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.
In only a matter of days we will be releasing Peter Rondel’s latest novel, In the Heat of the Day – a science fiction novel within the climate change sub-genre. More information will be available on release, but in the meantime, enjoy the cover by Elizabeth Lang.
and its full spread:
IFWG Publishing is happy to announce the release of the Australian version of A Magpie Called Will, a children’s fantasy by Western Australian author, Peter Rondel, and New Zealand illustrator, Frances Hutt.
IFWG released the US version a few years ago, when the Australian Imprint did not exist, and this new release is the final step in transitioning a few Australian-oriented titles to where they better sit. IFWG is particularly pleased that an Australian story, largely set in Australia, is finally published in the appropriate vernacular. The cover design is by the talented Elizabeth Lang of EL Design (Canada), and internal block design was handled by the very capable Geoff Brown (Cohesion Editing and Proofing).
The print and ebook versions of A Magpie Called Will will be out soon through all good online stores, but the print version can be bought now through the publisher’s website.
Michael befriends a magpie that is smarter than he is. The magic of Merlin The Magician reaches across the years to the present day, and suddenly, the two worlds are joined by the magpie’s secret.
What will the boy discover behind the ancient stone archway?
