If you haven't heard of Addison Westlake, you probably haven't heard of the term 'Indie Chick-lit'. Her debut, “Christmas in Wine Country” released in November 2012, was a bestseller on Amazon for six weeks in contemporary romance, women’s fiction, humorous fiction and humor with approximately 25,000 copies downloaded.
Addison announced recently that her long-awaited book, Facebook Jeanie, would be released in both kindle and paperback on the 1st of October.
Though this books seems like it's being released around Christmas era, you can be assured that this is no seasonal read... unless Facebook in December is more appealing to you than sitting and dining with family.
31-year-old Clara is in a steady relationship—with Facebook. Every night after her depressing bureaucratic job (so much for saving the world), after coming home to her empty apartment Clara settles down with a pint of ice cream for some good, old-fashioned Facebook stalking. It’s her college boyfriend, The One Who Got Away. He now has a perfect marriage, perfect house, perfect life—everything she could have had if she hadn’t been so, so stupid.
But, wait. Jeanie from Facebook shows up at Clara’s job. There’s a new app they’re beta-testing and Clara’s perfect for it. That night she clicks on it and… nothing happens. But the next morning when Clara wakes up at noon, hung over, listening to her roommate blow-drying her hair and singing “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It”, she realizes she’s back in college. With the chance to do it all over again.
Back in the world of frat parties, BFFs, and long-suffering, overlooked lab partners, join Clara as she discovers what it really means to hit the reset button on life. What could possibly go wrong? And, this time, can she get it right?
With a cover like that, I am so fired up to get to it right away. Stay tuned to check out my pre-release review.
