INTRIGUE, BETRAYAL, AND MURDER IN NEW PRO SE SINGLE SHOT SIGNATURE SERIES-THE DISINTEGRATION OF DRAGONS DEBUTS!
Pro Se Productions, an independent publisher of Genre Fictio and New Pulp debuts its latest series in its Pro Se Single Shot Signature line. Author Mark Bousquet introduces readers to a fantasy noir epic like no other A Death in Vastervik, the first story in his Signature series The Disintegration of Dragons.
The Golem War is over. One year to the date of final victory over the automaton armies of an evil wizard sect, the kingdom states of the Third Continent gather in the human kingdom of Vastervik to party. The guests of honor are all of the known surviving members of the 19th Legion (popularly known as the Dragon Legion), the military unit that ended the Golem War via mysterious, unknown actions. In the morning, Vastervik awakens to find two Legionnaires murdered and another the main suspect. Panic slowly grows among the Queen’s men. The 14 surviving members of the 19th are the most popular men in the continent, and neither the dwarves nor elves would dare move against them. The Queen needs someone who can stand up to the 19th to solve the murder, so she turns to the 15th surviving member of the Legion who none may mention without facing the penalty of death, a man locked away in the deepest, darkest cell. With the Legion in crisis, the Queen turns to the one man that she can trust to stand up to the 19th to find out who’s killing the greatest heroes of the Continent.
“Fantasy,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “is one of those genres that many people think may be played out. From high fantasy to good ol’ two fisted Pulp fantasy, it seems like it’s all been done. Then along comes a story like The Disintegration of Dragons. In the first Book alone, Mark takes several fantasy tropes and, with some, uses them quite well as we all expect them while he turns others on their ear. Taking Fantasy down a Noir path isn’t as easy to pull off as it might seem, but Mark is off to a great start with A Death in Vastervik."
A Death in Vastervik: The Disintegration of Dragons Book One features a haunting cover by Rick Johnson, logo design by Jeffrey Hayes and cover design and ebook design and formatting by Russ Anderson. The Pro Se Single Shot Signature release is now available for 99 cents via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and www.smashwords.com.
