Cover Reveal: Faerie Apocalypse by Jason Franks

Faerie Apocalypse front cover

IFWG are very pleased to reveal the cover of Jason Franks’ upcoming dark fantasy novel, Faerie Apocalypse. “We were entranced with the originality and hard-hitting style of the novel, and it was a no-brainer to accept for publication,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing Australia.

Christian Chatman, who is no stranger to IFWG, was commissioned for the artwork – oil on canvas – and in fact painted the front and back on separate canvases to enable the very capable designer, Catherine Archer-Wills, to produce a stunning cover spread. Christian is a young artist and musician based in Arkansas, USA, who doesn’t let the challenges of autism hold him back. Catherine is a wonderful designer and artist based in the UK.


Over the centuries the Faerie Realms have drifted away from the mortal world. But for some, the Doors will open. For some, there is a Way to travel there, if they want it badly enough.

If they dream it hard enough.

In this era, only lovers, poets, and madmen can access the Realms of the Land—and for good reason.

A succession of mortals travel to Faerie: a veteran seeking beauty; a magus seeking power; an urchin seeking his wayward father; an engineer seeking meaning. These mortals bring the horrors of our age to the Land, and the Folk who live there respond in kind.


Faerie Apocalypse will be released worldwide on 15 January 2018, with a book launch in Melbourne in early February 2018 (details will come later).

Sneak Preview: The Rejects by Ali Foster

IFWG Publishing (Australia and International) prides itself for its juvenile and young teen titles, and recently we have won some significant adulation in this field – The Smoking Mirror‘s ALA Belpre Award honor title comes to mind, as well as the Brumbies series.

Keeping this in mind, and also adding our significant effort to have a strong presence in the New Zealand market, we want to share with you the beautiful cover for The Rejects by Ali Foster (Book 1 of the Ginomees Trilogy). New Zealand artist and designer Cheryl Smith created a wonderful cover capturing the characters in Ali’s book, and it also has vibrant colours – well suited to the 8-10 year old reader market (and all the way to adult, mind you).

The rejects front cover

“We’re ginomees, it says so right here. Look! G-N-O-M-E-S spells ginomees!”

A group of discarded garden ginomees turn their backs on the boredom of a lifetime in the garden and set out in search of adventure. When a good deed goes wrong, Noname and his friend Flutey are forced to fly over the Tripletoe Mountains to win back the hats stolen by a band of wild ginomees.

The Rejects will be released on 1 May 2017 and will be available from all good bookstores, electronic and print.
