Supernatural Causes | System Failure

Liesel Andrews and Jax Halloran have been kidnapped!
Liesel’s apprenticeship in the underworld of vampires, werewolves and witches is quickly spiraling out of control and even her alliance with the powerful vampire lieutenant, Jax, can’t save her from this scrape.
With a mysterious virus still sweeping through the underworld, it’s a race against time. Liesel is using all her medical knowledge as an intern at St. Benedict’s Hospital for the the Underworld to try to find a cure, but she and Jax have been interrupted from their work by a deadly and unpredictable new force threatening the entire underworld.
And what of Liesel’s daytime life as a university student in the human world? She’s losing control of her grip on that, too, as she struggles with her increasingly conflicted feelings about Jax.

webCopies are ordered and will first be available at Avalon Expo, along with a simultaneous digital release for those who just can’t wait, but the early reviews for Jacobi Street are  coming and have blown our expectations out of the water! But don’t take out word for it: look and see!

“Jacobi Street paints a vivid picture of everyday life in a bohemian neighborhood. By the time you realize everything isn’t what it seems, it’ll be too late to put the book down. While it might not be the place to settle down, Jacobi Street is definitely worth the visit.”

The 48-Hour Writing Slideshow!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This past weekend was the first of what we think will be many 48-Hour Writing Marathons, sponsored by THE Tutoring Center, Engen Books, and Thrive! A great time was had by all, we raised a lot of money and collectively wrote over 60,000 words, the majority of which (over 10k!) went to Sci-Fi from the Rock author Stacey Oakley.

Lots of authors and writing enthusiasts showed up to write and enjoy a quiet creative space with which to work and bounce ideas off of similarly-motivated individuals. All said an amazing weekend, and we thank Call of the Sea and Supernatural Causes author Amanda Labonté for arranging it!

Supernatural Causes | Critical Condition

How can a virus be attacking both vampires and werewolves in the same way?
It’s the mystery Liesel Andrews must solve. A mortal human with a knack for healing creatures her own kind can’t even see, Liesel needs to find the source of the outbreak before it’s too late. Working with the inscrutable vampire lieutenant, Jax Halloran, the pair are about to uncover secrets that are far more dangerous than either of them could imagine.
At the same time, all her evenings spent moonlighting in the underworld are having consequences for normal life as a student and for her relationship with her human boyfriend.
What she really could use is some time to figure things out. But time is the one thing Liesel doesn’t have.

Supernatural Causes by Amanda Labonté | Review by Ali House

020Fans of True Blood*, the Anita Blake series**, and other stories with tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome vampires, should definitely pick up Supernatural Causes by Amanda Labonté.

Vampires, Werewolves, and Witches live in harmony with humans, although the majority of humans don’t realize it. Liesel Andrews is a pre-med student who can see supernatural beings for what they truly are, making her the perfect choice to work at the local supernatural hospital. However, her busy-yet-mundane life gets interrupted when she’s called upon to investigate a mysterious illness affecting the vampire community.

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.
