Book Ideas & Proposals

I help authors with great titles, powerful ideas, and proposals that sell.

Josh helped me take a big, complex idea and simplify it into one document that provided a sort of North Star throughout the writing process. He provided the steady hand I needed to go from excited but frenetic to focused and prolific.

Writing & Ghostwriting

I am the author of 6 books, 2 for hire. I specialize in books and articles about marketing or technology.

Josh challenges, shapes, and elevates your ideas. He is an engaging and entertaining writer and wordsmith. We might have eventually published our book without him, but I have no doubt that it would have been less compelling, less cohesive, and less enjoyable.

Workshops & Speeches

I inspire staff and event audiences to write more clearly

Josh explained the psychology that tempts people to write badly; he discussed the impact of bullshit in writing; and he managed to establish agreement among the group that we were all going to strive and improve.
