INSOMNIA Release Day!

It's finally release day for Insomnia and I feel like I'm walking in a dream. It's all so surreal and I can't find sufficient words for it, so I'll just say thank you. Thank you to the Luckies for welcoming me in and holding my hand and thank you to everyone else for all the love and support.

May all your dreams be sweet.

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.

Awesome Authors Blurb Awesomely:

“The perfect blend of everything I love in a story. I hope a sequel comes soon!” –James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of THE MAZE RUNNER

“Completely unputdownable. I’ve decided to nickname Johansson: Scary McScarypants, because she spooked me in all the best ways.” –Carrie Harris, author of BAD TASTE IN BOYS

“Cleverly written and dangerously dark, Insomnia will take you to the brink of insanity. A must-read for thriller and romance fans alike.”—Elana Johnson, author of POSSESSION

“A riveting story of terror and despair that will keep you up long past your bedtime.”—Jennifer Bosworth, author of STRUCK

Critics are Less Than Critical:

Kirkus - "The premise combines with the tension resulting from Parker’s psychological quandary to keep pulses pounding.
Johansson, writing from Parker’s point of view, scatters clues and red herrings about. Parker’s plight will convince readers, although they will not know if he’s innocent or psychotic until the final pages. The ending sets up the sequel in what promises to be an interesting new series."

ForeWord - "Supernatural young adult thriller creates a real sense of tension, anticipation, and dread.
J. R. Johansson’s debut novel has an intriguing, original premise and an engaging first-person narrator/protagonist...Johansson’s first book lays the groundwork for an intriguing series based on an original premise."
