PAGE READERS talks with Joylene Nowell Butler author of "Dead Witness"

Today, at 10 AM PST precisely, I'll be speaking on blogtalkradio with Nanci Arvizu from Page Readers. We'll discuss my suspense thriller Dead Witness, the process of writing a novel, self-publishing, and my next novel Broken But Not Dead, due to be released by Theytus Books 2011. Hope you're able to join us. If you call in, I'll try to answer any questions you might have.

Warning: when I'm nervous, I speak too fast, hence it sounds like I'm gasping for breath during my interview.

  2. It was another really great interview. I especially liked how Nanci suggested a question but then let you talk. Instead of it being a constant question and answer session you were given the opportunity to take the listener beyond the storyline into how you felt about your characters and why, as well as what it took from you to get the book published.

    Your perseverance gives hope to other aspiring novelists, including me!

  3. @Dennis, what a nice thing to say. Thanks.

    @Carol, I really enjoyed myself, despite being terribly nervous. Wish I could relax enough not to talk so fast. Nanci thinks I sounded more natural. LOL. Not sure about that. When I listened afterwards, I could hear my mother.
    Thanks so much for taking time to listen. You've heard my spiel so many times already.

  6. You have a nice speaking voice, Joylene. Down-to-earth and natural. Much better than I could ever do.

  7. Thanks, Mirian. I bet that's not true. I think we're just too critical of ourselves. I thought I sounded too rushed, too many stutters, and not at all like myself. LOL. But Nanci did make me feel comfortable. Like talking to a friend.

  8. So sorry, Joylene, still on dial-up here in rural NS. Hope it went well, though. I'm so happy for you and the recognition you're getting for both you and your book.

  10. Great interview, Joylene. I was so excited when you mentioned me. And then you said more things that made me blush intensely. Ha. Thanks, Joylene! It's an inspirational interview that I'm sure will be useful to many.

    It was fun to hear the interview as it transitioned into a more conversational tone between you and Nanci. You two work well together and obviously enjoyed each other.
