Formula Podcast

Your weekly dose of inspiration and education

The SPF Podcast provides weekly inspiration and education to writers at all stages of their careers. We feature interviews with million-selling indie authors, breakout stars from traditional publishing, industry insiders and tech geniuses who show you how to put the incredible tools at our disposal to their best use. There are also frequent Masterclass episodes from me where I deep-dive into a particular topic, from building a mailing list to the very latest in social media advertising techniques, and everything else in between. Our aim is always the same: provide a ton of value in exchange for an hour of your time.
