With the increased interest in our children’s titles, and the huge triple-launch event in Canberra this Saturday, we decided it was time for a freshen-up of one of our first kid’s books: Paper Magic, by Jeffery E. Doherty.
Paper Magic is a story about finding courage, facing challenges and overcoming self-doubt. It is about the power of friendship and discovering you don’t need magic to be worthwhile. The park calls to Marina. It tugs at a place deep in her chest but the thought of meeting the children who play there sends her into a breathless panic.
This beautiful story deals with issues of bullying, anxiety and being different, issues increasingly relevant to children of all ages. The story will delight any reader who has ever felt awkward, lonely or anxious.
You can purchase the print title through any good online or bricks and mortar retailer, but also through our print store.
If you want an ebook, visit Amazon.
We are very happy to announce that three of our most recent titles, all children/young teen books, will have their formal book launch together at the marvellous Harry Hartog Bookstore in Westfield Woden, ACT, on 13 February 2016. It will be held from 1.30pm to 3.00pm and we hope that plenty of book-reading families take their children along. There will be readings, signings, music, colouring-in, sketching by artists, and drinks and nibbles. 4 of our authors, two of whom are fine artists, are represented, covering 10 titles published by IFWG Publishing Australia.
Come and enjoy the festivities!
IFWG Publishing Australia is extremely pleased to announce the release of Olivia Stone and the Trouble with Trixies (Book 1 of The Guardians of St. Giles series). Jeffery E Doherty has penned an enchanting, unique story for the 9 to 13 age group, action packed in a world where dark creatures can cross over.
Can a broken young girl help a guilt-ridden grotesque stop the monsters?
An unprotected city.
The Grotesques have been taken down from the roof of St. Giles Old Priory School. With the Guardians statue-trapped, there is no one left to protect Haven from the monsters.
Despite crippling injuries from a falling grotesque statue, twelve-year-old Olivia Stone finds herself on the front lines in the battle between Good and Evil. Olivia needs to rescue Yip, the smallest living grotesque and the cause of her accident, discover the hidden power locked within her, and find a way to outwit the trixies. But trixies know every trick in the book, and while they may look sweet and childlike, something nasty is drawing these solitary pests together and their pranks are turning deadly.
This title will be available in all good print bookstores very soon, but right now it can be purchased by direct order through IFWG Publishing Australia. The ebook will be out soon.
