Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley - a fresh and funny debut about the struggles of keeping in touch, keeping it real and keeping it together - is published in the UK today by Text Publishing.
Cassie and Sid Sunday, once as close as sisters could be, have drifted apart. Cassie’s struggling as a stay-at-home mother to twin toddlers in Manhattan, while Sid lives an expat’s life of leisure in far-off Singapore. It doesn’t help that Sid spurns social media while Cassie is addicted to her iPhone.
So when Sid suggests they reconnect the old-fashioned way—through real, handwritten letters—Cassie is on board. Intimate and honest, their correspondence becomes a kind of mutual confessional and renews their bond. But the modern compulsion to share everything lands the sisters in trouble when the letters wind up in the one place you’d never, ever want them: the Internet. Now, they must learn to deal with the consequences of their private thoughts becoming all too public.
Lisa Beazley has worked in journalism and public relations for more than fifteen years. She hails from Toledo, Ohio and currently lives in Singapore. Keep Me Posted is her first novel.
