Is Your Book for Business, Pleasure or a Movement?

Before you look for a publisher, write the first word in your journal, I have one question for you.  Is your book for business, pleasure or a movement?  Now, it may be your first book and you have many questions about the publishing process and what the book will look like when finished, but before you do that, determine your vision and goal for your book.  After 10 years of publishing, 40+ books written, 100+ authors coached and published, I know that this is the most important question to be answered.  Whether you sign a contract with a traditional publisher, vanity press or self-publish your book, you are the author and you are the visionary of your book.  No matter who you ask or pay to help you, you ultimately determine how far your book will reach.  Why?  Because readers are investing in you the author and indirectly in the publisher, printer or distributor.  Your name is on the front of the book.  The publisher’s name is inside or on the back.  You are the star of your own book business reality show.  So I ask again.  Is your book for business, pleasure or a movement?

If your book is for business, it should do three things. 

1. Your book should be about some aspect of your business or stand and give voice and credibility to your business and industry

2. Your book should be an additional product to your already existing products or services

3. Your book should be the foundational literary document from which your ideas, methods and opinions on your business are built.

If your book is for pleasure or about your passion, it should do two things. 

1. Your book should be about what you love.

2, Your book should be about what consumes your every day existence.

If your book is for a movement, it should do three things

1. Your book should be about what literally moves you.

2. Your book should move others to conversations, engagement and action.

For me, my books are for all three.  I want to help people create products and services that will increase their business profits.  I want to help people write about and publish what they love.  I know that I write and publish what I love.  I also want to write about and publish books that move people to action in their own writing, businesses and lives.  I want to leave a legacy in the book publishing world long after I am dead and gone.  So which is it?  Business, Pleasure or Movement.

VBD Author Spotlight: W. Mason Dunn

We are pleased to feature author W. Mason Dunn and her new release, A Family Dilemma.

“I am motivated by the ministry of reconciliation,” Dunn said, when asked about her motivation to write. “We are called into His service: “[God] reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us.” (2 Cor 5:18, 20). God has commissioned each of us to share with others His message of love and peace. I want to move people toward a reconciled relationship with God.

Further Dunn stated, “My life is a living testimony.  My stories are based on events in my life. I want readers to know that our Heavenly Father is a loving father and He cares about us and everything that happens to us. He loves us so much that He gave His only begotten son for us. I want readers to understand that whatever temptation they are faced with, it is not a new temptation and that God has already provided a way out.”


Title: A Family Dilemma

Genre: Christian Fiction

Release Day: October 16, 2017



Aretha Mills experienced a terrible humiliation as a teenager and is unable to move beyond the memory.

As a young adult, she finds reconciliation with her parents, a perfect job and a handsome new boyfriend.

But the clock is ticking, and every moment Aretha spends in bondage to shame and fear, means another moment closer to loosing the ones she loves.




“Family drama indeed – this is book three in the series, and it definitely captured me! It is packed with conflict, emotions, and family drama. The action just kept coming and the author delivered a powerful finale. I was on the edge of my seat pulling for Aretha. Download this to see what I mean.” Amazon Customer


The author, W. Mason Dunn, born in Bossier City, Louisiana, received her undergraduate degree from Texas College in Business Administration and earned a graduate degree in Public Administration from the University of Oklahoma. She is an established professional with over 22 years as a higher education experience for the military while traveling with her husband before he retired from the Marine Corps after 20 years of service. The breadth of her personal and professional experiences have contributed enormously to her fascinatingly inspirational writings.

Waletta has been married for 31 years to retired Marine, Donald Michael Dunn. She is the proud mother of two young, adult children, Michael Stewart Dunn and daughter, Ashley Elaine Dunn.

Mrs. Dunn participated in many writing and speech competitions in her younger years. She traveled her home state of Louisiana participating in numerous contests, winning many of them. One of her most memorable competitions was the “Voice of Democracy Contest”. Mrs. Dunn was originally interested in journalism until she took her first accounting class in college, which catapulted her career in a different direction. However, inspired by her award-winning sister, screen and play write, Judi Ann Mason (“Sister Act II; Back In The Habit”, “A Different World”, “I’ll Fly Away”), Mrs. Dunn never lost her love and passion of writing.
