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).
Our smart, lovely heroine is a talented baker who can create confectionary works of art. But she's not so hot when it comes to relationships... in fact, she's pretty soured on them. She's generously agreed to help one of her friends, a daffy bride-to-be, with wedding preparations. While our heroine is able to keep her cool under the stress of chaotic bridal plans, she's not able to deal with the handsome hero whom she keeps running into... literally... at the supermarket. Despite their obvious chemistry, the heroine doesn't want to get caught in yet another romance that flops like a bad souffle. She even ignores her best friend's advice to take the leap of faith and get with this cute new guy. Can he win her heart and teach her that love is truly sweet?
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 smart, funny gal who's also helping with their friend's wedding preparations. She provides a shoulder for our heroine to cry on, and a good swift kick when our heroine needs one of those, too.
If you can't think of a 'female friend' for the heroine, don't worry! Select a public figure or Hollywood star.

The hero is a genuinely Nice Guy--they really do exist! In fact, he's such a nice guy that sometimes people take advantage of him, but he's determined to stay strong and turn over a new leaf so he's not treated like a doormat. Truth is, he's a skilled, very able 911 dispatcher who deals with serious crises every day. So why does one sexy baker make him lose his cool? He's a patient and compassionate man, but will he have the patience to deal with our heroine's trust issues?
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'.

Our hero's friend is a laid-back sorta-slob who's taking the leap into matrimony with the love of his life. He's so laid back that sometimes he forgets to actually thank his friend for putting up with him. Overall the future groom is a solid friend who thinks very highly of his buddy, and wants the best for him.
If you can't think of a male friend for the hero, don't worry: select a fictional character or even a Hollywood star! Imagine the hero having Brad Pitt or Will Smith as a buddy.
Another of our heroine's close friends, this gal is hyperactive and extra-frazzled as the Big Day approaches. She's a kind, gracious woman but has a tendency to bulldoze everyone into doing several chores in preparation for the wedding... and sometimes forgets to even ask before she thrusts a new job on them. Over-emotional, harried, and head-over-heels in love with her fiance, this bride is not exactly a Bridezilla... but she's not exactly low maintenance, either. She's lucky that she's so endearing because otherwise she might have a mutiny on her hands!
If you can't think of a second 'female friend' for the heroine, don't worry! Select a public figure or Hollywood star, such as Jenna Fischer, Oprah Winfrey, even Katharine Hepburn.
