A MINOR GLIMPSE INVITES AUTHORS TO TRAVEL “IN ANOTHER’S SHOES” WITH NEW ANTHOLOGY CALL FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS
An innovator in Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions and its newest creator imprint- A Minor Glimpse, centered around the concepts of creator Morgan McKay- announce an open call for a new anthology. Authors are invited to walk the road not taken, travel paths beyond the norm, and see where their feet take them In Another’s Shoes.
A pair of shoes can tell a thousand stories--Where they've been, what they've seen. This anthology is centered around one of the most useful tools mankind has created. What if You were given the chance to change your life, just by changing the shoes you wore? Trading in your wingtips for cowboy boots. Hanging up the flip flops and sliding into stilettos. And what if that simple act, that change, altered your life completely? Took you from the streets of New York to the medieval moors of England. Whisked you away from Topeka, Kansas to a land beyond the clouds. What story would those shoes tell? What ground have would they tread upon? Where would they take you?
“Everybody wants a second chance, an option to take the road less travelled,” says Morgan McKay, Pro Se Director of Corporate Operations, and the creator A Minor Glimpse is built around. “Tales from all over the world have centered around this idea. Glass or fur slippers make a princess—Winged boots make a mythological god fly. So why couldn’t a pair of seemingly harmless shoes inspire something incredible?”
The stories in this anthology must involve the act of the central character putting on a different pair of shoes and that pair of shoes altering the character’s life significantly. The shoes can be magic, alien technology, or simple shoes that somehow irrevocably alter the path the wearer was on. These must be genre tales and be fast paced and both plot and character driven.
In Another’s Shoes must be 10,000 words in length. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to email@example.com. 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.
In Another’s Shoes is scheduled for publication in 2015 by Pro Se Productions.
