* ''Literature/PaladinOfShadows'': Starting with ''Ghost'', a modern military fiction series focusing on Mike "Ghost" Harmon, a [[RetiredBadass former Navy SEAL]], and all-around AntiHero. The first book is a self-admitted [[AuthorAppeal author wank piece]] with a significant focus on BDSM (see [[http://hradzka.livejournal.com/194753.html "Oh John Ringo No!"]], of which [[http://hradzka.livejournal.com/194753.html?thread=760769#t760769 the man himself approves]]) that was originally not intended for publication, but between fan response to a snippet and the head of Creator/BaenBooks (at the time, Jim Baen, who has since passed away) insisting that it be printed, it was published for release to the public. Works later in the series (starting with ''Kildar''), however, tend more towards, as described elsewhere in the comments to the linked LiveJournal entry, "man builds stuff and gets lots of pussy".

* ''Literature/TroyRising'': NextSundayAD, [[WeComeInPeaceShootToKill nice aliens]] extend their PortalNetwork into Sol System. Two years later, UsefulNotes/{{NASA}} [[IWantMyJetpack has yet to get off its fat, subsidized ass and build an actual spaceship]]. A year after ''that'', while [[StrawCharacter stupid officials]] are still arguing over the portal's importance, bad aliens stroll in nonchalantly and [[VichyEarth conquer Earth]] in [[CurbStompBattle a single afternoon]]. But the bad guys never counted on "Tyler Vernon"... A ''literal'' SpiritualLicensee; Ringo was chatting with [[Webcomic/SchlockMercenary Howard Tayler]] about the FirstContact days of Schlock Mercenary, and Howard said that John was more than welcome to write that story[[note]]though the official ''Schlock Mercenary'' wiki says that the two aren't connected, as the two settings have drifted apart given a lack of communication between Messrs Tayler and Ringo[[/note]].

->John became a professional science fiction writer
->and since his publisher assured him that all science fiction authors became immensely successful,
->he was given the standard "rich and famous" contract.
->Somewhat confused by the fine print, he nonetheless signed in blood.

* ContestWinnerCameo: Not a contest per se, but Ringo offered spots in his list of readers for {{Redshirt}}ing or {{cameo}}s to those who purchased the now-discontinued [[MemeticMutation OH JOHN RINGO NO]] t-shirts, whose profits went to the Helen Bamberg Foundation.[[note]]The Foundation helps, among other people, women abused by the sex trade, which features prominently in several books of the ''Paladin Of Shadows'' series that spawned the OJRN meme.[[/note]]
* CreatorThumbprint: {{Cameo}}s, {{Tuckerization}}s, and other inclusions of fans and family as characters can be found his work, from his very first published novel, ''A Hymn Before Battle'', onwards.
