Another year comes to an end. This year went by very quickly, and we didn’t get to everything we set out to do. So many things happened it was hard to keep up with it all. When we say we are ready for these December holidays, it is an understatement.
Celenic Earth Publications will be officially closing during the December holiday period from 13 December 2019 to 13 January 2020. This does not mean that work comes to a complete standstill. We will still be making use of the holiday madness to market and sell our books. The online world doesn’t come to an end. As a matter of fact it just increases.
We will also be enlarging our network overseas. This year we have managed to obtain printers in the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand who help us to distribute our books in those areas. In South Africa we already have distributors, since this is where we are based. Our latest victory is in China (Hong Kong specifically), where we have just recently established an agreement to have books printed and sold there.
Of course, with our online distributors we can practically send our books anywhere on the planet, but it helps having these connections in those countries.
So, if we’re still technically keep the sales and networking going, what does the downtime mean? Well, we won’t be working on any of our clients’ books, such as editing and publishing. You will still be able to submit requests to be published through our portal, and email us , but chances are low that we will be attending to them until January 2020.
We’ve already started closing down, just tying up loose ends before we close down completely. We’ll be preparing for next year, getting ready for the next anthologies and authors that we will be signing up. We’ll be trying to get a better footprint in the screenwriting arena, while seeing how much more we can get involved with game publishing and writing.
Our gaming news studio, AIR Entertainment, will continue to stream gaming news and reviews as they become available. So make sure you follow that site to be kept up-to-date with the latest.
And so with that, we want to wish you a wonderful holiday period. If any big news breaks out from us, we will be sure to post about it. Here’s looking forward to a better 2020.
