About the Book:

Title: IMAGINE THAT: PLAYING WITH THE POWER OF IMAGINATION
Author: Tamara Dorris
Publisher: Createspace
Pages: 190
Genre: Self-Help/Spiritual

BOOK BLURB:
From rock-solid science to centuries-old scripture, we’ve been told our thoughts and emotions matter, and may even be indicators of our future. In this book, Tamara Dorris shows you that the real key to navigating your way to a new reality rests in your almost-dormant imagination. She points out that we’re all using our imaginations anyway, but most of us are using them to conjure up the worst instead of designing the best.

With wit, humor, and sass Tamara shares how anyone can learn to use their imagination in a more productive, profitable, and effective way.

The second half of the book is a 33-Day Challenge, including daily lessons and journaling exercises to help solidify and apply the age-old, as well as scientifically new ideas presented in the first section of the book. Be prepared to have your mind a little bit blown, your “mean monkey” a little bit riled up, and start intentionally creating your life with excitement and intention!

Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life!  Now that your book has been published, we’d love to find out more about the process.  Can we begin by having you take us at the beginning?  When did you come up with the idea to write your book?

I’ve been obsessed with how neuroscience now supports metaphysics for years now, so I decided that there needed to be some sort of fusion book, you know, so both the science lovers and the law of attraction people could learn to get along better. Maybe have lunch or something.


Q: How hard was it to write a book like this and do you have any tips that you could pass on which would make the journey easier for other writers?

Of all my non-fiction books, I believe this to be my most authentic voice, which is a little bit sassy and snarky at time. My advice would be to find and use your real voice. Readers will feel it and if you’re lucky, stalk you on Facebook.

Q: Who is your publisher and how did you find them or did you self-publish?
CreateSpace. Yes, I’ve self-published for many years.

Q: Is there anything that surprised you about getting your first book published?
Well, that was 17 years ago, so I can’t really remember, but self publishing was a heck of a lot harder now. Today’s writers have so many advantages that I hope they take advantage of, and publishing is easier than ever.

Q: What other books are you working on and when will they be published?

I tend to switch back and forth between fiction and non-fiction. This is my 19th book, so it’s time to play in fiction again for awhile. I will say writing fiction is more painful and tedious, but I always love coming back to it. I have a comedy chick lit series and a spiritual mystery one too…I tend to stick to the same theme of “mind over matter” in all my books.

Q: What’s one fact about your book that would surprise people?

It’s the first of all my books I actually cuss a few time. Please don’t tell my grandmother.

Q: Finally, what message are you trying to get across with your book?

That your thoughts and emotions have all the power in the world. That anyone with a big vision and strong desire can achieve it. It’s really very simple to change a currently reality with the rock-hard science and age-old teachings if we simply follow the plan.
