Most Recent Book Title: Online Dating: So Many Tools in the Internet Shed
Book Description: After learning her boyfriend lied about almost every aspect of his life, Erica thought she would give online dating a try. She thought it would be a great way to select men to date based on their honest profiles (heh) and to weed out the men who weren’t serious. What she didn’t realize was that a majority of the guys she encountered were not only undateable, she would have material for a blog and then this book.

Erica spent over two years wading in the Internet dating fish pond only to find…not what she was expecting. The book is based on her blog that details unromantic dates, silly messages and poor manners aplenty! Read true stories of her experiences, including outright recognition, and read her own profile and judge for yourself: Was online dating right for her? It’s an acerbic take on a personal jump into the waters. Required reading for those considering online dating.
