YouTube loves us, baby!!

Popular YouTuber It’s May Again (itsmayagain) has shared her love of all-things Engen via her recurring book review segment : Bookworm.

On July 11th, she reviewed Matthew LeDrew and Ellen Curtis’s Infinity.

“[In the poker scenes], there is so much stress,” said May. “I felt like there was a lot of pressure that didn’t even need to be said. I was weighted down with the unspoken dread of what was going on. It was terribly stressful… but also very good. I enjoyed the card games thoroughly… There’s a little bit of an obstacle for each character in this novel, so it’s not just one major conflict, there’s a bunch. It’s constantly going, and it kept me going through the book, and it was awesome. I think that’s really ambitious.”

I’ve transitioned to audiobooks when available so that I can enjoy my books while driving, working, or working out. I’m reading Dexter for pleasure, and I’ve insanely decided to read every X-Men comic ever printed for some reason.”

Engen invades Social Media

Engen Books now has pages on four of the major social media marketing sites to help spread the word about its great titles.

Pages have been added on Facebook (left), Twitter, MySpace and YouTube; each of which can provide a specific function for fans of the Engen Universe and are available from the Social Media toolbar located on the main page.

Author interviews and trailers have been available on the Engen Books YouTube for over a year now, and the Facebook page has been a part of our marketing plan from very early on.

The Twitter and MySpace accounts were added recently to round out the Social Media action plan.

“We’re excited about the plans for the social media marketing campaign.” said Matthew LeDrew, head of Engen Books and author of Black Womb and Infinity. “We want to make this an interactive experience for our fans. We’ll be logging on at least once a day to answer questions and reply to posts. In addition, we want to start an online version of the writing panels that go so well at conventions, giving short monthly assignments and feedback on work of young authors.”

Engen Books was started in October 2007 by Matthew LeDrew.
