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 think it's pretty much a given that I should thank all the fans that I've gained over the last ten years. We work very hard to bring them material they find fresh and interesting in genre redefining ways, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate our 10th anniversary beginning to wind down than by our original release reaching #1."
