Calling all Twitter fans!
In February 2011, Tor/Forge Books announced #TorChat, a sf/f genre-themed, hour-long chat series hosted on Twitter. Guest authors will join fans in a lively, informative and entertaining discussions of all that’s hot in genre fiction (140 characters at a time) from 4 to 5 PM Eastern on the third Wednesday of every month. Each #TorChat will revolve around a different genre topic of interest, with new guest authors and exclusive fan sweepstakes here on the Tor/Forge blog.
Follow @torbooks and be sure to check back here for updates on the next chat’s theme and guests, plus suggest a topic for a future #TorChat!
This month’s chat will be held on Wednesday, January 23rd, and we’re incredibly pleased to announce that our featured guest will be… Brandon Sanderson, the author of A Memory of Light, the final book of the Wheel of Time!
