The Peregrine flies again

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW PULP’S ICONIC HERO READY TO TAKE FLIGHT ONCE AGAIN-OPEN SUBMISSION CALLS FOR ‘THE PEREGRINE’ VOLUMES 7-9

Without question, a character that has defined what New Pulp is for many since his debut in 2008 is Max Davies. Formerly known as The Rook, more recently renamed The Peregrine, Max and an entire limitless universe of heroes and adventure erupted from the mind and imagination of award winning author Barry Reese. Through six volumes of thrilling tales literally taking The Peregrine where other heroes have never been, thanks to Reese, as well as short stories by other authors featuring the masked vigilante, he remains a character dear to many fans’ heart. Now the property of Pro Se Productions, this innovative publishing company is ready for The Peregrine to soar once again in full length novel adventures.

“The Peregrine,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “stands at the top of the most loved characters of the New Pulp Movement, right alongside such stalwarts as Dillon and Brother Bones. And Max isn’t alone. From stories about this one man troubled by horrific dreams and driven to don a mask and fight evil have come some of the most legendary tales and characters, all thanks to Barry Reese, the epitome of the modern day Pulp writer. With Pro Se adding Barry’s Universe to our properties, we feel its only fitting that the mask that started it all return to his own solo adventures, continuing with Volume Seven of THE PEREGRINE. And with Barry having no immediate plans to return to Max in that format, it’s only fitting that we reach out to other Pulp writers, many of which are die-hard fans of Max to help The Peregrine take wing once more.”

Pro Se Productions is currently seeking proposals from authors interested in writing THE PEREGRINE Volumes 7, 8, and 9. Each volume must be a minimum of 60,000 words and either be a novel length adventure or two thirty thousand word stories. The plan for these three new volumes is to produce Volume 7 in 2020 and potentially Volume 8 six months later and Volume 9 six months after that. The three volumes will not be published more than a year apart from the preceding volume.

Proposals should show a knowledge of the character and the universe he exists within. Interested authors may request materials from Pro Se Productions in order to build proposals.

Any authors who have not previously submitted work to Pro Se before must include a four page sample of their work. The first proposal accepted will be Volume 7, the second Volume 8, and the third Volume 9. Terms of contracts will be discussed after proposals are accepted on a per writer basis.

All proposals must be submitted to submissions@prose-press.com.

Gravedigger Returns With a Vengeance!

gravedigger_cover_02_small_mockupPress Release – 12/27/14

THE HAUNTED HEROINE RETURNS! THE ADVENTURES OF GRAVEDIGGER VOLUME TWO DEBUTS FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS

A noted publisher of Genre Fiction, Pro Se Productions announces the latest volume released from its first author focused imprint. Reese Unlimited, the home of noted award winning author Barry Reese’s own personal Pulp universe, debuts the second collection of adventures of one of Reese’s most imaginative creations- The Adventures of Gravedigger Volume Two!

“Gravedigger,” says Pro Se Productions Editor in Chief Tommy Hancock, “is sort of the third jewel in Barry Reese’s New Pulp crown. And what a gem she is. Although all of the standard adventure and wordsmithing you’ve come to expect from Barry is there, Gravedigger explores themes that Barry’s other creations don’t really get into. Gravedigger is not only about justice, but about redemption and vengeance and moreso the gray area that exists between all three. Yes, there’s fists and guns and supernatural doings, but there’s a level of emotion, a distinctly inner aspect of storytelling that Barry taps when he puts his pen to a new Charity Grace story. And that happens in spades in The Adventures of Gravedigger Volume Two.”

“You will put them into their graves and shovel upon them the dirt that symbolizes their eviction from the mortal world.” These words changed Charity Grace’s life…and death forever! Barry Reese, award winning author of The Peregrine and The Adventures of Lazarus Gray returns to the shadowy streets of Sovereign City with a new adventure featuring Charity Grace: Gravedigger!

