Às vezes você encontra o amor nos lugares mais inesperados… And sometimes you find it at the top of the hottest book list in Brazil!
Could this be because of the NETFLIX NEWS? Or is it all because JQ is hot in Brazil? Here at Team JQ we think that Because of Miss Bridgerton is just a great story–so of course Uma Dama Fora Dos Padrões, hit the top spot on Veja‘s fiction list. Veja is a weekly newsmagazine and one of the most influential outlets of the Brazilian printed media.
And what was that Netflix news? Surely you heard: The Bridgertons are coming to Netflix!
The Bridgertons are coming to Netflix! As reported in the New York Times:
“An adaptation of a group of lush romance novels set in Regency England — the Bridgerton Series, by Julia Quinn — that the “Scandal” veteran Chris Van Dusen will turn into a dramatic series.”

Articles also appeared in Deadline Hollywood, Shondaland, and Town & Country. (All articles are also easy to get to from JQ’s list of selected press.)
Team JQ will post more info as the news develops.
I have the best sisters. Older Sister created all my JQ graphics and designed this site. Younger Sister is a coding wiz and makes it all run smoothly, but Youngest Sister… Violet… she’s the comic illustrator. And over the last few years she’s come up with some really great JQ-inspired comics. They’re here on my website, and I’ve shared them on Facebook. So chances are, you’ve seen them.
Violet is active on Patreon, and every month she offers her Patrons a special bonus–a custom comic, drawn to coincide with a monthly theme: Creepy-Cute October, The Most Un-Romantic February… you get the picture. And now is the time I’m most glad my parents didn’t name me Gertrude, because check out the theme for July:

The Other Miss Bridgerton will now be released on November 20, 2018. This is four months later than originally planned, but JQ says she’d rather the book be good than done. TOMB (what an acronym!) is available for pre-order. You can even get it autographed!
What’s sooner than November 20? This weekend JQ will be a featured author at the Hawai’i Book & Music Festival (it’s a rough gig, but someone has to fill in the ranks). JQ has added her schedule for the event to her calendar. What’s after Honolulu for JQ? Bellevue, WA in October. As ever, JQ’s Events calendar has all the details.
The Audible editors just listed their Romance Essentials List: “50 books we believe are must-listens for romance fans,” and The Duke and I made the list! The review calls narrator Rosalyn Landor “the best Regency voice.” JQ couldn’t be more pleased! (Team JQ has listened to 12 JQ titles read by Ms. Landor, and heartily agrees!)
