Are you due for a nostalgic reread of your favorite fantasy series? Or maybe there’s an epic fantasy saga you’ve been wanting to pick up but have been too intimidated to get started. Either way, the Tor/Forge blog has got your back! This week they announced Fantasy Firsts, a celebratory read-along of the first book from fantasy series taking place over the next twelve months.
We are pleased to announce Fantasy Firsts, a yearlong celebration of the first book in a fantasy series. Throughout the year we’ll be talking about old favorites and introducing new fantasy firsts. We’ll feature guest posts from authors, special offers on ebooks, extended excerpts, exciting sweepstakes, and more. You can follow along on our blog, as well as across social media using the hashtag #fantasyfirsts.
Whether you want to gush with us about your favorites or are looking to discover your next great read, we hope you’ll join us in this celebration.
Each month, Tor/Forge will post extended excerpts from the month’s titles and rerun guest posts from the authors. You can read the first five chapters of Royal Street, the first installment in Suzanne Johnson’s urban fantasy Sentinels of New Orleans series. And next week’s spotlight title will be Alyx Dellamonica’s Child of a Hidden Sea, the first of the Hidden Sea Tales; you can read that excerpt on Tuesday, October 18.
What’s more, Tor/Forge is hosting giveaways Goodreads for four of the featured titles: Royal Street, Child of a Hidden Sea, Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World, and Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings.
And if you decide to write a blog post about #fantasyfirsts or take a bookstagram pic, make sure to use that hashtag. Happy reading!
