Cover Reveal: Insomnia by J.R. Johansson + Giveaway (International)
Today we're hosting the cover reveal for INSOMNIA by J.R. Johansson!
Let me tell you, this cover is CREEPTASTIC. I can't wait to hear what you think of it!
Before we get to the goods, here's a message from Jenn:
Hello YABC! Welcome to the exclusive cover reveal for INSOMNIA!
I consider myself a creative person, but I cannot draw/paint/sculpt or anything of that nature. My handwriting is barely this side of legible. If I’d created a cover for my book, it probably would’ve featured stick figures hiding in shadowy hallways or darkness-filled dreams. In short, it would’ve been terrible blobs of pencil-scribbles. So, I’m very grateful to my amazing cover designer, Lisa Novak, and the genius people at Flux for crafting this gorgeously creepy cover for my debut novel, INSOMNIA. I love the eye, the kissable lips, and the way the cracks radiate out. But more than anything, I love that it conveys the perfect atmosphere for my book. My response when I first saw this was as follows:
1 – Shiver
2 – Whisper, “Whoa…”
3 – Lean in to study it closer
Feel free to do the same. :)

See what I mean?! CREEPTASTIC! EEP!
Here's what INSOMNIA's all about:
It’s been four years since I slept, and I suspect it is killing me.
Doesn't that sound fascinating? And just as creepy as the cover suggests... Now it's time for a giveaway! Jenn is giving away an ARC of INSOMNIA (when they are available) to one lucky international winner, plus a sweet prize pack!
The prize pack will include: A dream dictionary, pills for INSOMNIA (a.k.a. Tic Tacs), a bookmark, chocolates (may or may not be from Finland – YUM!) and other assorted stuff Jenn finds around her house.
Also, the winner can choose who will sign the ARC! Jenn, Jenn's cat, or Jenn's 7-year-old son. I'd personally choose the cat... :)
