When Nigel Gillette, renowned action/adventure author and wizard-at-large, wins a small dragon familiar in a magical game of chance, he is initially excited. Copper Dragon however, is not so thrilled. She has a shameful and abusive past, where she was trained harshly and used for illegal activities. Copper has serious trust issues, and so she refuses to believe that any human can be as friendly and generous as Nigel seems. She decides to strike out on her own, but quickly finds that the world is a cold and cruel place when you are only a small dragon who has always lived as a tame creature.
So Copper has to make a choice. Should she return to the life of crime that she knows so well, or can she learn to trust this new human companion, who seems to have her best interests at heart? From the premiere chocolate producing world of Bulgosia to the famed magical resort island of Atlantis, Copper Dragon goes on a journey of self-discovery, meeting other fantastic creatures and getting into all sorts of difficult and sometimes dangerous situations. Along the way, she will learn not only to trust her own instincts, but to use those skills she has honed to her best advantage, in hopes of earning the life she deserves.

In a time of upheaval, where magick and religion often collide, those who keep the old ways are increasingly shunned and ridiculed. The Vagabond Bards, a dedicated group of musicians, singers, actors, poets, and teachers of the unwritten oral folklore of the Terran Worlds, are finding themselves coming under pressure to disband or face probable imprisonment—even death. For generations these roving men and women have spread throughout the population, dedicating their lives to educating and assisting their fellow Humans while recording and preserving their knowledge and experiences, making sure the tales of the past are kept alive throughout the mostly illiterate masses. Sworn to Understand, Love, and Keep the Truth, they now face strong opposition from the upstart religion of Helios the Sun God, whose belief is sweeping the countryside, rewriting history and changing views of the past in the most alarming manner. These are the tales of those heroic troubadours, who fight for justice not with weapons, but with words. The latest from Fantasy Author Nancy Hansen and the first volume in the Hansen's Way Imprint from Pro Se Productions!

Nancy decides she needs a familiar- a small, intelligent creature who can be trusted to watch over things while she's gone or come to her rescue when situations get just a little too weird.

From Pro Se Productions- The next chapter in its debut line from its YOUNGPULP! imprint- Companion Dragons Tales Volume Two: Finding Waxy! Roger 'Rusty' Rustman is a very secretive fellow—and with good reason. He's not only an untrained wizard who uses forms of magic that are frowned upon, and trades in enchanted items that aren't exactly approved of; but he travels to dangerous places that other magical people avoid, and then writes about them anonymously. From his questionable recreational hobbies he has built a tidy second income along with a stockpile of magical resources. Over the years Rusty has gained a reputation as a shady character who operates on the fringes of the Wizards and Witches Council code of ethics while flaunting Wordsmith Guild regulations; but he's really just a quiet and modest writer mage who enjoys a bit of adventure now and then. The last thing Rusty needs is a small but very noticeable companion tagging along. Unfortunately, while on his latest trip out to the magical otherworlds, he finds a very large abandoned egg that decides to hatch unexpectedly in his vacation cabin. That begins an entirely bizarre and mystifying set of events that only the cooperation of a spunky and intelligent little rainbow colored dragon can get him out of safely. Pro Se Productions proudly presents Companion Dragons Tales Volume Two: Finding Waxy by Roger Stegman and Nancy A. Hansen, a series in Pro Se’s YoungPulp! imprint. This imaginative adventure expands the world of dragon familiars and their humans introduced in the first volume and brings a new voice into the storytelling.

War is coming to Greenwood. A joint coalition of the Dark Ones, led by a wily and powerful ancient adversary, have gathered on the borders of the enchanted forest. Their object: to reopen an all-important portal to the shadow world of Terra Incognita, where they will release their fell brethren waiting on the other side into the world of the living once again. All that stands between this confederacy of evil entities and creatures bent on destruction and mayhem, is a single guardian Naiad, and straggling bands of half-starved Elves. Across the river, in the more peaceful lands of Humans, Callie's pregnancy is now full term. As the armies of friend and foe march into battle in the forest, her child's birth is imminent. Will this babe live long enough to become the savior who unites the scattered allies of the Light World once more, and beat back the Dark God's horde? Or will the ploys of the enemy's Master Summoner snuff out that little life before it has a chance to tip the scales of balance in the Light World's favor? These are the times foretold: the age of the Master's Endgame! The third chapter in Fantasy Pulp Author Nancy Hansen’s Trilogy brings the tale told in Fortune’s Pawn and Prophecy’s Gambit to an adventurous, explosive ending.

