From Flop to Self-Pub Global Superstar with Scarlett St. Clair, #1 NYT and International Bestselling Author

+ Finding YOUR truth and holding onto your ambition

Hello, Protagonists!

My podcast guest today is romantasy author Scarlett St. Clair, who has sold millions of copies of her books worldwide and is a #1 New York Times and international bestseller. We first met in France at le Festival du Livre de Paris (aka Paris Book Festival), where I got to witness firsthand the magnitude of her international fame.

But that’s not the reason I invited her here today. I chose Scarlett for you because she is someone who is humble yet doesn’t shy away from her ambition. She laughs easily, shares her experiences freely, and is just a joy to spend time with. I honestly wish we lived closer to each other so we could hang out all the time.

Today we talk about:

  • How she rose from a flop to become a global superstar in self-publishing, then later switched over to a traditional publisher

  • Why “No” just means “Yes, but in a different way”

  • Her unorthodox way of writing books

  • Nurturing a genuine community of readers and fans, and much more!

I hope you enjoy the show!1
