Looking for the Ultimate Stocking Filler?

- Make Someone Special The Star Of Their Very Own Romance Novel -

Surrey, United Kingdom – November 2006, U Star Novels, the UK’s first adventure romance novel with a twist… you are the star, has today announced details of their new range of spine-tingling personalised romance novels making the perfect stocking filler this Christmas.

“Fever in France”, “Indecent in Italy” and “Spanish Sizzle” are the first three novels from the business that can be personalised to allow any couple to star in their very own romance novel.

It maybe you and your partner, your best friend and Brad Pitt, your Mum & Dad or even your brother and Paris Hilton who enjoy starring in a steamy love tale, complete with glamorous locations, an adventurous plot and exotic love scenes.

By visiting the site, you’ll be asked to fill in our order form of approximately 26 questions to provide us with the information required to personalise the novel. These straightforward questions include the names of the characters (real or imagined), where they live, where they work, favourite colour, favourite perfume and many more. U Star Novels will then weave these details throughout the 160-180 page authentic novel that will feature you on every page.

Depending upon the story you choose, the hero and heroine could find themselves flying helicopters, smuggling diamonds and escaping from gangsters on the French Riviera. Acting as secret agents to uncover a blueprint for the unfinished masterpiece, La Sagada Familia in Spanish Sizzle, and finding adventure in the catacombs of Naples in Indecent in Italy.

Customers have a choice of covers to personalise their novel further and can also decide if they’d like the love scenes to be sensual, steamy or scorching.

“Our novels offer a truly one-of-a-kind gift and are a great giggle to be enjoyed on Christmas day,” said Katie Olver, co-founder of U Star Novels. “They’re not only exciting stories, but people are fascinated to read about themselves in these books. It takes about five minutes to complete the order form, and within 7 days you’ll have the ultimate personalised Christmas present delivered right to your door.”

More great feedback

Hi Katie
I've received my book, exactly when you said it would arrive! Ive had a quick flick trough it, careful not to break the spine (its a present) and it was amazing! I heard about your books on Virgin Radio, yours was clearly ther best idea. Did you win? I hope so. Anyway, great service, great product. I will be buying from you again. They make excellent presents. Any idea when new titles will be available?

Fantastic Customer Feedback

Whilst the content management system is currently being built for the Testimonials page, I wanted to share some feedback that I have received from a few of our very happy U Star Novel customers.


Just wanted to email you and thank you for the novel which my girlfriend received on Saturday. I wanted to let you know how pleased she was with the book and how surprised she was to find herself the subject of such a well written novel. I also wanted to congratulate you on providing such a fine service and hope that your business goes from strength to strength. I look forward to seeing any new novels you add to your collection and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your service to friends and indeed make use of your service again myself.

Thank you once again for the great gift you have provided.
