How To Recognize An Author

After I published my latest book SCENTS and SENSUALITY, I blogged on Authors of Main Street about how to recognize an author. The post, inspired by the general messiness of my office and home after I'd focused solely on writing for several weeks, elicited a lot of feedback from authors.

Yesterday, I premiered the video, How To Recognize An Author, on YouTube. (Direct Link: -- feel free to pass it on. (I appreciate any Comments, Facebook Likes, Tweets, etc.)

Here's my video: How To Recognize An Author. Hope it gives you a chuckle today.

  1. Fun, Joan--except for the getting dressed part. I really prefer the sweats!
