We’re sure most of you know, but just in case…we are pleased to announce we will be having a prominent table at Supanova (right next to Cohesion Press), on 11th and 12th of April 2015. We have a great deal to offer:

  • Peripheral Visions by Robert Hood will be there for sale (the single volume hardcover edition – over 800 pages, and Volume 1 of the two volume version, Trade Paperback – over 400 pages). The hardcover edition will contain the wonderful artwork of Nick Stathopoulos both inside and out.
  • Peripheral Visions is officially published on the 10th April, and so this will be the Melbourne Launch of the title. Robert will be in attendance on the Saturday (11th), and will participate in two lots of book signings. Be there or be square!
  • There will still be an opportunity to sign up for the limited edition version of Peripheral Visions, clothbound. First round of shipment will be late April, early May.
  • A great discount will be available for those who purchase Volume 1 of Peripheral Visions (trade paperback) and sign up for Volume 2 (will be shipped about a month later).
  • There will be great discounts on other IFWG Publishing, and IFWG Publishing Australia titles:
    • Sealskin Coast by Snowy Mountains author Rowena Evans (young teen contemporary fantasy adventure)

News: IFWG Publishing’s Participation in Continuum X

As part of IFWG’s step-up of marketing and publicity, and simply wanting to network with the Australian writers’ community, they set up a dealer’s table at Continuum X, in Melbourne Australia (6 to 9 June 2014). Continuum is a major writer’s convention in the Australian calendar, and is host of the Chronos and Ditmar Awards (the former celebrates popular writers and fans in the State of Victoria; the Ditmar covers all of Australia).

It was a great event, and IFWG Publishing Australia (also representing IFWG Publishing, and SQ Mag ezine), felt privileged to be part of it. Gerry Huntman (Managing Director IFWG Publishing) and Steve McCracken (Marketing Director IFWG Publishing) met old friends, and made new, as well as establishing new connections and business relationships. Both considered the experience well worth the investment. They also had all the Australian imprint titles for sale, as well as a sampling of the international books.

There were many onlookers who learned something about IFWG, and there was frequent praise for our titles. The greatest interest (and purchases) was concentrated on Star Quake 1, as it has just recently been shortlisted in the Australian Shadows Awards (for best edited work), and Sealskin Coast, the latest published title. In both cases, the covers were given high praise – thank you, Jeffery Doherty for Star Quake 1, and Geoff Brown for Sealskin Coast.
