Autographed for the Holidays?

December 3, 2023

What could be better than a Signed-by-JQ gift? It’s not too late! But shipping realities being what they are, TeamJQ has some information and dates to keep in mind, and a few ideas to help make your JQ-gifting a holiday reality.

 JQ’s TIMING: If you’ve been following JQ on her socials, you know she’s currently on holiday with family through December 17. She’s planning to go to the bookstore the day after her return. So please order by December 17.

PERSONALIZED ORDERS: As ever, JQ is happy to personalize books (please see step 3 in JQ’s HOW TO ORDER section on this site’s autographed page), but personalized orders won’t ship until after December 18 (and be sure to order by December 17).

 SIGNED BY JQ, BUT NOT PERSONALIZED? “Quinn Central” as they call it at University Bookstore, is currently bursting with books, games, puzzles, and tea tins that JQ pre-signed before she left on her trip. If you don’t want/need your order personalized, place your order, and if your selection is still in stock, the bookstore will ship right away.

SHIPPING: Whether you order personalized or not, we recommend you select 2-day shipping. Even so, the bookstore cannot guarantee a Christmas delivery (and for sure not a Hanukkah delivery) even with 2-day shipping. Please plan accordingly.

IN THE SEATTLE AREA? YES! You can pick up your order and bypass all this shipping nonsense. Select “Pickup in Store” before you Add to Cart. If you want your order personalized, be sure to order by December 17.

NOTE TO ELF: Worried your order won’t make it in time for your holiday celebration? Why not print out the image of the Signed-by-JQ gift you have ordered, then write out that it’s in the mail, and wrap the printout. Voila! Problem solved. (For those who haven’t printed out an image before without printing the whole page, simply right-click on the book cover and select Open Image in New Tab and then print. Easy-peasy!)

Happy December!

Veterans Day Giveaway…

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).

~JQ en Español: a whole page devoted to obtaining Spanish language translations of JQ’s books here in the U.S. And bonus: so many are available to be autographed!

~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.

Nice Press!
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

~Good Day Seattle: a four-minute video interview where Seattle morning host Abby Acone “fangirls” over JQ and JQ explains how Queen Charlotte was written based on the show, but is a “proper novel.”

~Queen Charlotte and Bridgerton have very different origin stories by Karin Tanabe at The Washington Post (Note: This article requires subscription or a free account to read.)

And if you are interested in a deep dive, JuliaQuinn.com has an archive of articles about and interviews of JQ!

The Queen Arrives in Bookstores! Chapter One is now Posted!

May 9, 2023

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.

For the first time online, you can read Chapter One from Queen Charlotte. Then order your copy and keep reading. But wait — what’s the buzz you’ve been hearing about the hardcover’s book jacket?

THE COVER: It’s reversible! One book jacket, two covers. Get the scoop from the authors themselves…

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.
