John Mason wrote two very good books that I recommend you read: “An Enemy Called Average” and “Conquering An Enemy Called Average”. I learned from these books: ‘Know your limits, then ignore them.’ ‘The most unprofitable item ever manufactured is an excuse.’ ‘Don’t sit back and take what comes. Go after what you want.’ (excerpt from her book, A Leader in the Making).

After twenty years in book publishing there are few people I know that have as good a feel for books as John Mason. John knows books, he understands issues, and he has a sense about what will make a book sell and how to craft and promote a title. He is a man of integrity and a lot of fun to work with. I have sought John’s advice many times and found him willing and wise.

I cannot say enough good about John Mason. He goes over and above to offer the best coaching and advice out there. When I worked with Mr. Mason, I felt confident that any advice I received was for the best interest of the book and to see it reach its full potential. I knew he wasn’t just doing a job, but he really believed in me and did everything he could to see it accomplished. So grateful for his gift of writing and coaching. I would recommend his coaching services to anyone looking to take their book to another level.

Few are those who both enhance your life and impact your world. One such person is publisher, writing coach, speaker and best-selling author John Mason.
As a former college professor, I was well aware of the mechanics of writing from an academic perspective. My problem was I did not know how to tell a story! John’s coaching helped me discover how to captivate readers with insightful narratives while capturing them with relevant prose. I was challenged to not merely communicate facts, but to tell a story in a way that would command a significant connection with readers.
For over a decade and through numerous book projects, John has encouraged me to think like a writer. Truthfully, learning this process has changed my publishing life. The difference John’s coaching can make is the difference between a best-selling book, and a book that is never read.
John is a great person to have in your corner. He is intelligent, insightful, and such a joy to work with. He’s never pushy or too busy or preoccupied when you need him. And, when working together, you’ll discover this wonderful give-and-take . . . this remarkable rhythm between coach and author that both energizes and encourages you to offer your best effort. I am so grateful for his Godly wisdom and his publishing acumen produced by decades of experience in the literary world. Get ready for one of the greatest experiences you’ll ever have!
If you want a book coach who holds your hand and praises your every word, John Mason is not your guy. However, if you don’t mind being challenged and are willing to dedicate yourself to reaching your potential as a writer, John will—to insert one of his best-selling book titles—help you defeat that Enemy Called Average! You will accomplish more than you thought was possible, while enjoying the ride of a lifetime!

John has been a wonderful coach with true “Insight”! Coming from a position of true strength, combining his years of corporate leadership and private success, practicing what he preaches, there is no one else I would ever trust in this industry.

It is with immense gratitude and thanksgiving that I respectfully and joyfully submit my personal endorsement of John Mason’s author coaching services, his wise counsel, and thank God for his genuine friendship. I have known John since 2002 when I submitted my first manuscript of Turn the Heart to him for his consideration. My relationship with John, and Michelle, has grown into a true friendship that is held dear and near to my heart.
For any aspiring author desiring to see their writing dreams come into reality, I wholeheartedly recommend that these aspiring authors look no further than John Mason for a coach. John’s knowledge of the publishing industry, his insights into what is happening in the industry and his wisdom have proven accurate and invaluable to me time-and-again over the past 13 years. There were times when I didn’t necessarily “like” what John told me, but I trusted him and followed his advice. In the long run, John’s counsel was on-target and yielded results for our book and ministry.
John believed in our message at a time when no one else would give me the time of day. John’s quality team molded our manuscript into a book that has greatly impacted the world and seen countless relationships reconciled. I can confidently state that God used John Mason to develop our book into a tool that God has used to benefit numerous families. John encouraged me to “stay the course” and not give up on my dream.
Lastly, I consider John Mason a friend and fellow minister. His integrity and character are without question in my mind. I trusted him with my most-priced possession—my book idea—and he helped turn it into a reality. Our message and ministry has subsequently grown as a result of my affiliation with John Mason and I could never thank him enough. Only eternity will reveal to him how many families were reconciled because he believed in an unknown author from Arkansas and a message called Turn the Heart. I’m confident the Lord will tell John, “Well done…”.
— Wayne Smith, Minister, Author of “Turn the Heart”, and founder/president of Turn the Heart Ministries. Branson, MO.
After a horrible near-drowning experience, I had to go back to square one and rebuild my faith. I journaled about what I was learning and soon felt led to write a book about it. I had a pile of journal entries and a heap of passion, but I needed help knowing how to combine the two. My decision to get coaching from John Mason was one of the best book decisions I made. He not only provided encouragement but also helped with practical tips dealing with titles, the introduction, general chapter/section flow, and the conclusion. I somewhat expected an accomplished author of best-sellers to be a bit out of touch with the needs of beginners, but his ability to relate proved me wrong. I am deeply grateful for Mr. Mason’s coaching and thrilled with the end result. I have referred several people to him and will continue to do so in the future.
— Mark E. Donnelly, Author of “Rude Awakening: What If Everything You Thought Was Right Was Wrong?”
John Mason is full of wisdom and mindful how to share this in bite-sized chunks so people can see it, act on it, and profit from it immediately. He genuinely cares about people’s needs and seems to have an answer for just about any challenge standing between you and success.
— Jack Hollenbeck. Broken Arrow, OK.
In my 25+ years of pastoral care I have found few itinerant ministers I would endorse without equivocation — John Mason is one. John is an outstanding communicator and champion of the everyday man or woman. His speaking style is engaging, entertaining, and meaningful. Without fail, people leave John’s sessions inspired to live purposeful lives. This is one speaker you will want to have back again and again. I highly recommend him!

I highly recommend the teaching and writings of John Mason. They are packed with life-changing one-liners; solid gold nuggets of practical and spiritual wisdom for effective living. His chapters are refreshingly short; every sentence is a gem, so read them carefully. They are profoundly simple and simplicity is what’s missing from many people’s complicated lives.
— Pastor Paul Scanlon, Abundant Life Church, UK.
Just finished your book, “You’re Born An Original, Don’t Die A Copy” – Excellent! Your book imparts the missing ingredient from other books on the market – Motivation. It energized me. Currents flowed as I read each paragraph. I predict it will become a favorite of achievers throughout the world.

Next to the Bible, “An Enemy Called Average” is my favorite book of all time! I keep it in my briefcase to refer to it. I’ve read it at least 15 times and learn something new and motivating each time. John L. Mason outdid himself with this one! It is da bomb! If you read this book, take heed, and if it doesn’t make a significant difference in your life… then something is wrong! I’ve told anyone who would listen about it. Peace & Happy Reading… Rock On!

It is my honor and privilege to share what Insight International and Insight Publishing has done for me! They are the reason I was able to fulfill my dream of writing my first book from A-Z.
John Mason is a genius! His insight as a renowned author and publisher was invaluable to me. Just when I thought my manuscript was finished, I realized that it was just the beginning. His expertise challenged me to dig deep within myself to not only finish my book, but to tell a story that people would want to read.
Insight has the best editors on the planet! The attention to every single detail, patience, and commitment to excellence were beyond anything I ever expected. I am truly grateful for their assistance in taking my words and making sure they said exactly what I meant them to say.

I cannot thank Insight enough for making this whole experience so successful and unforgettable for me! I have learned so much and am grateful for the opportunity to work with each member of the Insight International and Insight Publishing team!
