Local Hero Press and Author Ian Thomas Healy are pleased to announce April 1, 2014, as the official release date for Jackrabbit, the fifth book in the popular Just Cause Universe series of superhero fiction.
Jay is having a pretty bad day at school. His popular cheerleader girlfriend just dumped him and a jock spilled soda all over his brand new Nikes. So when the God of Rabbits recruits him to save the world from an invasion of interstellar cockroaches, it seems like it might be a pretty cool gig.
Unfortunately, in the spectrum of god-like abilities, rabbits rank pretty low, and Jay receives the ability to make snarky wisecracks, jump real high, and . . . that’s about all.
With all other superheroes snapped up by the Cockroach God and his minions running rampant in the extradimensional Gods’ Home, Jay and his newfound ally Bluebird are the only two unlikely heroes left to defend humanity.
We are doomed . . .
Ian is giving away three signed Advance Reading Copies (ARCs) through a Goodreads Giveaway.

Releasing November 29, 2013 worldwide, DEEP SIX broadens the Just Cause Universe with a tale set in the deep underground prison for convicted parahuman offenders.
When criminals are convicted, they go to jail. When they have parahuman abilities, they go to Deep Six, the most secure prison facility in the world. Six thousand feet underground, nobody has ever escaped from the maximum security facility.
A parahuman terrorist called Misrule engineers a mass breakout, and it falls to a pair of prison guards to stop the world’s most dangerous criminals from reaching freedom, and Just Cause won’t be able to help them. Despite being overmatched and underpowered, the two guards must find a way to prevent the escapees from their ultimate goal.
