When I woke up this morning, I had a notice about a new Blog post from one of the Blogs I subscribe to. That post was by Jenny Turner, who writes as J.R. Turner. Her Blog was entitled “The End of the Road.” I was going to respond on her Blog, but then I decided that I would do it here and toss in a few other things.
In her Blog, Jenny talks about the changes in her life. One of the things she mentions is the reversion of all her rights. Anyone who knows the situation, knows I was Jenny’s publisher. I have already had one person ask me what happened, why I reverted her rights to everything, like there was some horrible altercation or something. Let me be clear, I reverted Jenny’s rights because her contracts expired and she had previously embarked on her journey as a self-publisher. Jenny was with Echelon Press for nearly the entire time of its existance and she will always remain a part of its history, and a very important part.
Jenny is one of the most talented writers I have ever met. Her wit is sharp, her style is enchanting, and her ability is stunning. She tells a story almost as good as any writer I know. I sincerely hope that when she has reissued her works in her own venue that you will offer her the support she so richly deserves. If you have not read her work, you should, you will not be sorry!
I wanted to write this post to ensure Jenny and anyone who enjoys an awesome story knows that despite how Jenny described it, this is not the End of the Road for her, it is the beginning of an awesome journey.
I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve goot to say.
But maybe yyou could a little more in the wway of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of tsxt for only having one or two
pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
Jenny was my editor on Fur-Face. Like you, I wish her nothing but success 🙂
Interesting how Jenny explains herself in her blog post. Not a lot of passion there, but then, that’s the only post of hers I’ve ever read … and I’m not all that fussed about reading any others. Not because I have any feelings one way or another about her abilities as a writer or as a blogista, but because she didn’t grab me with what could’ve been a very powerful topic.
