Teaser Tuesday: Even If I Am


Knowing my pleasure in reading your emails, and writing my own, I wondered if we could ‘keep it simple.’ . . . Only three days and I was falling. Falling hard.

-- Even If I Am by Chasity Glass

GIVEAWAY: Sign up here for a chance to win one of three copies of Even If I Am.  Winners will have the choice of a paper ARC or the enhanced e-book version. 

BACK OF THE BOOK:
At the tail end of a five-year relationship, Chasity thought she knew what love was – until she meets Anthony, the handsome video editor she works with in a busy Hollywood office. Sparks fly as the two quickly become flirty co-workers, sneaking in numerous e-mails, phone calls, and lunch breaks together.

As their bond grows, we follow their blossoming relationship through heartfelt e-mailed conversations. Soon, they are writing six to ten e-mails a day to each other. They write back and forth about everything and anything, getting to know each other and hiding nothing about themselves. One e-mail leading to the next the two fall in love.

Then just as love begins, Anthony is diagnosed with stage 3 cancer.

The story is more than a memoir. It is a conversation between Anthony and Chasity against the backdrop of his diagnosis. even if i am. includes personal e-mails, blog posts, audio interviews, images, and music about their tenderhearted, often humorous, yet always emotional year together.

What began, as a genuine friendship became the love story of their lives.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Sounds very sad, especially since it's not fiction. Nice review.

Wow! Sounds like an amazing love story.

Sounds like the kind of book that should come with a box of tissues! Great concept, too.

HL: It does sound sad! That's not my review, though -- it's from the back cover of the book!

Tea: A tear-jerker of a love story!

Jessica: No kidding! Thanks for leaving your link.

Wow this sounds like it would be a tear jerker for sure. I will have to add to my TBR list. Who doesn't like a good cry now and then?

This sounds like an awesome book and a memorable love story, especially since it's true.
My Teaser is from A VERY SOUTHERN AFFAIR.
