While I'm Still Myself ~~GIVEAWAY~~

A passionate December love affair.
The meeting of an unexpected traveler.
The consequences of protecting a young new acquaintance.
A journey into an unknown past.

In the stories of While I’m Still Myself, Jeremy Lane eloquently describes the life changing impact of the brief encounter, showing that life and love are not shaped by an entire lifetime, but by the fleeting moments with unexpected people in unexpected places.

I must admit, I don't read short stories often, and Jeremy Lane demonstrates perfectly with his book of short stories, just exactly why I don't read them.
As soon as you start to read his stories you're hooked, and before you know it they are over and you're begging for more, just a few more pages, a few more lines, what happens next.  Every one of his stories were well thought up and beautifully written.  He certainly has a way with words, he lures you in and makes sure you're paying attention and just when you think it's going to be predictable, something jumps out and takes you in a different direction.  I was not expecting to read the words I did in so many of his stories.  I have my favorites of his collection and some I like a little less, but they were all very well written and perfectly explained in the length of the story.  They leave you wanting more and I really like that.  I wish some of them had a different ending, a "happily ever after" but I most definitely wish that Jeremy writes another short story book, or even a longer one, I would love to see a full length book of his work.  I think he is a fantastic author and has a great sense of what captivates an audience.
You would never think some of the stories would end the way they did, some abruptly, but it is a short story, it's a story inside a story.  I mean, you know there is more to the lives of the characters and if you could just see outside the little box you have it would be so much better, but that's also where the intrigue comes in because you don't know what happens in the lives of the remaining person.  The heartbreak they feel.  I don't think I have one favorite, there are a few I like, I can relate to some and I can appreciate them all.  I would definitely recommend getting a copy of this book and if you would like an autographed copy you can email Jeremy

I give this eBook of short stories 2 out of 2 thumbs up.  Fantastic work.

Fantastic work.

There will be 1 copy of While I'm Still Myself to be given away, thanks to the generosity of Jeremy Lane.  Good Luck everyone.
