So it’s been a week since we last updated the blog. Lots of things have been going on here at the Mightier Than the Sword UK offices, firstly we have some sad news to report – the Nottingham launch of the Furies poetry book has been delayed but as soon as we know when it has been rescheduled to then we shall let you know. Gotham starts tonight for those in the UK and we could not be more excited! There are new updates coming to the site soon but our web gremlins have been busy sorting out some new updates for our tumblr, facebook and twitter pages.
There have been quite a few book review requests coming in over the last few weeks so watch this space for some exciting books you might just want to read.
We’re also going down to a skeleton staff next week as quite a few people are jetting off to sunnier climes to escape the wet and windy autumn weather that has finally arrived, so lots of work is being done in preparation for going down in numbers now – hence us being so quiet on the blogging front. Those who are not off on their holidays seem to be called away from work by the siren call of the Shadow of Mordor and Aliens: Isolation. We hate to think what is going to happen next month when DragonAge: Inquisition hits the shelves.
With the dip in weather we have begun delving into the extensive collection of tea here in the office that ranges from Lapsang Souchong to Whiskey Tea to keep us all warm when we keep going in and out of the office. In our general viewing we seem to have gone a bit retro over here with the real adventures of Jonny Quest, Bucky O’Hare, the real Ghostbusters, The Herbs, The Racoons and other classic viewing from our childhood on in the background whilst we eat our breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea and supper – yes we do subscribe to the hobbit lifestyle.
All-in-all we have been busy with lots of small things that take up a ridiculous amount of time, when they are done you don’t have a lot to show for it but really need doing but hopefully with all the little things done it does mean we can get on with all the big showy things now that shout to the world we’ve managed to do something other than rediscover some of our favourite childhood viewing. Up next on our playlist is Earthworm Jim, TailSpin and Darkwing Duck…Let’s get dangerous.
