4 Days Until Our Guinness World Record Event! Pre-order your copy now!

That’s right! Just 4 more days left until our Guinness World Record event for our CEA Greatest Anthology Written anthology of 108 short stories by 108 writers from all over the world! This is big! Can you feel it?!

Two witnesses will be joining us for the event this coming Saturday to make sure we conform to all the regulations as set out by Guinness World Records. We will have 300 copies available at R350 each. Considering that it is an A4 sized volume of 540 pages, with 108 astounding short stories, and the same A4 size volumes of 250 pages is more expensive at retail bookstores (over R400!!)…

OUR VOLUME IS A STEAL!!!

So please make sure you don’t miss this massive event taking place right here in Cape Town. If you are worried that the books will be sold out before you get there this Saturday, you can head on over to our Order page and place a pre-order for a copy to be kept aside for you.

Remember, these are the event details:

Parow Library, c/o Mcintyre St and 1st Ave,, Parow, 7500

Saturday 17 March 2018, 10:00 – 12:30

We will have local writers at the event to sign copies should you wish to have them signed, and you will be able to place orders for any of our other books available for sale. Hope to see you there!

 

 

South Africans Can Order the Guinness World Record Anthology of 108 Stories Directly From Us

We’ve recently discovered that, despite our best marketing, South Africans are still not aware that CEA Greatest Anthology Written, our world record anthology of 108 short stories, is available here in South Africa. Celenic Earth Publications is a publishing company based in Cape Town, with distributors available to send the volume anywhere in South Africa.

Many have been wanting to buy our volume, but thought it was only available internationally on Amazon and other global leading outlets. We’re happy to remind you that this is not true. We have local distributors, which means you will save on shipping costs and not have to wait for your copy to arrive.

So if you’d to order locally, just head on over to our order page for CEA Greatest Anthology Written, go down to the Paypal or Payfast options (payfast is faster for us to process), and click on the buttons to order your copy.

We sell our A4 550-page volume directly at R300 per copy, which is a major discount from the R500 the book stores will be selling it for because of their markup prices. Also, the current Guinness World Records 2018 book out now is priced at R360 at retail stores for 256 pages, so in comparison our volume is a steal!

If you have any queries for bulk orders, kindly email us for us to prepare a special payment link for you.

CEA GAW Guinness Record Anthology Pre-orders and Event Donation

Yesterday, we made a very special announcement that we had started a Jumpstarter (SA version of Kickstarter) campaign towards funding our Guinness World Record event, where we need to print 1000 paperback copies and have them sold before the record can be verified.

We noticed that no one as yet had started making pledges, but we have received donations directly from those who are supporting the initiative. So far, 6 paperback copies have been catered for, 3 as pre-order and 3 as donations, with a few direct messages indicating that more are coming. Yet, they’d rather not pledge on Jumpstarter.

And now we know why. As wonderful as the Jumpstarter campaign is, we’ve been told that many are unsure how to use the site, and also it would be far easier just to EFT the funds to us directly. So the sponsors are there, but they want another means available to help us reach our goals.

We are therefore setting up a pre-ordering and donation system. We tried at first to use Paypal, but learnt very quickly how unfriendly the Paypal codes are with WordPress, and that it is a headache to set it up. We’ve researched WordPress and many community forums, and it seems everyone is having the same problems.

Have no fear. Here in South Africa we use Payfast. It allows South Africans to EFT payments to us effortlessly and safely, while international sponsors can use their cards to help us out. Don’t worry about the Rand value indicated below; the payment will be converted for you by your location, I believe.

These buttons have been made available on our site’s sidebars on some pages too.

CEA Past your Reality Fantasy Anthology #1 – Released Date: 19 June 2017

We are proud to announce that our latest upcoming anthology, CEA Past your Reality Volume 1, will be released on Monday 19 June 2017. Five authors have been working hard at getting their stories to us, and we’ve been working on editing and cover images these last few days, that it really feels like an anthology earned!

If you would like to pre-order the ebook so long, you may do so on Amazon . The paperbacks and ebook distribution on other platforms like Smashbook and Nook should be out at the same time, all things going well.

As a bit of a tease, here are the authors and their stories within the Fantasy Anthology:

  • Dean Clark – The Battle for Home
  • Karl Taylor – Broman the Vegetarian
  • Sarah Beth James – Carnival of Fear
  • Janika Hoffmann – Calling Winds
  • Shaun M Jooste – Dreams of Change

As you can see, it features two authors who have individual books published by CEP already, namely Dean’s ‘Hegis’ Grasp‘, and Shaun’s fantasy trilogy and Silent Hill novel.

The next pair of anthologies that we will be focusing on is a Noir Anthology and a Crime Thriller Anthology, set for release end July 2017. We will also be gauging the interest in two other genre anthologies, while working on CEA Through the Dark Volume 2 and CEA Writers without Boundaries Volume 2. More information to follow at a later date.

Finally, we are extending our Sci-Fant competition for lucky winners to win free ebook copies of CEA Past your Reality. Entries will be open until the book is published on 19 June 2017, so make your way to the competition page for more details.
