“If you believe in destiny like I do, and you think there’s even a remote possibility we’re meant to be together, then find me I’m yours.” —Mr. WTF

In one sentence — one serendipitous moment — everything Mags Marclay, an offbeat, wry, 24-year-old struggling artist living in L.A., has ever known is forever changed as she is led on a treasure hunt to find her soul mate.

Find Me I’m Yours is a highly entertaining, unconventional virtual page-turner. Become immersed in Mags’s world through original artwork, hand-written lists, graphics, and Instagram photos within the book. You can go even deeper into the Find Me I’m Yours universe by clicking on embedded links leading to interactive content that’s expertly woven through the novel, including:

• Original rom-com style VIDEOS that star the handsome stranger Mags dubs “Mr. WTF,” who gives clues to the hunt.
• Thirty-three unique, custom-designed WEBSITES that further the narrative, blur the lines between fiction and reality, and offer endless ways for you to enjoy additional original content, including reality and comedy series featuring A-list talent.
• OPPORTUNITIES for you to share your own content (artwork, stories, songs, apologies, wishes, etc.), interact, connect, and personally engage with the story.

This revolutionary CLICK LIT® novel was conceived from the get-go as an ever-expanding, multi-platform entertainment experience. Created, written, and designed by Hillary Carlip, and co-created, directed, and produced by Golden Globe-winning and Emmy-nominated TV comedy writer/producer/director Maxine Lapiduss, Find Me I’m Yours is a game changer in the way that stories are told and experienced.
Find Me I’m Yours is the story of Mags Marclay, a struggling artist living in LA, who wants nothing more than to find her soul mate and fall in love. When Mags discovers a video tape from a man who is also looking for his soul mate, she embarks on a treasure hunt that he sets up in hopes of finding him.

Through the novel we follow Mags on her journey to find the man who may very well be her forever. The novel includes interactive websites, videos and Instagram photos to aid Mags and the readers along the journey with clues to find this mystery man.

But not only is the story about Mags finding her soul mate via the treasure hunt, but it’s also a story about Mags finding herself. She discovers so many things about herself on this journey, and it was interesting to see the changes that she went through. You had to feel for Mags for all the things that she was going through, but that didn’t stop me from cheering her on.

The storyline for the book was really creative. I really enjoyed the interactive parts of the novel; the pictures, videos and website links really made the story stand out even more. I especially liked seeing the pictures for all the things Mags saw along the way.  Everything wraps up pretty nicely at the end of the book, although I was left wondering about a few things that happened in the book. The book was also a really quick read; I read it in just a few hours time.

Overall; Fans of romance and chick-lit novels will definitely enjoy this interactive story. Not only was the story interesting in itself, but the interactive parts definitely made it even more fun to read.

Happy Reading!
