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?”

Trial by Fire
by
Penny Fletcher

DescriptionRonnie Monroe had lost everyone she'd ever loved including her husband and child, and finally, her twin. Now, in the middle of the biggest government cover-up she'd investigated since beginning her career as a journalist fifteen years before, she found herself falling in love with the two men closest to the story. If the things NASA had recently discovered were released, they would affect every major religious belief in the world. Ronnie stared at the new star projected on the NASA screen. It looked so harmless, pretty actually. No one would guess it was aimed straight at the center of the Earth. But Blake and Rashid weren't looking at the star. Both were staring directly at Ronnie, the passions they shared reflecting in their eyes.

Sea Cutter
by

DescriptionIt's 1771 and I've just gotten a secret message from Father who-all of New Bedford says-went down with his ship in 1769, when I was eleven. I know I promised my old friend Wayland not to put to sea without Mother's permission, but what's more important-keeping a promise or finding Father? If you want to come with me, help me find a ship bound for the South Atlantic, and we'll search together for a legendary island, and Father.

The Sacred Book of G
by
Gonzalo W. Bénard

Description"The Sacred Book of G" is a book of philosophy. A sacred book. A Journal of an inner journey of life. Written on different rhythms and times and locations. "The Sacred Book of G" was composed like a music sheet for a strings' quartet. It's music. In real life. It's minded. About brains, and inner thoughts on society - which does not make much sense. It's critical in its wonderings. Facing the world as it goes. It's fire in its dynamic and water so you can dive in. It's an inner brain coming out. A book of memoirs to remind yourself that life should be lived. An autistic journal to remind yourself that life goes on and that we must learn how to embrace it. No matter how. It's a book about life. A book defeating death. Written following the rhythm of the thoughts. Inner ones. With inner doubts. About life itself and how we all should manage it.
