Are we Facebook friends yet? I’m the wactress (waitress/actress) turned lawyer who lives her life online. (Don’t we all these days?)
Anyway, I’ve got this problem. . . . There’s this guy. His name’s Peter. He’s my best friend and co-worker, and we just started dating, which is potentially a huge mistake. But, that’s not all. There’s this other guy, Marty. I met him on eHarm, and he ran with the bulls in Spain. I can’t get him off my mind. What a mess. I’d love your advice if you can take a second out of your crazy, high-tech life. Shoot me an e-mail. Or text me. Or BB messenger me.
And friend me if you haven’t already! You can find me on Facebook under Save as Draft.
"This book catches your eye, with it's shiny, hard silver cover, reminiscent of a small laptop. Which is appropriate, since the story it contains is told completely through emails, texts, Facebook status, BlackBerry messenger and dating site profiles. And the amazing thing is, debut author Cavanaugh Lee pulls it off with style. This is a funny, quick, and embarrassingly accurate (for those of us slaves to the social media or who ever dipped our toes into the internet dating scene, at least) portrayal of life and love in the media age. She even includes a glossary of sorts for those of us who don't speak text. This a quick and funny read that will have you laughing, blushing, annoyed or teary at any given moment, but always, always it will make you turn the page to see just what is going to happen next. Original and clever, this prosecutor by day and author by night with a fresh new voice is someone to keep your eye on."
