Every thing hath ende.
I’m going to blow this popsicle stand.
–Jaunty P. Quills
Due to increasing commitments with family and careers, the Sisterhood of the Jaunty Quills has regretfully decided to wind down this blog. Our last post will go up on November 18. The blog archives will remain available for months afterward, so you’re welcome to stop by and check out your favorite posts–and enjoy Jaunty’s sass.
We’ve loved getting to know each other better, and above all, getting to know you, the blog readers. (As for Jaunty…well, there’s no hope for him. He’s only interested in pine nuts.) Some of us wanted to share a quick message with our feelings about the blog:
Shana Galen: As one of the founders of the Jaunty Quills, I feel a special affinity for the blog. It’s become a part of my life. I’ll miss checking in everyday.
Jaunty: I, for one, won’t miss this blog at all. I was never given my proper due. But now that I’m Taylor Swift’s new bae, I’m going to blow this popsicle stand and soak up my celebrity status.
Kathleen O’Brien: I’ve loved being part of the Jaunty Quills and will miss being here so much. Getting to know my writer friends, and making so many new reader friends, has been such a joy. I hope we’ll stay in touch! My website is KathleenOBrien.com, and if you’d like to say hi more personally, you can email me at KOBrien@aol.com. My Facebook page is Kathleen O’Brien (Author) (https://www.facebook.com/KathleenOBrienAuthor). My Twitter account is KOBrienRomance. (https://twitter.com/KOBrienRomance)
Cindy Kirk: It’s never easy to say good-bye to those you’ve come to regard as friends. So, I won’t say good-bye but rather “I’ll see you” on Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for sharing the past eight years with me!
Nancy Robards Thompson: I will always be grateful to Cindy Kirk for inviting me to be a Jaunty Quill in September 2008. It’s been a fabulous eight years, during which I’ve made some great friends. I hate goodbyes. So, I hope we can stay in touch. You can connect with me at NancyRobardsThompson.com; on Facebook at Nancy Robards Thompson Books – www.facebook.com/nancyrobardsthompsonbooks and https://www.facebook.com/nrobardsthompson; on Twitter at @NRTWrites; and on Instagram at @NancyRThompson.
Theresa Romain: I’ve long been a reader of this blog, and I was honored to be invited to join the Jaunty company. The other bloggers have become my friends, I’ve met fabulous and funny readers, and I’ve spent a fortune on pine nuts for Jaunty so he won’t go changing the WordPress settings. I’m so grateful to have been a part of this blog, and I hope we’ll all keep seeing each other online.
Kristan Higgins: I remember how honored I was when Cindy asked me to join the blog, and how welcome all you readers made me feel. It’s been a pleasure and an honor, and I hope you’ll keep in touch and visit my other blog… www.kristanhiggins.com/blog. I post one almost every week. Obviously, I’m going to miss Jaunty terribly, and as I said regarding one Tom Hiddleston, Taylor Swift is one lucky woman. Jaunty, I’ll be here for you when she moves on.
Jaunty: Like I care. You think the fact that you were the only one here to put me in a book makes you special, Higgins?
Kristan: Yes, actually, I—
Jaunty: Gotta run. Taylor wants to go clubbing.
Until November 18, we’ll keep bringing you new posts, guest authors, and giveaways galore. Thanks, dear readers, for joining us for this wonderful ride!
