Interview with Sandy Sims

Why did you become a writer?
I had been writing more as a cathartic exercise than anything else as I had always written proposals in my role as the owner of advertising agency. I found that I had a message I wanted to pass on to people.

Tell us a bit about your book.
It is a book about self-discovery. There are many self-help books out there offering advice on how to manifest your dreams. However, I felt that people are most interested in the process when they hear of the author’s own experience. I write about consciously using manifestation models and then recording the results. The process was to observe the manifestation of smaller ideas and then to gradually raise the bar, taking on more risk each time.

What was it about Frank Lloyd Wright that inspired you to write this book?
Wright was a mystic and lived his life manifesting in the way that this book outlines. His famous quote,
“ The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.”
I had an idea to build a collection of Wright’s unbuilt designs in one location and with no experience, whatsoever, naively began to move in that direction and remarkable things happened. I wanted to pass that message on.

How will your book help readers?
I feel we are living in watershed times. The economic, social and political challenges are exceeding the capacities of the structural systems designed to solve them, not to mention climate changes. Technology is forcing last minute decision making to making us our brains differently. We have to learn to trust our intuition and use manifestation techniques with the same degree of confidence we have given to linear thinking.  I feel that the more people read about how others are doing this and recording their results the more confident readers become.

How are you promoting your book?
Like so many first time writers the traditional option of agent and publisher is for the most part closed unless one has celebrity status with a large platform. Having said this, the internet provides a truly viable opportunity. I have created a blog site and am  currently on a blog tour. 

Any advice for other writers?
I feel that if you enjoy writing then that is what you should do. The ability to post blogs is a fast and good way to both write and build an audience. If you are writing a non-fiction book, then you might consider writing the chapters as ezine articles which will give you recognition. Self-publishing and using a Kindle platform allows you to offer your product electronically at a very reasonable price.
Someone said to me that you will put as much effort into marketing what you have written as the writing of it. I feel this is true. 

Where can people find out more about you and your work?

Anything else you'd like to add?
Do what you like doing. The process has magic in it.
