Surprisingly witty ... an engaging read. In clever fashion, author Alisa Dana Steinberg has crafted a touching, timely love story set against the backdrop of the Techno Revolution ..." Kendra Carroll, APEX REVIEWS
Small-town girl Penelope McAdams has one huge problem - she doesn't know a thing about technology - and when she moves to the all-wired-up and wireless world of New York City, where she makes the mistake of buying her first Blackberry minus the text messaging service (the modus operandi of communications for the Manhattan social scene), she's in for trouble ... In the romantic comedy "Text Me, A Tale of Love and Technology," Penelope's failed love life causes her to go on a quest to recover lost and important texts sent from her male suitors, resulting in a series of mishaps with everything from MP3 players to gaming equipment and two very different men who compel her to choose between the truth and a lie.

Aspiring to become an upwardly-mobile Manhattan woman, Penelope receives technology lessons from Ted Hollis, the anti-social-techno-geek who retrieves her texts, and begins a relationship with Luke Carson, the handsome shipping entrepreneur who texts her for a night out on the town. All seems to be going well, but Ted needs more time than expected to teach her that an Apple Store isn't a fruit stand and how to work an iPod and GPS locator when she can't even work a simple coffee machine, so she finds herself spending a majority of her afternoons and evenings with both men: Luke, the type of man she's always dreamt of, and Ted, the type of man she never desired … But when Ted survives her knocking him unconscious with a Wii Remote, and endures her frantic, midnight phone calls when she can't turn on the HDTV, does Penelope have a change of heart?

With a tie-in to the film "It's a Wonderful Life" and its main character, George Bailey, who Penelope shares similarities with in her yearning to start anew outside of a small town, this is a humorous story of self-discovery and love. http://www.amazon.com/Text-Tale-Love-Technology-ebook/dp/B003VYC4XI/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2

Welcome to KindleBoards, Alisa, and congratulations on your book!

Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome but self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . follow the directions there to be listed. :)

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
