    THE QUILLS SIGN OFF AND MOVE ON

    We know, we didn't give you any warning. The truth is, we, ourselves, didn't realize that we were going to shut down Running With Quills until a couple of days ago. It was one of those sudden, intuitive group decisions and once it had been made we knew we wanted to do it fast, make it clean and move on.

    RWQ has been a wonderful adventure for all of us. You -- the fabulous readers who dropped in to visit and chat -- are the reason this blog worked so well for so long. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your warmth and friendship. But as we all know, if there's one thing that's certain about the online world, it is that the only constant is change. Below you'll read some farewell sentiments from each of us and find links to our other online homes.

    We wish you all the best of the holiday season and the New Year. And we hope you will visit us elsewhere in Cyberland.

    Sincerely,

    Jayne, Stella, Elizabeth, Kate, Lori, Carla and Susan

    STELLA CAMERON:



    Thank you for sharing our Quills space and for sharing yourselves with us.
    I shall miss you, my flowers, but I hope you'll keep in touch. Please come and find me at:

    Lori Foster:



    To every reader who ever visited us here at Quills, I hope you got at least half as much enjoyment from our blogs as I got from your responses.

    A writer without readers would be a terrible thing. I don't want to lose touch with you, so please visit me at some of my other social medias!

    Susan Andersen:



    It's been such a fun run with the Quillsters. I was leery of blogging when Elizabeth Lowell invited me to join RWQ and at first declined the offer. Then I thought, Are you crazy, girl? Pass up the opportunity to hang out with Elizabeth and Jayne and Stella and Lori and (at that time) Suzanne? So I gave it a pop and discovered a whole new world of online friends.

    I've loved getting to know those of you who posted. And I hope you'll join me on Facebook at
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Susan-Andersen/143285819043638 or stop by and browse through my webpage at www.susanandersen.com.

    Thank you one and all—you've made the past few years incredibly pleasurable!

    ~Susan

    Carla Neggers:



    I enjoyed being one of the Quills and meeting so many wonderful readers and writers here. People can find me on Facebook or Twitter:

    facebook.com/carlaneggers#!/pages/Carla-Neggers/119985488060713

    twitter.com/carlaneggers

    --Carla

    Elizabeth Lowell:



    I've been more skulker than presence, yet I'm going to miss everyone. Please keep in touch though my website elizabethlowell.com and find me on Facebook at facebook.com/ElizabethLowellFans

    Until then, have a wonderful holiday season.

    --Elizabeth

    Kate Douglas:



    I've really enjoyed being a part of the Running With Quills community—when Jayne invited me to join in January 2009, I was totally blown away by the chance to hang out with all those fantastic authors whose books fill my keeper shelves. (Sort of a book addict's dream) It's been fun, getting to know my fellow Quills and discovering what terrific ladies exist behind the “author persona,” (They're not nearly as scary as I thought they were...well, not ALL the time, anyway...) and I've also loved getting the chance to meet the rest of Quillsville—you know who you are! The ones who come back week after week to see what kind of trouble we're getting into.

    But just as blogs once burst onto the cyber-stage, we're seeing new social networking venues taking their place. As writers, we can only stretch ourselves just so far from our primary goal, which is bringing our stories to life, and after much soul-searching, we all realized that it's time for the blog to end.

    Thank you all for your friendship and your fun and fascinating questions, and I do hope you'll come and chat at some of my other ports of call:

    facebook.com/KateDouglas.authorpage

    www.aphrodisiaauthors.com/blog/

    KateDouglas-subscribe@yahoogroups.com (for newsletter and prizes)

    twitter.com/wolftales

    www.katedouglas.com

    www.katedouglas.com/eroticromance

    And to my fellow Quills—thank you all. This has been so much fun, and it's all because of you.

    --Kate

    Jayne Ann Krentz



    I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at RWQ. The opportunity to hang out with some of my sister writers was great but the truth is it is those of you who came here to visit who made this blog into a true online community. As book people we all – authors and readers -- share a very special kind of bond. I hope you will join me elsewhere on the net:

    It's not easy to say good-bye to something you really enjoy, and I've loved being part of the Quills, but we live in a world that changes so quickly and demands so much...and yes, that is a sigh year hear!

    I've made so many good friends through this blog, and I do hope you won't drift away--I'll still be on Facebook and sending out my newsletter on a regular basis. And I still answer all my email personally, so please write!

    And, since this is my last chance in this forum, I want to wish all of you the very best over the holiday season--have fun, and most of all, stay safe. And don't forget to squirrel away enough time to read a few good books!

    I also want to say that I will miss our "regulars" here at RWQ -- you know who you are! You've been a great crowd and a lot of fun. I hope you'll all come to visit us at our other online homes.

    Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

    So sad to see this wonderful blog close. I have so enjoyed the insight into what it takes to be an author.

    I don't do FB because of the extreme privacy issues and the personal information that gets passed (supposedly) inadvertantly to folks who shouldn't have it. (My picture, that was on a friend's FB, was stolen ("tagged") and is being used who knows where.)

    However, I'm glad y'all have websites and newsletters - I will keep up that way!

    Happy Holidays to everyone - and may the new year be filled with blessings.

    Blogger Rebecca Ringler said...

    Lou I hope you will reconsider fb. You don't have to show us your picture & if someone tags you, it will show up on your page & you can untag yourself or remove any post or unfriend if necessary. I have enjoyed reading your comments on here. And make sure to hunt me up even if you use a different name. - Rebecca Ringler

    You are all so special and you make it harder to say au revoir (never goodbye). Make sure when you run up against one of us elsewhere that you announce yourself as a Quillee--we have a connection. Cheers, Stella

    Anonymous Lou said...

    Rebecca - Thank you so much! I appreciate the kind words!

    Unfortunately, if it shows that your picture is "tagged", it is already too late to do anything about it - someone has it. That doesn't concern me as much as the hacker problems they've had (especially lately) wherein personal information has been dispersed over the net.

    However, I have to say that so many people are using it as a way to connect, that I may have to reconsider.

    I will miss everyone's comments here - it has been a delightful community.

    Quills: I stumbled upon your site a couple of years ago and was hooked. I am sorry that the blogs are ending as I enjoyed reading about all of you. I see that most of you are involved in other social media, so I guess I can follow you there. Thank you for a lot of enjoyable blogs and good luck in your future writing. I will be buying your work in the bookstore.
