This book has been a while coming, but we know that the many fans of the series will be wringing their hands and purchasing a copy.

It’s not magic, it’s real… 
 
The war between good and evil psi warriors gets into high gear in this second installment of the Psi Wars! series with our teen heroes, Henry Greenberg and Sebastian Drake, involved in more thrilling psychic hijinks.  
 
Having escaped The Psi Academy, Sebastian and Captain Fabian come looking for Henry to help them rescue Sebastian’s father, Colonel Peter Drake, and the others being held captive by the evil Kinsman z-Prime on Level 13 of the Psi Cave. But after teleporting inside, Henry and Sebastian are met by the unexpected and find that who they thought was bad may not be bad after all.  
 
Their adventure takes them to The Realm Beyond The Realm—the place beyond space and time—a necessary step to enable them return the Psi Academy for a face off against the baddest of psi warriors in the most important battle of the Psi War.  
 
Amazing psychic powers are on display—telekinesis, telepathy, tele-influencing and more—in this rip-roaring adventure where the magic of flying vans, dragon wraiths, and wolfboars become reality in a battle for the minds of ordinary men. And lurking beneath all this is Henry’s struggle over who is truly good and who is truly bad.

Return to the Psi Academy is now available direct from IFWG Publishing, or through Amazon, and will soon be available from all good online stores. The eBook will be available in a few days through Kindle only.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00007]

After returning from her time-traveling adventures in 16th Century Japan, Kim Yoshima finds adjusting to her old life isn’t as easy as she thought it would be. Neither is it for her friends, Shioko Yoshima, Jackson Yamaguchi, and Wayne Brewster.

All suffer trauma of varying degrees, struggling to adapt and reconcile the past and present, and what role they now have in the world.

But, all is not well in the multiverse either. Not every mythological creature torn out of time-and-place by the Spirit Winds was sent back to its own realm. Some still exist in our world and hunger to go home.

To do so, they need Kim Yoshima’s esper powers and will strive to harness them any way they can, even if it means Kim’s death.

And if that isn’t enough, an old enemy of Kim’s makes a startling return.Warriors of the Light full wrap

The cover art and design is by Elizabeth Lang – great work as usual!

Advance Review Copies will soon be available for select reviewers.

Constellation Station Front Cover 2014

 

Karl opened the book of maps. Inside, however, there were no maps. There seemed to be…a story!

It began: Through his room window, Karl could see the night was thick, but he could see pinpoints of gold and patches of orange light scattered along the horizon. Soon, thought Karl, he would reach Constellation Station. He had been planning this trip for as long as he could remember and now, finally, his dream would become realized…

A great, evocative cover by Ioanny Dimov (art) and Elizabeth Lang (design).

The illustrations are amazing and Gary’s story is both educational and entertaining – we think you may consider purchasing the print version to capture the full effect. The Kindle ebook version is free from tomorrow and can be found at Amazon.
