When Rosanna Cappiello and Mark Allan Smith released the inaugural issue MOB Fiction Magazine in June of last year, there we many attempts to publish a follow-up issue, and as with any new venture, there are growing pains and these regrettably these caused several delays. Because of my relationship with MOB Fiction Magazine as a contributing writer, I knew of their intentions to make the issue not only better then the first, Mark wanted to improve the overall design appearance but also how the magazine interacts with the end user. This alone was a challenge, but after months of trial and error, success at last.
