We’re joined today by guest Frank Cole, who is not only a very funny author but also manager of a large bookstore. We talk about where that industry is headed: how brick-and-mortar stores can survive despite the rise of ebooks and online discount retailers.
Next, we talk about the differences between middle grade and young adult fiction. Marion loves his bathroom humor, Rob encourages sex and violence, and Frank is perpetually ten years old. (Sarah writes Regencies, and is above all of this nonsense.)
Lastly, we play Storymatic, combining pig latin and pregnancy.
(We also have an ad, which is a first for us. But it was our favorite thing to record all day.)
