If you’re a lover of all things Bridgerton, you’re going to want this gorgeous new trade paperback edition of the book that started it all: The Duke and I. This new cover is for the trade paperback edition only and is available to order from all vendors.
What’s new about the trade paperback and what’s not new is all spelled out in a new FAQ. Plus, a new FAQ about the mysterious Thomas Harcourt from The Girl With the Make-Believe Husband. (Spoiler warning: don’t read the Thomas Harcourt FAQ if you haven’t read the book!)
JQ was featured on the Seattle Channel’s Art Zone with Nancy Guppy in a nine-minute video interview in which she dishes on the Netflix news, reader expectation, and the lure of a nice guy hero. Check it out!
Want more JQ video entertainment? See interviews, the video Prologue to Because of Miss Bridgerton (starring the cat on the roof), and a real music video of a real song “starring” JQ herself running in slow-motion across a lawn with a sprinkler in hand to douse a bride on fire. Really.
It’s official! Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron is going to be a GRAPHIC NOVEL!
JQ is extra excited about this — especially as it’s a collaboration with her sister Violet Charles of comics renown.
It will be well over a year before publication. As of now there is no firm release date, but as soon as any pre-order links become available we will of course post them here.
How can you see sneak peeks? JQ may post the occasional illustration on both Facebook and Instagram, but Violet will be posting tidbits about the project considerably more often, and JQ highly recommends fans of Miss Butterworth follow Violet on social media, specifically: @violetcharlescomics, fb/violetcharlescomics, or to see sneak peeks first as well as exclusive outtakes, follow Violet on Patreon.

The Other Miss Bridgerton lands in reader hands on Tuesday! Here are eight other Bridgerton (and Rokesby) things to do in the meantime:
1. Listen to an audio clip from The Duke and I, the novel that introduced Bridgertons to the world.
2. Pre-order an autographed copy of The Other Miss Bridgerton in paperback or hardcover. Bonus: You’ll get two JQ Keepsakes: a Bridgerton Bookmark, and (for pre-orders) an All Aboard fridge magnet.
3. Check out the list of all JQ’s books in setting chronological order. Then, for kicks, re-sort alphabetically by hero. Because haven’t you always wanted to read a list of JQ’s books sorted alphabetically by hero?
4. Skim all eight story summaries for the Bridgerton Second Epilogues to make sure you didn’t miss one.
5. Pre-order your ebook of The Other Miss Bridgerton, and then roll your eyes when you find out you ordered it six months ago. (Or breathe a sigh of relief when you realize you didn’t order it six months ago; either way, it means you’ll have it zapped to your e-reader at the stroke of midnight on release day.)
6. Squee again over Netflix’s plans for The Bridgertons! (Bookmark that post. It will be updated as info is released/confirmed.)
7. Skim through all 13 Bridgerton FAQ — there’s bound to be stuff you didn’t know.
