SCI-FANT GLOBAL ANTHOLOGY COMPETITION: Win Free Copies of our Upcoming Anthologies

Celenic Earth Publications is proud to present its first Anthology competition, which we are hoping to bring with each release of our paired Anthology launches in the future. To start off, we are going to be bringing you two new anthologies that feature the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres, and are therefore calling this our SCI-FANT GLOBAL ANTHOLOGY COMPETITION.

Within the next week or two, depending how long the process takes, we will be launching two new anthologies. CEA Into the Beyond Volume 1 will feature science fiction short stories while CEA Past your Reality Volume 1 will feature the fantasy stories. Both were written by its own set of authors, some alike, some different, but everyone just as eager to get their words imprinted into your literate minds.

And you have a chance to win a digital copy of both! Lucky winners will each receive both ebooks for free, especially signed by Celenic Earth Publications with special dedication of the award within the book. The winners will be announced on Celenic Earth Publications’ website, as well as through our sponsors which will include mentions on their sites, social media and a special radio broadcast.

And here’s the special twist to our competition: We are making this competition global! Two winners from each country all over the world that we confirm entry for will each obtain their free digital copies!!

Both the first Celenic Earth Anthologies are finally available for local printing and distribution here in South Africa. That means that those who live here by us in this glorious country no longer have to pay for huge shipping fees or wait so long for delivery!

We’ve been working with Groep 7 Drukkers since we first established Celenic Earth Publications in 2016, and even before then actually, and it has been a great business relationship. We look forward to a long future together and hope to be able to extend our reach through the rest of Africa one day.

JAY GIRGIS Debut Novelette ‘The Berberian’ now available!

Celenic Earth Publications is happy to announce that one of our newest authors, Jay Girgis, has just released his debut Novelette, ‘The Berberian’. It is an action adventure story with tones of historical religious context as the Arabs invade christian lands:

Welcome to 698 A.D. It is time of unrest, with the Arabs taking Christian lands and the Berber Christians being taken into slavery in Carthage, North West Africa. Itri is a young boy when he is enslaved with his parents and enforced into the Arab religion and culture. After being physically emasculated, he meets his master’s daughter and agrees to run away with her. They are hunted down until they meet Christians like themselves who are standing up against the Arab invasions.

Years pass as the conflict rises and Itri learns to fight, but the tense love between him and Laila grows stronger. They forge strong relationships with fellow fighters, as Itri learns that his brother is in the Arab army. It is not just a contest of blood ties, but also religious beliefs and difference in cultures. With Itri refusing to take any life, can he hold to his principles as he faces his own family while holding back the oncoming Arabic hordes?

The book is only available in ebook format due to its length. We are also proud to announce that one of Jay’s short stories will be a Celenic Earth Anthology exclusive to be featured in one of our anthologies soon.

‘The Berberian’ is available at the following official outlets, with links on icons where we have been able to obtain it.

Celenic Earth Publications Expands its Publishing Wings on Social Media

As promised, Celenic Earth Publications has established itself on various social media platforms, starting with those that directly share blog posts, such as this one, on them. This will help us to effectively and efficiently get the word out as quickly as possible on new projects and releases without having to repeat ourselves a hundred times over.

You may notice that we treat Facebook very differently when it comes to the Anthologies. Where we have separate pages for each anthology series and our new publishing page, all the other accounts only have one account to deal with all announcements. The only other exception is Twitter, where we have one account for anthologies and one account for publishing.

This may seem odd to the casual outsider, but it helps us streamline news that is simply for the anthologies and any other author publishing news we may want to share. It’s a case of keeping everything structured so that those who simply want to follow the horror anthology on facebook may do so, while granting those who want all the CEP news the chance to do so without missing out. It’s all about reaching the right target audience without annoying those who seek a specific demand.

Here are the social media links for Celenic Earth Publications, which will be put on the actual home site at the bottom shortly. If there are any other social media sites you would like to receive news on, please let me know and I will do my best to make it happen.

According to his latest blog post, it is something that he has been wanting to write for a while, but comments it will be a fictional adaptation of the Bible, but not religious in nature.

We look forward to these books being added to our catalogue in the future. Watch this space for further updates.
