In 2011, Pro Se Productions, now a leading publisher of New Pulp and Genre Fiction, debuted a new character initially as a live spokesmodel to promote both the company and New Pulp in general-The Pulptress. Proving popular in the New Pulp Community, the Pulptress appeared in her own volume of adventures by various writers in 2012. One story and one character besides The Pulptress within that volume in particular captured the minds, tongues, and hearts of fans so completely that she now comes to life in her own digest novel.
Pro Se Productions proudly announces the upcoming release of THE BONE QUEEN, a digest novel by Andrea Judy. Judy, a contributor to the original THE ADVENTURES OF THE PULPTRESS collection, titled that short story ‘The Bone Queen’, but the new book is something more. It is that most hallowed of stories-The Bone Queen’s origin.
The Bone Queen-Strangely exotic, absolutely disturbing. A woman who, although hauntingly beautiful in some respects, is also horrifying, much of her upper torso missing and bone exposed. A Practitioner of Death itself, able to bring the Undead to Unholy Life by consuming their bones, The Bone Queen stands as a formidable archenemy to The Pulptress. But who was she before Fate ripped away her flesh and committed to her a most terrible, awesome destiny? Andrea Judy takes readers back to the beginning for this enigmatic character in THE BONE QUEEN.
I’ve always loved the villains in a story,” says Judy, “so I was thrilled to have the chance to tell a story from a darker point of view, showing the reader where a villain came from. It was a struggle at times to write, to remember that this wasn't a story about light overcoming the dark, but about embracing that darkness. I’ve had an amazing time working with Pro Se getting this book together, and I’m thrilled to share it with the world!”
THE BONE QUEEN is the first of two digest novels set in the Pulptress’ world that Judy will write. The second, due out in 2014, will focus on the second meeting of Judy’s villainess and the Pulptress, a follow up to the initial short story.
THE BONE QUEEN, featuring an absolutely gorgeous cover by Ariane Soares, an artist with Fitztown, is currently scheduled for release in November 2013.
Andrea Judy is a writer, student, and professional pixie. She makes her home in Atlanta, Georgia She enjoys causing mischief by talking non-stop about Internet memes and all of the stories she’s working on.
