Satalyte Publishing Brings David Farland For Australian Tour



David Farland, a multiple-award winning and New York Times bestselling author, will be coming to Australia in September and October.  He will be visiting the Oz Comic Conventions in Syndy and Brisbane, and will be visiting Conflux in Canberra, the Australian National Science Fiction Convention, as the international guest of honor.  There Dave will be signing books and giving presentations on writing.

Dave is well known as a writer and mentor to dozens of famous authors.  In conjunction with his visit, Dave will be teaching two workshops, one in Brisbane and one in Sydney. (See link:

So what is Dave up to right now?  He answers:

My schedule is really busy this fall.  I’m the lead judge for the world’s largest science fiction and fantasy writing contest, the L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future Contest.  It has been going for 33 years now, and each quarter we seem to get more and more entries, and we’ve published several excellent authors from Australia in this past couple of years.  I hope to give some panels on this during my visit, telling how an editor judges a story, and of course how you can win.   

In addition to that, I’m finishing up the ninth and last book of my popular fantasy series, the Runelords, along with several short stories, and is at work on two more novels that I  would like to finish this next year. 

Last of all, I have a deadline to write the screenplay a major motion picture that is based upon one of my novels, a screenplay that we are thinking of filming in Australia. 

But all work and no play makes Dave a dull boy, so at the end of a month here, I’ll be going to Tasmania with my wife to do some hiking and perhaps look for a small home to use as a writing cabin. 

Satalyte Publishing will also be bringing a number of David’s books to Australian shores again, which will be available at all of the above events.
