About this item
About the Book"Dumped by his fiancâee, not only is Miles couch-surfing across New York City, but downsizing has forced him to set up shop at a cafâe. Also, he no longer believes in love. Not a good look in his line of work...Do not present a "perfect" image. No one will trust it. Nor should they. Zoey's eccentric L.A. boss sent her packing to New York to "grow." But beneath her chill Cali demeanor, Zoey's terrified to venture beyond the cafâe across the street...Think of your quirks - such as cosplaying B-movies from the 1980s-as a "Future Honesty." Save these as a reward only for those who prove worthy. The only thing Miles and Zoey share is their daily battle for Cafâe Crudite's last day-old biscotti. They don't know they're both ghostwriting "authentic" client profiles for rival online dating services. Nope, they have absolutely nothing in common...Until they meet anonymously online, texting on the clock"--
Book SynopsisWith lots of fun banter and quippy dialogue, Ghosting: A Love Story is for readers looking for the wit and heart of Mhairi McFarlane and Sophie Kinsella with the romance of You've Got Mail plus a savvy digital take on modern love a la Alisha Rai.
"A sweet, genuinely funny, banter-filled delight of a rom-com."
--Kerry Winfrey, author of Waiting for Tom Hanks Online Dating Ghostwriting Rules to Live by:
- Do not present a "perfect" image. No one will trust it. Nor should they. - Think of your quirks--such as cosplaying B-movies from the 1980s--as a "Future Honesty." Save these as a reward only for those who prove worthy. - Never remind the client you're their voice. Once you've attracted a good match, let the client take over ASAP. Dumped by his fiancée, not only is Miles couch-surfing across New York City, but downsizing has forced him to set up shop at a local café. Also, he no longer believes in love. Not a good look in his line of work...helping people find love as a ghostwriter for a failing dating site. Zoey's eccentric L.A. boss sent her packing to New York to "grow." But beneath her chill Cali demeanor, Zoey's anxiety makes her terrified to venture beyond the café across the street into the big city... Finding themselves competing for space at Café Crudite, the only thing Miles and Zoey think they share is their daily battle for last day-old biscotti and a mutual dislike of each other. They don't know they're both writers, creating "authentic" profiles for rival online dating services. They think they have absolutely nothing in common. . . . until they meet anonymously online while pretending to be their clients and sparks fly. As they become more deeply connected online, their mistaken identities get more complicated when their clients experience a dating disaster IRL. Once they find out their lives have crossed in more ways than one, will their online connection be the real thing--or vanish into the ether?
