SPA Girls Podcast – EP215 – Taking Risks and Being Brave

EIf you're anything like the rest of us in the SPA, you're quite happy in your writing cave. You don't really want to leave the comfort of your keyboard. But this episode is all about why you really should take risks, be brave, and learn how to say yes to some of the really scary things in the self publishing industry. We're just recently back from the wonderful Romance Author Mastermind conference put on by Skye Warren, so we use examples from information we learned at this amazing event to help us illustrate our points for this podcast.

SPA Girls Podcast – EP214 – Interview with Lindsay Buroker

EI (Trudi Jaye) was VERY EXCITED to get to interview super-successful fantasy author and fellow podcaster Lindsay Buroker at 20BooksVegas, and (OMG!!) she didn't disappoint. Lindsay's doing really well in the genres of Fantasy, Sci-Fi Romance, Fantasy Romance, and is about to publish a new Urban Fantasy series next year - so she talks about how she makes writing in multiple genres work so well for her career, how and why she switches between fantasy to sci-fi and, of course, how she's so productive. Even if you're not like me and a total fangirl, this is a must-listen episode from a super-smart self-publishing author.

SPA Girls Podcast – EP212 – Writing Great Characters

EWe all love it when we're reading and we fall in love with a character. Not just in the book boyfriend way - although that's cool too - but in a isn't-she-so-great-I-wish-I-could-be-just-like-her-or-maybe-just-her-best-friend way. As an author, how do you make that happen for your readers? That's what we're talking about this week in the SPA. What makes a great character? How do we make them so memorable that our readers keep coming back for more? What do you need to know about them before you start? And how do you bring them to life on the page? Join us as we dissect everything you might ever need to know about writing great characters!

SPA Girls Podcast – EP211 – Self Care Isn’t Selfish

EIf you don’t take care of yourself, odds are no one else will. So what does it take to make sure you’re firing on all cylinders? We’ve all got our own take on self-care and yet there are plenty of similarities. This episode we talk about the ways that we take care of ourselves, and what you can do to make sure you're doing the same!

SPA Girls Podcast – EP210 – Slow & Steady to Six Figures with Serenity Woods

ESerenity Woods is a New Zealand self-publishing superstar with more than 70 books published (both traditionally and indie). She's a USA Today bestselling author of sexy contemporary romances, most of which are set in the sub-tropical Northland of New Zealand, where she lives.

SPA Girls Podcast – EP209 – Editing with Anne Victory

EConfused about the editing process? Today we talk with talented editor Anne Victory, founder of Victory Editing. Anne has always been a stickler for grammar, and at every job she was “volunteered” (or volun-told) to either write or proofread everything from menus to game manuals to advertising copy. That business writing and editing experience came in handy when she started to work in fiction. She enjoys reading, and polishing the written word. Common wisdom says do what you love and you’ll live a long and happy life. With her background in English literature, grammar, and library science, it was a fairly easy decision to work with authors. We discuss what it takes to work with an editor. What you need to think about when you are editing your manuscript and much more.

SPA Girls Podcast – EP208 – Writing to Market Versus Writing To Trend

EWhat does 'writing to trend' mean? Isn't it just the same as 'writing to market'? In the SPA, we say NO, they're not the same...and here's why: basically, Shar told us so.:) In this episode we explore the two terms, look at the differences between them, what they both mean for you as an author, and how you can use writing to market and writing to trend to help your writing career. If you've ever wondered if writing to market was for you, or thought you'd spotted a trend early, this is the episode for you!
