Books & Quills Magazine was founded on March 22nd, 2016 after a group of writers recognized the need for a book magazine accessible to readers and writers of a diversity of ages and tastes.
Thanks to the dedication of our staff members, we were able to go live on Facebook and Twitter on May 1st. Since then, we’ve been posting book reviews, recipes, puzzles, prompts, advice for writers–and so much more!
Our website went live on October 1st, 2016! We still have a long way to go, and we’ll hope you’ll join us through our journey!

The Portal Prophecies
The Prophecies are the key to their survival. Can they solve them in time?
Willow, is a teenage girl, growing up on her own in a magical world, where the events of the past are a mystery. Oppressed by their leaders, only a handful of the inhabitants of this realm remember the truth. A series of events set her and her friends on a journey like no other, leading them to a new understanding of themselves, their feelings and their abilities. As they begin to unravel the lies, they find themselves the sole opposition to a plot that could destroy all existence. The one clue they have is a book filled with hundreds of predictions called ‘The Portal Prophecies’. Deciphering them however, will not be an easy task. Written by someone from their past, the pages are lined with riddle like poems. Even worse they appear to be in no particular order.
Each book is based on a different prophecy leading our heroes and heroines to new places and new friends while experiencing growing pains along the way. The entire series, delves deep into the understanding of magic and self-discovery, all the while questioning the right versus wrong equation on personal levels.
As the books progress, readers will find some new explanations for old tales, myths, legends, folk lore and unusual phenomena that could just make them question the validity of stories we all have grown up with. Vampires, Witches, Ghosts, Monsters, Santa Claus, Atlantis, Elves, Dragons, Faeries, find out the alternate truth to them all.
