So much is new on JuliaQuinn.com since Queen Charlotte was published—take a look!
New Author Notes & New Character Profiles
~Are you one of the tens of thousands of site visitors who’ve pored over the Bridgerton Character Profiles? Well, now you can do the same with the Smythe-Smith Character Profiles. (Coming soon: Bridgerton Sightings in the Smythe-Smith Quartet.)
~Always a reader favorite: JQ’s Author Notes that go Inside the Story, and Queen Charlotte‘s will not disappoint. Look for some insight into the writing process (including where the show influenced the book), some history on the real Queen and King, plus a bit about the Transit of Venus, which is a real thing! (Queen Charlotte will also have a Soundtrack. That’s coming soon.)
Brand New JuliaQuinn.com Features
~JQ books go on sale all the time and sometimes for only a few days. So TeamJQ built a page devoted to JQ book sales. No matter the format: ebook, print, or audio, money-saving info will be highlighted there (and wee bees will show up in a bunch of other site areas to alert you as well, like below).
~Attention collectors: A Special Editions page has been added complete with photos of the beautiful Bridgerton collections that can be had. Moving forward, if any new collections become available, that’s the page to check.
JQ has been in the news recently, and we’ve posted a few selected articles:
~What Julia Quinn Can’t Live Without including the purple pens she autographs all her books with! As told to Arielle Avila, from New York Magazine

~JQ AROUND THE WORLD — now with new covers listed at the top in addition to lists by language and by country.
THE BOOK: Queen Charlotte — the powerful and romantic companion novel to the Netflix series Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story — is NOW AVAILABLE in hardcover, ebook, and audio. Written by Julia Quinn and Shonda Rhimes, this is the Bridgerton-verse’s take on Queen Charlotte & King George III’s love story, and how their union sparked a societal shift.
BOOK TOUR & SIGNED BOOKS: JQ is on book tour right now, but if you weren’t able to make it to one of her events, you can still order a signed copy — personalized if you wish — of Queen Charlotte. Get your copy autographed from JQ’s favorite neighborhood bookstore, University Book Store in Seattle. They carry all JQ books, and they ship worldwide.
And bonus: every book comes with a bit of author-esque swag: a beautiful bookmark (one of three different designs — which will you get?) and a magnet. And also, signed copies of the graphic novel Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron come with pigeons (sort of). Ordering your signed JQ books is easy.
*Please note that Queen Charlotte will be autographed by JQ only; Shonda Rhimes is not able to sign the books.
The Strategist asked Julia Quinn about what she can’t live without, and the pen she uses to sign book is on that list. Find out what else!
