PRO SE OPENS SECOND VOLUME OF ‘HIGH ADVENTURE HISTORY’ TO WRITERS-‘HISTORY’S HEROES’
“The response,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “to the first High Adventure History volume has been good and interesting as well. We’ve had a lot of compliments on the book as it is, but also probably just as many requests for a follow up volume that features fictional high adventure tales starring actual historical figures. And that, quite simply, is what High Adventure History-History’s Heroes is meant to be.”
High Adventure History-History’s Heroes can be set in any time period up until 1900 and must feature as the lead character an actual historical figure. No magic, paranormal, or extraordinary devices may be worked into the story and the stories must have a ‘high adventure’ quality, that meaning that these are not mysteries or political intrigues, but tales that place the hero in perilous situations on a quest of some sort or battling odds that he or she has little chance of surviving.
Stories for High Adventure History-History’s Heroes must be 10,000 words in length. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
High Adventure History-History’s Heroes is scheduled for publication in late 2015 by Pro Se Productions.
