I'm not so sure it's a good idea to put Jeff and James on stage at the same time -- Jeff has launched into a flannel board presentation, a la church talk. The authors are represented in their pre-author life, before they have received their blogs.
James interrupts Jeff before he reads a talk from "Especially from Authors."
By far, the best presentation of the night. Well, so far, that is . . .
(after the announcement . . . )
Well, James tried to steal Shannon's check. So not cool, so not cool . . .
Shannon is amazed to see that she really is getting a check. She thought we were kidding. She expresses how wonderful it is that she's part of a community, rather than just being a solitary writer, alone in her room.
