Books Across America
is Mason's third film.
Where did it come from?
It all started with a book.
2084 was the first novel Mason released. He wanted it to succeed, so he promoted it online. Then he promoted it IRL.
An Amazon-Exclusive ...
A book tour
Mason promoted his novel to 50 independent bookstores in 50 days ... before realizing the stores couldn't sell the book. Only Amazon could. And yet, the booksellers were exceedingly supportive.
A film about indie bookstores
Now curious about the mission of indie bookstores, Mason took a road trip to 30 bookstores across the country to answer one question: why should we shop local? Click here to learn the answer in The Bookstour.
A film about author origin stories
Promoting his Amazon-exclusive novel to indie bookstores was not Mason's ticket to bestsellerdom. So what would be? He interviewed four successful authors about their origin stories to find out. Click here to watch the trailer for Story Road.
It all led to
Books Across America.
