Yes Monday has arrived and don’t we all know it. As the temperature has finally caught up with the time of year, we are battling with the heating system in the office and some of us are even using our keyboards with fingerless gloves. Yes we know summer couldn’t last forever and the UK would eventually plunge into the cold depths of autumn but on the plus side Game of Thrones fans – Winter is coming.

After our (mostly) hectic weekends, the office is full of Red vs. Blue quoting in one quarter and a few with heads on desks muttering something about needing to sleep more than they need to drink coffee. But thankfully our web gremlins have been drinking their coffee like good little gremlins and have been hard at work. There have been a few changes made already to the site layout and each book that we publish now has its own dedicated page. There are more changes to come but some of those will be down to you – yes you – the site users. At the moment we have two different layouts over on the Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren and the Chronicles of Celadmore pages. We’ve had some feedback already from people sending PMs to the facebook pages about the layout and the new site (thank you for that!!) but we want more. If you have a few minutes to spare take a look at the two pages and see which layout you prefer or if you think it needs something completely different! It’s completely up to you. If you do have any feedback for us then please Contact Us.

In other news C.S. Woolley will be appearing at the Furies Nottingham book launch on 14th October at the Maze and though the Nicolette Mace blog has been idle for the better part of two months there will be new posts up there later today.

Happy Monday everyone!



With all the exciting news and episodes of the new series, Gotham, flying around, it’s no surprise to us here at Mightier Than the Sword UK that Ben McKenzie is a great choice for the role of Detective James Gordon. We’re all looking forward to seeing the first episode on 13th October on Channel 5 in the UK but it has us all feeling a little bit nostalgic for the days when we first discovered Ben McKenzie in the heady days of youth in the first series of The O.C. So much so we may have gone ahead and watched the first three episodes of the teen drama series from the early noughties!

It hasn’t lost any of its magic, though we are aware that we may well have the the urge to play pirates vs. ninjas again at this rate.

Thus our web gremlins have been somewhat distracted today from adding new content to the site but they have promised that there will be some new shiny gifts for us after the weekend.

Our Christmas twitter campaign has also kicked off and has us talking about the festive season far too early, but it means we have discovered that C.S. Woolley has already done most of her Christmas shopping and what she hasn’t bought she has a list for and everyone is accounted for! We’re a little bit worried that she is too organised and all the time she has between now and Christmas that everyone else will be using to panic about presents she might well be using the time for more nefarious purposes. She’s promised to spend her time writing but somehow, we don’t believe her!

And finally for all those who are poetry buffs (as it’s World Poetry Day) there are currently two poetry compilation books out that are raising money for charity – one we have produced – Standing by the Watchtower, and the other has been put together by the wonderful ladies over at For Books Sake to raise money for Rape Crisis. The UK London launch was on 1st October and the UK Nottingham launch is set for 14th October. If you want more details about the Nottingham event please visit the Facebook page.
