Big News!

Novel Journey has been one of the best well known and read literary sites since 2005 when we were founded. We've had the same look since then, so maybe it's time for a change.

We're not only getting a new look, but also a new name. Novel Rocket. Why would we do such a thing? Well, the guy over at the dot com won't sell and posts "thought turds". No likey.

So, we started looking for another dot com we liked, and came across Novel Rocket and realized right away that was the perfect name for us.

We will be offering the same great blog content that earned us a ranking among Writers Digests best (yes, we're very proud of that!), but now we're so much more.


So kind of you to inquire.

We will be offering a service called "Rocket Pages". Think of it like a Craig's list for writers or a writers yellow pages. You need an editor, we have them listed on Rocket Pages. You need a logo designer, book cover designer, someone to set up your website, etc. That's right, Rocket Pages will be the place to come and find those folks.

What else?

You know just the right questions to ask. I like that about you.

Well, we also have services like the "Blasting Off Package" and the "Ready to Launch Package" which helps get you a basic website, business cards, book trailers, header designs, those sort of things.

What is this FOREVER SALE I'm hearing about? 

The forever sale is our way of saying thanks to our faithful NJ readers and to build up the Rocket Pages listings while word is getting out.

This is how it works.

On the Rocket Pages tab of what will soon be the new Novel Rocket site, if you have a service that will benefit writers and those in the publishing business, and you book a listing between now and the end of July, you will FOREVER get fifty percent off that listing, so long as your listing never expires. If it does lapse, you simply begin paying what everyone else is at the current rate.

We go live, God willing, July 1st. In the meantime, if you go to you'll only find a squatter page until go live. BUT you can see what we WILL look like in July by visiting our playground site at

All the info you need to book a listing, place an ad for your book or see what we're up to is there.

So, go take a look and tell us what you think!

  8. Oh wow you guys, that is FANTASTIC! Congratulations on this new chapter (sorry, couldn't resist). you've come up with some brilliant ideas, and I love the name Novel Rocket.
