This author signing event will be held on November 3rd, 2018 in Scarborough on the coast of Western Australia. The West Coast Fiction Festival is the brainchild of Perth authors Rachael Johns and Tess Woods. We thought our beautiful home town was the perfect place for authors and readers to all come together and celebrate our love of books!
We have a dedicated team of committee members, some amazing sponsorship deals in the pipeline with major booksellers and publishing houses and we’ve secured a stunning location - the five-star Rendezvous Hotel at Scarborough Beach to hold this special day and night event.
The West Coast Fiction Festival will be an all-day author signing followed by a cocktail party with live music and dancing for both authors and readers. This is the first of its kind event in Western Australia and we’re super excited!
We’ve opened our Expression of Interest submission process for authors of fiction who are local, interstate and international and we’re planning to bring you an epic gathering of some of the best traditionally published and self-published authors all under the one roof.
In November 2017, tickets for the West Coast Fiction Festival will go on sale to the public. We’re offering all-day passes to the signing as well as separate cocktail party tickets or you can get in quick and be one of the first 100 people to purchase special VIP tickets - which will include a sensational goody-bag (seriously amazing!), day pass to the signing with one-hour VIP entry before doors open and entry to the cocktail party including food and selected alcoholic and soft drinks! Click here for more details. We have stars in our eyes with this event and our goal is to raise as much money through ticket sales as we can for Share the Dignity – a charity close to our hearts which supports homeless women in Australia. Our committee is made up entirely of volunteers so all ticket profits will go directly to this fabulous charity. We’ll be updating this website regularly with latest news as we announce signing authors and we have some special announcements up our sleeve for both authors and readers so make sure you pop back in and visit our website regularly!
