Hop over to the blog of Dan O’Brien (author of The End of the World Playlist and other novels) to read an author interview with yours truly .  Here is a small excerpt:

Dan: What should readers walk away from your books knowing, feeling?

Joleene: When they get done it would be nice if they thought “Wow, that vampire is hot! (I don’t even care which one)” but really I just want them to be entertained. There are enough novels out there that want to change the world. I just want to pass an afternoon. That may be an old fashioned concept on entertainment vs art, but, like the quote in the new Avengers movie, “People might just need a little old-fashioned.” And I think its success proves that. It’s great to have movies and books that trash the genres and turn things on their heads, but sometimes we all get sick of that. Sometimes, we just want to see someone get their butt kicked and know the hero is going to save the girl.

Also, be ready tomorrow for my first radio interview at 8pm Central time (though since it is blog talk radio you can listen to it later) .

Hope to see everyone there! 😉

  2. congratulations! Its great to be recognised like that & there’s nothing wrong with good old fashioned entertainment. I’m rather partial to it myself!

    • Thanks! Hee-hee, me too! Entertainment should be entertaining – not a constant assault on the senses like so many try for 🙂

  3. Nice interview! Way to go! Congratulations on your sales.
