News: New Cover for Paper Magic

With the increased interest in our children’s titles, and the huge triple-launch event in Canberra this Saturday, we decided it was time for a freshen-up of one of our first kid’s books: Paper Magic, by Jeffery E. Doherty.

New Cover for e-book

Paper Magic is a story about finding courage, facing challenges and overcoming self-doubt. It is about the power of friendship and discovering you don’t need magic to be worthwhile. The park calls to Marina. It tugs at a place deep in her chest but the thought of meeting the children who play there sends her into a breathless panic.

This beautiful story deals with issues of bullying, anxiety and being different, issues increasingly relevant to children of all ages. The story will delight any reader who has ever felt awkward, lonely or anxious.

You can purchase the print title through any good online or bricks and mortar retailer, but also through our print store.

If you want an ebook, visit Amazon.

Against The Elements

News: Release of A Magpie Called Will

IFWG Publishing is happy to announce the release of the Australian version of A Magpie Called Will, a children’s fantasy by Western Australian author, Peter Rondel, and New Zealand illustrator, Frances Hutt.

IFWG released the US version a few years ago, when the Australian Imprint did not exist, and this new release is the final step in transitioning a few Australian-oriented titles to where they better sit. IFWG is particularly pleased that an Australian story, largely set in Australia, is finally published in the appropriate vernacular. The cover design is by the talented Elizabeth Lang of EL Design (Canada), and internal block design was handled by the very capable Geoff Brown (Cohesion Editing and Proofing).

The print and ebook versions of A Magpie Called Will will be out soon through all good online stores, but the print version can be bought now through the publisher’s website.
