R.E. Butler - The Tribe's Bride

1. Is there a particular genre you prefer to read when you aren't busy writing?
I'm a huge paranormal romance fan.  If it has a hero or heroine with claws, fangs, fur, wings, or supernatural powers....I'm in!
2. Is there another book in your future?
Yes, I'm always writing!  I'm releasing the fourth in my wiccan-were-bear series, A Bond of Brothers, on August 24th, and the fourth in my Wolf's Mate series will be released in October.  I'm also in the process of editing the second necklace series book, which I hope to release in the fall as well.
3. Your book has time travel in it. What inspired you to go that route?
I read several time-travel books and wondered why no one had thought to take a character back to a Native American tribe.  When I couldn’t find what I wanted to read, I decided to write it myself!
4. What motivated you to go Indie? Are you enjoying the journey?
I hadn’t heard of self-publishing before last year, but I liked the idea of being in control of my book and not going through traditional routes.  I found a beta-reader and with her support, I pub’d my first novella, A Curve of Claw in the fall of 2011.  I love writing and publishing my own books, the freedom is incredible.  I can publish as often as I want and have control over every aspect, from character names to cover design to marketing.
5. Your story involves 3 brothers and one woman. Do you consider this erotica?
Although the three brothers share one wife, there isn’t true ménage-play, and for me, that’s where I think a book with multiple partners crosses from romance into erotica.  So while I don’t necessarily consider it an erotica story, some distributors do just because it contains multiple partners.
6. Is writing a hobby or a lifelong dream?
A little of both.  I’ve been writing since I was a kid, but never had the courage to step out and send something to a publisher.  I’m very blessed that something I love doing so much has become a career and the culmination of something I wanted to do for a great portion of my life.

Include an excerpt or blurb from the book.
When a university job interview goes south, Carrie Wade isn’t certain that she’ll ever find work in her field of ancient Native American Culture. Knowing the only job waiting for her is waitressing at a coffee house, Carrie indulges in a post-disappointment shopping trip. An old necklace in an antique store window catches her eye and she immediately feels as if she cannot walk away without owning it. The very last thing she needs to do is squander her savings by investing in a necklace that may have, at one time, belonged to one of the tribes she studied…but she can’t help herself.
When she tries on the precious necklace at home, she passes out and wakes up in the tent of the necklace’s original owners, three Native American tribesmen from the late 1600s. Will she be able to get back home to the future, or will she find out that the one place she was always meant to be was back in time as the tribe’s bride?
This novella contains m/f/m/m interaction, three handsome brothers that will do anything for each other and their woman, and a magical necklace that brings them all together.
