CTAN Update: novel
Version 1.50.1 contains many new features. Interior image placement commands have been improved. A new sandbox mode allows the use of packages that would otherwise be prohibited. Interior images and color cover artwork can be processed by cross-platform scripts. The TeX code and user HTML documentation have been cleaned and improved. If you are in the middle of working on a document using novel, and you find that your layout has changed with this new version, the documentation provides the solution.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/novel The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/luatex/latex/novel/

novel – Class for printing fiction, such as novels
This LuaLaTeX document class is specifically written to meet the needs of original fiction writers, who are typesetting their own novels for non-color print-on-demand technology. Built-in PDF/X is available, using new technology.
The package is well suited for detective novels, science fiction, and short stories. It is however not recommended for creating color picture books or dissertations.
According to a communication by its original author in November 2022: “Due to changes in TeX and various support packages, parts of novel no longer work properly.” This orphaned package is therefore in want of a new maintainer.
