Honest, Romantic Novel Is Based on Author's Own Passionate Internet Affair

Share Article

Author Jack Eadon releases a second edition and a new book on tape of "Lacey's Day," a very personal and romantic novel about a passionate, online relationship.

The recently released second edition and brand new audio tape of author Jack Eadon's popular romantic novel "Lacey's Day" (ISBN 9780975330098, Eloquence Press, 2008) tell the story of a passionate Internet romance, based on the author's own five-month "affair of the heart" with a woman he met online.

The leading lovers in "Lacey's Day" are Ted and Lacey: characters Eadon based entirely on himself and the woman he met online ten years ago. But the book's exciting climax and ending differ greatly from Eadon's own experience. While "Lacey's Day" includes a romantic in-person meeting between the lovers, in real life, Eadon never met his "Lacey."

"In the novel, I wrote how it might have worked out had things gone well," Eadon says. "Writing 'Lacey's Day' was a way to take a very intense experience and honor it… and the 'what if' quality of it is certainly romantic." The loved shared between Ted and Lacey is a deeply intense passion, much like the erotic romance between Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep in "Bridges of Madison County."

In "Lacey's Day," Ted Hewitt decides to look for love online after his would-be bride stands him up at the altar. He finds everything he was looking for and more in Lacey, a young Chinese woman adjusting to life in America. A romantic at heart, Ted falls hard and fast for the sweet and innocent Lacey, meeting her needs for a mentor and lover.

Eadon gives life to Ted and Lacey's relationship by writing it as close to reality as possible; many of the e-mails in the book are the exact e-mails Eadon sent and received during his own romance. This incredibly honest and vulnerable approach makes "Lacey's Day" an exceptionally realistic and compelling read.

Eadon says he hopes readers will be inspired by the intense love between Ted and Lacey and be encouraged to create honest love and desire in their own relationships. Though Eadon's own story is one of lost love, "Lacey's Day" will delight readers with its romantic, suspenseful, Fitzgerald-like ending.
