The storyline reads:

A new drug that promises a cure for rabies is discovered in the heart of Africa in 1990. Two adversaries, unknown to each other, join a small tour group to gain the serum. One wants to use the cure for the good of all mankind; the other for personal glory and profit.

News: New Cover for Circle of Seven

As part of our internal improvement program, IFWG Publishing has rereleased one of its early fantasy fiction titles: Circle of Seven by MF Burbaugh. The key change was improving its cover – Elizabeth Lang, of EL Design, has done a great job capturing one of the exciting scenes of the novel, and portraying the youth and power of the very young female protagonist.

Circle of Seven is a delightful story, and don’t be fooled thinking this is a novel for children or young adults. It isn’t, although young adults would no doubt enjoy it. The protagonist is a child but she is caught up in some of the horrors of life, and the politics and war on a fantastical planet. It starts as a science fiction, but it quickly, inexorably transforms into a heroic fantasy. This is a unique tale, and worth reading.

The storyline reads:

After being kidnapped by pirates, a young earth girl, Myra, finds herself on a strange planet full of magic, hate, and ancient prophesies. Befriended by a Dwarf Princess, she struggles to understand her environment or die.

War looms on the horizon as Elves, Dwarfs, Dragons, and others face the reality of an ancient judgment to come.

This is the story of pirates, death, war, magic, and ancient prophesies. Myra may hold the key to their planet’s destiny in her tiny hands as she struggles to fulfill the ancient writings and stay alive.

Circle of Seven will be out in its new form in a few days, and can be purchased from all good online book stores, print and ebook formats. It can also be purchased now through IFWG’s bookstores: PRINT and EBOOK.

News: New Cover for Blood Contract

As part of our internal improvement program, IFWG Publishing has rereleased one of its favorite non-speculative fiction titles: Blood Contract by Biola Olatunde. One key change was improving its cover – we believe Elizabeth Lang, of EL Design, has done a great job capturing the spirit and intent of the novel.

Biola Olatunde’s novels, whether they are speculative or not, hit at the heart of Nigeria’s culture, challenges, and virtues. She has the rare ability to combine social commentary with entertaining adventure. She proudly writes in Nigerian English, and IFWG Publishing has worked hard to balance this idiom with Western readability. A magical combination; a unique voice.

Blood Contract is about Ken (Kenawari), who left his village in the Niger Delta region many years ago, carrying with him emotional scars. However, he did make a life for himself in the city and built a reputation as a slick troubleshooter in inter-village disputes, of which there were many. He was one of the best operators on the books of the private security firm he worked for.

Then it happened. There was trouble in his tribal home. Reluctantly he agreed to return. Not only has he got to settle a dispute that resulted in kidnapping, and tread gingerly through the political minefield of the region – including local robber barons, but he also has to face the most fearsome obstacles of all – his past.

Blood Contract is not just an adventure set in the dangerous swamps of the Niger Delta, it is also the story of a man who is imperfect and must finally find some reconciliation with his past.

Blood Contract can be purchased from all good online book stores, print and ebook formats. It can also be purchased through IFWG’s bookstores: PRINT and EBOOK.
