PRO SE INVITES AUTHORS TO RIDE THE TRAIN WITH MURDER IN LATEST ANTHOLOGY-‘AND THE WHISTLE SCREAMED: MURDER ON THE RAILS’
Pro Se Productions, a leading Publisher of Genre and Pulp Fiction, opens a submissions call for a collection spotlighting mystery and mayhem in a genre often forgotten by modern readers-railroad fiction. AND THE WHISTLE SCREAMED: MURDER ON THE RAILS is now open for submission.
“From ‘Murder on the Orient Express,’” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se, “to ‘Narrow Margin’ and beyond, audiences have always had an interest in mysteries on trains. And Railroad fiction, never as strong as most of the other genres, still was a viable arena for stories and has a following today. What we’re looking for in AND THE WHISTLE SCREAMED is a story that equally shows itself as a murder mystery, but also clearly displays itself as a train story. This will be a book of true Railroad Tales as much as it will by a collection of mindboggling murder mysteries."
Stories for AND THE WHISTLE SCREAMED: MURDER ON THE RAILS must be set on a train and must involve a murder. The time period can be any year in which trains have existed up until the modern era. Although this is largely a mystery collection, other types of stories, such as noir, may also be considered as long as the stories remain solidly set in a ‘real’ world; no science fiction, fantasy, or fantastical characteristics will be allowed.
Stories for AND THE WHISTLE SCREAMED: MURDER ON THE RAILS must be 10,000 words in length. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals. Authors whose proposals are accepted must submit the first four pages of their accepted stories as quickly as possible for review by Pro Se staff. Final deadline for completed stories is 90 days following acceptance of proposals.
AND THE WHISTLE SCREAMED: MURDER ON THE RAILS is scheduled for publication in mid to late 2015 by Pro Se Productions.
