Wired by Julie Garwood

The publication of Julie Garwood’s novel, Wired, has been pushed back to December 2017. It was originally scheduled to be published in July 2015.

Fans are all over the Internet asking about the postponement of the next in the Allison Trent series. One posted that Garwood emailed him this message: “I’m very sorry for the delay. Unfortunately, an unexpected health issue interrupted my writing for a while so we had to postpone WIRED.”

The Scott County Library System has cancelled Bestseller Club holds for this title until closer to the new publication date. Rest assured, we are committed to getting Julie Garwood books and will replace the holds as soon as we are able.
