New Signing: Remains by Andrew Cull

IFWG Australia is very pleased to announce acquisition of Andrew Cull’s horror novel, Remains, described best by one of our submission editors as “creepy as hell”. And creepy as hell it is, which is a major reason why it will be published in the latter half of 2018, aside from its well-crafted narrative.

We are pleased to close our imprint’s 2018 scheduled catalogue of titles with this dark piece, rounding the year nicely.

New Release: In the Heat of the Day by Peter Rondel

IFWG Publishing is very pleased to announce the release of Peter Rondel‘s climate change science fiction novel, In the Heat of the Day. “We are particularly proud of this title,” Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing Australia said, “as it is our first adult science fiction novel for our Australian imprint, as well as covering an underrepresented subgenre – climate change. Two firsts.”

Peter Rondel is not new to IFWG Publishing, as he has a wonderful children’s illustrated novel published with us, A Magpie Called Will, in collaboration with New Zealand artist, Frances Hutt.

For decades, the subject of climate change and global warming were regarded as nonsense by many. When the threat becomes a reality, one young technician seeks solutions to the world’s biggest problems when oil becomes unavailable.

The need for electric power and new means of transport become his dedication. Unable to afford patents, his inventions become the target for a criminal group. His girlfriend is kidnapped to force him to cooperate.

Technically, he deceives the group with false information and is forced to relocate to a cave in Australia’s far north. He is faced with the consequences of his deceptions when global tragedies become the result.

In the Heat of the Day is currently available in Kindle and Kobo format, and will be soon available in print and other ebook formats. EPUB and Kindle compatible formats can now be purchased direct from the publisher.

New Signing: Faerie Apocalypse by Jason Franks

It is with immense pleasure that we announce the book signing for Faerie Apocalypse by Jason Franks – a literary fantasy novel. Jason describes the book as “Blood Meridian meets Stardust” – tantalising indeed! Certainly our submissions editors thought so.

The novel will be published in 2017 – over coming months we will narrow down the release period.

Jason Franks writes comics, prose and source code. His first novel, BLOODYWATERS, was short-listed for the 2012 Aurealis Award for Best Horror Novel.

He is the writer of the THE SIXSMITHS graphic novels (a Ledger Awards finalist) and the comic series LEFT HAND PATH (also shot-listed for an Aurealis Award), as well as numerous short stories in prose and comics. A collection of his mainstream short stories was collected in UNGENRED by Black House Comics.

Franks has published work in most genres, but he is most comfortable at in the darker reaches of speculative fiction, although his writing is often humorous. His protagonists are likely to be villains or anti-heroes and the Devil is a recurring figure in his work.

Franks has lived in South Africa, the USA and Japan. He currently resides in Melbourne, Australia.

Franks can most easily be reached by email at jf@jasonfranks.com. You can also find him on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/FranklyOperational/, and on twitter as @jasefranks.

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.
