Slime Spewing Vampire Velociraptors
When Pea opened a portal and the alien cat, Max Gigan, jumped through from another dimension, he certainly didn't expect the talking tomcat to stay on as a family pet. He soon learns it can come in handy to have a fur ball from an alternate universe around when his friend re-opens the portal letting in vampire velociraptors who want to slime and eat the whole city! Pea’s dad is one of the first infected. But his dear old dad isn’t the only one. The dinosaurs escape the museum where the portal opened, and rampage through Milwaukee. As Pea's dad gets sicker, the BMX gang joins together with the feline army to corner the raptors and use them to develop an antidote. But Pea's meddling step-monster brothers threaten to ruin everything! A city wide alert goes out for the misidentified "turkeys" while Pea and his gang try to stay ahead of the hunt. Can the kids capture the dinos and get them home before they control everyone with their vampire powers? Will Pea’s dad remain infected forever? Join Pea and his gang in their battle against the SLIME SPEWING VAMPIRE VELOCIRAPTORS.
Mind Over Bullies: A Mob Forms
"In this intricate YA tale, a group of teenagers with special skills unite to confront bullying, though they end up fighting crime, murder, and terrorism. Eventually, MOB evolves into a true crime-fighting band of superheroes. Reminiscent of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, the teens outshine adults. They operate in their own world more or less autonomously, sometimes cooperating with grownups, other times circumventing them. Filled with numerous side plots involving family history, a mysterious corporation, a rare disease, terrorist plots, and more, Smith's tale ties it all together seamlessly while continually sounding the bullying theme, which intensifies from everyday school harrying to a device for recruiting criminals. The conclusion sets up the next MOB exploit." - Kirkus Reviews

Many congratulations to them and their support of emerging poets over the years! “This is travel writing at its most profound.

Gloria Eden, known as ‘Glory’, is a semi-literate, middle-aged woman living on the edge – a bag-lady. Her world is that of urban dereliction and social vermin – drop-outs, misfits, the homeless. Her redeeming feature is the abundant energy with which she confronts a seemingly hopeless situation, often turning what might appear to be suffering and misery into comedy. Then, unexpectedly, she comes to the rescue of a young boy, Darren, who has run away from home. Soon they are both on the run from the powers-that-be. In her debut novel, Adrienne Silcock enters the mind of this enterprising anarchic survivor and gives her a voice forged from vernacular speech at its most vigorous. Although written in a more conventional idiom, the six short stories that complete the volume are thematically related to Vermin and continue Adrienne Silcock’s exploration of loners and social outsiders.
