Get your JQ comics here!

June 26, 2018

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:

Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Other Things

May 23, 2018

By this time, you’ve probably heard about the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). I don’t have any ad trackers on my site, but I do have a few subscriptions readers can use to stay connected: this Site News feed and my JQ Newsletter. Each does different things. Neither list is ever shared.

I have been re-permissioning my newsletter list all month, to be doubly sure everyone explicitly consents to giving me their information. Huge gratitude to everyone who has clicked on that link in their newsletter. If you haven’t seen these newsletters, please check your spam folder, or just go ahead and resubscribe if that’s easier. Thanks!

I’ve have also updated my privacy policy and I want to take a moment to remind you of my ongoing commitment to keeping you informed about how stores and uses the information we collect, including how we use Cookies, (if you are in the EU you are seeing a robust consent interface — I hope you will opt-in for the fullest experience).

Cookies are integral to so many parts of running this site. From making sure all my pretty fonts show up to the Facebook feed on my home page and so much more… Cookies. They make the internet go ’round.

Cookies of the chocolate chip variety are not part of my site — but in honor of the occasion, there is a giant one on a wee plate in front of me as I type this. Or rather, half of a giant cookie. Yum!

New Publication Date for The Other Miss Bridgerton

May 2, 2018

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.
