As our titles expand through the end of our tenth year and beyond, both new and longtime readers have been left wondering: how do we distinguish Engen Universe titles from the other great titles Engen Books offers?
The answer, for our eBook titles, is this special new Engen Universe bookmark, which will be located discreetly at the top left corner of all Engen Universe eBooks, starting soon. EBook copies of Infinity series, Jacobi Street, Reptilia, and The Theogony have already received this addition, with the Black Womb and Xander Drew series’ to follow soon.
The symbol is an easily identifiable mark of not only the quality that is represented in every Engen Book, but also the shared continuity of stories, narrative, themes, and secrets of The Engen Universe!
Black Womb, the original novel from Matthew LeDrew, has gained #1 Bestseller status on Amazon, in both the ‘Superhero’ and ‘Coming of Age’ Fantasy categories. The novel peaked at #86 on the Amazon.ca Free Kindle Store ranks. Engen Books would like to congratulate LeDrew on this achievement.
The novel peaked on September 24 2017, less than two weeks after Engen Books’ collection of Linda Blagdon’s poetry became the #1 Bestselling Canadian Poetry book, attracting the attention of both local and national media.

I thought it might be fun to shed some light on the creative process here at Engen Books by showing the things that didn’t make it to the production floor. It’s a truism that you can learn as much about people by what they don’t say as what they do, and I don’t think we’re any exception.
Ignorance is Bliss was the first Engen title to receive international distribution. The seven titles published before it were only available directly through us, back in the early days of small-press publishing when acquiring a distributor was difficult. As such, the cover was a turning point for the Black Womb series: we could stay with the black & white ‘horizontal window’ look we’d been using all along because of the limitations of our first printer, or we could shift to a new design.
Those who know we I’m slow to change on such matters, so it should surprise no one that my initial impulse was to stay the course. Thus was born the cover above: which remained black & white despite our new printer being capable of color, and retained the design scheme of the first five Black Womb novels, albeit with a slightly bigger size.