The Adventures of Gravedigger returns and Sovereign City’s haunted heroine continues her mission of justice and vengeance, with the redemption of her soul at stake! In this volume, Gravedigger and her faithful agents confront the twin threats of Hiroshi Tamaki and the immortal beauty known as Pandora when they investigate the strange secret of the Silver Skull!”

Returning to Sovereign City,” explains Reese, “always feels like coming home for me. I relished the chance to take Gravedigger and her allies in new directions and I’m thrilled for my loyal readers to experience the romances, dangers and excitement that make up this novel.”

The Adventures of Gravedigger Volume Two features action packed cover art and logo design by award winning artist George Sellas, print formatting by Sean Ali, and eBook formatting by Russ Anderson.

The latest volume from Reese Unlimited is available in print via Amazon at http://tinyurl.com/lj39tvm and at Pro Se’s own store at http://tinyurl.com/lkw6chqfor $15.00. The Adventures of Gravedigger Volume Two is also available as an eBook for the Kindle at http://tinyurl.com/kbmgkuf and for most other formats at http://tinyurl.com/opztpuffor only $2.99.

The Damned Thing Returns

damned_new_coverPress Release

BARRY REESE’S ‘THE DAMNED THING’ RETURNS TO PRINT FROM PRO SE PRODUCTIONS!

Pro Se Productions, a publisher of Genre Fiction and New Pulp, proudly announces the latest release from its first author-centered imprint, Reese Unlimited. With new edits and a stunning new cover, Author Barry Reese’s thoroughly modern tip of the hat to classic mysteries bearing the mark of his very distinct style is in print once again. The Damned Thing debuts today in print and digital formats from Pro Se Productions.

“It’s not often,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “that it can be said something written in the last few years should be considered a New Pulp Classic. I say it, however, without hesitation about Barry Reese’s The Damned Thing. Not only does Barry let you know every word on the page, every action, every plot twist is definitely his, he does it in a way that also echoes classic private eye fiction. Shades of Chandler and Hammett dance and play with murderous glee throughout Violet Cambridge’s first adventure and the great part is Barry makes it seem effortless, this blending of his own style and classic leanings. And the two together deliver one of the most unique New Pulp titles to date.”

The toughest detective in 1939 Atlanta is a woman by the name of Violet Cambridge. And she knows her job like she knows herself. All the shadows and alleys, the light and the dark. But when the search for a missing sister and the brutal murder of her partner take her into territory unfamiliar, Violet finds herself on the road to Hell in search of The Damned Thing.

Award winning author Barry Reese’s hard boiled supernatural detective thriller returns in an all new Pro Se Productions edition. Noted for pushing the boundaries of Genre Fiction, Reese takes the classic tropes of the Private Eye tale and gives them his own imaginative, bizarre twists and turns in The Damned Thing. Fans of Reese’s work will recognize characters and themes that run through Reese’s work and new readers will find intrigue, mystery, action, and terror on every page.
From machine guns to magic spells, from mobsters to monsters, Violet Cambridge will face them all in the unholy quest for The Damned Thing. From Reese Unlimited, an imprint of Pro Se Productions.

“It’s a thrill,” says Reese, “to have this work back in print, looking better than ever. Violet’s story was an important one for me, as a writer and a person, so I can’t wait for new readers to experience her journey.”

The Damned Thing features a haunting cover by Adam Shaw and logo design and print formatting and print formatting by Sean Ali and eBook formatting by Russ Anderson. Interior illustrations are by Kevin Dale Duncan.

The latest book from the Reese Unlimited imprint is available in print via Amazon at http://tinyurl.com/ku3tqpy and at Pro Se’s own store at http://tinyurl.com/kvjhk4n for $12.00. The Damned Thing is also available as an eBook for the Kindle at http://tinyurl.com/kaalk6f and for most other formats at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/499193 for only $2.99.

Monday…?! Yes. It’s Monday.

satans_ad2Hello, my faithful readers! I hope you’re excited about the start of a new week. I’m gearing up for my appearance at this weekend’s Middle Georgia Comic Convention — I now that fellow New Pulp author Bobby Nash will be there, along with a host of comics creators like Mark Bagley, Tony Harris, Colleen Doran and Wilfredo Torres! Should be a fun time. Come out and see me if you’re near Macon, Georgia!

