And with that we are pleased to announce that the horror anthology, CEA Through the Dark Volume 2 is complete with a full list of writers. The following writers are set to be featured in the upcoming anthology.

  • Shaun M Jooste
  • Andi Hodgetts
  • Grannd Kane
  • Macaylin Govender
  • Dan Allen
  • Kevin Damen
  • Duane Ratswander
  • Alex Gates
  • A Christina Portillo
  • Robbie Jackson-Keenan

We look forward to working with these horror writers and reading through their short stories. We have a tentative publishing date planned for April / May 2018, but will have a more concrete date closer to the time.

The fantasy anthology, CEA Past your Reality, almost has a complete roster of writers too, with only a few places left. We have opened team chat channels for the anthology so long as we prepare to start with the fantasy program.

If you would like to submit to any of the open anthologies, feel free to visit our submissions page. Also, visit our Twitter feed and Facebook page for further news.

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.

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!

Call for Short Story Writers: LGBT & Erotica

In keeping with our 2017 Anthology Schedule, we have two new anthologies coming up for September. We will be accepting 15 writers on a first come, first serve basis and adding you to our Anthology Closed Facebook Group. Word limits are between 5 and 10k, and the deadline is 31 August 2017.

CEA WITHIN THE PRIDE VOLUME 1

This will be the LGBT anthology, featuring stories written by members in the LGBT community as well as those in support of them.

 

CEA UNDER THE SHEETS VOLUME 1

 

This will be our erotica anthology, which we have surprisingly received quite a few requests for. We suspect this one will do quite well among our readers.

So for any that wish to submit a request to join any of these anthologies, please email us or send us a comment or message on our facebook page.
