That’s right, Julia Quinn is on Instagram.
At a recent event at the Seattle Public Library, JQ talked about being a writer and then took a bunch of reader questions, divulging — among other things — what was behind the last lines in The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband. The talk was recorded for the Seattle Public Library’s podcast. We’ve posted JQ’s podcast episode to the site — it’s almost like being there yourself!
And if you’re into audio, check out JQ’s audio excerpt page. Seventeen audio clips — almost an hour and a half of excerpts to enjoy.
JQ has updated everyone’s favorite frequently-asked-question: What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made in your books? Go on, click. You know you want to know the answer.
JQ just returned from Europe where her travels took her through Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary, and she added photos from each country to this site (click on the country name)! And if you haven’t seen the gallery of photos from Brazil, check it out!
To celebrate her recent super fun travels, she’s thrilled to announce a major update to JQ AROUND THE WORLD with new countries/languages added (Lithuania, Romania, and Slovakia), and major updates to Russian language editions, Portuguese (for both Brazil and Portugal).
JQ is over the moon about the reader response to The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband. An instant fan favorite! Library Journal nailed it with their verdict: “Funny, spicy, and fast-paced, this spirited Bridgertons prequel is sure to be a fan-pleaser and may gain Quinn some new devotees as well.” So much so that all you readers put Edward and Cecilia’s story all the way up at #5 on the NYT Bestseller List and #8 on the USA Today List! THANK YOU FROM JQ!
Celebrate with Make-Believe music! JQ rolls out the Soundtrack for The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband. And if you haven’t ordered your copy yet, read the first two chapters for free, or mix it up and switch to the audio excerpt, which starts at Chapter 2. Enjoy!
“Quinn’s fans will be grateful she’s crossed the pond for this textured look at life in New York during the 1770s” Kirkus (Starred). And Booklist (also Starred), celebrates an “abundance of dry wit and swoonworthy romance for which she is best known and loved.” The only thing to say that’s better than that is: NOW AVAILABLE! Go get it! There is no more waiting!
Here are ten things JQ-ish to pass the day until The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband releases tomorrow!
1. Remember that JQ has a book that starts with “Ten Things” and click over to watch that video book promo again. So fun!
2. Listen to a bunch of audio clips from JQ novels.
Oh, Happy Wednesday! Chapter Three of The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband was posted to USAToday’s HappyEverAfter blog this morning. Start on JuliaQuinn.com for the first two chapters, then head over for Chapter Three! If you’ve preordered then you will be able to read Chapter Four as early as this coming Tuesday, May 30. (To be fair, if you ordered an autographed copy, you may have to wait a few more days, but worth it!)
