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!

Indie Publishing Podcast – Episode 15:  Gaffer Tape, Kevin Smith & Corporate Bullies

Janet joins Deena & Mark Rice to discuss gaffer tape, Kevin Smith’s talent, the Jay & Silent Bob star’s twitter battle against SW Airlines, corporate bullies and why traditional publishers seem to be imploding. The friends discuss bad writing in all forms of publishing – print, electronic, journalism, etc. Forbes magazine is called out for tarring all indies with the poor-writing tag yet failing to include major publishers in its sweeping statement, despite their history of producing lowest-common-denominator, error-ridden books. Mark takes an eye-for-an-eye approach to Forbes, pointing out that the magazine has zero literary worth, and advising it to stick to what it knows: corporate fellatio. We see Mark’s scary side when he recounts a first date.   Janet updates us on her journey to becoming a published author. Mark really must want to make ‘Die Hard With A Hard-On’, as he’s talking about it again.  Deena laughs at her husband and his nocturnal missions. Listen, laugh and learn.

Poet and author Amber Jerome Norrgard – aka The Right Reverend Amber F**kin Norrgard – joins Deena and Mark Rice to talk about her forthcoming Magnum Opus, revealing why the book took ten years to research and complete.  The concept of writing as catharsis is discussed, with examples given of how writing can be therapeutic in times of emotional conflict.  Amber performs an impromptu marriage ceremony for Deena and Mark, who are only too happy to say, “I do.”  No possums or porcupines were harmed during the recording of the show.
