FROM CONVENTION PERSONALITY TO MULTIDIMENSIONAL PULP HERO-‘PETER PIXIE, MAYOR OF THE MULTIVERSE: THE BLACK WAND’ DEBUTS!

Pro Se

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

To the world at large, Peter Pixie is an amazing personality fighting for what’s right within and outside various fandoms. Pro Se Productions reveals yet another way that Peter Pixie helps not only this world, but many across multiple dimensions.   The first book in the PETER PIXIE, MAYOR OF THE MULTIVERSE line in Pro Se’s YOUNGPULP! Imprint, THE BLACK WAND by JH Fleming, is now available in print and digital formats.

It's not easy being the Mayor of the Multiverse, but for Peter Pixie, it's more than a job; it's who he is. Rescuing those in need, recovering dangerous artifacts, bringing warring groups together--it's all in a day's work for Peter Pixie. When the Sky Marshal shows up at Peter's office with a tip about an item called the Black Wand, an artifact powerful enough to rip holes in reality, Peter takes off for the autumn planet of Toren to search for it. Unfortunately, he's not the only one with an interest in the wand. Soon after arriving, Peter comes across Genevieve, a young girl whose grandmother has gone missing. Never one to leave someone in need, Peter promises to help her--only to quickly realize that Genevieve and her grandmother are connected to the wand somehow. Time is running out, and the Daughters of Hecate, at first content to hide in the shadows, are beginning to move. Unless Peter finds the wand first, it could mean not only the end of Toren, but of the multiverse itself. PETER PIXIE, MAYOR OF THE MULTIVERSE: THE BLACK WAND by JH Fleming includes an introduction by Peter Pixie himself. From Pro Se Productions.

Featuring a fantastic cover and logo design by Jeffrey Hayes and print formatting by Antonino Lo Iacono and Marzia Marina, THE BLACK WAND is available in print at https://www.amazon.com/Peter-Pixie-Mayor-Multiverse-Black/dp/107343754X/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=peter+pixie+mayor+of+the+multiverse&qid=1560550669&s=gateway&sr=8-2 for $7.99.

DARKNESS FALLS ON ACTION AND ADVENTURE- PRO SE DEBUTS NEW AUTHOR IMPRINT-KIMBERLY RICHARDSON’S PULP GOTHIC!

Pro Se


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pro Se Productions, a cutting edge Publisher of genre fiction, has built its impressive catalog around strong, prolific writers willing to push style and stories beyond traditional boundaries.  Kimberly Richardson’s very nature as an author is to play outside of the box with every word and to challenge the very concept of how to craft a tale. Due to this unique passion, Pro Se Productions proudly announces the creation of an author imprint showcasing her unique take on genre fiction- KIMBERLY RICHARDSON’S PULP GOTHIC.

KR PG 01 (1).jpg

“Fiction,” says Tommy Hancock Editor-in-Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is a vehicle which can take readers in so many directions.   Kimberly Richardson’s work falls squarely into the realm of genre fiction, regardless if she’s writing a tale of fantasy and death or literally creating a brand new sub genre like gothic super heroes.  Two fisted action is not only sometimes a part of what happens in a Kimberly Richardson tale, it’s literally how her use of phrases and imagery impact readers, a one-two punch that both entertains and challenges one to look beyond the surface, to dare to enter the dark underbelly of what motivates her characters and in many cases what her worlds are literally constructed from.  KIMBERLY RICHARDSON’S PULP GOTHIC is the stage for Kimberly’s very own Grand Guignol of Genre.”

Numerous works are scheduled to be released as a part of KIMBERLY RICHARDSON’S PULP GOTHIC, including ORDER OF THE BLACK SILK II, a cyberpunk novel, a murder mystery, all written by Richardson, and an anthology of short stories by other writers bearing the name of the imprint as its title.

OLD SCHOOL NEW PULP FICTION FINDS A HOME-PRO SE PRODUCTIONS DEBUTS NEW AUTHOR IMPRINT- DERRICK FERGUSON’S POWER PLAY!

Pro Se


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Known for publishing top notch storytellers with unique and innovative approaches, Pro Se Productions, a Genre Fiction and New Pulp Publisher, announces its third Author Imprint since opening its door in 2010.  At Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention the weekend of April 12th, Pro Se Productions proudly unveiled the logo and plans for DERRICK FERGUSON’S POWER PLAY, an imprint to focus on the work of Award Winning New Pulp Author and Creator of Dillon, Derrick Ferguson.

