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.
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 witty and page-turning look at dating mores in the internet age. It’s also filled with heart. After a bad e-harmony date, don’t despair! Come home, curl up with a glass of Cabernet, and read this book by Cavanaugh Lee. She’s great company and she’ll never de-friend you.” —Amy Sohn, author of Prospect Park West
“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. I haven't wanted a guy to hit ‘send’ this badly since college—a truly good time!” —Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, authors of the New York Times bestselling The Nanny Diaries
"A quick, fun debut novel involving commitment avoidance, meet-cutes and falling in love in the electronic age." --Kirkus Reviews
