Deena is back with Peter to go off on authors that feel the need so deeply for validation they are wiling to pay vanity publishers to get it. This a a rare episode where the gloves are off and Deena Rae gives straight talk in completely blunt and no holds-barred style.

When Deena Rae isn’t bitching, Peter actually gets to talk about a Facebook advertising method, and his favorite sheep of the day, Flossy….

Episode with Peter & Deena – Deena’s first time letting someone else edit…

Book Numbers, Booze and Barrett Brown:  In this week’s podcast Deena and Peter discuss the importance of owning your own ISBN numbers and the possibility of sharing them with other authors.  Also under the microscope is social media and as ever the booze, what the Scots call the bevvy.  Does a writer really need it?  Seems like these two do.  Peter also talks about imprisoned Texan writer Barrett Brown while Deena gets ready for a big date that wasn’t.

Deena is back with Janet to  rag on Peter for standing them up…poor boy was sickly and they didn’t want to subject the listeners to his croaking, coughing and sneezing. The Texas Duo discuss #HoustonAuthorBash, swag ideas, utopia for writers and authors, and the awesome new idea that Amtrack has just completed a pilot experiment test run. As the girls are chatting we hear that one of them has a birthday milestone coming up and get a sneak peek into the plans these women are making to celebrate.

Deena is back with Peter this week. For a short show, there was plenty discussed…book length classifications, Google+ as well as Facebook Pages and Twitter, past lives,  book fairs and expos, just to name a few.  Deena tells about her experience thus far with publishing her own book and gives plugs to herself and Peter has to cut the show short since he develops a craving for Jägermeister. (Hence the intro and exit song by Tattooed Mother Fuckers)

Deena is back with Peter and Janet to kick the new year off right. We get to catch up with the 3 hosts to find out if Janet is still an aspiring author, if Peter has published anything this year, and if Deena has started a career in porn. Just kidding but she does make the leap into publishing her own book and gives plugs to herself.  We talk about promoting books, pricing them, puking, and Peter’s affinity for hugging wood and the pyromaniac tendencies of one of the hosts.

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!
