BRIDGERTON: The Official Podcast, Now Playing

March 5, 2021

More BRIDGERTON! Go behind the scenes with the Official Bridgerton Podcast! Episode 1 published last week, Episode 2 just dropped. Several more episodes are planned — all about season 1 of the hit show, based on The Duke and I.

In Episode 1, “Locating Bridgerton,” showrunner Chris Van Dusen describes wanting to create, “the most gorgeous, rich aspirational English garden anybody’s ever seen.”

Episode 2, “The Reason for the Season,” explores the marriage market. FUN! Featuring cast and crew — and JQ herself, thankyouverymuch — the Official Bridgerton Podcast talks about how the show was created, discusses the storyline, music, the costumes and sets, the historical context of the era and so much more! JQ couldn’t be more excited about it.

Want even more backstory? There is much right here on to explore including an essay about how JQ created Lady Whistledown, Behind the Scenes for all her books, and mugs!

“Aren’t they splendid?” (<— TeamJQ thinks that is what Lady Whistledown would say!)

Impt Fine Print: Bridgerton: The Official Podcast is a production of Shondaland Audio in partnership with iHeartRadio. Listen and subscribe at Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.

New from JQ: Inside the Story for First Comes Scandal

January 12, 2021

First Comes Scandal, a Bridgerton prequel in which Anthony and Benedict Bridgerton appear as spirited little boys, and readers are treated to Violet and Edmund as young parents, was named one of Amazon’s top books for 2020! It was even featured on a massive billboard near New York’s Penn Station.

First Comes Scandal tops 2020

New from JQ: her Inside the Story for First Comes Scandal is brand new on Find out more about baby Colin (who steals much limelight), about Cat-Head (who causes much mayhem), and about the medical school Nicholas attends (which has a history JQ loved diving into).

Read the beginning of First Comes Scandal, and if you haven’t read this delicious Bridgerton prequel, download it or order it today!

Finally, if you’ve been trying to get your hands on paper versions of JQ’s books, rest assured, her publisher is printing them as fast as they can. JQ recommends ordering from University Book Store in Seattle. They’ll be autographed (and personalized, if you want!), and because UBS is JQ’s official bookstore, they have priority and will get more copies as soon as they’re available.
