Pub date + giveaway!

The day has finally come! THE OTHER LIFE hits shelves in the US today!

3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life. 98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world

Sherry has lived with her family in a sealed bunker since things went wrong up above. But when they run out of food, Sherry and her dad must venture outside. There they find a world of devastation, desolation...and the Weepers: savage, mutant killers.

When Sherry's dad is snatched, she joins forces with gorgeous but troubled Joshua - an Avenger, determined to destroy the Weepers.

But can Sherry keep her family and Joshua safe, when his desire for vengeance threatens them all?


The Telegraph recommended THE OTHER LIFE for teens who loved The Hunger Games! Here's part of what they said:  
And Susanne Winnacker’s The Other Life, set in LA at a future time in which the Weepers, mutated by a strain of rabies, have begun to hunt humans, is especially memorable. The best parts, though, are the domestic early sections, reminiscent of Emma Donoghue’s adult novel Room, which show up the tensions of a family stuck in a bunker for 1,141 days and on the brink of starvation. 

THE OTHER LIFE was also an Editor's Pick of the Month on Amazon UK in February!
I'm so excited!
To celebrate I'm giving away two signed hardcovers to two lucky winners.
Just leave a comment with your email address and you're entered into the contest. It's international and ends this Friday, the 18th at 3pm EST. I'll announce the winners the same day.
If you want to earn extra entries:
Tweet about the giveaway or The Other Life's book birthday. + 1 extra entry
Post about it on facebook + 1 extra entry
Pin the cover on pinterest + 1 extra entry
Blog about it + 2 extra entries

Good luck!
