PURPOSE POWER by Alicia Bonner Ness to kick off ONBrand Books

Nashville, TN (March 12, 2019) – PURPOSE POWER, by Alicia Bonner Ness is available now in Hardcover, Paperback and Kindle formats on

PURPOSE POWER inspires action. Whether starting a movement, while building a mission-driven brand, or rebranding an organization with a storied history, this book will inspire new possibilities. The Heptagon Method, a seven-step framework outlines the process of taking big ideas from ideology to action and reveals how to motivate allies to become advocates for the cause. This book clarifies the strategic sequence of action required to catalyze a movement.

Infused with instructive elements from the author’s heartfelt life story, PURPOSE POWER illustrates the incredible capacity of narrative to shake advocates, volunteers, and donors out of apathy into action. Stories lead us into a new perspective to clearly see what matters–to become champions of higher purpose. PURPOSE POWER offers a much-needed message of hope–failures are only learning experiences on the path to success.

“Alicia, a community organizer and brand activator, uses personal stories of success and failure to motivate with purpose,” JuLee Brand-Publisher/W. Brand Publishing explains, “We were so inspired by the message of her book that we started a new imprint for purpose-driven projects such as hers. Alicia is a passionate force, influencer, and movement-creator. We are looking forward to the response and action that will stem from this book.”

Alicia will be co-facilitating “How to Connect Across Ideological Differences” along with Drisana Hughes, member of the Serve America Movement and Zach Wamp, former Tennessee Republican member of Congress, during the March 29th - 2:15 pm session of Unrig Summit Nashville.

W. Brand Publishing Releases First Book

Nashville, TN (February 12, 2019)–FACING THE ELEPHANTS, a new memoir released February 12, 2019, by first-time author Rebecca Black takes the reader on an emotional journey through health, relationships, childhood trauma, and elephants.

Her story starts as it appears to be ending, on the ER operating table–dying three times. Death is just the beginning of her health battles culminating with her diagnosis of having the BRCA gene. However, her physical health issues were only a part of her battle.

Health issues plagued Rebecca her adult life and compounded with bad romantic relationships and PTSD flashbacks from living through horrible childhood trauma. Her life was a roller coaster of health and emotional issues–she found the love of her life, only to be plagued again with the heaviness of life once more. When it seemed she would never be able to work a regular job again, she found a strong spiritual connection with a family of elephants while she volunteered at the zoo. It was the peace and love she felt through the attachment to this “family,” coupled with finding the right psychiatrist that has put her in a place of rebirth today.

JuLee Brand, Publisher of W. Brand Publishing’s debut book, adds, “Rebecca’s transparent, vivid storytelling of her trauma, health, and mental issues gives hope to others going through dark periods of their lives. She is a brave woman–a previvor of cancer, a survivor of childhood abuse. Her strength and warrior-like approach to life is an inspiration.”

W. Brand Publishing Signs Fourth Author

Nashville, TN (November 1, 2018)– Independent book publisher, W. Brand Publishing signed its fourth author since the company’s formation, August 7, 2018. Antonio Brinson will tell his story of trials and triumphs through award-winning editor and co-author, Katara Patton.

Brinson joins Alicia Bonner Ness, Rebecca Black, and Kari Wiseman to make up the current roster. All books are set for release during Q1 and Q2 of 2019. In addition, W. Brand Publishing is promoting two self-published authors with releases in early 2019.

“We knew the stories were out there and they needed to be told. So, we focused on writers with uplifting stories that personally connected to readers. We are blessed with the opportunity to bring their stories to the public,” expressed JuLee Brand/Publisher, W. Brand Publishing, regarding the company’s early growth.

The team, consisting of Brand, entrepreneur Marilyn Whetstone/COO, and former Hachette Book Group Digital Content Director Michele McKee/Marketing & Promotion Director is creating a niche in the independent publishing industry by utilizing all media available to deliver the story. “It’s no longer acceptable to only release a paperback and eBook,” McKee states, “Using social media, blogs, and podcasts allow us to reach people who may not consider themselves ‘readers’ but will benefit from the story.”  

W. Brand Publishing is currently accepting story submissions. Writers should make initial contact through the company website or Facebook page. Self-published authors needing assistance with production and promotion should connect the same way.