I continue to add to the crossover novel — I’m closing in on the 1/4 mark of the book and I’m really happy with it so far. The most recent chapter was a pretty exciting one featuring Lazarus Gray and company down in the sewers beneath Sovereign.

Speaking of Lazarus, don’t forget that The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Four: Satan’s Circus is now available in print! It’s a great wrap-up to the storyline that weaves through books 2-4 and I can’t wait to start getting some feedback on it. Be sure to drop me a line or post a review at Amazon if you do read it so I can know if it turned out as well as I think it did!

Our image today features artwork by George Sellas but it’s been tweaked into an ad for Satan’s Circus by the amazing Sean Ali! I think it’s pretty spiffy.

 

Satan’s Circus Comes to Town

v4coverPRESS RELEASE

One of the most popular characters in the New Pulp Movement returns in an all-new volume from Pro Se Productions. Reese Unlimited, Pro Se’s first author centered imprint, announced today the release of THE ADVENTURES OF LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME FOUR: SATAN’S CIRCUS.

“Lazarus Gray,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of and Partner in Pro Se Productions, “has definitely struck a chord with readers. He and Assistance Unlimited have crossed boundaries, reaching fans outside of the general Pulp or Genre Fiction niche and that is always good. Barry has a great world he’s built here, one that allows for not only growth of his own cast, but to bring in characters from the Public Domain and other arenas. Also, he has explored some pretty heady themes behind the mask of Pulp Fiction and that adds an extra punch to not only SATAN’S CIRCUS, but to all the Lazarus Gray volumes.”

SATAN’S CIRCUS once again returns Lazarus Gray to the field of battle. The only clue to his identity was a small medallion with the words ‘Lazarus Gray’ stamped on it. He took that name and became one of Sovereign City’s greatest heroes, forming an alliance with other lost souls like himself. Together, they are Assistance Unlimited… and now they face their greatest threats ever!

From Award-winning author Barry Reese comes two pulse-pounding tales of pulp adventure: in the first, Lazarus Gray unites with the mighty Thunder Jim Wade to confront a menace from his past and in the second, the mysterious pair of vigilantes known as The Darkling and Eidolon return in a dark tale that reveals hidden secrets that will shake the world of Lazarus Gray to its very core!

Also included is SECRETS OF THE DEAD, a comic-strip origin sequence by Reese and artist George Sellas, also providing cover and illustrations! Learn the Origin of the man behind Assistance Unlimited.

“Satan’s Circus,” says Reese, “is the culmination of so many plot lines and character arcs… I’ve had the hardest time keeping all of its secrets while waiting for it to go through the publishing process! I’m thrilled that fans will finally see all the payoff that I’ve been promising. I think it’s a pretty rousing adventure and both of the stories it contains are real game-changers for the series.”

THE ADVENTURES OF LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME FOUR: SATAN’S CIRCUS features cover design and formatting by Sean E. Ali and the upcoming eBooks feature design and formatting by Russ Anderson. SATAN’S CIRCUS is available now in print from Amazon and soon from other outlets. EBook editions of the latest Reese Unlimited volume are coming soon!

For digital review copies of THE ADVENTURES OF LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME FOUR: SATAN’S CIRCUS, interviews with the author, or further information about the book, contact Morgan Minor, Pro Se’s Director of Corporate Operations at directorofcorporateoperations@prose-press.com.

Spiffy!

satans_circus_adGood Morning!

The Adventures of Lazarus Gray: Satan’s Circus is on the way! I got to see the galley proof yesterday and signed off on it so hopefully you’ll be able to read it in the next week or so.

The image to the left is an ad for the book, featuring artwork by George Sellas and graphic design by Sean Ali. Spiffy, eh?

In other exciting news, I approved a sketch from George Sellas that will eventually become the cover to The Adventures of Gravedigger Volume Two. It’s lovely and a great follow-up to that incredible cover that George did for the first book.

Exciting days!
