In Episode 17 – Word Boy and Code Girl Ride Again – Deena and Mark Rice do what they know.  Deena gives valuable formatting advice, explaining why traditionally taught techniques work well for paperbacks but are fatal to e-books.  Mark shares writing tips and gives the list of books that helped him to hone his craft.  Who says Scotsmen are stingy?  As usual, the intrepid duo veer off on a few tangents, with animal husbandry making its obligatory appearance.  Deena’s Texan drawl is louder than usual, as Mark’s ears are still humming after standing in front of his bastard godfather Lemmy’s bass amp – Murder One – at a Motörhead gig only a few hours earlier.  Sit back, relax, learn and enjoy!
