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.

Review:

"Lee, a federal prosecutor by day, makes a foray into chick lit with this autobiographical novel told entirely through e-mail, text, and Web exchanges. Tedious early chapters, during which bubbly protagonist Izabell 'Izzy' Chin connects with an eHarmony hopeful named Martin, give way to a winning mix of humor and pathos. After a successful first date, Izzy dumps Martin for her best friend Peter; the two fall hard and get engaged, but the whirlwind coincides with Peter getting a demanding new job. E-mail, Facebook, or text missives show the spark fading as Peter gives in to his workaholic boss's demands and Izzy drifts back to Martin. Lee's inherently intimate format succeeds most when a character's thoughts are revealed in unsent e-mails ('save as Draft'), revealing the outcomes that could have been had more fearless actions been taken and how matters are misinterpreted and misunderstood. Lee further complicates her formal stew with comic exchanges between friends addressing online dating and the true nature of marriage with decidedly mixed results. This is an honest and oddly relatable novel that unfolds in a sometimes clunky format. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

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.

Save as Draft is a novel told completely in text messages and emails. It is the story of Izzy, a lawyer in Atlanta who joins an online dating website and meets Marty. He seems like a nice, sweet guy. After one date she dumps him in favor of her best friend, Peter. This is a fun, fast read about the pitfalls of online romance and relationships.
