Preorder: Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse

dawn-of-the-apocalypse-6X9

IFWG Publishing Australia is pleased to announce that Lee Murray’s middle grade novel, Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse, will be released worldwide on 7 October 2019, and preorders are now available.

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…

Print preorders will close 15 September 2019.

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

Kindle Preorders (except North America)

Other geographies and ebook formats will be posted here soon.

New Release: Switch by Rowena Evans

Switch front cover

Rowena Evans‘ mid-teen science fiction thriller, Switch, has been released in Australia, New Zealand and the UK on 15th February 2019. This is the long-awaited sequel to Drums and Power Lines, and continues almost immediately following the prior events. It will be released at a later date in North America.

“Evans captures the Australian country landscape beautifully,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing Australia, “and yet the parallel worlds depicted are also universal in character, and at the same time, slightly askew from what we perceive as normal. Drums and Power Lines was a delightful, thrilling read, and I am sure middle grade and young adult readers – as well as adults as often is the case – will love this next chapter in the continuing story.”

Spectacular artwork for the cover is by Rowena Evans.

Ivan hurried away from the ridge. His heart beat fast and his hands were shaking. The shock of seeing Cal appear was considerable. Yes, he and Reenie had persuaded Hugo to play his drums at sunset, but Ivan realized now that the last thing he expected was to succeed.

Ivan, Cassie and Wilfred, Reenie and Cal desperately miss each other; the friendships they made in their similar but different parallel worlds six months ago.

When Cal reappears in Ivan and Reenie’s world, the turmoil and restlessness that has lurked in each of them explodes into real life, throwing all, and the unsuspecting Jess, into a whirlwind of adventure, uncertainty and discovery.

Switch is available in all good bookstores, online and bricks and mortar. In Australia/NZ it is distributed by Novella Distributors, and in UK/Europe by Gazelle Book Services. Switch in Kindle format is currently available through Amazon.

It is Book 2 in his young teen Guardians of St. Giles series, a wonderful, dark adventure series centred on Olivia Stone, a teenager who is blessed – and cursed – with her blood being mixed with that of a Grotesque.

“I don’t like spiders…they give me the shivers.” Olivia shudders to prove her point.

Dreamweavers feed on the dread and despair of their victims. To help Yip stop their nightmarish infestation of the city, Olivia has to prowl dark streets, brave the boy’s toilet, and break into the old Haven Asylum.

She must face her greatest fear, the mother of all spiders, if she has any hope of saving her friend, Emmett.

Olivia Stone and the Dread of the Dreamers is now available for sale in all good print and online stores.

For those of you who haven’t read the Guardian of St. Giles series, a good place is to start with Olivia Stone and the Trouble With Trixies.

New Release: Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean

penultimate curtis creed front cover

It is with great pleasure we announce the release of Rebecca Fraser‘s debut novel, Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean, a young teen story. We had a wonderful book launch in Mornington, VIC today, with all the books sold out.

In the coastal Queensland town of Midnight Cove, thirteen-year-old Curtis Creed’s world is falling apart.

Once a talented upcoming surfer, he cannot bring himself to return to the ocean.  His inability to overcome his fear earns him the ridicule of his older brother, Dylan. Worse, his family is struggling to cope with the loss of their father in a rock fishing accident.

The summer holiday looks long and lonely for Curtis until he meets Navaya, a mysterious sea dweller he rescues from fishing line in a rock pool.

When Curtis agrees to help Navaya find the Moami, the key to an undersea cavern hiding her people’s most precious secrets, he embarks on a dangerous quest that sees him join forces with awkward but brilliant new girl in town, Morgan.

Will Curtis be able to overcome his fears to return the Moami to its rightful owners before Navaya’s enemies succeed in their deadly mission? Was his father’s death really an accident? And what exactly is the lore of the ocean?

Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean can be purchased from all good bricks and mortar stores, and online.
