All about Novelize

Find out how it started and what we're doing next.

If You Want to Get Your Novel Written

We created Novelize to help you get your novel written. It was specifically developed for fiction writers like you. Novelize is simple to use and doesn’t require a steep learning curve. All you have to do is log in and start writing. You can work on your novel anywhere on any device. We also make it easy for you to keep track of the details of your story, such as information about your characters, from inside of your writing screen. With Novelize, you can write your novel from start to finish, because it has all the features you need, including outline mode and a chapter reorganize function.

For those who like to know the techy details: Novelize is using the Software as a Service (SaaS) model to allow you to write your novel anywhere on any device. It was developed in PHP and is hosted on servers by Digital Ocean. Novelize has been built with the Laravel Framework. Novelize is a great tool for writing novels. By focusing on novel writers, we can put all our efforts into creating the perfect tool for novelists.

Who's Behind Novelize?

As with so many other great business ideas Novelize started out as a side project from home. Husband-and-wife team Anita and Josh Evensen created the first Beta version of Novelize in 2013. The official launch happened in the fall of 2014.

Josh first started building Novelize, because he couldn’t find a novel writing tool he liked. As a web developer, this didn’t stop him for very long. Since its initial conception, Novelize has undergone several facelifts and updates, getting better all the time. With in-house development skills, we don’t have to wait for outside funding to continue adding new features.

Novelize is our biggest passion. We take the security of our customer’s data very seriously, and we will continue making improvements to the service. More importantly, we really want to help you get your novel written, because that’s the whole point of novel writing software.

Where Is Novelize Heading?

Novelize is getting better all the time. The most important features are in place, but there is still a huge to-do list. For example, we're working on developing more notebook functions and more useful progress reports.
