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.
Louis K. Lowy is a former firefighter with the city of Hialeah, Florida. He is the author of three books published by IFWG Publishing International: Die Laughing, a humorously dark science fiction adventure set in the 1950s, Pedal, an inspirational tale of a 49-year-old music teacher who loses her job and struggles to reclaim her life through bicycle racing, and To Dream (Book 1 in the Anatomy of a Humachine series), a science fiction tour de force spanning two centuries and crossing two planets.
Lowy is the recipient of a State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship and an alumnus of Florida International University’s creative writing program. He lives in South Florida with his wife, Carol, and their daughter, Katie. Their son, Chris, resides on the west coast.

A few days ago in our Australian imprint we stated that while we are a specialist children’s and adult speculative fiction publishing company, we can’t ignore work of excellent quality. Especially when the writer is an existing author with us.
We are very pleased indeed to have acquired the rights to publish Louis K. Lowy‘s Pedal, an inspiring literary novel about empowering women, set in the unique world of bicycle racing.
Fired from her lifelong passion: teaching music.
Stripped of her self-worth.
Can she regain her life through bicycle racing?
Joanne Brick’s thirty years as an elementary school music teacher evaporated into the rising sea of layoffs. A lifetime of dedication gone. At forty-nine, single with an ailing mother and bitter, divorced sister, the future looked bleak. Then one day, while cleaning out the garage for a yard sale, inspiration struck as she dusted off an old, forgotten bicycle. And when she took her first ride she knew it was time to sink or pedal.
Pedal is an inspirational journey. It is a contemporary story that deal not only with family relationships, but with life’s turning points and how ordinary people deal with them.
Pedal is now available in all ebook formats from all good electronic book stores. The print version will be available in all good online stores in coming days, but can be purchased now from the publisher.
Louis K. Lowy’s Jan. 28 book launch of To Dream, book one of his science fiction thriller Anatomy of a Humachine drew a packed crowd to South Florida’s iconic Books and Books.
He was introduced by noted author, John Dufresne.
Lowy familiarized the attendees to the novel’s most prominent characters through short readings from the book. Two question and answer sessions were held. The audience was very receptive and asked an array of questions ranging from writing habits to plot structure and character development. Afterward, Lowy signed books and greeted those who attended.
To Dream can be purchased direct from the publisher – print and ebook, or through all good print and ebook online stores.
Here are a few photographs taken of the event:
We are pleased to reveal the full cover wrap designs for the hardcover and trade paperback versions of To Dream (Anatomy of a Humachine Book 1), a thought-provoking science fiction novel by Louis K Lowy. The artwork and design is by the amazing Dean Samed.
The hardcover (grey clothbound with sleeve) will be released early January, followed soon thereafter by the trade paperback version. Preorders will be available late this year.
Guilt ridden over the death of her 17-year-old son, Jay, scientist Niyati Bopari heads a team that creates a Humachine (human machine) for mega-corporation Ameri-Inc. Niyati dubs the Humachine J-1 and creates it in Jay’s image. She secretly infuses it with Jay’s DNA. J-1 is the most sophisticated robot ever created and its purpose is to replace human labor. Before J-1 and his blueprints can be transported to Ameri-Inc. headquarters a rogue Ameri-Inc. agent attempts to steal them.
Anatomy of a Humachine is a science fiction tour de force spanning two centuries and crossing two planets. Book I: To Dream centers on J-1, an artificial intelligence struggling to find his humanity; the grieving scientist who created him; the ruthless head of the corporation who owns him; and the iron-willed leader of a rebel force seeking revenge for the death of her family and the destruction of her planet.
IFWG Publishing has wanted to commission Dean Samed for a long time: a truly skilled and talented artist and cover designer. When we signed the book contract with Louis K Lowy for his novel, To Dream (book 1 of Anatomy of a Humachine), Dean’s style was an obvious match, and we are grateful that he was available to weave his magic for us. It is with immense pleasure that we reveal the front cover.
To Dream will be released in the second quarter of 2016. Stay tuned for more information about this powerful science fiction.
