THE LIFE BEYOND by Susanne Winnacker Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Posted by on July 19, 2013

Remember that time I was terrified on Twitter? When I was worried a certain author wouldn’t like the cover I designed? A traditionally published author? Well, it turns out, she LOVES the cover, as does her agent. And now, I’m excited to share with you all the cover I designed for Susanne Winnacker’s THE LIFE BEYOND, which Amazon will publish on August 21, 2013!

15,323 hours since Sherry listened to one of her father’s bedtime stories. 30,657 minutes since she heard his laughter.

Sherry’s father’s life is hanging in the balance… And if he turns into a Weeper, Sherry and Joshua know that the only way to save him lies on the other side of the fence – the barrier cutting them off from the rest of the world.

With Tyler and Rachel, they set off into the unknown, driven by the promise of a cure, and the hope of reclaiming the life they once knew. But they find that there are more than just Weepers standing in their way…

There is no going back. There is only beyond.

Susanne Winnacker

Susanne Winnacker studied law before she became a full-time writer. She lives with her husband, a dog and three bunnies in Germany. She loves coffee (in every shape and form), traveling and animals.

And now for the cover! What do you think?

  1. Love the cover! You did a fantastic job. I love working with Gimp but I don't have that kind of talent, wish I did. I haven't read The Other Life yet but would really love to read it and book #2 The Life Beyond as well. Both sound like amazing books and just right up my alley. Thanks for this wonderful chance to win a copy of book #1 The Other Life.

  2. Yep! like the cover got totally over excited and thought the rafflecopter was to win The Life Beyond!!! Duh! It must be this UK heat :( we are soo not used to it.

  3. You MADE that?!?! You're joking. I… Holy freaking cow.

    I'll admit, based on experience, freelance covers for self-pubbed books very rarely fill me with any emotion other than apathy or (horrified) amusement. But this is… Wow. I honestly would have bet money that an entire team of professional HarperCollins designers spent months on this cover. (It feels very HC to me; I don't know why.)

    This is GORGEOUS. I immediately sent a link to Christina of A Read of Fictions, the brains behind Cover Snark. I may have gushed. Because WOW.

  4. Gorgeous Hafsah!!!! I love, love, love the bold type treatment and the muted tones of the background with the pop of orange. Beautifully done:) I can't wait to read this, I'm a huge fan of Susanne's and I will absolutely read anything and everything she writes!

  5. I have to admit I was completely prepared to hate this cover since I knew it wouldn't match the first book. However, now that I've seen it I like it! Yes it doesn't match but it is still very well done. Can't wait to finally read this.

  6. I have read The Other Life and really enjoyed it! I've been waiting for the sequel and here it is!! Aaahh!! And woah, great job! I like the cover! The fence… omg… I am so excited to read The Life Beyond!
