Last week we celebrated new releases with our Fall Preview (check it out here if you missed it): five whole days with over 20 new titles recommended. While that's a lot of books and your TBR pile for fall may be filling up faster than your dinner plate at Thanksgiving, we aren't quite finished.

For the month of October we’ll be featuring a selection of new titles, from poetry to fiction to non-fiction, that all have one thing in common: they are first books.

The first published book for an author is a very special thing; obviously for the writer, but for the reader as well. As a reader, isn’t it a joy to discover a new writer you connect with? And when you discover a favourite new writer, don’t you want to share it with your fellow book lovers?

Get to know these new authors right from their first book and spread the word that you read them first:

Sons and Fathers by Daniel Goodwin, published by Linda Leith Publishing
Burning Daylight by Christine Fellows, published by ARP Books
How I Won the War for the Allies by Doris Gregory, published by Ronsdale Press
How You Were Born by Kate Cayley, published by Pedlar Press
Two Tragedies in 429 Breaths by Susan Paddon, published by Brick Books
The Inspection House by Emily Horne & Tim Maly, published by Coach House Books

Follow along with us here as we get to know more about the writers and publishers behind some of the books recently released from CanLit’s up-and-coming new voices. We'll be back tomorrow with Sons and Fathers by Daniel Goodwin.
