We’ve got some new Entertainment Partners, and We’d like to Show Them Off

This last week we’ve been establishing some proper partnerships with some organisations we’ve been having some dealings with. This network has been steadily growing in the last month, but some things have been cast in solid stone.

Far be it from us to keep silent on the matter, especially when we find this new venture rather exciting. So here’s a bit of an introduction to all of them.


THE PULSE ENTERTAINMENT

The Pulse Entertainment {TPE} presents news, reviews and interviews of anything in the entertainment industry, such as games, movies, books, music, anime, etc. Currently we have four of our authors from our Anthologies writing for TPE, namely Shaun M Jooste, Andi Hodgetts, Wesley Jade, Pragashnie Naidoo and Sarah Beth James, the last of which actually owns TPE.

Any literary news that Celenic Earth Publications {CEP} has to share will also be announced on and shared by TPE, and any CEP writers will have a chance to write for TPE should they pass the audition. They will also be looking for further opportunities in the industry to grow together, many of which have already been realised.


KEYSTONE GAMES

Keystone Games is a developer of AAA games which has launched recently. The profits from their games go to the disabled and less fortunate, and are even staffed by those with disabilities. You can see an interview done by Pulse Entertainment that explains more of what they do.

CEP and TPE have both partnered with Keystone, which have already yielded some results. TPE have been privy to some new game reveals, which were announced on the site, and author Shaun Jooste has done some interviews with Keystone and made some leads with their game developers. Andi Hodgetts has been signed on as an actor for one of the games, Homicide Detective, and negotiations are underway for Jooste also to become involved with the team as a writer. We hope for much more to come in the near future, but more detail cannot be released at this point.


ANTREYA STUDIOS

Antreya Studios is busing developing a MMORPG game called Antreya Chronicles, which will be vast in terms of the world presented to online players as well as the ability to customise characters and skills. Our author Shaun Jooste has also been involved with interviewing the lead members of the Antreya team for TPE, which has been gaining an incredible amount of views of Facebook and Twitter.

Both anthology authors Dean Clark and Jooste are writers for Antreya Chronicles, focusing on the lore, main plot, character descriptions and side quests for the game. CEP has agreed to be the main publisher of future game books and novel spin-offs for Antreya Chronicles, as well as a special surprise which we will announce when the time is appropriate.


SALTY GOAL PRODUCTIONS

Salty Goal Productions is also a game developer, with a game that has been Steam greenlit for further development. Hegis’ Grasp is not only a horror game soon to be released, but the gamebook has been written by Dean Clark and published by CEP.

We’re looking forward to this business relationship with SGP, hoping it will bring more opportunities for books to be written and published. We will be announcing any further news for the release of games on TPE and books on CEP. Here is a trailer for the upcoming game, which is for adults only.


DEEP BLUE GAMES

Deep Blue Games has been developing some games for a while now, and their main focus is their upcoming game, WerWolf. Shaun Jooste has taken to interviewing them for GameTyrant and has such a keen interest in the game.

As with SGP, we will be keeping up any news for their work to be announced on TPE and are hoping to publish any novel adaptations for them. Here is a trailer for the upcoming WerWolf.


DEVIL’S PEEK GAMES

Devil’s Peek Games has a special place in the CEP heart. Both of us are based in Cape Town, South Africa. When Shaun Jooste interviewed DPG for TPE, discovering that they had developed Puzzleverse that would be published by Keystone, he realised that they were based almost around the corner from CEP.

We will continue to watch DPG for further announcements to be made on TPE, while keeping our doors open for literary writing and publishing opportunities. Here is a sneak peek of their upcoming Puzzleverse.


And that’s it from us for now on our partners, although discussions are currently underway with other potential partners, one which will help get our foot in the screenwriting industry for films.

CELENIC EARTH PUBLICATIONS Teams Up with KEYSTONE GAMES Developers

For those of you who have been paying close attention, KEYSTONE GAMES has been hitting the spotlight very quickly lately. And it’s not really a surprise either. A few weeks ago they announced their launch, indicating that they would be partnering with game development companies to make games that creates profits for the disabled and less fortunate.

Since then, a whole host of massive announcements were made. One of them was that actor Warwick Davis joined their cast of voice actors for one of the upcoming 5 games they are busy developing, namely Homicide Detective. You may know him as the loveable Ewok Wicket, Filius Flitwick from the Harry Potter franchise, Willow Ufgood in the classic Ron Howard fantasy film Willow and the voice of Rukh in the upcoming season 4 of Star Wars: Rebels.

One of our authors and owner of Celenic Earth Publications, Shaun M Jooste, has been keeping close tabs on the company, including an interview with COO Jane Whittaker and some exclusive reveals for Homicide Detective on The Pulse Entertainment. Shaun also did an announcement editorial on Keystone Games on GameTyrant.  He will be following this up with an interview with the Head of Art for Keystone, Katie Bailey.

The relationship and networking has progressed to such a stage that we are proud to announce that Celenic Earth Publications and Keystone Games have become partners. What this means is that CEP and Keystone will be working close together from now on to present the latest news of upcoming books and games. There is also a strong possibility of CEP becoming a publisher of any books based on the games, as well as lending writing talent from CEP authors to game writing and development.

And the first opportunity has already presented itself! One of our CEA Through the Dark Volume 1 Horror Anthology writers, Andi Hodgetts, has officially been signed up as an actor for Homicide Detective, as well as possible future games! We cannot tell you just how proud this makes us to have one of our own acting in future AAA titles that will be published by Keystone Games.

Of course, there is no rest for the productive. CEP and Keystone have been in a flurry of discussions this week over further opportunities. There has been some severe brainstorming, with lists of potential opportunities presenting themselves, but we cannot announce any of it just yet. Once all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed, and Keystone makes the announcements publicly themselves, we will definitely be presenting the news too you!

This is just the first step in propelling Celenic Earth Publications into the future, and cross-networking across different platforms and not only books! Watch this space very carefully.

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.

Author Shaun M Jooste announces new biblical based fiction series

One of our featured authors, Shaun M Jooste, who brought us his epic fantasy series, the Celenic Earth Chronicles, and his debut horror novel, Silent Hill: Betrayal, has announced that he will be working on a fictional series based on the Bible. 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.
