In this week’s RSP I talk to Mimi Strong, bestselling author, who has sold over 500,000 books. Mimi started off writing young adult fiction, but when those sales declined, got into “naughty billionaire fiction” on a dare, which lead to massive success. We talk about why hopping genres works from a creative and business perspective! Show notes have all links to the mentions in todays show.
For this week’s RSP I have the pleasure of talking to Nick Stephenson. The author of the Leopold Blake books, and most recently, Supercharge Your Kindle Sales. Nick has recently tweaked some parts of his books to quadruple his sales, we talk about how he did that.
