JEA began long ago, but we started releasing books a little over a year ago. I may view the press business all wrong, but I see it this way: you can doll yourself up for the prom, snap a picture, and look amazing, and that is wonderful. You can also get your hair done at a salon, get a fancy outfit, and have professional photos made. Which will look better? The second choice. Does that make you have more fun at the prom? No. It's the way I see presses. Some of the (big 5) really do amazing things but you are never promised a lot of money and a career. It's a gamble that few are able to accept.
JEA isn't huge and we can't promise a big career either but instead of letting our writers go out half-dressed, we do provide edits, fantastic covers, advice, PR, sales avenues, and more. We;ll make you look good for the prom. We will give each person support and the ability to have a voice in what happens to their manuscript. I think we are the the happy medium between a big press deal and going out there alone.
This is a planned JEA antho for those authors who have content that is so over the top, so disgusting and gross, that that it is not fit for normal consumption! All authors and JEA authors are invited to sub.

Hey Big 5! We think we can compete.
Corey Somerset, Tim Hayworth and Lee Hunter have had one hell of a good night.
And it isn't over yet.
Celebrating their friend's birthday with drunken debauchery and intoxicated antics they've just stumbled through a mini-wave of mindless vandalism and though they've wandered far out of the realms of civilization they are keen to keep the party vibe going.
When they encounter a band of mysterious fugitive women who call a bizarre encampment deep in the woods their residence it appears a strong likelihood that continuing the party is on the cards.
But it won't come without a price.
The collective of unnerving lawless women are open to the suggestion but not without the threesome completing a request first, a seemingly straight forward barter proposition that will bring the boys face to face with something else that dwells in an unorthodox co-existence with the girls in the wilderness.
These are the Plebs and the shocking violent encounter the trio are unwittingly pitched into with these freakish feral fiends may be their first but it won't be the last.
As the shiftless young men become inextricably entwined and involved with the agenda driven dangerous women so too do their fates, with them unravelling killer secrets, duplicity, bloodshed and brutality along the way that encompasses not just them but more of their friends, new enemies and old enemies.
A simple night of bad decisions escalates and snowballs into an expedition of terror spanning all the way home and beyond with Corey and his friends engulfed in a nightmare where the lines between man and monster blur.
Depravity, death and destruction reign supreme and it isn't just the Plebs that want them all torn limb from limb.
