IWSG and the Polar Murders series


Hello, friends!! Today is the February meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group. The group was founded by our Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh. To view list members and this month's co-hosts, or to sign up and join the group, visit the IWSG page here.

I'm excited today as I have a new book coming out later this spring! Polar Curse, the sequel to Polar Night and Polar Day, is tentatively scheduled to be released in May. I'm so happy about it as I had reached the point where I thought this book would never be completed let alone make it out in the world.

My publisher is going to re-release Polar Night and Polar Day with new covers, so I'm also thrilled about that. I can't share the covers yet but I love them and love the ideas the artist came up with. After those two are re-launched Polar Curse will be published. The three will be marketed together as the Polar Murders series.


I can't wait to be able to share the new covers and more information about the new book, but for now I am just busy doing a happy dance with Kermit. It took me so long to write this story that I can't believe it's actually coming together now.

Happy February!

  36. I am so excited for you, Julie! Wow, a Polar Murders Trilogy! Sounds like a great idea to relaunch the other books in the series too. It seems like only yesterday when Polar Night came out, and I remember that I couldn't put it down. Looking forward to seeing everything come together. It couldn't happen to a more deserving person.

  41. Julie! What great news! I am so happy for you. I know how hard it has been for you to write. I am right there with you. But completing the third book is monumental! Happy to hear you new publisher will be republishing the first two books. Wow, it was ages ago when we worked on those blurbs and covers together. Has it been that long? Time certainly is whizzing by. 2020 already. EEK! I need to take a page out of you book and finish my WIP. I have been putting off the remaining chapter of MK for far too long. But you know how life is, always getting in the way! My house in the country is finally put together enough for me to start again. Just blogging is helping me get back in the swing of things. I head back for Florida at the end of the week. I am over this cold weather. I hope to have a least one new chapter written before I go. At least I have my query ready and even created a mock cover for my platform. I fill you in on more of that later. FUN stuff coming up...until then, CONGRATS!
