J&R Creative Media, LLC was founded in April 2010 by best friends-turned-business partners, Jessica Massa & Rebecca Wiegand Coale - aka, Jess & Becky.
Our flagship project is THE GAGGLE, which features the book, The Gaggle: How to Find Love in the Post-Dating World, authored by Jessica with editing by Rebecca and published by Simon & Schuster in June 2012. The paperback was released on February 5, 2013. The book is based on Jessica's year-long travels across America, where she conducted extensive interviews with over 100 young men and women about their love lives. To explore our modern, post-dating romantic landscape day-to-day, we founded the acclaimed blog, WTF Is Up With My Love Life?! which we re-launched in November 2012 as The-Gaggle.com. The book and site have been covered extensively in the press (full press list HERE).
In recent news, we optioned the screenplay, Classic Love Story by Andrea Bartz of the Stuff Hipsters Hate Tumblr blog and book. Rebecca contributed a piece, with editing by Jessica, to the just-published iBook anthology, VIXOTICA: Sexy Short Stories by the Best-Selling Erotica Authors.
We support each other as business partners and co-producers as well as collaborators on each other's creative endeavors and have a variety of multimedia projects in the works.
