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!

Exclusive Books Launch Cancelled; Online Launch Proceeding

In a strange turn of events, Exclusive Books have advised us that due to further considerations, the planned book launch event for 14 October 2017 at the Canal Walk Shopping Centre has been cancelled. We have attempted to find out what these considerations consisted of, but are not receiving any further information.

Based on the discussions we’ve had with the branch earlier this week, we can only surmise that this has to do with the fact that Exclusive Books do not feel comfortable publishing an anthology of short stories by relatively unknown writers. Translated = Exclusive Books only supports projects that promises them profits for their commercial business, and their business has nothing to do with the writers themselves.

Fair enough. They are a business after all. I just wish they could have made this decision sooner rather than later and now disappointing everyone that was looking forward to the launch. Be that as it may, we are proceeding with the online launch on 14 October 2017 with our official distributors. We will also be pursuing other physical book launches with some of our other contacts in our network and will keep you informed.

Keep an eye out on the 14th for releases online all over the world!
