Dear readers, today is my last regular post as a member of the Jaunty Quills (sob). I still remember when I was asked to join the blog—okay, it was only three years ago and my memory isn’t that bad—and I can honestly say it was one of the happiest days of my writing career. To be asked to join such a fantastically talented group of women on one of the best romance blogs in the blogosphere…it doesn’t get much better than that.
Actually, it does get better, because I got to know the Jaunties as friends and colleagues. I can assure you that they are as lovely, warm, and witty in person as they are on the page. It has truly been a privilege to hang with them, and I’m so grateful for that opportunity.
But sometimes life sends you off in a different direction or starts making demands that can’t be ignored. When that happens, it’s time to regroup, streamline, or just pull in your horns until the dust settles. I’ll be regrouping, although I promise I won’t be disappearing! You’ll still be able to find me on my website and on my Facebook and Twitter pages.
Many, many thanks to the Jaunties for asking me to join the conversation–I love you all. And I’m especially grateful to Shana Galen (and her wonderful assistant, Gayle), who talked me through panic attacks over the more technical aspects of the blog. And NATURALLY I’m exceedingly grateful to Mr. Jaunty P. Quills, who was always a source of inspiration and support (except when he wasn’t, which is an entirely different story).
But more than anything, I’m incredibly grateful to our readers. You share your stories, experiences, and support with us every day, and we’re so grateful for that. You are the best!
Since this is my last post as a JQ, I’d like to do a special giveaway. I’ll give away an Advanced Reading Copy of my next historical romance, MY FAIR PRINCESS (I’m really excited about this book, which kicks off my new series, The Improper Princesses). How do you handle difficult goodbyes? Tell me all about it for a chance to win the ARC.
