A publisher built for today's business leader

Great leaders have unique perspectives to share. But traditional publishers are often too slow, too rigid, and too impersonal. We knew there must be a better way.

Ripples Media provides leaders, from startup founders to CMOs to non-profit directors, with the support to give them a better chance for their voice to be heard. We help turn ideas on leadership, innovation, and self-discovery into bestselling titles. Our process and community provides support every step of the way, while getting your book into the hands of meaningful audiences.

New Authors

KP Reddy, Founder and CEO, Shadow Ventures


The future is here, with AI ready to disrupt everything from finance to legal to entertainment. AI will change how virtually all companies do business by increasing operational efficiency, giving executives the tools to execute routine tasks, normally done by humans, with technology that’s far quicker and cheaper. 

KP Reddy, a civil engineer with extensive experience in AI and automation, writes, that the narrative that AI will displace entire industries isn’t quite accurate, though. Just as with most advances in technology, as some jobs are replaced, new ones will be created. While AI can handle routine tasks efficiently, intangible skills will become increasingly more valuable and sought after. In his new book Creating the Intangible Enterprise, Reddy proposes that uniquely human skills—creativity, emotional intelligence, critical thinking, adaptability, leadership, communication—will become even more valuable in a world where the transactional aspects of work are handled by technology.

Creating the Intangible Enterprise will be released in early 2024.

Amy Moudy Comeau, VP of Marketing, Emory Healthcare

As a young girl Amy always wanted to write a book, with many a handwritten story or story idea in the works. And then a global pandemic happened. It unexpectedly became the impetus for Amy to start writing again, and with it, she found her book. 

During the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic, Amy began writing weekly emails to her team every Friday – to encourage and uplift her suddenly virtual team through harrowing times. These emails became a habit as her team looked forward to her weekly reflections. And for Amy, they became part writing therapy and part ship's log. 

Amy’s weekly writing ritual to her team has continued for over three years and remains today. Her anthology will be published as a memoir about leading a health care marketing team through a global pandemic, and how it changed the world forever. One of Amy's goals is for people to see the pandemic through the eyes of a different kind of front-line worker—health care marketers and communicators.  

Her book will be published in the spring of 2024.

Joe Koufman is a natural connector who has brought together three married couples and fostered countless fruitful business relationships. In 2014, he transformed his passion for connecting people into founding Setup, a marketing matchmaker focused on helping marketers think through their ideal ecosystem of internal resources and external partners.

Driven by his unwavering passion for human connections, Joe embarked on the authorship journey, crafting his first book with the aim of unleashing the transformative potential of personal connections. His goal is to equip individuals with the essential tools for fostering deeper bonds with one another and facilitating impactful introductions for those in their network.

The book will be released in the spring of 2024.


Maggie DeCan, Executive Director, The Children's Development Academy

Regardless of your occupation, everyone wants to find a job that provides personal fulfillment along with economic opportunity. Striking that balance, however, is sometimes easier said than done.

Maggie DeCan, however, has experience doing just that. Less than a decade ago, she left a high-powered role in the corporate world to lead a local non-profit. In her book Humbled on Purpose, DeCan writes how balancing purpose and prosperity is critical to both personal growth and the betterment of our communities. Leaders should not feel the need to chase every last dollar available—nor should they forfeit a meaningful salary solely in the name of passion. 

The book will be released in the fall of 2024.

I couldn't have picked a better publishing partner for my first book. The Ripples team came alongside me, listened to my vision, and crafted a roadmap to make it a reality.

albrecht-headshot @2x

I published a book and it changed my life. I had 200 blog posts and no one was inviting me to speak on TV. Those opportunities were because of the book.


Adam Albrecht,

What Does Your Fortune Cookie Say?


Ripples helped fulfill my lifelong dream to publish a book. It has opened so many doors and I’ve been able to share my story through speaking and consulting.
