Updates to FAQs



I love getting mail from readers, but I rarely feel like I have time to respond personally to each one. But I thought I would address some commonly asked questions.

1. Movie news. So many readers would love to see Marianne or Kate’s story on the big screen. I don’t own the movie rights for either of my books, so I have no control over whether a movie gets made or who gets to write the screenplay or which actors will play the characters. The only news I have right now is that there is no news. No one has optioned the movie rights at this point. And that’s okay! I would love to see a movie version done RIGHT, and if that means it doesn’t happen immediately, so be it.


2. Translations of the books. My agent and a foreign rights agency have worked really hard to sell foreign translation rights to both of my books. Right now the Spanish edition of Edenbrooke is available online at Amazon.com, Kobo.com, iBookstore, Googleplay, Barnes&Noble. It is also available printed in Spanish bookshops as well as the publisher’s website, www.librosdeseda.com. So if you live in Spain, go find it! If you live anywhere else, find it online! And then please leave a review so others will know it’s a good story. 🙂  Up next: French, with Japanese and Slovene and Turkish and other languages to follow.

3. My next project. The question of the year has been, “Are you writing something else?” After taking a year off of writing to grow a really cute baby, I am itching to start a new story! I’m not ready to share details yet, but rest assured that I am working on something, and keep coming back here for more news. I will also be announcing some pre-Christmas book signings, so stay tuned!


4. My cute baby. Isn’t he a doll?

    I loved both books,and yes-they both would make a great movie 🙂 Baby is very cute! What is his name? I can relate about not having time to write-I have 4 children..oldest is in college! I just started writing my book;just the prologue.But, I have it simmering in my mind and the characters just won’t let me sleep! Hubby needs to fix my laptop!!
    Will be looking forward to read something new from you. In the meantime-enjoy that little one! Pretty soon,he will be 16 and eating you out of house and home 🙂
    Be blessed-

    I just finished Edenbrooke (again!) this afternoon. Both of your books are so much fun to read. I can’t wait to read whatever comes from you next, but goodness, that little guy you grew sure is adorable. TOTALLY worth the break. 🙂 I love your Blackmoore playlist; did you make a playlist for Edenbrooke?

    • Julianne Donaldson says:

      I don’t know if I did make a playlist for Edenbrooke! I wrote it years ago, before playlists accompanying books were popular. But I’ll try to put one together and post it on here soon. Thanks!

    Are any of the signings in the South East? Please come to Atlanta! And you’re baby is totally a doll. He’s so cute!

    • Julianne Donaldson says:

      I can’t travel much at this stage with my baby, so the signings this fall will all be in Utah, close to my home in Salt Lake. I would love to get out of the state at some point, though. Maybe next year!

      • Emily says:

        Thank goodness! I live in Utah!! I would absolutely LOVE to come to your signings!! 🙂 I’m reading Edenbrooke right now and can’t really contain any of my crazy emotions and I’ve been bawling and laughing and everything in between. I am enchanted by this book. No other novel has ever come close to the impact Marianne and Philip have on me. And I only started it Sunday night! Thank you for bringing up such an amazing story!!

  4. Vicki Kielsmeier says:

    I feel so bad that I missed you at Swiss Days!! Hopefully one day I will get to meet you. Have you thought of doing a southern Belle story. I’m from Georgia and this Belle would love a love story in that era.

  5. PJ says:

    I couldn’t wait after Edenbrooke to see what you would do next and you did not disappoint! Blackmoore was awesome. It gave me a gothic Jane Eyre vibe while Edenbrooke reminded me of Austen. You’re just getting better and better. Can’t wait to see how you will envision a “proper romance” next.

  6. Raquel says:

    I don’t exactly remember how I came across Edenbrook. Pinterest I think! It was my favorite (before that it was probably something from Julie Klaussen-who is an excellent author) until I read Blackmoor!!! I loved it! The characters were great! I will read them again and can’t wait for the next. Thanks for blogging on how you came about writing. I used to write poetry & since have written some, but have no desire to publish for any amount of money. I think I feel as you did when you shared your first chapter of your book. Anyhow I am writing a book-probably the same as you, I started but I needed the advice you’ve given & I will be using it soon! I can only hope to see my own ” proper romance ” published. I’ve never read erotica & have no desire. I love a great story that’s worth my time that my kids can pick up and read also! Thanks again for sharing your time and advice & have fun with your beautiful family!

  7. Lindsey says:

    I am such a fan of your novels. I can’t wait to read another one 🙂 do you have an estimated date of when your new project will be finished?

  8. Rebekah Cromer says:

    I am glad to hear you are working on your next book. I love both Edenbrooke and Blackmoore. Hve them both on my kindle and the audio versions to listen to on car trips. Plan on buying the hard copies as well to go in my library!

  9. Laura says:

    Very impressed with your abilities as an author (and a mom…your little one is adorable! ) I just read Blackmoore for book club and it was wonderfully fresh. I LOVE the writings of Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell and Charlotte Bronte. You are now among them on my list of favorite authors. Even my 18 year old daughter read Blackmoore and when she finished she ran into my bedroom crying happy tears. She wants to be a published writer as well so we hope to come to one of your book signings. She would love to meet you and so would I. Enjoy your time with your family which is the best way to spend time and we look forward to your new book in the future. We certainly agree, if someone does the movie it must be done right :- )

    I LOVE Edenbrooke! Just read it again for the fourth time! And I really can’t wait for you to write another one! I live in West Jordan, Utah and would love to come to your signing. Your baby is adorable! And as far as the movie is concerned I would rather it not become a movie unless they can do it RIGHT either. It is perfect in book form. That is where we connect with our imagination!

  11. Tess says:

    Hi Julianne! I’m a mum of 3, writing to you from NZ. This is the first time I’ve ever written to an author! Both of your books are my favourites :o) When I read Edenbrooke a gigantic grin would break out on my face, or I’d get goosebumps… I’ve read both a few times now! Just want to commend you on writing such witty, romantic, ‘clean’, beautiful books – that I’d be very happy for any of my 3 girls to read when they’re old enough. Congrats on your gorgeous baby and I just can’t wait for your next book!

  12. Becca says:

    Oh my goodness! Edenbrooke is my absolute favorite! Of all the romance novels I’ve read (and I’ve read many) it is the best! Somehow you have captured everything anyone could want in a love story. I loved Blackmore too, and my mom and I are just waiting for you to publish a new book! Your son is adorable and I hope to hear more from you soon!:)

    I am a Spanish reader (from Madrid). I read Edenbrooke last weekend and first thing I did Monday morning was buying Blackmoore. I’ve really really loved reading Edenbrooke, what a beautiful story! I just want to read it again and again! I have just started Blackmoore and I think I am going to love it too.

    I wanted to share with you that Edenbrooke in Spanish is very good translated as I have felt tons of emotions reading it. I have smiled, I have cried and even my cheeks were sometimes red reading the book in Spanish! THANKS for your work and I am waiting forward to continue reading your books, in Spanish too 🙂
