A couple of weeks ago I read and reviewed Corrupted Classics, part of Harper Collins Australia 'Project Flash Pub'. Harper Collins staff were separated into teams, given a small budget and asked to produce an original digital publication or product to release into the market to gain first hand experience in digital publishing. Each team was asked to create, research, cost and produce their product with the winning team determined by who generates the most revenue for the business.

URL Love is the second project released, a collection of ten short stories exploring lust, love and romance in the digital age. From sweet and funny to racy and hot these are glimpses into modern day relationships encouraged by twitter, Facebook, email and text messaging.

The first story, Digital Intercourse by Jaquie Underdown, involves colleagues flirting via twitter and inter office messaging which leads to a steamy encounter in a locked office and is sure to get you in the right frame of mind to enjoy the collection.

The best line comes from Blast From the Past by Ros Baxter as thirty something year old Ivy, recently abandoned by her husband who her accused her of becoming 'small', nervously decides to join Facebook. "Well bugger him and the whore he rode out on", she thinks as she sets up her profile and discovers the fire still burning for an old flame.

In M@tchmaker, Rose Smith discovers its a small world after all when after drunkenly searching for the hot stranger that lives in her building it turns out he was only a tweet away. The author, Melanie Seward, admits she in fact has a crush on anonymous man in her building, though she is yet to start knocking on doors.

In fact many of he authors admit there is a kernel of truth in their contributions to the compilation including Vanessa Barneveld (The Tweetest Thing) and Therese Raft (Unexpected Connections).

Whether you are looking for love (or it is snoring next to you) URL Love is an entertaining read. Easy to devour in one sitting, or pick up and put down as the mood strikes, treat yourself with this sassy, sexy collection of stories. ( )
