about me

Alisa Dana Steinberg is a novelist, poet ,and blogger, and back in the day, she was a practicing psychotherapist (and now she frequently thinks she's the insane person in the room). She lives in Manhattan but doesn't own a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes or hangout at Bungalow 8 like Carrie Bradshaw (although she wouldn't be adverse to either). Steinberg is a lover of great literature, good jokes, romantic movies, and the frequent shopping excursion for fabulous clothes at bargain prices (where she doesn't have to fist fight a fellow shopper for a Juicy Couture sweater). She's the author of "Text Me, a Tale of Love and Technology" and "Notes from Ellen Wasserfeldman" (a comedic novel, the first of a trilogy, due out in the Fall of 2010). Steinberg has been a writer since the age she first played hopscotch (which wasn't yesterday). Her website is at www.alisadanasteinberg.com

Alisa Dana Steinberg

What happens when a small-town girl who's clueless about technology moves to the all-wired-up and wireless world of NYC? It could only mean trouble ...


Small-town girl Penelope McAdams has one huge problem - she doesn't know a thing about technology - and when she moves to the all-wired-up and wireless world of New York City, where she makes the mistake of buying her first Blackberry minus the text messaging service (the modus operandi of communications for the Manhattan social scene), she's in for trouble ... In the romantic comedy "Text Me, A Tale of Love and Technology," Penelope's failed love life causes her to go on a quest to recover lost and important texts sent from her male suitors, resulting in a series of mishaps with everything from MP3 players to gaming equipment and two very different men who compel her to choose between the truth and a lie.

With a tie-in to the film "It's a Wonderful Life" and its main character, George Bailey, who Penelope shares similarities with in her yearning to start anew outside of a small town, this is a humorous story of self-discovery and love.

To find out how to purchase "Text Me, A Tale of Love and Technology" in eBook edition (available in the UK and U.S.) or in paperback (at present, available in U.S.), go to www.alisadanasteinberg.com

Hi Wanda, Just backed your book - rightfully deserved. You had me at your summarization/pitch. I had tears in my eyes from the beginning - I used to work as a psychotherapist at a domestic violence shelter, and I spent some years counseling abused children and sometimes their families. I've seen ... view book

Hi Columbia, Read your summarization and the first part of your book, and really liked it - I really love how you set this up, I like your style, and I'm always up for an inspirational book since there's so much dark literature out there. Backed your book! Hope you're enjoying mine! Cheers:... view book
