Save as Draftby Cavanaugh Lee
Synopses & Reviews
“Reading Save as Draft gives the vicarious thrill of peeking where one shouldn’t only to get drawn in by the warm and funny heartbeat with which Cavanaugh Lee has infused this up-to-the-second modern romance—a truly good time” (Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, authors of the New York Times bestselling The Nanny Diaries).
Inboxes are the new diaries, only much easier to find and unlock. Cavanaugh Lee’s fresh, fun novel breaks all the rules of dating—from misfires, typos, and emoticons to LMAOs, OMGs, and WTFs—while illustrating all that can go wrong with the latest forms of (mis)communication. Lee’s characters pull readers into their love saga and expose their inboxes as never before.
An epistolary novel told entirely in emails, Blackberry texts and messages, Facebook and Match.com profiles, Save as Draft follows the quirky Izabell Chin, a wannabe-actress-turned-lawyer, and the two men who love her. There’s Peter, the preppy, reserved co-worker and loyal friend, and Marty, a guy who arrives via an alluring Match.com profile. A love triangle evolves over the course of several emails and texts as these characters struggle to say what they mean and mean what they say in an era that leaves them wondering if things left unsaid—or rather unsent—could have changed the course of their lives forever.
Girl meets boy. Girl meets second boy. OMG, WTF?
Izabell Chin is a wactress (waitress/actress) turned lawyer in Atlanta who spends her evenings searching for true love and her days rehashing every sloppy kiss, bad date, and missed connection with her friends online. True love, it seems, is hard to find. But just when Izabell thinks shes found her Prince Charming in the form of her preppy friend and co-worker Peter, she meets Marty—where else?—through an internet dating service. Told through texts, tweets, e-mails, Facebook posts, and BlackBerry messages, Save as Draft is the story of a love triangle in the era of (mis)communication, where you might find love just a click away or be left wondering if things left unsaid—or rather unsent—could have changed everything.
SAVE AS DRAFT @Readers A love triangle evolving over e-mails, texts, and Facebook messages that makes you wonder if the things we leave unsaid--or rather unsent--could change the story of our lives.

Subject: Save as Draft
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.
About the Author
Cavanaugh Lee was raised in San Francisco, and received her undergraduate degree from UCLA’s School of Theatre. After graduation, she worked steadily as a “wactress” for four years. True love (or so she thought) led her to the deep south of Mississippi, and when the relationship imploded she stuck around south and received her law degree from UNC. By day, she is a prosecutor in Savannah, Georgia and by night she is searching for true love and working on the sequel to SAVE AS DRAFT.