3avka5b-.jpeg.jpg

“A discussion of New Pulp,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “hardly ever happens where Derrick Ferguson and his character Dillon don’t come up.  For many, Dillon is the penultimate New Pulp creation, due in large part to the various influences wrapped up in the character as well as Derrick’s passionate, out of the box storytelling.  Derrick takes everything about Pulp that fans love and not only puts his own spin on it, but turns it on its head and takes readers on a wild, almost magical roller coaster ride with every story he weaves, be it Dillon or Bass Reeves or a C-Movie adaptation that he turns into an A list book.”

“Even though,” Hancock continues, “Derrick is known amongst New Pulp for Dillon, the man’s imagination goes so much farther that Pro Se felt like it was time he had his very own sandbox to play in.  Much like our two previous imprints, DERRICK FERGUSON’S POWER PLAY will be an imprint that will feature of all of Derrick’s Pro Se work written by his own hand as well as anthologies created and overseen by Derrick that allow his ideas to grow thanks to writers personally selected by Derrick.  One anthology concept I know I hope to see in POWER PLAY has been floating around between myself and Derrick for a couple of years and will be music to fans’ ears should it happen.”

The first new work to be featured in the POWER PLAY imprint will be DILLON’S ODD JOBS, an anthology of Dillon stories by other authors, due out by June 2019. Pro Se intends to publish a minimum of 2-3 books within the imprint yearly.

PUBLISHER RELEASES FIRST CHILDREN’S BOOK ‘FUNNY ZOMBIE’ CREATED BY TWELVE YEAR OLD DEBUTS!

Pro Se

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pro Se Productions, a publisher of Genre Fiction and New Pulp, proudly announces its first foray into books aimed at a very special audience-children under the age of 8.  As a part of Pro Se’s YOUNGPULP! imprint, FUNNY ZOMBIE by Kailee Hancock and illustrated by Jo Sumrall is now available in print and digital formats.

“Children’s books,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “and I mean those that are aimed at small children, are something that Pro Se has looked at for a while. Other companies have made that leap and we’ve considered it, but have waited on an idea that would fit what we do perfectly, be different enough to be a Pro Se book and still be enjoyed by kids.  And it just so happens my own daughter, Kailee, had that very idea when she was five years old. It has taken seven years to get FUNNY ZOMBIE turned into images and text that could be made into a book, but we are finally here and I am so proud of Kailee and the work Jo Sumrall has put into this volume as well. Kailee, at her present age of twelve, did a rewrite of the book as she originally wrote it at age five, and it’s now time for the world at large to meet the most unique and diverse bunch of friends in any book ever. FUNNY ZOMBIE is a small child’s view of the world through the eyes of beings that we normally see as scary, but really can be just like us as well.”

Funny Zombie
By Kailee Hancock

FUNNY ZOMBIE is a book for small children written by Kailee Hancock. Now twelve years old, Kailee first created Funny Zombie when she was five. Now this unique character and his entire host of spooky and humorous friends star in their own children's book.

THREE CLASSIC COMIC HEROES FIND A HOME IN PROSE! PUBLISHER LICENSES ORIGINAL SKYMAN, THE FACE, AND NATURE BOY!

Pro Se

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A publisher known for resurrecting characters that deserve new stories, Pro Se Productions announces that it has licensed three comic characters, two from the 1940s and one from the 1950s, from Ronald Frantz.  Author of FANDOM: CONFIDENTIAL, Frantz is also the Founder and Publisher of ACE Comics and the rights holder to the original Skyman and The Face, both characters originally published by Columbia Comics, and Nature Boy, originally published by Charlton Comics in 1956-57.  Pro Se will publish prose anthologies, digest novels, and full length novels that feature the three characters individually, with at least one of the characters interacting in a shared universe setting.

“After working with the greats of the comics industry,” says Frantz, “such as Ditko, Boyette, Toth, Gill, Defuccio, and more, I’m happy to see The Original Skyman, The Face, and Nature Boy in the care of Tommy Hancock and Pro Se Press.”

All three characters will be presented in their original context, time periods, and characterizations.  This means that the adventures of each will take place either during the period in which they were originally published or immediately after their publishing dates, as if the stories simply continued.  

“It’s one of the best things,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “about being a part of Pro Se.  We have worked hard to build a reputation as a good keeper of legacies already established by characters of the past.  All three of these heroes have so many more stories that are possible and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tickled to death that we are going to get to tell them.  The Face is one of my personal favorites from the Golden Age of Comics and being able to add my name to his history in some way is a personal win.  The original Skyman has so many fans that we hope will follow him into prose, and then to have a character as cool as Nature Boy with so much left to explore, it’s all just exciting.  Both as a fan and as a Publisher, I am more than honored to be given the chance by Ron to carry these characters into a new medium and into the future.”

