In less than a week we will be releasing a new title, Intimations of Evil, by Cary J. Lenehan, Book 1 of the Warriors of Vhast epic fantasy series. While we are not new to fantasy, with a number of titles under our belt, and many more in our US imprint, we are particularly pleased to publish IFWG Publishing Australia’s first adult epic fantasy novel.
This is Cary’s debut novel and we are excited for him. He is a resident of Tasmania – our second author from that lovely island.
The artwork is by the fine artist, Catherine Archer-Wills, and the cover design is by Elizabeth Lang. A quality match.
Stay tuned for the release announcement.
From every direction nine individuals of varied races and walks of life are drawn to the village of Evilhalt on the shores of Lake Erave. A foundling, a princess; a huntress and secret policeman; a shepherd and a huntress; a tribesman and a Battle Mage.; a Ghazi…
As they journey each faces trials beyond those of normal travellers. On arrival they meet a local leatherworker and militiaman, Stefan, who just wants more of life than what seems to be offered to him. They uncover deep, dark mysteries which hints of greater evil. Together, and for a mix of reasons, they set off to face their destiny.
Intimations of Evil is the first book of a series that sees worlds reshaped and myths confounded in a far-flung fantasy adventure.
We are pleased to announce the signing of our last new author’s work for 2015: Intimations of Evil (Volume 1 of the Warriors of Vhast series), by Tasmanian author Cary Lenehan. “This is the perfect addition to 2015’s Australian catalog, as we wanted a strong, enduring epic fantasy series, which is conspicuously absent at the moment,” stated Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing/IFWG Publishing Australia.
We are expecting this title to be released in the second half of 2015. Stay tuned for more information about the forthcoming title early next year.
Cary Lenehan is a former trades assistant, soldier, public servant, cab driver, truck driver, game designer, and university tutor (among other things), who is currently a student horticulturalist volunteering at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. His hobbies include collecting and reading books (the non-fiction are Dewey decimalised), Tasmanian native plants (particularly the edible ones), the SCA, and gaming.
He has taught people how to use everything from shortswords to rocket launchers. He met his wife at a SF Convention and they have not looked back.
He was born in Sydney before marrying and moving to the Snowy Mountains where they started their family. They moved to Tasmania for the warmer winters, and are not likely to ever leave it. Looking out of the window beside the computer is a sweeping view of Mount Wellington.
