I want to take YEARS off your learning curve!

Hello! I’m John David Mann,

I’ve written and published over 40 books, both fiction and nonfiction, from thrillers and parables to memoirs and business books. My books have sold over 3 million copies in 38 languages and won multiple awards, including two Axiom awards, a Nautilus award, an Innovation Gold Medal from Taiwan, a Living Now Evergreen Medal for “positive global impact,” and a Barry nomination. Four of my titles have been New York Times bestsellers, and five others have hit other national bestseller lists, such as USA Today, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, LA Times, Publishers Weekly, and the American Booksellers Association.
But here’s the thing: I never went to college. I have no degrees. As a writer, I’m mostly self-taught. I didn’t start out a New York Times bestselling author. I became one over decades of learning the hard way, through trial and error. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, suffered setbacks and heartaches.
I did all that so you don’t have to.
In this program, I’ll cut years off your learning curve.
I started Writing Mastery Mentorship for two reasons. The first, speaking frankly, is selfish. I’ve noticed that the more I teach and mentor, the more I learn. Which means, when I help you become a better writer, it makes me a better writer, too.
And the second reason? I have this fundamental belief that the world needs your book. Everyone’s life experience is different, so everyone’s perspective is unique. Nobody can write what you write. Nobody.
But simply getting your book written and pushed through the publishing pipeline is not enough. Because I’ve seen too many books (especially self-published books) start out with fantastic ideas, but arrive at the marketplace without having first been finished to anywhere near their full potential. And here’s the saddest part: Most of those books sink without a ripple. It’s as if they never even existed.
That’s a tragedy — and I don’t want it to happen to you.
To have maximum impact, to make its true mark on the world, your book needs to be as powerful, as authentic, as masterful as it can possibly be.
That’s why I created Writing Mastery Mentorship.

What our members are saying...

“Hearing from hundreds of readers about how my words have made a major difference in their lives has been incredibly fulfilling. Writing Mastery Mentorship has given me the tools I needed to sharpen my craft to a razor’s edge, and now I’m more excited than ever about writing my next book!”

Jeff C. West
Two-time Axiom Award–winning author

"Before joining Writing Mastery Mentorship I would write and write, but my story was going nowhere. I had a billion loose ends that I didn’t know how to tie up. Now, thanks to all the information and strategies John has shared about the outlining and drafting process, all those pieces are coming together."

Erin Moore
English professor

"I’ve wanted to write novels since I was 6 years old, but I kept running into a brick wall with every story idea I worked on. Now that I’m working with John, I'm just finishing up my first novel — and I’m enjoying the actual process of writing every day far more than I ever have before."

Zossima Granger
Communications specialist

“Before joining Writing Mastery Mentorship I would experience long, parched stretches with no creative juices flowing. The book just wasn’t growing. Now that has completely shifted, and my book is coming to life.”

Kathi Laughman
Executive coach and business strategist

"One of the best things about this program is that I feel totally supported. Anytime I have any questions about anything at all, I know I can get the answers I need."

Russell Mariani
Health educator and public speaker

"With my tech/computer background, I tend to express myself through technical data. Writing Mastery Mentorship helped me find the more personal voice my writing needed."
