Hot off the press, we are pleased to reveal the cover for Deb Sheldon’s next novel with IFWG, Contrition. Marvellous work by Stoker winning illustrator, Greg Chapman.
In her late teens, Meredith Berg-Olsen had had all the makings of a runway model. Now in her late forties, after everything she had been through – including horrors that John could only guess at – she looked bloodless instead of pale, skeletal instead of slender, more dead than alive…
John Penrose has two secrets. One is the flatmate he keeps hidden from the world: his high-school sweetheart, Meredith. His other secret is the reason he feels compelled to look after her.
Contrition is a horror story with noir undertones and an atmosphere of mounting dread.
The festive season deserves another piece of good news!
IFWG Publishing Australia is very pleased to add a third Deborah Sheldon title to its catalogue: Contrition, a horror novel with noir undertones and an atmosphere of mounting dread. (It is actually her fourth title with us – she has signed a contract with us for a new collection of her short fiction, to be released in 2019).
Contrition will be released in mid 2018: more details will be provided in the new year.
Deborah Sheldon, a professional writer from Melbourne, Australia, writes across the darker spectrum of crime, noir, and horror. Deb’s short stories have appeared in many well-regarded literary magazines and anthologies. Her published fiction includes short story collections, novellas, and novels. Other writing credits include television scripts, feature articles, radio plays, award-winning medical writing, and non-fiction books for Reed Books and Random House.
IFWG Australia is pleased to announce the acquisition of a collection of 33 short stories by Deborah Sheldon, to be published in Q3 2018. The collection has no title at this stage.
“I’m excited by this project,” stated Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of the publishing house, “because we have Deborah’s latest fiction collected in ‘Perfect Little Stitches and Other Stories’, and this acquisition distills the very best of her earlier dark fiction. We also decided to add a bonus two original pieces. We have an amazing relationship with Deborah and it makes perfect sense to publish the complete continuum of her dark fiction for reader enjoyment.”
More details of this collection will be forthcoming in early 2018.
Deborah Sheldon’s long-anticipated short fiction collection, Perfect Little Stitches and Other Stories, will be published early in Q3 2017, but we couldn’t resist giving her fans a quick peek at the current version of her front cover design.
The atmospheric, creepy art is by the wonderful artist, Luke Spooner, from Carrion House – we have had the pleasure of working with him before with SQ Mag and another book cover, A Reason To Kill by Geraldine Fitzsimmons, for our International imprint.
