IFWG is excited to announce the Australian/UK/NZ release of Olivia Stone and the Dread of the Dreamers,  by Jeffery E Doherty. It is Book 2 in his young teen Guardians of St. Giles series, a wonderful, dark adventure series centred on Olivia Stone, a teenager who is blessed – and cursed – with her blood being mixed with that of a Grotesque.

“I don’t like spiders…they give me the shivers.” Olivia shudders to prove her point.

Dreamweavers feed on the dread and despair of their victims. To help Yip stop their nightmarish infestation of the city, Olivia has to prowl dark streets, brave the boy’s toilet, and break into the old Haven Asylum.

She must face her greatest fear, the mother of all spiders, if she has any hope of saving her friend, Emmett.

Olivia Stone and the Dread of the Dreamers is now available for sale in all good print and online stores.

For those of you who haven’t read the Guardian of St. Giles series, a good place is to start with Olivia Stone and the Trouble With Trixies.

IFWG Publishing Australia is delighted to announce the release of Engine of Lies, by Barbara Howe, book 2 in her  young adult Reforging series. “IFWG has long recognised the immense catchment of speculative talent in New Zealand,” stated Gerry Huntman, Managing Director, “and Engine of Lies is the latest title representing that impressive pool. This series is impressive and what attracted us to publishing Barbara’s work is the strong female protagonists – young adults and adults alike will love them.”

NEVER, EVER, LIE TO A WARLOCK

He never promised happily ever after, but Lucinda is still dismayed by how quickly reality intrudes on her fairy tale. Assassination attempts and lightning strikes disturb her honeymoon, but the return home brings no peace of mind. When the discovery of a magical conspiracy shakes her faith in everything she trusts, she vows to expose the Fire Warlock’s most shameful secret and see justice done.

As a hot summer draws towards a violent end, Lucinda teeters between terror and rage. She’d be less angry about risking her life if she didn’t suspect her husband – her hero! – intends to step aside and let her die.

Engine of Lies is now available from all good bookstores, online and bricks and mortar, in Australia, Canada and the US, and online in other geographies. It is available in print (North America, Australia, International) and ebook formats (North America, Other Geographies).


For those who haven’t been introduced to the Reforging series, read first Book 1, The Locksmith.

It is with great pleasure we announce the release of Rebecca Fraser‘s debut novel, Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean, a young teen story. We had a wonderful book launch in Mornington, VIC today, with all the books sold out.

In the coastal Queensland town of Midnight Cove, thirteen-year-old Curtis Creed’s world is falling apart.

Once a talented upcoming surfer, he cannot bring himself to return to the ocean.  His inability to overcome his fear earns him the ridicule of his older brother, Dylan. Worse, his family is struggling to cope with the loss of their father in a rock fishing accident.

The summer holiday looks long and lonely for Curtis until he meets Navaya, a mysterious sea dweller he rescues from fishing line in a rock pool.

When Curtis agrees to help Navaya find the Moami, the key to an undersea cavern hiding her people’s most precious secrets, he embarks on a dangerous quest that sees him join forces with awkward but brilliant new girl in town, Morgan.

Will Curtis be able to overcome his fears to return the Moami to its rightful owners before Navaya’s enemies succeed in their deadly mission? Was his father’s death really an accident? And what exactly is the lore of the ocean?

Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean can be purchased from all good bricks and mortar stores, and online.

New Release: The Clonestone by Ali Foster

Ali Foster‘s delightful children’s Ginomees Trilogy continues with Book 2, The Clonestone, now available from all good bookstores, online and bricks and mortar. “Ali’s wonderful stories about the adventures of a group of discarded garden gnomes captured IFWG’s imagination from the beginning,” says Gerry Huntman, Managing Director IFWG Publishing Australia. “We look forward to its conclusion in 2019, ‘The Cave at the End of the Universe’.”

The Clonestone Front Cover

The one who turns from wood to bone,
and then in turn from bone to stone,
must face the giants all alone.

With Olive the Oracle’s words ringing in his ears, Noname sets out to battle the fearsome Ginogle—half eagle, half ginomee, and sworn enemy of all wild ginomees. After scaling the lofty Mountain of Mirrors, Noname realises he is the only one who can retrieve the legendary Clonestone. Can he find it before the Cheating Giants use it to create a monster even more terrifying than the Ginogle?

If you haven’t bought your child Book 1, enjoy The Rejects:

“We’re ginomees, it says so right here. Look! G-N-O-M-E-S spells ginomees!”
