And that’s it! The deadline for submissions into the Guinness World Record is officially passed. We have already reached our 100 story goal as indicated yesterday, and all the extra stories are being kept in reserve in case we can still fit them into the one Volume, as required by Guinness World Records.
Now…our hard really begins. We have been editing and confirming that each story is fit for the anthology and meets requirements up to now. With establishing CEP as a registered company and creating new divisions, Celenic Game Studios establishing a new game development partnership with Salty Goal Productions, establishing AIR Entertainment as our own gaming news outlet, and yesterday being invited to join a community of game developers so that Celenic Game Studios can offer involvement, assistance and advice…. It has been a busy month.
And it is about to get busier. We would have liked to compile the Volume as we received the stories, but this became a momentous task and distracted us from the submissions being received. Now that submissions are finally over, we have two weeks to compile all the stories into their respective genres. As sponsors contribute to pre-orders and donations, we will be updating the novel with the list of sponsors in the Acknowledgments section of the volume. Remember, you have until 20 September 2017 to pre-order if you want to be listed as an official sponsor in the volume and in the video credits of the actual launch event. You will still be able to preorder after that, but we have to have the final complete volume submitted by then so that it can be ready for the launch on 30 September 2017.
So please pre-order while you can! Our site is the only way to pre-order in a fashion whereby you can be listed as a sponsor. Amazon or other online platform pre-orders do not share buyer information with us, so we cannot take any information from those pre-orders to place in the anthology. Emailing us to say you have preordered from Amazon will also not work… You can only pre-order from us directly to be acknowledged as a sponsor for the record.
For your convenience, we are once again placing the pre-order links here. Thank you so much for the support we have already received and all the interviews that are currently streaming in. We really appreciate it!
Note: The paperback prices include shipping and are kept as close to cost price as possible to aid us in gaining the required 1000 sales. All emails are captured by Payfast and sent to us, and we will email all sponsors for delivery addresses when the anthology is launched. Ebooks will be emailed on the date of launch.
