Last Days of Distribution of Our First Publication

When IFWG Publishing commenced business, it was with great pleasure that we assisted a large bunch of writers who were members of the Storywrite site, to get their collective short stories published. We joined in after the editorial policy and cover design was already set in train, but we helped where we could and got the product published. It is called Page Dancers.

It achieved its prime objective - to get a large number of writers published through traditional means.

As it is a specialized product, and there is no expectation that it will make many more sales, we have decided to stop distribution of the title. By close of business 26 June 2011 (US EST) we will stop distribution.

If any good readers are interested, there are a few more days to purchase it. It is a hefty tome with a huge number of short stories, in almost every genre under the sun. It is unique.

We believe it may end up a bit of a collectors' item, as it is limited in production and many of its writers, no doubt, will become well known, if not famous.

Go here for paperback purchase,

and here for various ebook formats.

M F Burbaugh's New Novel, We Were Legends

We are proud to announce that M F Burbaugh's latest novel, We Were Legends, is now out in Kindle and within a day or two, NOOK Book. The print and pdf versions will also be released very soon.

We are also chuffed that this is our first author who has published a second title with us (the previous novella is Circle of Seven). A great milestone, and thank's Skip!

Jake is a NASA pioneer pilot in a newly developed one-man explorer ship who takes to the stars to escape torment. Odds of survival are less than four in ten, and it is believed NASA pads the statistics.

He is forced to crash on an unknown planet that is dying, as its star gets colder in defiance of the laws of physics. Jake begins his survival quest with a few technological items from his ship and a still-functioning computer. It gets more complex when he rescues a beautiful girl and struggles to overcome the life and death challenges of the planet's inhabitants, mega-fauna, and extreme climate. He discovers a few of Earth's ancient stories of gods and demi-gods that are embroiled in hate, vanity, and what some call magic, are more than myths.

With success or failure, Jake proves that legends are made, not born.

Message regarding The Book Depository from IFWG's Managing Director

Hi everyone.

I looked at The Book Depository site and did a search. It seems that Onet's Tale, Blood Contract, The Devil Came East, KnorraSky and Page Dancers and are available. The others are not.

There is no reason for this since all of our titles are handled the same way. There must be more to it. I contacted our printer about this. I await their answer. When I get it I will send that answer to The Book Depository.

Very disappointed.

For some time now, IFWG Publishing has recommended readers to purchase our titles through The Book Depository (UK and US online stores). We still do, but now rather reluctantly.

Firstly, we should point out that from a US based, international small publisher, The Book Depository is an excellent avenue for our readers to purchase out titles, if they do not live in the US. It is the most cost effective way to purchase our print titles.

However, over recent months our latest titles have been shown on their sites as 'not currently available' or the like, and request the reader place a notification order via their email addresses.

This is very bad for us, and anyone like us.

We currently publish most of our print titles via POD - it is a most cost effective means of publishing, and it literally means that anyone who places an order will have the title printed in a very short time frame, and then shipped. Despite numerous email exchanges - where the answers have been stock and frankly illogical - we are now in the situation where our non-US fans will not be able to purchase our products through The Book Depository. You will not be able to order then and there, and if you place your email address for notification, you will never get notified. Amazing isn't it.

They are cutting significant sales pipelines for us, and as a small publisher, this is critical.

We kindly ask all our fans, acquaintances, professional networkees, and anyone else who would like to burst a massive bubble of nonsense, to contact The Book Depository and ask them to make POD books available for order. Please please cite recent titles by IFWG Publishing as a good example.

Here's to solidarity.

Sneak Preview of new cover for Elizabeth Lang's THE EMPIRE

We are happy to announce that in the very near future, Elizabeth Lang's scifi-romance novel, THE EMPIRE, will have a make-over cover:

And while we are at it, the following is the new blurb:

It will be interesting to discover which will make you beg. Will it be the pain or the pleasure?"

How do you tame a man without breaking his spirit?
The galaxy is under siege from alien invaders. The Empire is the only force that stands in their way, trading the freedom of its citizens for a tenuous security.
Amidst this chaos, Lt. Adrian Stannis is a brilliant scientist trying to stay out of the limelight. He hides on a research vessel plying the Outer Rim and finds peace of a sort with Kali Mirren, a psi-enabled humanoid. But his days of anonymity may be coming to an end. Someone has discovered his secret and is determined to make him pay for his treachery. He must finish the project he abandoned years ago, one the Council deems essential in its fight against the aliens, but things are never that simple where Adrian is concerned.
Is he more man than machine, or have years hiding behind a mountain of logic eroded his humanity? Can he survive the tangled web of political expediency and psychological manipulation that surrounds him? 
Will Kali be able to save him from himself, or is there a mystery surrounding him that may explode in their faces?

Everyone wants to know the truth, but will it set them free?

Sneak Preview of Cover: Louis K Lowy's Die Laughing

IFWG is excited to provide you with a sneak peak at Louis K. Lowy's new science fiction novel, Die Laughing - a wonderfully humorous, and yet at times poignant, story set in the late 1950s. The cover was designed by Laura Givens, a talented illustrator who no doubt will work with us again. Look to see this novel out in late June/July 2011.
