I’ve worked with over 200 authors so far, with backgrounds and topics ranging from internet marketing and personal development to life insurance and the right way to adopt a dog.
Here are a few favorite books I’ve coached, edited, or ghostwritten.
Connect - by Josh Turner (through Book in a Box)
How many times have you heard someone say, "it’s not what you know, it’s who you know"?
We all know the importance of relationships in creating and growing a business, and yet most of us don’t know exactly what to do about it. We go to networking events, meet associates for coffee, or maybe even email prospective clients, but it’s never quite enough.
In Connect, Josh Turner lays out a step-by-step process to meet and connect with the people that matter to your business at scale. The techniques contained in these pages will teach you to use new tools and marketing channels to build relationships without being confined by time.
Busting The Life Insurance Lies - by Kim Butler and Jack Burns
Whether you’re wondering if life insurance is right for you, wanting to understand how it can help you while you’re still alive, or even an insurance advisor yourself, this book will guide you to the answers you need to make the clearest, most informed decision—one you’ll feel good about for the rest of your life.
James Ranson was exactly the writer we needed. Not only did he provide high-quality writing, he also made special effort to understand life insurance well beyond surface-level knowledge. James walked the line between technical explanation and engaging, conversational tone perfectly, and included several touches of humor and culture that made the text not only highly accessible, but fun to read. And when it became clear that his first draft wasn't up to industry standards of detail, James worked with me and my chief content writer for three extra months to ensure that the final draft exceeded those standards while still remaining an appealing read. I couldn't have asked for a better writer for this job.

Profit Hacking shows you PRECISELY how to maximize every marketing activity you do from this day forward. How to maximize the value of each visitor, prospect, lead, customer, and client your business attracts (and how to get more of them).
How To Find Your Dream Dog - by Dixie Tenny
Bringing a new dog into the household should be one of life’s happiest events. The process always starts with excitement and high expectations. Too often, though, it ends in disappointment. The new puppy wakes everyone three times a night, gnaws on furniture, piddles everywhere, knocks the children down. The new adolescent dog is too wild. The new adult dog growls at your neighbors. And where did all this dog hair come from?
Most people spend hours researching a new mattress, days researching a new car, and weeks researching a new home or job. Yet for a new dog, a companion for the next 10-15 years, the most they do is visit the nearest shelter or pet shop and buy whatever looks cute and appealing. It’s no wonder they end up disappointed.
[This book] walks you step-by-step through the process of choosing the right type of dog for you—not only exploring the canine qualities that can determine your perfect puppy, adolescent, or adult dog, but also assessing your lifestyle to make sure you’re a good match for the dog, too.
The Awakened Woman's Guide to Everlasting Love - by Londin Angel Winters and Justin Patrick Pierce
Your Owner's Manual for Deeper Connection, Lifelong Partnership and Better Sex
In today’s disconnected, distracted world, it seems like deep love gets harder to maintain every day. We spend more time looking at screens than at each other, cycle through new partners every time the spark starts to fade, and wall away our feelings until we become strangers who share a house and kids. But underneath all this, our souls long for an unbreakable love which deepens over time and lovemaking that gets hotter, not cooler, inside a lifetime commitment.
This bond we yearn for is not impossible. It’s not even improbable. You can create it in your life right now—intimacy that opens both you and your partner to a divine awakening you could not create on your own, lovemaking that curls your toes, and a partnership where both people champion each other’s best interests, where even the difficult moments bring you closer together. This is sacred relationship, and it’s already within your reach.
It exists in these pages. If you are seeking a resource for attracting a sacred relationship, sustaining long-term passion, and deepening in authentic connection (whether you’re single or in a relationship), you're in the right place. The path within these pages will teach you how to have a long-term, sexy, passionate, deeply fulfilling relationship with a partner who is as excited to be there as you are. Written by both a man and a woman who have been living and teaching these principles for a decade, this book is an owner’s manual for intimacy, a map for loving at the deepest level, and an invitation into sacred practice where divine connection becomes part of everyday life.

James was the solution to all of my book problems. He understood my situation, shared my goal to create a high-quality masterpiece, and matched his expertise to my passion effortlessly. His blend of rigorous editing, inquisitiveness, professionalism, and humor made him a joy to work with, and his work added light-years of clarity, accessibility, and power to my book. I'm so grateful to have found him before I gave up on it.
Secular Buddhism: Eastern thought for Western minds - by Noah Rasheta
