The little things that slip through the cracks of proofreading often glare out at us once our copy is in print. All we can do is to hope that nobody will notice. If your audience is the Over 50s – they will notice everything! They notice the little things, the big things, and the colossal errors.They’ll find that one typo, and then they’ll tell you about it.
We have fallen prey to their proofreading mastery before, and it got us thinking “our readers are our best proofreaders”.
In one of our own books aimed at the over 50s market, we recently ran an article about how caravans are a great way to see Australia, with this picture of a caravan. Can you spot the error?
Lifestyles of The Lit & Shameless EP by Shaun ESKO
After MGK sent shots Eminem's way with "Rap Devil," Em is ready to fire back with an eviscerating cut. "KILLSHOT" is exactly that, a diss track featuring Eminem tapping into his signature anger and going for MGK's throat by way of advanced wordplay. While the game is constantly changing, even in the forum of a diss track, Eminem keeps finding new ways of moving music forward.
Em hits Kells where it hurts, clowning everything from his career to his fashion sense, to his attempts at starting beef with Bay Area rapper G-Eazy. Did Eminem take out MGK with this one? Press play and find out which artist is walking away from this beef as the victor.
Young Sheck Wes took over hip-hop with his now-massive single, “Mo Bamba.” The rising Harlem rapper went on to deliver a series of brick singles, sign with Kanye West and Travis Scott, and summon an immense amount of hype for his debut album ‘MUDBOY.’ With virality in his corner, Wes faced the daunting task of proving he is not a one-hit-wonder.
Enter: ‘MUDBOY,’ a debut album that supplants Sheck Wes’ viral success without painting in uninspired strokes. ‘MUDBOY’ is, thankfully, not an album filled with “Mo Bamba” type tracks, nor is it a series of sloppy pivots in search of another smash hit. The album is a coming-of-age story told over hot and harrowing trap production, with Wes employing a breadth of deliveries, demanding we notice and respect his range. Wes gives us stories of his childhood and Senegalese culture on “Never Lost,” and still worms in a riotous anthem with “Gmail.” With ‘MUDBOY,’ Sheck Wes proves that he is no one-hit-wonder; he’s getting really rich, though.
Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth. His reflections led him to question himself and his motives, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is the immediate product of his weighty introspection. The indie-meets-EDM influences on the project undoubtedly move music forward, but it’s rhêtorík’s hopeful message that makes him a truly enduring artist.
