Michele Sammons, author of Intuitive Companion



Today, we’d like you to meet Michele Sammons. She’s the author of 2 beautiful books: The Little Book of Big Knowing and Intuitive Companion.


Ever since childhood, Michele dreamed of becoming an author. While the process seemed daunting at first, she soon realized, “Actually, this isn’t as complicated as I thought.”


She has officially caught “Book Fever” and, rumor has it, there’s a 3rd book on the way.

Enjoy Michele’s story. And please join us in congratulating her on this momentous achievement.


Michele: you wrote not one but two books! Congratulations on getting it done. How does it feel to be an author?


Thank you! Being an author feels amaaaazing!


The feeling is a unique mixture of pride (“Wow! I can’t believe I did it!”), humility (“Really, little ole me, an author?”), and gratitude (for all the people, muses, and love that went into making my book).


Honestly, when I received the very first copy of my book in the mail, and I was holding it in my hands with my name on the cover, it was nothing short of a dream coming true.


Tell everyone about your latest book.



Intuition manifests in various ways, but at its core, it is one true thing—communication from the eternal part of you, the loving Inner Guru You. But when your everyday life feels loud and distracting, it’s challenging to tune into your intuition.


With this book, my goal is to help you quiet the outside chatter so you can receive messages from your inner self much more clearly.


You decided to utilize our Book Production Services. What was your favorite part of the process?


Your team immediately put me at ease.


They’re true professionals and knew how to take my little book from words on a page to a hold-in-your-hands book.


As a new author who had no clue how to publish a book, the Get It Done team made it feel doable. Knowing it is doable is the biggest hurdle to overcome.


They take away the confusion by holding your hand and walking you through the publishing process.


Many writers struggle with doubt, and feel like, “I’m nobody special,” “I’m not a good writer,” “I don’t have anything ‘amazing’ to say.” Do you have any words of advice for people who feel this way?


I had those same ugly thoughts running through my head, too.


Self-doubt is a dream killer. It tries to keep us safe by keeping us small, but it gets awfully claustrophobic when you live in that small place.


My advice is to write your book for you. Write it as part of your personal evolution. Write it as part of your healing or understanding or making sense of this world or this life.


Write it for you first. Then, if it helps someone else along the way, that’s fantastic. That’s a bonus.


But any creative endeavor is for the creator. It’s about honoring your gifts, value, and uniqueness. It’s you first. My advice may sound selfish, but it’s true. The act of creating is for the pleasure and growth of the creator.


Once you release a book into the world, it creates a ripple effect. Your book could lead to a speaking engagement, new clients, or something completely unexpected. We call this “Book Magic.” The serendipitous magic that happens once you put your work into the world. Has any Book Magic happened for you?


I had oodles of book magic with my first book: podcasts, magazine interviews, beautiful book reviews, and more. I’m sure Intuitive Companion will create its own whirlwind of magic, too.


But the thing that meant the most to me was when people would tell me how much the book helped them. How it gave them peace when they were going through a tough time, or how they would pick up new insights each time they read it, or how they would start their day by reading an excerpt.


Y’all, that praise has nothing to do with me or how good a writer I am. That is the Universe working its magic. Using me as a conduit to deliver a message that someone else is ready to hear.


I send out each of my books with a prayer that they will fly away and land where they are most wanted. Then, I release it to the Universe, trusting that whoever is asking for the message will receive it.


Any other words of advice for aspiring authors?


I know from personal experience that when you get out of your own way by not doubting yourself, you naturally become the bright shining light you truly are.


You came to shine. And, if you’re reading this, you probably like to shine through ideas, writing, and books.


So, go ahead and shine your light.


It shows others that it’s okay to shine theirs, too.


Thank you for being willing to share your book journey, Michele.
