2018 was a banner year for Engen Books, but 2019 has all the potential to surpass it: in spades! Those looking for a sneak peak into just some of our upcoming projects are in the right place! From returning entries in favorite series, remastered bestsellers, and brand new talent breaking for the first time: Engen Books is the thing to follow in 2019!
Coral Beach Casefiles
The ten book Black Womb series started it all for Engen Books, starting the Engen Universe by mixing its unique blend of intense scares, compelling characters, and YA aesthetic to make something truly unlike any experience in fiction.
In 2019 we’re repositioning that series with the marketing knowledge we’ve gained after ten years in the industry, with a snazzy new title in Coral Beach Casefiles and bold, innovative new covers from Canada’s most astonishing photographic talent, Kit Sora.
We’re hoping to new branding will break the series into the mainstream with its flare for adult-driven takes on the themes and ideas that took root in narratives like Scream, Scooby-Doo, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. If you’ve been wanting to check out the series but hadn’t known how to start, 2019 is the year to get on board.
Supernatural Causes – Season 2
Amanda Labonté’s fun-filled medical mystery about a hospital that caters to vampires, werewolves, and other things that go bump in the night went bestseller in 2018, and now it’s back with a new season, new rules, and new complications in the life of Liesel Andrews!
The Fifth Queen
The sequel to the dystopian fantasy epic The Six Elemental, The Fifth Queen brings us back into the world with a bold new twist! Kendra Chen thought she knew the direction her life was taking, but when her Uncle reveals a secret about her family, she finds herself on a new path, one that seems to be headed straight for the legendary Six-Elemental.
Look for a cover reveal soon!
Jon Dobbin’s inaugural novel, The Starving, is a weird-west tale mixing science-fiction and western elements. The story has already won acclaim, winning the 2017 48 Hour Novel Writing Marathon in an early draft. Dobbin’s style is laconic and literary, with a dry wit that doesn’t take away from the intense action housed within. The Starving will not disappoint!
Zombies on the Rock: The Republic of Newfoundland
Paul Carberry’s bestselling horror series returns this year, and promises more thrills and chills as the team — desperate to outrun the zombies that have infested the island — makes their way towards the Avalon Peninsula and St. John’s in a desperate attempt at survival. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, now’s the time!
The Last Tree
The first in a Young Reader’s fantasy series written by the astonishingly talented Michelle Churchill, The Last Tree tells the story of Gus, a young boy struggling to find his place in a world of fantasy, fairies, pirates, mermaids and magic!
With art by the legendarily talented Ariel Marsh (Super Galactic Space Explorers, Emma Awesome), The Last Tree is going to be an adventure for young and old alike to enjoy!
The story is already getting rave reviews from those inside the industry. Churchill’s short fiction had been prominently featured in Chillers from the Rock and Kit Sora: The Artobiography, but now she prepares to take center stage and bring her masterpiece to the world!
