TLS #84: Behind The Scenes of “The Royal We” with Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

TheLivelyShowwithTheFugGirls

Today is Royal We Day!

As I’ve been sharing lately on TLS and on IG, I have become obsessed with the popular new fiction book, The Royal We.

The Royal We is a national bestselling book loosely based on the lives of Prince William and Princess Kate if Kate happened to be an American exchange student named Rebecca (Bex) Porter.

It. Is. SO. Good.

We’re talking with the authors, Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks (also the bloggers behind the popular fashion comedy blog, Go Fug Yourself), about how they wrote the book together, what research went into the epic plot, and how their blog led to their careers as fiction authors.

This episode is perfect for current Royal We fans, potential Royal We readers, or anyone looking to learn how two writers co-authored a 450 page novel together.

Today on the Lively Show, I’m speaking with Jessica Turner of the blog, The Mom Creative, and author of The Fringe Hours.

As a busy wife, mom (of three little ones), and blogger with a full-time job, Jessica is often asked how she makes time for self care and several passions amidst her busy schedule.
