Creativity is about options.

The Book of Rhymes was developed to expand your rhyme options and widen your margins of creativity. It is a listing of words, assembled into rhyme groups, on the basis of sound connection. This reference tool helps creative writers, including songwriters, poets, and copywriters, overcome writer’s block and quickly find the right rhyme.

What makes this book truly unique is that it's largely based on “Family Rhyme”, a more inclusive form of rhyme. Traditional rhyme, or "Exact Rhyme", requires words to share an identical ending sound (ex. BABY, MAYBE). Family Rhyme is far more flexible and recognizes words that share a "closely-related” ending sound (ex. BABY, LADY, EIGHTY, SHAKY). This tremendously increases your number of rhyme possibilities, giving you much more room to be creative!

                 UPDATE: WE'RE IN THE RECORD BOOKS!!

It's official! After 13 years of freestyling to create the Book of Rhymes, I achieved the Guinness World Record for “Longest Freestyle Rap”. It lasted 24 hours and 49 seconds non-stop. Dream come true! -Romane

Risks and challenges

With every opportunity comes risks, however, we are confident that we will meet our commitment and fulfill all rewards as soon as possible.

Printing time: While we have a good sense of how long this process takes, in our past experience with print projects, there can be delays.

eBook: There are many technical aspects of creating an eBook. We will test the eBook file on multiple eReaders to ensure that it displays correctly.
