When I’m buil…moreThe characters are all incredibly fun to write, because their voices are so different, but Sam and Nina usually need the most revisions. When I’m building a scene, I have to ask myself a few key questions—what the main character wants, what obstacles are in her way, and what she’s willing to do to achieve her goals. For Beatrice and Daphne, this is always clear. (Daphne’s chapters practically write themselves! What does she want? Prince Jefferson. What is she willing to do to win him? *Anything*)

Nina, however, is often confused about what she wants, and Sam tends to get in her own way (she’s her own greatest obstacle!) Their chapters can be slower to take shape, because their motivations are tricky to keep track of. That said, they both have really fun storylines in Majesty… with more forbidden love and a few surprises!(less)

Katharine McGee answered Chloe's question: Katharine McGee
I’m so hopeful that American Royals will become a movie or TV show! It would be amazing to see the Washington family and the American court depicted on-screen (plus, I keep imagining the costumes!) My LA agent is hard at work trying to make this happ See Full Answer
Katharine McGee answered Lizzie James's question: Katharine McGee
Right now American Royals is only two books, so the story concludes at the end of Majesty. I'm currently working on a new project that is in very early stages! But, I know better than to say a story is ever *truly* finished. I have some ideas of wher See Full Answer
American Royals by Katharine McGee
“She felt, for the first time in years, like herself. Not the public, painted-on Daphne that she showed the world, but the real seventeen-year-old girl she kept carefully hidden beneath.”

Even through her own heartbreak.”

“They say that before death, people’s lives flash before their eyes. But as the ground rushed ever faster toward her, the girl could think only of the past few hours, the path she’d taken that ended here. If only she hadn’t talked to him. If only she hadn’t been so foolish. If only she hadn’t gone up there in the first place.”
Katharine McGee, The Thousandth Floor

“And beneath her bare feet lay the biggest structure on earth, a whole world unto itself. How strange that there were millions of people below her at this very moment, eating, sleeping, dreaming, touching. Avery blinked, feeling suddenly and acutely alone. They were strangers, all of them, even the ones she knew. What did she care about them, or about herself, or about anything, really?”
Katharine McGee, The Thousandth Floor

“Leda was struck by how much Avery reminded her of Atlas. They weren’t related by blood, and yet they had the same white-hot intensity. When they turned the full force of their attention on you, it was as blinding as looking into the sun.”
Katharine McGee, The Thousandth Floor

“Her body was reacting instinctively to his nearness, like a plant that had been too long in the dark and was finally exposed to sunlight.”
Katharine McGee, The Thousandth Floor

“She nodded, breaking every promise to herself, loving him.”
Katharine McGee, The Thousandth Floor
