The Adventures of Johnny tells us a few tales over a number of chapters about a young boy named Johnny. It will very much appeal to the younger generation and teenagers today, who very much have an active imagination. It is very reminiscent to the Chronicles of Narnia, in the way the adventures unfold in each chapter towards the climax of the story.

If you are a fan of magic, mystery and action, and so very young at heart, then this book is perfect for you. We will be spending the first few weeks of 2019 getting the paperback in our local Libraries, as well as libraries in the United Stated, United Kingdom and Australia.

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.
