The Starving, the debut novel from Jon Dobbin, hit #1 on the Amazon.ca in the 'Westerns' and 'Occult Fiction' categories. The novel hit Bestseller status at 2:35PM Newfoundland Standard time on April 18, 2019, peaking at #95 on the overall Amazon.ca charts.
Dobbin has enjoyed repeated success since his first stories, Man of Fire and The Chosen, were featured in the 2018 Chillers from the Rock anthology. Since then, every work attached to Dobbin has gone bestseller.
A native to the St. John’s metro region, Dobbin tied for first place in the 2017 48-Hour Writing Marathon, sponsored by THE Creative Learning, Thrive, and Engen Books. He describes himself as “the father of three, the husband to an amazing wife, an educator, and a tattoo and beard enthusiast.”
Dobbin's work has appeared in Chillers from the Rock, Dystopia from the Rock, and Kit Sora: The Artobiography.
Engen Books would like to congratulate Dobbin on this achievement, and thank his fans and peers who helps make this possible.