Natureboy.jpg

The Face will be introduced in an anthology that is a part of Pro Se’s PULP OBSCURA imprint.  Although he will appear in solo stories at least in the first collection, The Face will be inserted into a world where public domain characters and licensed characters from various mediums co exist, so guest stars from Pulp magazines, old time radio, and more may cross paths with Tony Trent and his horrific, heroic alter ego.

Nature Boy and the original Skyman will appear within the next year in their own individual books and one or both may also be included as a part of PULP OBSCURA.

Frantz says, “I am pleased to entrust the creative fate of The Original Skyman, The Face, and Nature Boy to Tommy Hancock. I've seen his publications and I'm glad to be associated with Pro Se Press." 

Submission Calls will be posted for all three characters in the coming days.

Or maybe Jonas Frederickson from back East, the leader of the Knights of Canaan. All have secrets; all are on the run. All want Quarrel out of their way. And pretty soon, more than one will discover that revenge is best served cold, from a pistol. Author Mike Chinn puts his own mark on REVENGE IS A COLD PISTOL, a pulpy western thriller.

Author JH Fleming returns to print with her exciting, unique take on the fantasy genre. THE QUEEN OF MOON OF SHADOW is now available in paperback and digital formats from Pro Se Productions.

Birdie sneaks out one night and finds a cemetery in the forest, and discovers a fairy and living teddy bear having a picnic. Suddenly attacked by evil Unseelie Fairies, Birdie destroys them in a fit of rage with magic that had lain dormant in her world, a power triggered by all the anger and resentment that has built up since her father and sister died.

Both girls are taken to the Moon Queen, Isadora, who is intrigued by Birdie's powers. This leads to a number of quests, conspiracies, and battles. As Birdie grows in her abilities and rises through the ranks of this new world, Goose finds herself a Worm in the library, discovering powers all her own.

SUBMISSIONS CALL OPEN FOR FOUR MONTHLYPRO SE SINGLE SHOT SIGNATURE SERIES!

Pro Se

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ProSeSignature_Header.jpeg

In 2014, Pro Se Productions announced and launched The Pro Se Single Shot Signature Series, an innovative line of digital only fiction series, most of them episodic in nature and centering around a series regular or cast.  Though the first incarnation of the line came to an end in 2016, Pro Se Productions announces the return of The Pro Se Single Shot Signature series by opening a submissions call for four new monthly series for release in 2018-2019.

Proposals for submissions are now being accepted for four new series as a part of the Pro Se Single Shot Signature line.  Any genre is acceptable and word length must be 3 to 10 thousand words per month for a twelve month series.  The series may either be episodic, ‘chapters’ in one continual story OR 12 individual stories featuring the same character or cast, like stand alone episodes.  A mix of both can also be used, some stand alone episodes, some multi ‘chapter’ arcs.

Proposals for a series MUST outline 12 episodes/chapters/stories. This is non negotiable. Stories each month must be a MINIMUM of 3 thousand words and a MAXIMUM of 10,000 words and authors can determine themselves how long each story will be within these parameters.  Once a proposal is accepted, a series will not debut until the first three installments are submitted to Pro Se Productions.  Depending on sales, each series may be collected at the end of its digital run as a single novel/collection.

As previously stated, any genre is acceptable for submission.  Preference will be given to stories that move quickly and keep a reader engaged. Authors with skill in writing serialized tales and/or recurring episodic work are encouraged to submit. Please do not propose serializing works that were originally completed as a novel.  Newly written works aimed at being a 12 chapter/episode series are preferred.

This is a royalty only project, with the author of each accepted series receiving 50% royalties for the entire run of the series and, if collected, the resulting book/collection. If a writer submitting a proposal has not previously submitted to Pro Se before, proposals must include a four page writing sample.

All proposals must be sent to submissions@prose-press.com

Examples of series from the Pro Se Signature Series’ first incarnation can be found at https://www.amazon.com/Magee-3-Book-Series/dp/B06XT4B2ZY/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1530589253&sr=8-4&keywords=magee+david+white, https://www.amazon.com/Origin-Flight-Fly-Girl-Season-ebook/dp/B00N37B8C6/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8, and https://www.amazon.com/Fabulous-World-Zenith-Book/dp/B072634HQV/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1530589332&sr=1-1&keywords=fabulous+world+of+zenith.
