Well the celebrations of halloween and bonfire night are both past and with everyone returning to the offices here at Mightier Than the Sword UK, we are finally back to getting on top of everything.

We’re really proud to be able to announce that C.S. Woolley has reviewed Soul Skin by Jan Porter and the review is now up in our Book Reviews section. It’s a great book and we all really wish Jan all the success in the world with it.

We’re having a belated halloween and bonfire party this weekend to celebrate the two events and to welcome back all our wonderful globe trotters.

As NaNoWriMo marches on, C.S. Woolley is struggling with her word count but the web gremlins who have taken on the challenge are miles ahead (clearly we need to find more work for them to do)

And finally we’d like to make mention of the poppy appeal, Remembrance Sunday and the Royal British Legion. Every year the poppy appeal is run by the Royal British Legion in the UK in order to raise money for the soldiers that have fought for the UK and their families. This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the start of the First World War and there have been many events being held around the country to remember those who lived through the First World War and all of those that died. This Sunday (9th November) is Remembrance Sunday and there will be church services held around the country as well as parades and the televised commemoration where the Queen, Prime Minister and dignitaries from throughout the Commonwealth. We would like to encourage everyone to wear their poppies with pride and if you can afford to there are some beautiful poppy pins available from the Royal British Legion as well as the traditional paper poppies.
