Two-Cover Reveal: Walking the Tree and Morace’s Story by Kaaron Warren

IFWG is very pleased to reveal the covers of two companion titles by Kaaron Warren, which will be co-released worldwide on the 4th April 2022: Walking the Tree, a reissue of a classic Warren novel, and Morace’s Story, an original middle-grade title that recounts the same story as Walking the Tree, but through the eyes of a teenage protagonist. “The combination of releases,” said Gerry Huntman, “is absolutely unique, and we look forward to producing fiction that can enchant parents and children at the same time.”

Both covers are created by the amazing Greg Chapman.

We will reveal more about this title in coming weeks.

Cover Reveal: The Paradox War by Ian C Douglas

IFWG is extremely pleased to reveal the cover of The Paradox War, by Ian C. Douglas, the fifth and last book in his middle grade science fiction The Zeke Hailey Series. It’s been a long journey and we love the final cover by the very talented Catherine Archer-Wills, not only for its quality, but also how it rounds off the series so well, including choice of colour palette.

We will reveal more about this title in coming weeks.

The Paradox War will be released world wide in March 2022, and preorders will be available in January 2022.

New Acquisition: The Christmas Maze by Danny Fahey

IFWG is very pleased to announce the acquisition of Melbourne-based Danny Fahey’s middle grade novel, The Christmas Maze. “This acquisition,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “is a welcome addition to our young teen reader catalogue. Fahey’s novel is inspirational and we very much look forward to publishing it.”

Danny Fahey works at Trinity College/University of Melbourne where he is the Associate Dean, Teaching & Learning, Pathways School. Danny has over 20 years experience working in education as a Drama teacher and theatre-in education performer. Danny is happily married with 2 grown-up children and a cat named Lenny. He has had three previous novels published by now defunct publishers. Danny is also a published poet who enjoys reading and writing, has acted in a film or two, spends his spare time managing (just) his small backyard food forest and promises himself one day he will return to occasionally painting up a mess. He is an okay cook but not a particularly good driver of motor vehicles.

The Christmas Maze will be released world-wide late in 2022.

New Release: Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse

dawn-of-the-apocalypse-6X9

IFWG Publishing is delighted to announce the world-wide release of Lee Murray’s middle grade novel, Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse. “We pride ourselves in the success and range of our middle grade / young teen novels,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and Murray’s novel enhances our  catalogue. We now have a New Zealand contribution, and one that adds a unique take on horror tropes – and yet original from many angles.”

Chaos’ latest game is positively epic. Just look at the trailer: the hero Bastion Axestone striding through the city streets, fireballs exploding around him and zombies staggering in his wake. Seb can’t wait to play it. He downloads the works. Explosive effects, 3D upgrade, heavy metal soundtrack and a subliminal quotient—whatever that is.

But the next day, Seb and his friends wake up to an apocalypse. Their teachers are missing in action, coach doesn’t come to practice, and Seb’s dad spends all day in his pyjamas. Even worse, not only has Mum not been in to work, she hasn’t bothered to brush her teeth. It’s beginning to look as if every grown-up in Bridgetown—possibly the entire world—has been zombified. They’re obsessed with their personal electronic devices and it’s all Seb’s fault because he’s the one who downloaded the game in the first place. Now, he has to fix it. But how? It’s not as if he can un-download the game. Along with his best mate, Darren, and Talia, The Prettiest Girl in School, Seb has to figure out how to reverse the effect of the computer virus. But in the meantime, the zombies need feeding, Seb’s little sister, Ava, needs minding, and someone has to walk the dog…

Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse is released world-wide and is available from all good bricks and mortar stores, and online (print and ebook).

As old foes return, the conflict rapidly escalates. Zeke discovers that nowhere, not even his beloved school for psychics, is safe from the warfare. But is there a deeper conspiracy at work?
