THE NOVEL DOCUMENT CLASS
The novel 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. If that does not describe your objective, then this is the wrong document class for you. There is no support for E-books. The needs of academic writers and picture-book layout are largely unmet.
If your book is a detective novel, science fiction, romance, or collection of short stories, then you are in the right place. This document class has been used for creating an actual printed novel, both text interior and color cover.
This class requires TeXLive 2016 or later, or recent MiKTeX. Distributions based on TeXLive 2015 or earlier will fail.
Version 1.46.2 January 14, 2018: Internal code cleanup, docs cleanup. No known bugs.
The LaTeX code and documentation are licensed under the LaTeX Project Public License, v.1.3c or later. The included font NovelDeco.otf is licensed under the SIL Open Font License, v.1.1 or later.
