News of the Day: Best Selling Author!

C.S. Woolley, Competitions, Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren

There have been no shortage of celebrations going on this morning in the Mightier Than the Sword UK office as C.S. Woolley’s book – Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren – Filling the Afterlife from the Underworld: Volume 1 has been in the top 100 since 13th December!

Our web gremlins may have gone and done a screen print just so everyone can see!

FTAFTU 18.12.14


Filling the Afterlife from the Underworld is a collection of short stories that take you into the world of Nicolette Mace in a completely different way to Beginnings, the Kevin Metis Saga and the Derek Long Saga. Instead of focusing on the overarching villains, the short stories look at the day to day grind of her life and offer some fun little insights, infill between the books and years that are jumped over in the stories and introduce you to other people in Siren’s life that are friends, enemies and sometimes a little of both.

Though these tales might not keep you on the edge of your seat, they are funny, sarcastic and a refreshing change to trying to cram a full mystery, thriller, suspense plot into a small word count.

Filling the Afterlife from the Underworld: Volume 1 is available in paperback and digital print from

And how might you ask does C.S. Woolley decide to celebrate?

By going to see the Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies in 3D HFR wearing a cardboard beard…for the second time.


We’d all love to say we disapprove but really we’re a little bit jealous that we don’t have one of our own. Especially since though there has been some spirited debate in the office as to whether the new editions to the realm of Middle Earth have been any good, we are all agreed that the Battle of Five Armies was amazing! Badass Elrond was well worth the wait. Though we are all just a little bit sad that there won’t be any more trips into Middle Earth (aside from the multiple re-watchings of the six extended movies) we can be consoled with the fact that we do have Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor to play on after we finish playing on Dragon Age: Inquisition and Alien Isolation that is.

It’s been a while!

Chronicles of Celadmore, General Thoughts, Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren

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.
