Pro Se Productions, a leader in cutting edge genre fiction introduces a new Hero in the World of Espionage and Spy Fiction. Richard Monroe springs to treacherous life in NOBODY DIES FOR FREE by author Aaron Smith! After years of loyally serving his country in the CIA, Richard Monroe wants nothing more than early retirement and a peaceful life in Paris with the only woman he's ever truly loved. But when an assassin's bullet takes his happiness away, Monroe embarks on a quest to find the man responsible for the tragedy. Monroe is soon recruited back into the clandestine services, but with a difference. Noe he's a lone agent reporting to a supervisor so mysterious that the official agencies don't even know he exists. In his new position, Monroe will deal with situations too delicate and too dangerous for the CIA or FBI to handle. On his first assignment, he discovers a connection between the mission and the criminal mastermind behind his wife's killing. Business becomes personal again and Richard Monroe sets out to teach his enemies a brutal lesson: NOBODY DIES FOR FREE! From Aaron Smith and Pro Se Productions comes a tense, jaw dropping spy thriller- NOBODY DIES FOR FREE!
IT’S NEVER AS EASY AS IT SOUNDS … American agent Richard Monroe, still working on assignments too sensitive for the official agencies, is shocked to find the President of the United States sitting in his apartment. The First Daughter has run off to seek freedom from the constraints of being the child of the world’s most powerful man. At the president’s request, Monroe is dispatched to find the young woman, a mission that soon turns into something far deadlier than it seems on the surface. Monroe is not the only man chasing Sophie Davis across the nation and, soon, across the world. Also on her trail is a religious zealot with a sinister agenda. As more and more complications arise, the simple search for a runaway turns dangerous. Monroe uncovers a conspiracy as old as the United States and, with thousands of innocent lives at stake, plays a treacherous game against the mysterious man known as The Scorpion. The thrilling sequel to NOBODY DIES FOR FREE-UNDER THE RADAR by Aaron Smith. From Pro Se Productions.

Shadows Over America- a Pro Se Single Shot Signature series of regularly released digital single short stories- is the exploration of one of fiction’s most mysterious and popular worlds by author Aaron Smith!
Dagon ... R’lyeh ... Cthulhu ... the Necronomicon! These are names known only by the most eccentric of scholars, the most daring of occultists, and the most broken-minded of madmen. Forces that dwell in the spaces between spaces, powerful entities that represent the true nature of the universe, things that exist beyond the realm of humanity’s mundane perceptions, to be glimpsed only rarely by physical eyes at a cost that is almost always insanity or death. But there are times when we do come into contact with these unspeakable forces, either by accident or intent, and long, dark shadows are cast over the minds and lives of those who tread the forbidden paths to true knowledge of the vast, harsh universe! Author Aaron Smith explores the mythos created by H.P. Lovecraft and dares readers to come along on this strange exploration of theShadows Over America.
In the debut story in the series, An Exodus of Worms, Garo, a young boy from a primitive tribe in a time before recorded history, is caught up in a series of events brought on by powerful sorcery and resulting in sudden unforgettable horror. If Garo can survive, the course of his life will be changed forever.
Aaron Smith’s Shadows Over America-An Exodus of Worms. A Pro Se Single Shot Signature series from Pro Se Productions.
WHEN THE SHADOW SEES THE SUN is the realization of a concept of a brilliant creative mind that recognized certain things in himself, dark things. Things he thought he might not overcome. He conceived this idea, partly in jest, but more in earnest desire. A book focused on creative souls who experience depression and struggle with horrors that they exorcise by putting them to paper, but just can’t always let go of that way. He wanted there to be a book out there for creatives (and others who might benefit) by creatives to address the struggles so many endure and to offer ways to cope, to deal, and to move on. To overcome. Logan L. Masterson lost his battle with what plagued him on March 29, 2016. And this book, his idea, is now a reality, to help bring to light the issues creative souls do endure, many similar to anyone else, some unique to our own little family. All proceeds from this book will go to a variety of charities, local as well as state and national, to promote suicide intervention and prevention as well as to assist with working through and surviving depression, with a focus being on those who are artists, writers, performers, etc. affected by this. In these pages, authors John G. Hartness, Tim Byrd, Ernest Russell, Phillip Drayer Duncan, Mark Bousquet, Thomas R. Skidmore, Nikki Nelson-Hicks, Andrea Judy, Scott Hancock, Joe Hilliard, Herika R. Raymer, Melinda LaFevers, Alexander S. Brown, Joseph Lamere, Lee Houston Junior, Ethan Nahte, Kristi King-Morgan, Jason Holmes, Lou Mougin, Judy Wall Crump, Mark Steinwachs, Nancy Hansen, Chuck Miller, Aaron Smith, I. A.

Gillentine tear open their souls for you to read. Introduction by Julianna Robinson. Cover by Adam Shaw. And make no mistake. This book is about and because of Logan L. Masterson.
