This is my last post on the Jaunty Quills. I’ll pop in for the goodbye posts, but this is my last post. I’m so pleased to have my good friend, Robyn DeHart, as my guest today. We became friends through the blog, and we’ve been friends for more than 11 years now. We’ve seen each other through personal and professional highs and lows. I’m so thankful this blog brought us together. And now, here’s Robyn…
Wow! It’s totally an end of an era. It seems like forever ago when a small group of us decided to start this little blog. It’s gone through some significant changes, but at its core, it has always been a place for us to get to hang out with y’all, our fellow readers.
When the JQ’s first started my first book, Courting Claudia, had just been released from Avon Books.
I was a newlywed and I just moved away from my beloved Texas to live in Tennessee where the Professor had his first teaching position. Y’all were there for me through my homesickness, through writing crises and triumphs. You offered me support and kindness when I struggled through infertility and miscarriages and then celebrated with me when the Professor and I brought our girls home. Y’all are, in a word, friends.
I treasure the relationships I made with my fellow Quills. We might only see each other at conferences, but many of us chat weekly about our books and families. I just couldn’t let the JQ’s ride off into the sunset without stopping by and bidding everyone a fond farewell. It’s certainly not goodbye forever though, I’m still available online and you can keep up with me on Facebook and in my newsletter. I try to tweet, but frankly I kinda suck at it, but I am on there.

I want to give away digital copies of the first two books in my Brotherhood of the Sword series, Undercover With the Earl and Dueling With the Duke.
So just let me know what your favorite memory is of the Jaunty Quills and I’ll pick a winner at random.
Thanks to Shana for inviting me back today.
Thank you for stopping by, Robyn. I’ll announce Robyn’s winner on Sunday.
