News: Sneak Peek at Rowena Evans’ Forthcoming Release

IFWG Publishing Australia’s last release for this quarter will be Rowena Evans‘ young teen/young adult novel, Drums and Power Lines. It was a pleasure to work with Rowena on this project, one where an absolutely unique contemporary fantasy story blossomed, and where Rowena’s artistic skills were set in motion to create, again, a unique product.

We look forward to seeing her work officially launched at Harry Hartog Bookshop in the ACT on 13th February, alongside Jeffery Doherty’s Olivia Stone and the Trouble with Trixies, and Rolf Svensen’s The Adventures of Teddy and Karl. We will also have the pleasure of Paula Boer attending with her successful Brumbies series.

It must have been the drumming that woke him. Why did he feel so uneasy? Phil was gone.

“I thought you’d never see me.”

Ivan took a step back, tripped, and sprawled on the ground. A girl was perched on a small platform near the top of the pole.

“We have to go. Now.”

Ivan wants to get away from his life and the small town where he lives, and finds himself in a place where everything is disturbingly the same, and yet unnervingly different. Cassie thinks Ivan is clueless, while he thinks she’s the prettiest – and most annoying – girl he’s ever met.

Meanwhile the sensitive Reenie and the enigmatic Phil have other complications to untangle. Ivan, Cassie, Reenie and Phil will have to do a lot of thinking, motorbike riding and taking the unexpected in their stride, and will need to draw on courage they didn’t know they had, before they can find what is lost and get to where they want to be.

An adventure/fantasy story for high school aged readers to adults.

 

Drums and Power Lines will be released over the next week.

Welcome to IFWG Publishing Australia’s New Site!

IFWG Publishing Australia is still a very new imprint of IFWG Publishing, whose task is to primarily publish Australian work for Australian readers. We are solely managed by Australians and all profits are kept in Australia. We trade for, and represent IFWG Publishing, but are owned and managed by SQ Mag, a company incorporated in Australia, and best known for its eZine by the same name.

This site is a work in progress – under construction – and may end up looking very different.

We have emphasised publishing in our first months, and already have titles for sale, and this site is needed to help keep marketing and commerce under control.

Watch this space, visit regularly. Lots of goodies will come up soon.
