About Stories

All of our children's books contain plenty of adventure but no violence.

Themes such as the value of friendship, creativity, perseverance and the importance of children following their dreams are explored and uniquely presented in a manner only possible through a full-length personalized story. The themes and values are presented subtly using motivation metaphors to enhance the story, and in no way detract from the storyline.

Yes, we have books specifically for teens and young adults. Most of the personalized characters are of high school age, and the themes are generally more mature and aimed at older children and young adults ages 11 and up. Additionally, many of our Classic books are great stories for older children and yound adults.

Golden Night has no romance; the relationships among the four personalized characters are of friends and colleagues.

Fierce Moon is a romantic suspense where the hero and heroine become personally involved during the investigation; there are some spicy scenes between the two. The plot interweaves both mystery and romance.

We have rated our books for sensuality and developed the Book By You Chili Pepper rating system to help choose which book is best for the intended reader. Each romance book has a chili pepper rating - the more chili peppers the more heat and passion.
