  1. I hope this isn’t inappropriate; we’ve interacted a bit on Twitter and I’m curious about the fiction-editing world (freelance or otherwise). I don’t want to waste your time, but if you’d be willing to chat briefly via email I would greatly appreciate it. In any case, thank you for your interesting posts and your marvelous, marvelous writing!

  2. Hi KJ,
    I saw this pre-order title on kobo.com for Aug 11, 2015. Is this yours, any more details on it?
    A Fashionable Indulgence: A Society of Gentlemen Novel

    • It certainly is. That’s book 1 of the Regency trilogy I’ve sold to Loveswept. A dandy helping a young Radical turned gentleman fit into polite society. Blurb and cover are underway!

  3. Hi KJ I am a recent fan of your flight of magpies series having found it via the short story Remnant. I love your books and I was just wondering if you have a newsletter or anything so I can keep up with new releases and such. Thanks!

    • I don’t. I should, shouldn’t I? I will try to get that organised. If you’re on Twitter or Facebook i’m there (@kj_charles), and here. And, uh, Jackdaw releases tomorrow of course… 🙂 Thank you for asking, I really appreciate it!

  4. Hi KJ,
    Just following up on A Fashionable Indulgence- is it still on? I asked because a week or so ago I saw a book with pretty much the same cover and thought -geez, did KJ changed her mind or is this a coincidence? anyway let me know. I have the pre-ordered version on my wish list at ARe. If it’s still on, will it come out in epub as well?

  5. Hi! I’m a huge fan of your books and they’re always an insta-buy for me :). I really loved Think of England, and I was wondering if you had any plans in the future to revisit Daniel and Archie? I think their story was so special and I’d love to see more of them.

    • Oh, thank you! That’s lovely to know. I do have a sequel planned but it won’t be till next summer, for contractual reasons. But it’s definitely in the pipeline.
