Popular YouTuber It's May Again (itsmayagain) has shared her love of all-things Engen via her recurring book review segment : Bookworm.
The first review was on May 7th, when May tackled the newest series from Engen Books, Larry Gent's Never Been to Mars.
"[I've said that] writing in the first person can be exceptionally lazy. This is the exception that proves the rule," said May, on Never Been to Mars.

The winner of the 2014 Engen Books Postcard Review contest has been randomly selected, and it's St. John's native Peter Smith!
For those unaware, during Sci-Fi on the Rock 8 we had a very special promotion, in which everyone who bought one of our novels got a postcard featuring the cover art from Larry Gent's 2013 release Never Been to Mars. Receipiants were informed that if they mailed the postcard back to it and we recieved it by June 30th, 2014, they would be entered in a draw to win a $25 giftcard from Tim Hortons. The only caviat: the back of the postcard had to have a review of an Engen title (any Engen title, not just the one they had purchased).
The review would then be featured on our website for the applicable title.
The review could be positive, negative, or a mixture of the two: it just had to fit on the back of the postcard in its entirety. ... Read More.
