PRO SE PRODUCTIONS OPENS SUBMISSIONS CALL FOR WORLD OF BIG DADDY COOL ANTHOLOGY

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MORE ACTION AND MADNESS FROM THE FLIP-SIDE!
PRO SE PRODUCTIONS OPENS SUBMISSIONS CALL FOR
WORLD OF BIG DADDY COOL ANTHOLOGY


IN 2015, Pro Se Productions released TALES FROM THE FLIP-SIDE-THE ADVENTURES OF BIG DADDY COOL AND THE BOMBSHELL KITTENS. This first volume in THE WORLD OF BIG DADDY COOL imprint from Pro Se was written by John Pyka, the stage and performer who embodies the lead character, Johnny Dellarocca, former gangster, current magician and time traveling savior of worlds known as Big Daddy Cool.

Pro Se proudly announces an open submissions call for the second book in the imprint-ADVANCE THE SPARK: TALES FROM THE WORLD OF BIG DADDY COOL. This short story collection can and will feature not only tales starring Big Daddy and his Bombshell Kittens, but also a variety of other characters created by Pyka that people the universe that Big Daddy spends much of his time saving.

“It’s time,” says Tommy Hancock, Pro Se Productions Editor in Chief, “to not only revisit the world of Big Daddy Cool, but to bring other voices to the choir as well. John has created such a rich fabric, a really varied universe that just begs for others to put their spin on it and his cast of characters. And ADVANCE THE SPARK, hepcat speak for being prepared, will open up even more windows into the World of Big Daddy Cool.”

Stories for ADVANCE THE SPARK must follow the bible for The World of Big Daddy Cool imprint, which will be provided at the request of interested writers, and must consider TALES FROM THE FLIP-SIDE, which will also be provided, as canon for the imprint. Both the book and the bible can be requested by emailing submissions@prose-press.com. All proposals will be first approved by Pyka, then by Pro Se Productions before being accepted.

Stories for ADVANCE THE SPARK must be minimum 5,000 and maximum 10,000 words in length. A proposal of two to three paragraphs must be submitted to submissions@prose-press.com. Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals. Final deadline for completed stories is 90 days following acceptance of proposals. This call will close on April 30, 2017 or when all story slots are taken. This is a royalty based project, royalty to be determined when all stories are accepted, ranging from 5% to 10%, depending on number of accepted stories.

ADVANCE THE SPARK: TALES FROM THE WORLD OF BIG DADDY COOL is a part of the Pro Se Anthology Project, THE PRO SE OPEN, and is scheduled to be published in August 2017.
