Going Viral, the inaugural episode of Amanda Labonté’s medical thriller Supernatural Causes, hit #1 on the Amazon.ca in the ‘Occult’ category. The novella hit Bestseller status at 11:45PM Newfoundland Standard time on September 26, 2017, peaking at #129 on the overall Amazon.ca charts.
The novella has been steadily climbing for the past few days in anticipation grows for the fourth — and final — book in the serial’s first series: Code Blue. The series explores a medical student who takes a job as an intern at a hospital that caters to vampires, and the consequences that follow.
When asked for comment about the accomplishment, Labonté texted forty-two exclamation marks in a row, then expressed the need to celebrate with Pumpkin Spiced Lattes.
Amanda Labonté lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland, where she gets much of the inspiration for the characters and places about which she writes. Though she knew she wanted to be a writer since the eighth grade, it was many years before she finally walked into a creative writing class and found a new home. As the co-owner of an educational business and mother of two she spends much of her day with kids of all ages. They give her some of the best reading recommendations.
Engen Books would like to congratulate Labonté on this achievement, and thank her fans and peers who helps make this possible.
