Profusion is the third book in the Diffusion series. It was released on September 1, 2017. I love the awesome cover design (a big thank you to designer, Donna Harriman Murillo). Profusion is packed with new action, higher stakes, and (if I do say so myself) terrifying creatures. And it's a whopping 115,000 words!

Here's the teaser:
How can you save humanity if your only hope is to call upon an entity that could destroy us all?
As nations argue over who should possess the alien entity called the Lamotelokhai, 15-year-old Bobby Truex knows the answer—no one should. After all, he’s the one who told it to go into hiding. He knows, better than anyone, that misusing it leads to death and destruction. After months trying to overcome his guilt, Bobby’s life is suddenly shattered, forcing him to risk everything and once again ask for help from the most dangerous object imaginable.
Meanwhile, Quentin and Lindsey Darnell are tormented by the memory of leaving their son Addison to die in the Papuan rainforest. After learning he is still alive, they set out to find him but are shocked by what they discover. Addison is now part of something truly amazing, something that may result in the next stage of human evolution.
Now, Bobby must not only survive—he must make his way to the other side of the world to find Quentin and Lindsey. The fate of the planet depends on it.

Here are a few of my favorite reviews of Profusion:
"This is a highly original book. There is a central cast of characters that know each other in one way or another and Stan Smith uses these characters to make a story braided together by their adventures. Three people are kidnapped by doctors with unrealistic ideas, two people are headed to jungle to search for the child they were forced to leave behind after a plane crash and one man prefers to live in the jungle with the natives. But they aren't the only characters. There are tree kangaroos that want to protect every person in the world, disgusting, vicious, creatures that have big appetites, and a life form unknown to science. Believe it or not, it all comes together in a fast moving story you won't want to stop reading."

"Truly enjoyable series that has a very interesting storyline and unique characters that flow together seamlessly through time. Highly recommended."
-Paul Freebairn on Amazon
"Where do I start?..... I was waiting for this sequel for months, and it was worth the wait.
Bobby, again, plays a pivital part. The Lamo Lamoteliki...(the clay) is divided, regrown and divided again... (kinda' neat). There are the usual bad guys. The ones that won't listen to any suggestions or other information. Their actions result in a horde of 'monsters'. Meanwhile Quentin and Lindsley go looking for their son. The mbolops take on a mission. There is an awesome, Sci-Fi jet.
The series could end here. But there is something happening... Mr Smith, please write another sequel!!!!"
