero gets caught up short by the set of dangerous curves belonging to our heroine! He's a confident, sexy, passionate man who has no doubt he can win at Daytona and any other venue. If only he was as certain about his ability to win the heart of the frustrating, multi-faceted leading lady of his dreams! With his funny, loyal crew chief and the best team in the business, our hero crosses the country defying the odds despite fierce competition. Will our hero's pride cause him to back away when our heroine has her own successes at the track? Will his skill as a driver be enough to survive a nasty rivalry with a reckless racer? Or is his brave, generous and strong nature enough to weather these obstacles and cross love's finish line?
If you can't think of a 'hero', relax! Pick a Hollywood star or public figure. Let your heroine fall in love with Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson, Christian Bale, Denzell Washington, Jon Hamm, Colin Firth, or any other hot celeb! (Unfortunately you can only pick one!) Or pick a fun character such as Al Bundy or Homer Simpson.
Choose the commonly used first name for the person you have selected. For instance, use Bob instead of Robert if he is commonly referred to as 'Bob'.
