Cover Reveal: POLAR NIGHT by Julie Flanders


It is my pleasure to present
Polar Night
by
my friend and fellow thriller author
coming 02.07.13
from

When Detective Danny Fitzpatrick leaves his hometown of Chicago and moves to Fairbanks, Alaska he wants nothing more than to escape the violence and heartbreak that left his life in pieces. Numbed by alcohol and the frozen temperatures of an Alaskan winter, Danny is content with a dead-end job investigating Fairbanks' cold cases. That all changes when a pretty blond woman goes missing on the winter solstice, and Danny stumbles upon some surprising connections between her disappearance and that of another Fairbanks woman three years earlier. Forced out of his lethargy, Danny sets out to both find the missing woman and solve his own cold case.

The investigation points Danny towards Aleksei Nechayev, the handsome and charming proprietor of an old asylum turned haunted tourist attraction in the Arctic town of Coldfoot. As he tries to find a link between Nechayev and his case, Danny's instinct tells him that Nechayev is much more than what he seems.

Danny has no idea that Nechayev is hiding a secret that is much more horrifying than anything he could ever have imagined. As his obsession with finding the missing women grows, Danny finds his own life in danger. And when the truth is finally revealed, the world as he knows it will never be the same.


Besides being all-around AWESOME, Julie Flanders is a librarian and a freelance writer who has written for both online and print publications. She is an avid animal lover and shares her home in Cincinnati, Ohio with her dog and cat. Polar Night, a suspense thriller with a supernatural twist, is her first novel. It will be published by Ink Smith Publishing on February 7, 2013.

On a personal note, I'd like to thank all of you who voted for my book on the various Goodreads lists last week.  Because of your help, THE MISTAKEN climbed higher on all 14 lists, especially
Best Romantic SuspenseThrillers You Must Read, and Thrillers.

As a result, over 155 readers added
The Mistaken to their TBR lists in the
last day and a half alone,
over 755 total. 

And I haven't even announced my January giveaway yet.
(BTW, it starts next Monday, 01.28.13)

So thank you all!  And please let me know if I can ever return the favor!

Hi Julie and Nancy! I'll check this out. I do have a weakness for stories set in Alaska.

Natasha Hanova said...

Great cover, Julie. Wishing your great success with your book!

Andrew Leon said...

I think your book is somewhere around 5th or 6th on my list of to-read ebooks. I'm working to it.

I need to get my stuff onto some lists, but, there are so many lists, I've found it rather daunting to figure out which ones. I did put Shadow Spinner on a best serial list.

Congrats, Nancy. Sounds like you surpassed some targets. Wishing Julie well with Polar Nights when it is released.

I saw this cover somewhere else this morning and thought it was awesome. I still do. What a great storyline. And it takes place just up the road... about 1500 miles. Haha.

Seriously, it sounds great.
