Winner of Writers of the Future Vol. 38,
Creative Director, Brand Manager, Award
Winning Designer

"Apex is a community of writers dedicated to publishing. I can’t explain how badly I needed this. As an aspiring author, there is a glut of gurus out there pointing in every direction based on what has worked for them or misinterpreting what they think worked for others. David leads a group of pros who not only know the many ways to succeed, but are happy to explain the hows and whys the different ways that work for different writers. And the personal support and relationships I’m building with like-minded people is incalculably important to my career."

Elizabeth Chatsworth

Winner of Writers of the Future Vol. 37,
Author of the #1 Bestselling Novel THE BRASS QUEEN

“David Farland’s writing courses gave me the tools to build my writing career. I wrote the first chapter of *The Brass Queen* as a worldbuilding exercise in the *Story Puzzle* class. Dave’s kind words of encouragement inspired me to expand that exercise into an entire novel. As I worked through Dave’s courses, I learned how to create unforgettable characters, thrilling plotlines, and emotionally resonant themes. I also gained an insider’s perspective of the publishing industry that helped me to become a traditionally published author. Dave shared the tools to build my rocket ship and pointed me toward the stars. I couldn’t have wished for a better launch!”

Drawing on the Power of Resonance in Writing

Drawing on the Power of Resonance in Writing

Every genre of writing has a “secret language” that builds up around it, a way of presenting itself to the world.

In this book, Dave helps you see the importance of learning how to resonate well with other books and films in your genre while resonating with real-life experiences, so that your novel will garner an audience as big as the genre that you write in.

Blockbuster Book Signings

Blockbuster Book Signings will tell you everything you need to know to make your signings a success. This insightful book includes: – Ideas for Alternative Venues – Effective Publicity Strategies – Optimal Dates and Seasons for Signings – A Checklist of Items to Bring and Tasks to Complete and more. 

Whether you’re a new author or a seasoned one, throw a book signing that makes readers wanting more–more books, more of you, and more signings.

Million Dollar Outlines

Many writers can tell you how to outline, or not, but in this #1 Amazon bestseller, Dave takes it several steps further by helping you decide not just how to outline a novel, but how to create one that will become a bestseller.

Writing Wonder

From the time when children first began gathering around campfires, we have been seeking tales of wonder–the feeling you get when something is strange and exciting.

Most of the books we read are what I call “wonder literature”, yet writing wonder is a lesson seldom taught.

This book will delve into what “wonder literature” truly means and how to increase the level of wonder in your novel.
