Indie author Lisa Becker

The epistolary novel has been popular for over 500 years, maybe because everyone secretly loves to read other people’s mail.

Lisa Becker‘s 2011 romantic hit “Click” is an epistolary novel for the twenty-first century, a romantic chick lit story told entirely in the emails of the nearing-30-and-still-single Renee and her circle of friends.

The Indie Author Life

Much of “Click” was based on Lisa Becker’s own experience of cyberdating. How close to reality was it? She recently wrote on CupidsPulse.com:

You’ve heard of the movie Four Wedding and a Funeral? Well, the story of how I met my husband online is Four Dates and a Wedding. Those online dates yielded some valuable lessons, which I’m happy to share in order to help other online love seekers:

Date 3: Eric

After receiving an email from someone and deciding I wanted to start an online conversation, I sent a series of questions to see if we would be compatible, such as the last book he read or the favorite part of his job. I’m a huge fan of pop culture so I also asked questions to see if we would have fun bantering about various topics. Eric and I seemed to be twins separated at birth. We had so much in common that I was convinced he was perfect for me. Unfortunately for me, after our lunch date, it became quite apparent that Eric was gay. And to toss out a Seinfeld pop culture reference here: “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.” As lovely as he was and as much fun as we had together, I was convinced that once he came out of the closet, we would both be competing for the same man.

Lesson: If he sounds too good to be true, he probably is.
