News: Successful Official Release of Brave’s Journey by Jan Goldie

With over 200 people celebrating the launch of the new IFWG fantasy adventure Brave’s Journey, it’s safe to say New Zealanders are fans of a good read. Held alongside a children’s art exhibition focused on the themes within the book, the launch was overrun with enthusiastic kids ready to show off their artwork and talk about Brave’s Journey. The cross pollination of literature and art was a great success, with visitors coming from far and wide.

Brave’s Journey can be purchased direct from this site (print), and from our ebook store, or any online book stores, such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple iStore, and Kobo.

News: Release of Brave’s Journey by Jan Goldie

It is with very great pleasure that we announce the release of Brave’s Journey by Jan Goldie, our first New Zealand author. This book is targeted to young to middling teenagers and is packed with epic fantasy adventure.

We are already hearing good things about the novel, including the respected New Zealand author and reviewer, Lee Murray, stating, “A richly-crafted fantasy adventure, Brave’s Journey is populated with tantrum-prone pre-teens, strange and mysterious creatures and malevolent baddies, but readers shouldn’t be fooled into thinking this is just another epic tale of good and evil. It’s also a gentle coming of age story, proving that awkwardness and humour is part of the process, no matter what world you hail from. A terrific read, not to be missed.”

The cover was designed by the talented Elizabeth Lang of EL Designs.

A boy. A weird tattoo. A silver necklace showing four elements: ‘Earth. Air. Fire. Water.’

When Brave woke up that first, life-changing day, he had no idea that pretty soon he’d be controlling the weather, talking to royalty and journeying to another world. Let alone riding a camel. Life in the mysterious world of Arvalonia, where magic springs from the nature around you, couldn’t be more different to his ordinary existence back home. Especially when he meets True…bossy, rich, driven teenager True who’s out to make his life a misery.

Brave and True venture deep into enemy territory; facing a month without a bath, nipping stinkbuggies, evil ruler Mallevia’s ruthless green guards and eventually a battle with the vile queen herself.

Discover a place where the nature of power is within the power of nature.

Escape the ordinary.

Brave’s Journey can be purchased in ebook and print formats directly from IFWG Publishing Australia, or through all quality online stores, such as Amazon.

Sneak Preview: Brave’s Journey by Jan Goldie

In the next few weeks we will be releasing our latest title: Brave’s Journey, by our first New Zealand author, Jan Goldie. This is a young adult fantasy novel, rich with world building.

We are particularly pleased to publish a New Zealander, as we have had strong connections with the Land of the Long White Cloud as our ezine, SQ Mag, has had some wonderful authors contribute to its fiction. This is a sweet fulfilment of our commitment to representing New Zealand.

The fine cover design and artwork is by Elizabeth Lang, of EL Designs.

Stay tuned for the release announcement.
