Reviews

“I appreciated the new mythology for the vampires. Good storyline that makes the reader want another installment.”
Barnes & Noble Customer Review

“Labonté adds to the pre-existing mythology of vampires, giving it some new blood (pun intended), and adding a level of curiosity to the virus (just… how?). As the first installment, Going Viral sets up the world and introduces key characters, giving you enough information to understand what’s going on, while leaving enough unanswered questions to keep you curious.”
Ali House, author of The Six Elemental

“[Supernatural Causes] kept me coming back to read more. Another must-have with serialized fiction is to end on a high note. This was the home run for “Supernatural Causes.” Labonté’s scene reveals an understanding of what serials require for continued readership and success.”
AJ Ryan, author of Kinetic.

 

Revolutionary new publishing idea… or Ooops, misprint apology :/

errorIt’s hard to get people to read two things: the closing credits of movies, and the acknowledgements of a paperback book. Ten years ago Marvel Studios had the brilliant idea of post-credits scenes and since then people stay to the very last minute of genre film credits now… so we thought, “How can we make people read the acknowledgements of a paperback novel?” The Engen Staff came up with a genius solution: insert them directly into the meat of the text. Put it mid-sentence, heck even mid-WORD and people will have to read it. Clearly, this will become a trend that takes the publishing world by storm. The revolutionary idea will first appear in Supernatural Causes: The Complete First Season print edition.

Either that or it’s an annoying gaff we only just caught, a few weeks before we go to our biggest convention of the calendar year. :/ Continue reading Revolutionary new publishing idea… or Ooops, misprint apology :/

Supernatural Causes becomes a #1 Occult Bestseller on Amazon!

Supernatural Causes, Going Viral, Amanda Labonte, coverGoing 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.
