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

A group of discarded garden ginomees turn their backs on the boredom of a lifetime in the garden and set out in search of adventure. When a good deed goes wrong, Noname and his friend Flutey are forced to fly over the Tripletoe Mountains to win back the hats stolen by a band of wild ginomees.

The Rejects is a juvenile fantasy novel, perfect for 8 to 10 year olds, but nevertheless delightful for all ages beyond.

Sneak Preview: The Rejects by Ali Foster

IFWG Publishing (Australia and International) prides itself for its juvenile and young teen titles, and recently we have won some significant adulation in this field – The Smoking Mirror‘s ALA Belpre Award honor title comes to mind, as well as the Brumbies series.

Keeping this in mind, and also adding our significant effort to have a strong presence in the New Zealand market, we want to share with you the beautiful cover for The Rejects by Ali Foster (Book 1 of the Ginomees Trilogy). New Zealand artist and designer Cheryl Smith created a wonderful cover capturing the characters in Ali’s book, and it also has vibrant colours – well suited to the 8-10 year old reader market (and all the way to adult, mind you).

News: New Cover for Paper Magic

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.

New Cover for e-book

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.

 

News: Release of Gravity’s Eye by Ian C. Douglas

It is with great pleasure that we announce the release of Gravity’s Eye by Ian C. Douglas, the second book in the Zeke Hailey young teen science fiction series. The first book, The Infinity Trap, had been received very well, particularly in the UK, and we look forward to similar reactions with this exciting sequel. Special mention should also be given to EL Designs for cover design and much of the artwork, and Catherine Archer-Wills for action art.

On Mars, your best friend sometimes turns out to be your worst enemy.

Zeke Hailey is struggling with life at the Chasm, the 23rd century school for psychics. His extrasensory skills have dried up and there’s a prehistoric robot out to kill him. At least he has a new mate, in the shape of late comer Fitch Crawley.

Only there’s more to Fitch than Zeke realises. The boy has a genius for hypnosis, making fools of the teachers. Fitch has an invisible pet too, a creature armed with deadly venom. Zeke and Fitch team up with an old foe, setting off on a Martian road trip. But this search for answers will bring them face to face with monsters and, most dangerous of all, a demon from beyond time. Zeke will have to do more than survive his mind-bending friend and the ancient killer robot.

As the universe starts to collapse, Zeke must choose between saving his friends or the human race. For nobody but Zeke can stop the apocalypse of Gravity’s Eye.

Gravity’s Eye is now available in Kindle format, and will shortly be available in trade paperback in all good online stores, and direct from IFWG Publishing Australia.
