Tor Books Acquires Three New Fantasy Novels From Travis Baldree


Published on July 17, 2023

Tor Books, in the US and the UK, announced the acquisition of world rights to three new novels from New York Times bestselling author, Travis Baldree. The books will be standalone fantasies set in the world of Baldree’s bestselling Legends & Lattes and beyond, taking us to new horizons with new characters; and all three with the heart, charm, and signature voice we’ve come to know and love from Baldree.

Stevie Finegan of the Zeno Agency negotiated the deal with Executive Editor at Tor Books US Lindsey Hall and with Bella Pagan, Publishing Director of Pan Macmillan’s Tor imprint.

Of the acquisition, Hall remarked:

“Working with Travis Baldree and getting to know Viv the orc in her many forms through Legends & Lattes and Bookshops & Bonedust has been a balm and a pleasure. In his books about orcs, dwarves, necromancy, and magic swords, Baldree also speaks to the deepest truths of humanity, centering the small but meaningful joys of life—like warm drinks, good books, and old friends—that make it all worthwhile. I can’t wait to see where his stories take us in the future.”

Balrdree enthused:

“It would be a vast understatement to say that I have been humbled and grateful for the incredible support, enthusiasm and kindness that I’ve received from Tor and Macmillan as we’ve worked together on my first two books. It has been a joy to get to know the fabulous team there. I’m beyond delighted to announce that I’ll be writing a further three books to be published by Tor as well. Thank you so much to everyone who has responded to my stories in such a positive way, and made this improbable journey possible. You have all changed my life.”

The first of the new books is planned for publication in Fall 2025.

Travis Baldree is the author of the instant New York Times bestseller Legends & Lattes, and its forthcoming sequel, Bookshops & Bonedust, as well a full-time audiobook narrator who has lent his voice to hundreds of stories. Before that, he spent decades designing and building video games like Torchlight, Rebel Galaxy, and Fate. Apparently, he now also writes books. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his very patient family and their small, nervous dog.
