Read full description of the books:
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 days 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.

Read information about the authorAlisa Steinberg is a novelist, poet, and blogger, and back in the day, she was a practicing psychotherapist (and now she frequently thinks she's the insane person in the room). She lives in Manhattan but doesn't own a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes or hangout at Bungalow 8 like Carrie Bradshaw (although she wouldn't be adverse to either). Steinberg is a lover of great literature, good jokes, romantic movies, and the frequent shopping excursion for fabulous clothes at bargain prices (where she doesn't have to fist fight a fellow shopper for a Juicy Couture sweater). She's the author of "Text Me, a Tale of Love and Technology" and "Notes from Ellen Wasserfeldman" (a comedic novel, the first of a trilogy, due out in the Fall of 2010). Steinberg has been a writer since the age she first played hopscotch (which wasn't yesterday).
She is a weekly blogger for skirt.com, has been published at More.com (More magazine's web site), and has had her poetry published in the Literary & Arts Magazine "Children, Churches and Daddies," and "Poet's Haven."
