Day One of the 2016 NGX (Newfoundland Gaming Expo is complete, and despite not being a gaming-based entertainment platform, Engen Books was there in style around with several other prominent authors, including award-winning talents like Scott Bartlett and author of the Gold and Steel fantasy saga Christopher P. Walsh.
“The gaming community and the community that enjoys and understands our fiction has a lot in common,” said Matthew LeDrew. “NGX is a great and welcoming convention. It’s leans towards gaming but is very all-inclusive, and we’ve seen a lot of our old friends and Engeneers from other conventions today. It’s a wonderful convention and I’m very grateful to Sandbox Gaming for arranging it.”
Engen shares some of its writing staff with the Sanbox Gaming team, including Melanie Collins (author of Woven by the Thief) and Matthew Daniels (author of Healer’s Hoards), both of which were featured in the April 2016 anthology collection Sci-Fi from the Rock.
Also in attendance were Ellen Curtis (author of the Infinity series) and freelance editor Erin Vance, who in addition to helming the aforementioned Sci-Fi from the Rock anthology has also done work on Cinders, As Fierce as Steel, and Exodus of Angels.
We’re hoping for an even bigger turnout tomorrow! If you haven’t stopped by yet, come by the vendor’s room and check us out! Matthew LeDrew and Erin Vance will be there from 9am – 6pm tomorrow selling books, talking about writing, and giving advice on how to get published and entry into the 2017 Fantasy from the Rock collection!
