I've finally discovered how to vlog without taking all day to film and edit the thing! So here's my first video, about what it means to authors to get fan mail -- and how to increase your chances of getting a prompt, personal reply from an author when you write:

Great vlog. I'm always in awe of people who can came across as well as you did on video!

So what does it say about me that I want to watch it again just in order to track the appearances and dissappearances of the cat in the background? 8-P

I thought that might amuse some people. :)

Kittehs! :)

Very nice job--you are so relaxed and self-possessed on camera. I'm lusting over your bookshelves, and I know I need new glasses, but are the titles backwards?

They are backwards, yes! I forgot to flip the image from my webcam. Next time I'll remember. :)

Saw this on twitter, RJ - very nicely done!

BTW, I was checking out e-readers in Borders this p.m., and actually loved the little five-inch Sony. It only cost (on sale) about 30 dollars more than the Kobo, but it can display RTF and PDf and you can make notes! And there was another one for only $100 U.S. that also displayed all these types of text, but without the note-taking ability.

Sorry for the randomness there! I think your film came out very well, and it's good advice.

You and your kitty are wonderful!
