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).

It is with pride that we announce the release of Andrew Cull‘s chilling horror novel, Remains. It will be released in North America on 16th September 2019.
The absolutely wonderful artwork and design is by our welcome regular, Luke Spooner.
“Cull’s novel is already becoming a hit with reviewers,” said IFWG Managing Director, Gerry Huntman, “which confirms our immediate attraction to his manuscript when we first received it. Cull is an accomplished film director and his cinematic eye is wonderfully extended into the writing medium. I expect this ghost-themed novel to win awards.”
Grief is a black house.
How far would you go? What horrors would you endure if it meant you might see the son you thought you’d lost forever?
Driven to a breakdown by the brutal murder of her young son, Lucy Campbell had locked herself away, fallen deep inside herself, become a ghost haunting room 23b of the William Tuke Psychiatric Hospital.
There she’d remained, until the whispering pulled her back, until she found herself once more sitting in her car, calling to the son she had lost, staring into the black panes of the now abandoned house where Alex had died.
Tonight, someone is watching her back.
Remains is available in all non-North American regions through all quality bricks and mortar and online stores. North Americans will be able to purchase the book on 16 September 2019.
IFWG is pleased to announce the non-North American release of The Blacksmith by New Zealand author, Barbara Howe. The wonderful cover art is by Catherine Archer-Wills. The North American release will occur on 23rd September 2019.
“This is the third of the Reforging series by Howe,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and it just gets better and better. Barbara shows us how to spin a convincing and evocative fantasy story, and suck the reader right in.”
How is the king like a blacksmith? He has a hammer as well as a sword.
Duncan Archer has heard that riddle many times, but he doesn’t know what it means. No one does, not even the members of the Royal Guild of Swordsmiths. It isn’t Duncan’s business anyway. Good sense tells him to stick to beating iron into shape for the residents of his backwater town, and not worry about the king and his nobles pounding Frankland into the ground.
But good sense never stopped Duncan from poking his nose into everyone else’s business. If it had, he might not be a fugitive, the subject of the biggest manhunt in the country’s history.
With a charge of murder hanging over his head like a sword, understanding that riddle becomes much more urgent…
The Blacksmith is available through all good bricks and mortar and online stores in non-North American regions. North America will have the release on 23rd September 2019.
