London, Ontario, Canada/October 20, 2009 - Book By You® today announced the launch of its new division, Teen Book By You®, and the release of the personalized teen romance novel First Bite.
Teen Book By You® offers its second full-length personalized novel for teens. Book lovers and vampire fans co-author First Bite by selecting the names and features for the main characters in the book: the intelligent, highly spirited heroine; the sophisticated, tortured vampire hero; the heroine's quirky best friend; and the hero's cynical best friend, a fellow vampire. Readers can include a spouse or significant other, friends, relatives, co-workers or Hollywood stars--even a pet--in their very own novel. The characters' hair color, eye color, figure, favorite restaurant and drink are some of the story's 26 personalized characteristics that result in thousands of changes in each book. First Bite is a 175-page, professionally bound paperback novel that includes a striking personalized cover.
In First Bite, a sensitive, studious high school student is captivated by a mysterious young man who saves her life. Little does she know that instead of a guardian angel, this sexy stranger is a vampire who must battle his love for the heroine over his lust for her blood. This story of forbidden young love is a classic tale with a thoroughly modern twist--the novel is completely personalized with readers starring in the leading roles.
Founder of Book By You® Mike Pocock commented, "First Bite is perfect for everyone who's been mesmerized by the Twilight book series and recent movie, not to mention Vampire Diaries and True Blood on TV. We've taken vampire story-telling to the next level by introducing a mysterious teen-oriented storyline that readers can personalize. First Bite includes the tense drama of star-crossed love, together with classic vampire legends and even dark humor. With the holidays fast approaching and the release of the new Twilight movie, New Moon, we believe our new novel will be a huge success. First Bite is a book you can really sink your teeth into--it'll be the hit of the holiday season!"
