Coming soon from Lisa McKay

I can't tell you how excited I am about fellow Aussie Lisa McKay's second book, and hang on to your hats, it's not even fiction!!  Lisa has written a memoir of her long distance romance that I know will be funny, moving, thought provoking and refreshingly honest :)  Love at the Speed of Email will be available in digital format and paperback this June but I had to share it with you now!

While you are waiting, get your hands on her debut novel, My Hands Came Away Red, an exceptional novel that I have reviewed here. Bear in mind it is an excellent book club selection, too.

Love at the Speed of Email by Lisa McKay

Lisa looks as if she has it made. She has turned her nomadic childhood and forensic psychology training into a successful career as a stress management trainer for humanitarian aid workers. She lives in Los Angeles, travels the world, and her first novel has just been published to some acclaim. But as she turns 31, Lisa realizes that she is still single, constantly on airplanes, and increasingly wondering where home is and what it really means to commit to a person, place, or career. 

When an intriguing stranger living on the other side of the world emails her out of the blue, she must decide whether she will risk trying to answer those questions. Her decision will change her life.
