Bookswarm helps out World Book Night

We have been helping out the team organising World Book Night, providing them with advice and support on how to get the best out of WordPress, which powers their recruitment site at In case you haven’t heard, here’s about the event:

World Book Night represents the most ambitious and far-reaching celebration of adult books and reading ever attempted in the UK and Ireland.

On Saturday, 5 March 2011, two days after World Book Day, with the full support of the Publishers Association, the Booksellers Association, the Independent Publishers Guild, the Reading Agency with libraries, World Book Day, the BBC and RTE, one million books will be given away by an army of passionate readers to members of the public across the UK and Ireland.

Bookswarm is pleased to have been able to provide support for this venture.

Bookswarm builds Christina Hopkinson’s new site

We are very pleased to have designed and built a new website for Hodder author Christina Hopkinson – stage one, which is now live, is a one-page microsite but this will soon be expanding to a full blog. Christina’s new book, The Pile of Stuff at the Bottom of the Stairs, will be published by Hodder & Stoughton in March 2011.
