It’s with great sadness and devastation that we announce that our beloved Dame Turquoise Jane Toombs has passed away. Jane was one of the original members of Jewels of the Quill and, long before, was known as a champion of other writers as well as for new publishers (especially electronic publishers). To know Jane was to love her. She was such an amazing person as well as a phenomenal writer. She participated in every one of the group anthologies except our first Valentine’s Day collection. Her many, many novels will live on as a testament to her brilliance. Visit her website for more information: http://www.janetoombs.com. Also, join Janet Lane Walters at her blog to read a memorial to Jane: http://wwweclecticwriter.blogspot.com/. Jane will be greatly missed.
You may have noticed that our Jewels of the Quill months are getting shorter. The reason for that is, after ten amazing years together, the group has decided to disband as of June 20, 2014, which is when our website domain will expire. We love our fans, and we’ve had such a blast together. We’re so grateful that all of you came along with us for a decade of fabulous authors and books. This month, we’re having a bon voyage giveaway (below) to coincide with our May spotlight, then in June, to go along with our final spotlight, we’ll have personal farewells from each member of the group.
