"Polar Night" Cover Reveal


Since this is the first time I have the honor to reveal a cover at the Dragon Cave, and it is also Julie's first novel, it deserves something special. The dwarves got all excited because the 49ers won yesterday (Go 49ers!!). So dwarves have too much free time, too much powder dust and too many matches. We all love fireworks and we thought on a big production for this event. The Dragon Band is not ready (dwarves are still arguing over the instruments) but we spare no powder to make this a flashy reveal.

So here it is for all of you, "Polar Night" Cover!

*Ovation*



Book Blurb: 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.

    2. I liked it too and wanted it above but thought the cover then would be too small. But then I remembered it was my page and I wasn't limited to one picture, hehehe.
