CEA Greatest Anthology, CEA Through the Dark and Hegis’ Grasp Accepted for Shirley Jackson Awards

In the middle of last month, a correspondent from the Shirley Jackson Awards for horror and psychological thriller contacted us to enquire as to whether we would like to submit any of our 2017 publications for the 2017 Awards. We had a fine look through the guidelines and requirements and found that three of our publications fit the bill:

Just a few moments ago we were notified that these publications have been accepted for consideration. CEA Greatest Anthology Written and CEA Through the Dark are placed within the Anthology categories, while Hegis’ Grasp is placed within the Novelette category. Each of them have horror and psychological thriller elements, making them our most suitable candidates for this award.

Here is some more information on the awards:

In recognition of the legacy of Shirley Jackson’s writing, and with permission of the author’s estate, the Shirley Jackson Awards have been established for outstanding achievement in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic.

Shirley Jackson (1916-1965) wrote such classic novels as The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, as well as one of the most famous short stories in the English language, “The Lottery.” Her work continues to be a major influence on writers of every kind of fiction, from the most traditional genre offerings to the most innovative literary work. National Book Critics Circle Award-winning novelist Jonathan Lethem has called Jackson “one of this century’s most luminous and strange American writers,” and multiple generations of authors would agree.

The Shirley Jackson Award will be voted upon by a jury of professional writers, editors, critics, and academics, with input from a Board of Advisors. The awards will be given for the best work published in the preceding calendar year in the following categories: Novel, Novella, Novelette, Short Story, Single-Author Collection, and Edited Anthology.

 

You can also read here for the list of jurors that will be doing the judging. Here’s wishing our publications the best of luck in these awards!

 

Kind regards

General Fiction and Horror CELENIC EARTH ANTHOLOGY Paperbacks Available in South Africa

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.

The CEA Through the Dark Horror #1 and CEA Writers without Boundaries #1 pages have been updated with the new distribution levels. You can click on the book images below to be taken straight to the sales pages.

In other news, the press release for CEA Through the Dark has been on the top daily, weekly and monthly news for the first week of it being published, so we are glad that it is receiving such great publicity. Hopefully expanding the distribution will also increase its interest and availability around the world.
