  1. They were beef steak nuggets, actually. Teriyaki. Mmm....

  2. Wow, Laura Resnick had some really bad experiences with agents:

  3. I think having authors read a snippet of their books is a great idea. Maybe you guys could cut down the ebook-talk to only every other episode to make room for it? 😉

  4. Thomas de Jong says

    I wonder were the next episode is they even say ''see you next week''.
    An don't get me wrong, this is not to complain, but i need my DragonPage fix before i go nuts.

    • The guys got really busy so we did miss a couple weeks, and I didn't get the newest show posted last night as I'd intended... but hopefully this week's and next week's shows will make up for the delay!
