Smilodon
by James Paddock

Smilodon (Sabre-Toothed Cat) Trilogy Book 1

“...images that begin to stretch our imaginations, tweak our worldview. Before long we find ourselves believing the unbelievable. James Paddock has that ability.” —DJMurphy, author of “Requiem for the Puppet Master”

“A zip through this tangle of mystery will leave you panting for more Paddock." —Michael J. Stedman, author of “´A´ for Argonaut”

“The writing is invisible--meaning that it gets out of the way and allows the reader to submerge themselves in the tale.” —Mary O. Paddock, author of “The Fassen Files”

"This was a very gripping book... it's intensity and suspense picked up speed like a freight train and did not stop until the very last page. James Paddock has a knack for wrapping the reader in a spider web of intrigue and suspense that will leave you with tingling feet and the hair on your neck standing on end. I highly recommend this book a MUST READ!!" superman_all_the_time.



Imagine recreating the saber-toothed cat for fun? The possibility sounds exciting, but the reality could be nightmarish. In James Paddock’s novel, Smilodon, the main character is drawn into in a world where man becomes the hunted. It is fast-paced fiction where cats change the rules and people run for their lives.

Tigers in the wild and a lucrative fee lure freelance writer Zechariah Price into the frozen mountains of Montana. The assignment drops him into a world of Bengal tigers, illegal aliens, prehistoric saber-toothed cats, and psychic premonitions. As the possibility of death by man and animal surrounds him, he quickly learns that he too is destined to become food for the cats. Trapped between man and beast, his assignment turns into that of survival.

Smilodon intertwines the exciting possibility and nightmarish reality of cloning in an age in which advanced genetic engineering is rapidly evolving. “Consider the very real possibility of cloning your recently deceased pet,” says the author. “We are on the brink of just such a thing. If after your pet, what about your child, or an entire genetically engineered perfect society?” Smilodon will send one back to thinking, “What if?”

My Imagination Dreams
by
Regina Puckett

DescriptionThat Girl
Every now and then I flash back to a simpler time
Where pain was a stumped toe from a failed climb
Heartbreak was losing your best doll or toy train
Joy came from running and dancing out in the rain
Your best friend sat with you in the corner when caught
True love came from the heart and couldn't be bought
But then I open my eyes and look around at this world
I think somewhere along the way I may have lost that girl


Crystal Conquest
by
Doug J. Cooper

DescriptionAliens fire the first shots in their invasion of Earth, and that’s when Criss realizes he’s outmatched. He spent years preparing for this moment, working with his human leadership to develop weapons and refine strategies. Created with the thinking and reasoning ability of a thousand people, Criss never expected the invaders to arrive with an artificial intelligence that dwarfed his capabilities, nor did he expect to be the target of their vengeance. When he squares off against the alien goliath to protect the world, defeat is certain. Or is it? Together with Sid, Cheryl, and Juice—a covert operative, Fleet officer, and crystal scientist—Criss struggles to defeat the aggressors and save civilization from annihilation. But can he outsmart the alien intelligence in a titanic battle of wits? And can he do so before Earth lies in ruins?

Fear of Shadows
by
Stephanie Parker McKean

DescriptionSelf-sufficient Texas Eugenia Thornhill espouses many rebellions, including giving any man authority over her heart or her life. She hates the mother who named her “Texas” after her birth state instead of giving her a real name. She hates the mother who ran off and left her young child with a cold, emotionless father.

Texas brags that she’s not afraid of anything—not even spiders or snakes. Her boast proves empty when she meets childhood friend West Strom and realizes she is deathly afraid of shadows, but clueless as to why. Time and again she shatters her nascent romance with West by mindlessly shrieking and running out of her childhood home, fleeing the shadows that terrify her.
