New Release: Camelot II by MF Burbaugh

IFWG Publishing is very pleased to announce the release of MF Burbaugh‘s third book in the We Were Legends series, Camelot II. Burbaugh is a long-standing author with IFWG and has produced fantasy and science fiction (and novel cross-genre variants) of high imagination and unique world building. The We Were Legends series is vast and ambitious, and readers would need to read the first two volumes to make sense of this third…but it’s worth it.

Available now in Amazon, and all good retailers, online and bricks and mortar. The ebook version will be available within a week.

Camelot II

Jake Spoonbill, once a NASA pilot, later King and savior of a planet called Camelot, has been swept over centuries in cycles of reincarnation, along with his legendary Amazon wives, and the catalyst of what made him a champion of the downtrodden and sex-god, the Bronze Goddess. He has learned that nothing happens by chance, as he is periodically ‘awakened’ to rejoin with his army of sword-wielding wives to fight civilization’s direst of enemies.

In Camelot II Jake is once again awakened and journeys across the galaxy to reform his legendary force, and retrace the complex strands of events that had taken place in previous adventures. He soon discovers that the ancient enemies were not entirely destroyed centuries before…and where one tyrant is toppled, another takes its place.

Join Jake in the third instalment of We Were Legends, and experience more of MF Burbaugh’s unique, fascinating universe.

New Signing: Archsage by Jesse McMinn

IFWG Publishing is delighted to announce the signing of the third and last instalment of Canadian author Jesse McMinn‘s Tower series, Archsage.

We have  had a long association with this talented writer, and in fact Jesse was still in College when he handed his first manuscript over to us. It was a refreshing, innovative approach to epic fantasy as well as parallel worlds. Following the publishing of Loria (book 1), came Trials, which showed Jesse wasn’t a one-hit wonder, and left us all on tenterhooks for the final instalment of the trilogy.

We look forward to releasing Archsage in June 2018.

New Signing: Altered Gate by Shaun Meeks

We previously published two books, The Gate at Lake Drive and Earthbound and Down, and fans of the series look forward to the next instalment, Altered Gate, scheduled for release in August 2018. We are pleased to have signed this book with Shaun.

New Signing: The Second Life of Eddie Coyne by Louis K Lowy

IFWG Publishing has been fortunate to have published a number of books by Florida-based Louis K Lowy, and we’re always pleasantly surprised by the variety of styles and subject matter that he comes up with. Acquiring the rights to his latest novel, The Second Life of Eddie Coyne was a no brainer – an amazing story of a dying gambler who takes on a bet for the ultimate prize—a chance to save his soul. Fans of Lowy will love it; anyone who loves thoughtful, imaginative speculative fiction will adore it.

We are scheduling its release for October 2018.

New Release: Orcus Unchained by Larry Ivkovich

Larry Ivkovich has been an author in IFWG’s stable for 6 years, debuting with his urban fantasy novel, The Sixth Precept (Book 1 of the Spirit Winds Quartet). We absolutely fell in love with his book – it ticked so many boxes, such as having exotic locations (notably Japan), drawing from ancient mythologies, time travel, and introducing a kick-ass female protagonist. Over the years we have published Book 2 of the series, Warriors of the Light, and a special chap-ebook that dovetails wonderfully with the quartet – A Concerned Citizen.

We are very pleased indeed to announce the release of the third book of the Spirit Winds Quartet – Orcus Unchained. We think it’s Larry’s best yet.

As you can see on the cover, Naples features strongly in this instalment, along with feudal Japan and Pittsburgh – exotic indeed! Thanks to Elizabeth Lang from EL Designs for producing evocative, dark covers throughout the series. Continue reading
