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!

From a Reader’s Perspective:

Many people have the opinion that self-published books are usually of lower quality than books from established publishing houses.  Yet most voracious readers have ploughed through mainstream-published books that aim for mass appeal, but contain little or no originality. Both self-published books and those from large publishers are often peppered with grammatical errors and misspelled words. We don’t believe in creating a war between authors, just as we don’t believe in literary snobbery; quality literature is quality literature, regardless of its mode of production. We want to hear your opinions (complimentary and/or constructively critical) of self-published books you’ve read. Have you perceived differences in quality between self-published and mainstream-published books? If so, what are these differences? Please avoid sweeping statements and wide-ranging generalisations; we’re looking for specifics.
