REVEALING RIGHT CLICK.

Love. Marriage.  Infidelity. Parenthood. Crises of identity. Death. Cupcakes. The themes in Right Click, the third and final instalment in the Click series, couldn't be more pressing for this group of friends as they navigate through their 30's. Another six months have passed since we last eavesdropped on the hilarious, poignant and often times inappropriate email adventures of Renee and friends. As the light-hearted, slice of life story continues to unfold, relationships are tested and some need to be set "right" before everyone can find their "happily ever after."

-Right Click by Lisa Becker.

They say there is an exception to every rule, right? And Lisa Becker's 'Click' series of books proved to be one of those exceptions.

Not normally a big fan of the letter/diary/email message format of writing the first two books in the series, 'CLICK: AN ONLINE LOVE STORY' and 'DOUBLE CLICK' proved such an enjoyable revelation that I'm really looking forward to the release of .....




Available from stockists Mid-May both here and in the US, in the meantime I'd like to share this extract from a previous interview I did with Lisa who can also be found on .....





I first met my husband while wearing my pajamas.  Really!  No, we weren't at some kinky singles party.  I was sitting comfortably in my apartment and he was hanging out in his.  But, I will never forget his email introduction via an online dating service, which invited me to check out his profile.  It was sweet, endearing and intriguing enough for me to log on to learn more about him.  After a week of emails, followed by a week of phone calls, we met for our first date - a traditional dinner and movie outing.  Even before I opened the door to greet him, I knew he was "the one."  Considering he lived 30 miles away, I'm not certain our paths would have typically crossed.  But after nearly 13 years together - including nearly 10 years of marriage (which in Los Angeles is apparently no small feat!) and two beautiful daughters, I have no doubt he is my soul mate. 

After my now-husband and I met online, I was recalling some of the hilarious experiences that I had during the whole online dating experience.  How could I forget the guy who started every story (no joke!) with “My buddies and I were out drinking one night.”   I decided to capture some of them in writing and, from there and based loosely on my own experiences, my novel Click: An Online Love Story emerged.  The entire story is told in emails between our heroine, Renee Greene, her three best friends and the gentlemen suitors she meets online.  The format felt like a modern way to tell the story that fit the topic, and allowed readers to develop an intimate relationship with the characters.

Clearly, I’m a big fan of online dating and find it to be a useful tool for young professionals who are busy working and finding it difficult to make the right connection at the gym, bar, coffee shop or grocery aisle.  I say, people today are “married” to their cell phones and laptops, so why not use that technology to really get married, right?

What a fascinating premise! I met my husband online, too. I think it's becoming the norm now. It's so hard to meet people once you're no longer in school!

Cherie Reich said...

Great premise! And the cover for Right Click is adorable! Sounds like a fun series!

I wonder how many relationships started on the internet. It's great that it worked out and that you feel you are with your soul mate!

I've heard good things about these! And I really like the format. I've always loved "letter books" and the like.

Interesting premise. So glad that you were able to meet your soulmate that way!

Karen said...

I didn't realize that you had read this Tracy. I really enjoy this series too. Somehow the emails work and you get a full picture.

Thanks for reposting this - I missed it the first time around.

I remember when you read the first book in this series and how much you enjoyed it. It is fun when a book turns out to be better than we expect! This series does sound like fun and I enjoyed reading about the author and her online dating experience. :)

I'm a big fan of the letter/diary/email message format, so not sure why I haven't read these books yet. Need to pick these up since the third book is coming out! Thanks for the reminder!

Sounds like a good book, I like books in epistolary format.
It's interesting how many couples meet online now, it's the norm.

I tend to really like books based on letters, diaries, emails, etc. Come to think of it, I think that there is a book out there based entirely on tweets. I also read somewhere that the internet age had brought this type of novel back into popularity.

While I've been out of the dating scene for many years, I can imagine the internet would be fertile ground for meeting potential partners. I know I've certainly gained some interesting friends that way!
