Welcome to 2019!! And welcome to our new website!
We’ve been threatening to redo our website ever since we expanded our business model last year. We moved from simply publishing books to, well, so much more. Our site still only showed books that we published, and much of what we had taken on as a company was lost to the audience.
Well, no more…
As you can see by our menu bar, we do so much more than publishing books now. We have spread across much of the writing industry, incorporating other entertainment media such as games, movies, music, and also included writing news, opportunities and training.
You may think that we have taken on so much more, but we’ve actually been managing all these divisions over the last year. All we have done is increased efficiency by bringing it all together and managing it under one roof.
Our home page explains everything we do now, but for ease of reference, here are our branches within Celenic Earth Publications:
- Celenic Book Publishers: publication of novels, novelettes and short story anthologies, mainly fiction, as well as adaptation of games or movies into books.
- Celenic Game Studios: partnering with game developers to supply writers for game stories, as well as adaptation of novels or movies into games. CGS also releases news on games and the gaming industry, namely on AIR Entertainment.
- Celenic Film Studios: partnering with movie producers to supply screenwriters for film scripts, as well as adaptation of novels or games into films.
- Celenic Music Studios: partnering with music producers to supply lyrical writers for songs, as well as integration of music into films and games through our partners.
- Celenic Comic Central: publication of comic books, comic strips for magazines and newspapers, and celebrating comic developers around the world.
- Celenic News Publishers: key focus on news with regards to writers and the writing industry, with a focus on newsletters and magazines.
- Author Mentor Studios: training writers and developing their skills further.
Feel free to browse our website. We will be updating our social media in the next few days to incorporate all our branches, as well as releasing new logos for our new brands, so watch our for news on that.
Final note: We are aware that the site may not spread over the width of computer screens at the moment, but our techies are on it!
Now that our company is almost in full swing, one of our first major tasks has been accomplished. We have been dissatisfied with not having an online store where you can purchase products from us directly properly. Until now, we have had to rely on Paypal and Payfast, but now we have moved to a proper online store where you can buy on our site directly!
The store is called Celenic Book Store, which you can access from this link here. We are still working on adding our other titles, but have no fear: our parent company website (Celenic Earth Publications) will remain as we revamp it in the next few weeks to include all our divisions. Remember, Celenic Book Publishers is just one of the divisions in our company, the main source of book publications.
So visit our online bookstore, and watch as we add books and other merchandise to the store soon!
Welcome to the first novel in the Heroes of Antreya fantasy series! Two of our writers, namely Dean Clark and Shaun M Jooste, have been working on The Journey Begins for months now while writing main and side questlines for the upcoming MMORPG epic fantasy game, Antreya Chronicles. The Journey Begins forms part of the first part of the game, and Antreya Studios graphic designers and developers are working hard to transform the literary words of these two creative writers into actual gameplay.
Do not feel that reading the gamebook novel will ruin the game experience for you though. Antreya Chronicles is a vast open world fantasy MMORPG, and players will be able to embark on many side quests, as well as choose how they want to carry out the main storyline missions. The Journey Begins brings the true plot of the game out in one, clean epic fantasy novel, revealing the essence of what the game’s tale will be.
And as the title suggests, this is only the beginning. More novels in the Heroes of Antreya series will be released in 2018, as well as spin-off novels by each of the writers. This is only the start of Antreya, which will keeping you reading and playing for decades to come.
Our pre-order page for The Journey Begins will be up by this weekend, and we will be sure to update you on our social media platforms once it is live. The expected release date is 15 December 2017 in paperback and ebook formats.
Smashwords have opened their July Summer / Winter sale for readers all over the world. Authors were given the opportunity to enter their books into the sale and have their books listed at less than the retail price.
Author Shaun M Jooste’s novels were submitted and have been accepted. This means that his epic fantasy series, Celenic Earth Chronicles, and his horror novel, Silent Hill: Betrayal, will be on sale at 50% of the retail price.
