Well we still can’t reveal too much of what is going on here, but we can introduce all of you out there to C.S. Woolley’s Pinterest board for the Raven Siren.

There have also been some new updates to the Raven Siren shorts crowdfunding project – with new crew being added and the details of the project having been updated with new information as well as a break down of what the funding is all for!

Having sat through some of the costume discussions that are currently being had, I can tell you that the crew involved are all dedicated and passionate about this and are working harder than we are to make the project a huge success!

If you want to support the project full details can be found on the Raven Siren shorts page and on the GoFundMe campaign site.

Filling the Afterlife from the Underworld: Volume 3 is going to be available for pre-order from 28th January 2015 on Kindle, Apple iBooks and a few other selected sites. We’ll post links as soon as the pre-order is live. Filling the Afterlife from the Underworld: Volume 3 will be available for general sale from all good retailers on 28th February 2015.

With only three more days to go until Christmas we are all celebrating our last day in the office until we get an emergency call saying the pipes have broken or until 29th December – whichever comes first. (our money is on the pipes breaking on Christmas Day).

We’ve been busy setting up lots of things to keep people entertained over the Christmas break including a discount on Shroud of Darkness! If you got to Smashwords and add Shroud of Darkness to your basket and at the checkout enter the code LV29T you’ll get the book for FREE! You can also get Rising Empire: Part 1 for free from Smashwords too.

Our web gremlins have been hard at work to bring you some all new pages for the Chronicles of Celadmore section that include the different festivals that the peoples of Celadmore have celebrated throughout history. We’ve timed it so that these pages will go live on Christmas Day and give a little bit more depth and history to the realm.

Keep your eyes on tumblr as well as the Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren page is going to be full of exclusive photos from behind the scenes of the rehearsal for the filming of Siren & Blade.

On 1st January we will also have the first of the maps of Celadmore going live so you can see the world whilst you read about it. The maps will only be going live online but there are plans to turn them into posters if we can find a high enough print quality and a large enough poster for the map size (you’ll see our dilemma when the map is up). There will be more maps rolling out during 2015 including city maps as well as maps across the eras and even the family trees for different lines of royalty.

There are three Nicolette Mace blogs going live on the blogspot blog between now and New Years Day. We aren’t sure whether there will be another 12 days of Christmas Reprise posted on Christmas Day as C.S. Woolley is keeping that under wraps but I guess we’ll just have to wait and hope just like everyone else.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone in the offices and our authors!

Well all the activity that comes with Christmas approaching has kept everyone here at Mightier Than the Sword UK really busy so we’ve had no chance to update the site, blog and to make things worse our email has been down for a couple of days. But everything is under control now so here is a quick update on the goings on inside our little world.

We’re all currently trading our favourite books between one another and finding that Raymond E. Feist is one author that causes an awful lot of debate on character deaths and who the best character in his books is.

We held our annual Christmas party which was filled with food and drink and ended in Halo matchmaking which is, of course, the most appropriate way to end any social gathering. Though we don’t have any embarrassing stories to share from the party, we will say that you should never judge how good someone is at Halo from their gamer profile – it leads to lots of death.

The filming for the Raven Siren shorts is underway! We’ve got some amazing content that we will be sharing – some on the Raven Siren Facebook page, some on the Mightier Than the Sword UK Facebook page and some of it on this site. We’ll keep you posted with release days for each of the shorts and any other Siren related news. It is worth mentioning that these shorts were only possible thanks to all those who have donated to the different crowdfunding projects that have been run in order to get the shorts off the ground and with another six still to go you can still donate to the GoFundMe campaign. The more money raised, the better the shorts will be and there are rewards being offered to everyone that donates.

Even more good news – the first of the digital maps for the Chronicles of Celadmore series will be online in January with others to follow over the course of 2015.

As we head into the evening with the promise of playing through Dragon Age: Inquisition we shall leave you with these photos and crafted into these amazing collages by assistant director for the Siren & Blade short, Abigail Lundie.

With the weather turning colder it was only a matter of time before germs started invading the office with germs and as we had just gotten back to full strength we are seeing our numbers dwindle as sickness descends.

For fans of Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren, regular posting has been resumed on her blog site and you can keep up with the latest thoughts and smaller adventures that she runs through in her action packed life. There is also more news on the Raven Siren filming front – yes the shorts project is going ahead under the Fastidious Monks filming label and there is a crowdfunding campaign being run on GoFundMe that C.S. Woolley has set up to help cover some of the costs. The Monks have pulled together the most expensive elements including the cameras, lighting rigs, safety equipment and sound equipment but are asking for a little bit of help getting the last few items that are detailed in the project. If you can support financially then that’s great but sharing the link on social media is appreciated too.

We have a new book review added to the site: Ahriman: The Spirit of Destruction that seems to have captured the imagination and led to all sorts of discussions about strong women so naturally Joss Whedon has been greatly talked of amongst others.

As people are complaining about colds and flu and even chest infections we would like to leave you all with the thought that whiskey and a good book go and awfully long way to helping you feel better.
