2017 was a crazy, nonstop roller-coaster ride of a tenth anniversary year here at Engen Books, but if anyone thought that we were going to shift down a gear in 2018 they guessed wrong! 2018 is looking like it’s going to to be the biggest year yet for Engen Books, with new titles, new authors, and new entire divisions of our company starting to peak over the horizon!
We can’t say much about some of these deals until the contracts are finalized and the ink is dry, but here’s a brief look at what we can tell you is in store from Engen Books in 2018: Continue reading Looking Ahead to 2018 | Engen Books
*Submissions for this thread are closed*
Over the last three years, the From the Rock series has become one of the preeminent anthology series’ in Atlantic Canada. We have been home to some amazing established talent and helped some new authors break through that have gone on to dominate their fields, becoming genre bestsellers in their own right. From the Rock is a title readers consistently ask for, review well, and a great way for avid readers to get introduced to indie talent they might find interesting.
And this year, we’re doing it again! Continue reading Call for Dystopian Submissions!
Well everyone it’s been ten long months, but the submissions call for Chillers from the Rock is finally closed! We have gotten a metric ton of submissions this year, and our submissions editor Ellen Curtis has already dutifully begun going through them!
We have gotten over fifty short story submissions this year! Over the next month or so these are going to be divided into different categories, read, and discussed at length by our team. The deadline was changed to October this year so that we could have time to work with authors whose work needs just a little touching up, giving us a chance to do some back and forth and get even more of the talented people in our region in. 🙂
Submitted authors will be notified as soon as we can narrow down the submissions to a manageable number, and we will start formally announcing your From the Rock team for this year in January.
Also in January we will be announcing the next From the Rock genre, so be sure and keep an eye out for that! It’s going to be a fun one! 🙂
Good luck to everyone who submitted. Have fun to those of you who are moving on to try NaNoWriMo, remember to take a breather in December and spend some time with family & friends to recharge, then come right back here in January for announcements and encouragement towards our next collection!
Never Look Back! ❤
