From the WilliamMorrow/Avon press release:

JQ: “Taking Bridgerton from book to screen was fascinating for me to watch, and it’s such an exciting challenge for me to take it in the other direction, this time crafting Shonda’s brilliant vision into a novel,” said Quinn. “I’m especially thrilled to have the opportunity to write about Queen Charlotte, who was not in the original novels. Her character —and Golda Rosheuvel’s brilliant portrayal of her— was a tour de force, and I think readers will love getting a chance to know her more deeply.”

Shonda: “Queen Charlotte has been such a moving character to write and now having the opportunity to work with Julia to adapt this story into a book is such an exciting opportunity,” said Rhimes. “I can’t wait for fans of this universe to read the story of a character that has resonated so deeply with our audience.”

WHEN WILL THE BOOK RELEASE? No date has been set yet, though WilliamMorrow/Avon stated in the press release: “the book will be timed to the release of the series on Netflix.” Nor has a title been announced. JQ promises: as soon as she knows, you’ll know.

Julia Quinn talks about her new book that has inside jokes for Bridgerton readers

JQ talks about the inspiration behind Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron, a graphic novel which is “a madcap romantic adventure complete with talking pigeons, a kind of inside joke for readers of the Bridgerton books.” It comes out on May 10, and is a collaboration with her late younger sister Violet Charles, a cartoonist.

Last summer Quinn’s sister and their father, Stephen Lewis Cotler, were killed by a drunk driver.

QUINN: “[This book] is a thing of joy to talk about because [Violet] was so, so funny, and it’s all her. She had the most absurd sense of humor, and it’s all there in the book. I feel like my last gift to her is to bring this out into the world with as much excitement and fanfare that I can…”
