IFWG Publishing Australia is pleased to announce that Paula Boer’s young adult novel, The Bloodwolf War (Book 1, The Equinora Chronicles), will be released worldwide on 15 November 2019, and preorders are now available.

Equinora, the world where horses live in harmony with people, is in trouble. The six unicorn guardians created by the Goddess have abandoned their roles and vicious bloodwolves rampage across the land, massacring the herds and villagers.

Fleet, a young stallion without a territory, dreams of galloping with other horses and building a herd of his own. But an attack by a bloodwolf leaves him poisoned and alone. Driven by despair and a promise to fulfil his dying dam’s vision, Fleet sets out to discover how to vanquish the bloodwolves. The only help the renegade unicorns provide is to insist Fleet follow a prophecy to confront the villainous Shadow, an equine so powerful that the Goddess imprisoned him to prevent him destroying her realm.

Accompanied by Yuma, a young man desperate to escape his destiny, and Tatuk, a tiny dragon, Fleet seeks Shadow and a cure for the bloodwolf poison. But even as he begins to fear the selfish unicorns have sent him to his death, he discovers a secret that might mean he has a chance to save all horses and people from annihilation.

Print preorders will close 30 October 2019.

Print preorder: anywhere in UK, Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand (AU$29.95 inc shipping)

eBook formats will be posted here soon.

New Book Signing: The Equinora Chronicles by Paula Boer

We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of the YA novel series, The Equinora Chronicles, by Paula Boer. Paula is one of our first authors, having penned the highly successful Brumbies series, and she returns with her love of horse adventures, but now with a very strong speculative fiction streak. This ticks two major boxes of IFWG’s fields of interest, aside from Boer’s great storytelling ability.

In Book 1 of the series, The Bloodwolf War, Fleet, a young stallion, dreams of running with other horses and building his own herd. But when the guardian unicorns of Equinora abandon their goddess-given roles, bloodwolves rampage the land and Fleet is poisoned.

The Bloodwolf War will be released late in the second quarter of 2019.

News: Brumbies Series at Tom Quilty 50th Anniversary National Endurance Championships

Paula Boer, author of the Brumbies series, attended the Tom Quilty 50th Anniversary National Endurance Championships, held at Del Rio Resort at Wiseman’s Ferry on the Hawkesbury River (New South Wales, Australia). Given the auspicious anniversary, it was a huge event and Paula, who was once an endurance rider herself, enjoyed the proceedings and had the opportunity to sell her signed Brumbies series books. She stated it was an exciting, enjoyable, and successful experience.

There were over 350 riders in the event, which took place from midnight 5th June to midnight 6th June. The ride is in 5 legs with vet checks and rest periods between each leg so overall elapsed ride time is more than the 18 hours 8 minutes and 4 seconds! No wonder they call it endurance!

Here is Paula at her stand at the event:

Paula had the opportunity to speak to many of the participants, and a great deal of interest was given to her 5-book series – reflected in healthy sales.

An example of one of the participants she met was Alissa Woods, 13, who lives in Queensland. She started her endurance career in May 2012 and had her first attempt at a Quilty buckle in June 2013 (age 11) but vetted out on the first leg. She came 11th out of 22 junior entrants. Alissa is a reader of Horsewyse Magazine and Paula will be doing an interview with her for the next edition. The following photograph shows Paula with Alyssa.
