    SPA Girls Podcast – EP448 – Changing From Frontlist to Backlist Focus with Maggie Dallen

    SPA Girls Podcast – EP448 – Changing From Frontlist to Backlist Focus with Maggie Dallen

    This week we talk to regency romance and young adult author Maggie Dallen, who tells us how she changed her mindset and her author business model, with huge success! Maggie is a prolific author who was writing up to twenty books a year, but she was reaching a point where she wanted to slow down and diversify her writing skills by learning script writing.



    She realised she needed to find a system that would take advantage of her extensive backlist, and allow her more time for her other writing interests. In this fascinating interview, Maggie talks us through how she did it, what the major challenges were, and how you can do the same thing! 



    Maggie was a delight to interview, and gave us so much useful advice - you're going to love this one!

    SPA Girls Podcast – EP447 – Overcome Doubts & Back Yourself!

    Doubts are the biggest creativity and success blocker. But it takes a strong person not to have them.



    No one said this was going to be easy, or everyone would be doing it. If you ask those that succeed in this business they will all tell you they’ve had knock backs. It’s about perseverance. It’s about holding on to your self belief and forging ahead.

Needs more than 5 stars

Everything, I mean, EVERYTHING you need to get started as a total newbie in indie publishing or level up an existing career. WITHOUT. OVERWHELM.

Well, some overwhelm is unavoidable, but the SPA girls will help you keep going

Love this show!

Listening to these ladies is like having a warm hug and a cuppa with four brilliant big sisters. Between them and their guests, they have seen and done it all, and they generously share tips and advice with the indie writing community. Thank you all very much for what you do!
