Caught up in the tumultuous events of early Tokugawa Era Japan, Kai must survive the schemes of the shogun’s court long enough to claim his revenge and finally rid himself of the stigma of the title Kaishakunin. A novel of historical action and intrigue by Shane McInnis. From Pro Se Productions.

Featuring a stunning cover and logo design by Brittney McInnis and print formatting by Antonino Lo Iacono and Marzia Marina, KAISHAKUNIN is available in print at Amazon for $9.99.

BABYLON- A Hero For All Time

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STRANGE ADVENTURES OF BARRY REESE’S NEWEST HERO DEBUTS-‘THE SECOND BOOK OF BABYLON’ DEBUTS FROM REESE UNLIMITED AND PRO SE PRODUCTIONS

Babylon

Known for his innovative creations and exciting characters, Barry Reese is not only an award winning author, but also the first author to receive his own imprint from Pro Se Productions seven years ago. REESE UNLIMITED has become the stage for the adventures of Reese’s Peregrine, Lazarus Gray, Gravedigger and others to unfold upon, and now Barry adds one more blazing star to his unique universe. THE SECOND BOOK OF BABYLON introduces, and yes it introduces, a super hero as only Barry Reese could create.

Birthed from the horrors of American slavery, the spirit of cosmic retribution is called Babylon. Inhabiting a variety of hosts, the spirit has waged a war for the protection of innocents…but now he finds himself trapped under a mystical shield that has weakened his powers and left him without a host. With the world teetering on the brink of destruction, Babylon must find his way through a mystic battlefield that’s lined with betrayal, shock and violence. Award winning author Barry Reese (Creator of The Peregrine, Lazarus Gray, and Gravedigger) introduces his own brand of super hero into his REESE UNLIMITED Universe in THE SECOND BOOK OF BABYLON.

Featuring a fantastic cover and logo design by George Sellas, interior illustrations by George Sellas and Steven Wilcox, and print formatting by Sean Ali, THE SECOND BOOK OF BABYLON is available in print at Amazon  and on Pro Se’s own store for $9.99.

58372901_1074967709371885_3138467456570359808_n

Author Jilly Paddock has created one of the most unique pairs of spies ever to grace science fiction in her ZENITH ALPHA 4013 series. Now this unusual pair returns in their most dangerous and demanding mission yet in the fourth volume in the series-THE BEAUTY OF OUR WEAPONS.
Anna-Marie Delany and her computer partner, Zenni, are spies with psionic powers, agents for Earth Intelligence. When their boss at EI, Chandre Marteen, goes missing on the idyllic vacation world of Tambouret, their mission is to find her.

A child has also vanished, Angel Jansen, daughter of Anna’s dead enemy. Add to the mix an anti-technology cult whose leader may be possessed by a demon, a dark-sister from a sect of assassin nuns, an attempt to destroy EI and the Zenith project in a hostile takeover of Delany Corp and the help or perhaps hindrance of a pompous native detective-can Anna and Zenni rescue the hostages and survive unscathed?

Thrill to the fourth book in Jilly Paddock’s ZENITH ALPHA 4013 series, THE BEAUTY OF OUR WEAPONS. From Pro Se Productions.

Featuring a fantastic cover by Antonino Lo Iacono and print formatting and logo design by Lo Iacono and Marzia Marina, THE BEAUTY OF OUR WEAPONS is available in print at Amazon and on Pro Se’s own store at for $14.99.

The fourth book in Paddock’s terrific science fiction espionage series is also available as an eBook formatted by Lo Iacono and Marina for the Kindle for only $3.99. The book is also available to Kindle Unlimited members for free.

Leaving a convention is often difficult, and CyPhaCon 2019 this weekend was no exception. As a presenter, a responsive audience is what makes it fun. When can share your passions with a room full of people and they respond in kind is quite a rush. Fans are the soul of a convention and the CyPhaCon fans were great this weekend.
It was great seeing friends and making new ones. Frank Schiavo, Dave David Ducorbier and his sidekick Brian Held Jr , Don Cooper, Derec Donovan, Chris Hayes and many more. Happily met were Sherry Melancon, Michael Hinton, Michael Moreau, Randolph Allen, and Paul Honsinger. If I missed anybody please accept my apologies.
A convention is a great deal of work and can eat up a lot of your life. The team running CyPhaCon did it well. I appreciate their bringing me in as a guest and all the communication from the staff with whom I had contact. Hats off to Garrett Manuel – Guest Relations Director, John Juhala – Table- top Gaming Coordinator, Sven Brooks – Vendor Coordinator, and Michael Hinton – Programming Coordinator. You ran a fun convention and in working with you would happily be a CyPhaCon guest anytime.
A special note of thanks to a young lady whose last name I do not know, Emily, your services of running food and drink for the vendors was deeply appreciated.
