A New Online Dating Book — Well Worth the Read!

Posted by


The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online 
By Julie Spira 

My new and very cool friend Julie (we actually recently met here via the Internet) has just released her super hilarious book called The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online (Morgan James Publishing.)

Julie’s book is a heartfelt romantic tell-all memoir , think Sex and the Cityin a Web 2.0 world.

I will say that while reading Julie’s book and getting to know her (wait, did I also mention that while moving past just a Internet connection and talking live on the phone with Julie about her book and my up-coming radio interview on her radio show that we figured out that we are also neighbors? Small world.)

Not only am I within walking distance and wine drinking distance to Spira’s — but as I read her timely and pertinent dating book, I laughed, I cried and could relate to it on every level as a women with a long “dating” history myself.

At this very moment I’m eating and plowing through a huge amount of work before boarding a plane to SXSW so rather than re-inventing the wheel here to let the world know about my new and very cool friend/neighbor and her super fantastic, well written book.

I’m going to go straight to the PR source and pull this “plug” straight from her media kit — Oh yes … and for sure check Julie out at CyberDatingExpert.com

About the book: 
This romantic tell-all memoir spanning over 250 online dates in almost 15 years is filled
with heartfelt, witty, and hilarious stories.  Julie Spira, a pioneer in the Internet industry,
became the first on her block to post an online dating profile. You’ll follow her journey
as she skillfully navigates the web, hoping to replace what she once thought was the love
of her life with a new Internet mate.   
The author lives a glamorous lifestyle as a single woman in Los Angeles. With a 
designer wardrobe, a mailbox filled with party invitations, and an overloaded Inbox, she
continues her cyber-quest to find “the one.” Combining her fairy-tale romances and
disappointing heartbreaks with her personal rules of “netiquette,” she provides priceless
knowledge about the most effective ways to date online. Learn from an Internet industry
pro, who as a super-successful cyber-dater has already received several marriage
proposals and a brilliant assortment of fabulous, fun dates after she had to start her life all over again.

About Jennifer Kelton

Jennifer KeltonI did not wake up one morning and say “hey I think I’d like a man use my sweater like a towel, write a candid dating book, become a dating expert, the CEO and founder of a social dating site and have three blogs.”

All of this has happened in a slow burn and here I am. The good, the bad, the mistakes, way too many tears shed to count, lots of wine and oh my goodness a huge learning curve that leaves me much of the time saying, “I’m sorry but this is all new to me.”
