INSOMNIA Pre-order Blog Hop!!

Today I'm really happy to host my dear friend J.R. Johansson for the debut of her fantastic thriller INSOMNIA. I've read this book and let me tell you, it's AWESOME!


 
INSOMNIA -->
Her eyes saved his life. Her dreams released his darkness.
After four years of sleeplessness, high school junior Parker Chipp can’t take much more. Every night, instead of sleeping, he enters the dreams of the last person he’s made eye contact with. If he doesn’t sleep soon, Parker will die.
Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that’s utterly addictive. But what starts out as a chance meeting turns into an obsession; Parker’s furious desire for what he needs pushes him to extremes he never thought he’d go. And when someone begins terrorizing Mia with twisted death threats, Parker’s memory blackouts leave him doubting his own innocence.

J.R. Johansson: 

I’ve had a fascination with dreams ever since I was a little girl. In elementary school, I had a recurring nightmare that aliens were attacking our house and I was running through it in the dark. Lights flashed through the open windows, the curtains blew in the wind. I was alone and couldn’t find anyone. I heard grinding metal and gears outside as I searched for my family. I got to my mom's room and finally found my big brother sitting next to the dresser. I curled up next to him, and held his hand, but when I looked up at his face, I saw him staring blankly ahead and knew he was dead. The door to the room swung open, banging against the wall, and I woke up.

It was the same every time and I had it at least once a week for over a year. Even remembering it now gives me a shiver. It seemed weird to me that I never actually saw the aliens, but I still knew they were there and I knew they were coming for me. When writing INSOMNIA, I figured it was time for me to take on my own nightmare. Addie has a dream halfway through where she’s in a park, with a heavy mist and she hears grinding metal somewhere that she can’t see…but she doesn’t run, and she is confident that whatever happens next, she can handle it. I’ve never had the nightmare again, but if I did, I hope I’d be more like Addie this time and kick some dream-alien's trash.

Thanks Jenn! So now here's your chance to win a fabulous HD NOOK! Good luck!!