It is a time of great upheaval in the middle lands of Terra North. Human refugees from realms that have been overtaken by force make their way along the old forest roads; moving resolutely onward to whatever future lies ahead. Elves watch warily from the cover of trees and brush as this influx of additional settlers pass through their gradually shrinking demesne. Some trail the rumbling wagons as they make their way along toward a welcoming kingdom known as Sudarnia. One small party in particular has caught the Forest Born's attention, for amongst the three youngest members of these Human emigrants, is a boy with some particularly disturbing abilities... When death comes hurtling down from the heavens, the children of that settler group are orphaned. Rescued by Elves, they are held in custody until a trusted ally comes to collect them. Each finds an uneasy niche of sorts within Sudarnian society; but what will ultimately become of these three foundlings, and what part will their contributions play, in a land now facing a far more potent menace than it has seen in decades? All the answers lay within the hearts, minds, and spirits of a trio of children whose intertwined destinies were Forged by Flame! By Nancy Hansen and from Pro Se Productions
The Technological Singularity Event left the world’s governments trembling. War ravaged the land as humans faced off with the Nanite Army of Fire. Eventually the world was plunged into darkness. When the world regained its senses technology had been reduced to the level of the 1800’s. The world governments no longer existed, until one Dr. Fulbright began rebuilding English society in New Southampton. Fate seemed to intervene when Dr. Fulbright’s lab exploded and carved a giant crater in the center of the city. With Dr. Fulbright dead, the struggling city was left without guidance or authority. Authority was regained when brutal Queen Anne anointed herself the new city monarch. Anne quickly established a brutal regime bathed in blood and violence. In light of death and oppression, the people of New Southampton seek saviors. In the darkness, some have heard the call for Revolution. Beings that have crawled out of the time of the Singularity to give the people hope. Many call these harbingers of salvation the Posthumans. The Posthumans have risen from the ashes. Singularity: Rise of the Posthumans. From Pro Se Productions.
WHEN THE SHADOW SEES THE SUN is the realization of a concept of a brilliant creative mind that recognized certain things in himself, dark things. Things he thought he might not overcome. He conceived this idea, partly in jest, but more in earnest desire. A book focused on creative souls who experience depression and struggle with horrors that they exorcise by putting them to paper, but just can’t always let go of that way. He wanted there to be a book out there for creatives (and others who might benefit) by creatives to address the struggles so many endure and to offer ways to cope, to deal, and to move on. To overcome. Logan L. Masterson lost his battle with what plagued him on March 29, 2016. And this book, his idea, is now a reality, to help bring to light the issues creative souls do endure, many similar to anyone else, some unique to our own little family. All proceeds from this book will go to a variety of charities, local as well as state and national, to promote suicide intervention and prevention as well as to assist with working through and surviving depression, with a focus being on those who are artists, writers, performers, etc. affected by this. In these pages, authors John G. Hartness, Tim Byrd, Ernest Russell, Phillip Drayer Duncan, Mark Bousquet, Thomas R. Skidmore, Nikki Nelson-Hicks, Andrea Judy, Scott Hancock, Joe Hilliard, Herika R. Raymer, Melinda LaFevers, Alexander S.

Of the ancient immortal mer-folk clan, Lori is the deadliest amongst them. An incredibly lovely, tall and curvaceous gray-eyed blonde with a mesmerizing voice, she once used her talents to lure unwary mariners to their doom. Held hostage by the Elder Gods through her reluctance to endanger the remainder of her kind, she now serves a higher purpose. The great pearl ring of her heritage is shackled by a fine chain leading to a rune-embossed silver bracelet that must never be removed. When unlinked, it can call forth her 'heroes'—four eternal warriors of old. All five have disgraced themselves in their previous incarnations and now do penance by ridding humanity of menaces both mortal and undead.
Four stories of violent redemption and reprisal involving mystery, suspense, and dangers both in the world of humankind and of the supernatural sphere comprise THE SONG OF HEROES. Meet Lori's four compelling colleagues: Sir Reginald the Paladin, Serge the French executioner, Modak the Cannibal King, and mysterious Herne the Hunter. With sword, axe, spear, and bow they guard their mistress and do her bidding—often reminding Lori of her own debt to those they now protect. Come trembling mortal, and travel into the gruesome world of the deathless avengers and listen again for THE SONG OF HEROES to rise on the salt sea breezes. By Nancy A. Hansen and from Hansen’s Way and Pro Se Productions.
