If you’re wanted by the FBI, hiding out from your in-laws, or just simply desire to remain anonymous … DO NOT CALL ASCOT MEDIA GROUP! However, if you have a book and want the world to know then Trish and her merry band of publicists can put you on front pages in major media markets and make you a familiar face on the talk show circuit. I sensed there was something special about Ascot Media the first time I inquired about their services. Now I know what it is. They don’t use some arbitrary check box to satisfy themselves that they have earned their modest fee. As long as they are on the job for you, they don’t ease up, they don’t quit, and I doubt they even sleep. So DO NOT CALL ASCOT MEDIA GROUP … I want them all for myself!

I can’t believe how much publicity I have gotten from your program. I know you told me this would happen, but I couldn’t believe it. I have heard so many empty promises before, but this is AMAZING and full of truth! In just a couple day I have had over 35 media people contact me requesting my book, information, interviews, etc. I have even gotten us booked as regulars on a major radio station. Thank you so much!!!!!!!

The team at Ascot Media is the absolute best! I used their services to promote my three new books; The Tap, Burst This! Frank McKinney's Bubble-Proof Real Estate Strategies, and Dead Fred, Flying Lunchboxes, and the Good Luck Circle.

All represented entirely different genres, and Ascot approached each one with the same energy - always managing to reach top media outlets and getting more leads than I have seen from all prior PR firms.

I also used them for assisting in the marketing of my latest oceanfront property, Acqua Liana - a $22.9 million dollar home that has been billed as 'the greenest mansion in America,' as well as helping raise awareness for our non-profit organization Caring House Project Foundation that builds homes and a self-sustaining existence for poor and homeless families around the world.

The versatility of Ascot's team is evident by the diverse projects I have given them in our business dealings and how they have successfully handled them. They are never daunted by a project, but instead welcome the challenge and strive to get the best results possible. I would recommend Ascot Media and its results-oriented team to anyone wanting to promote their product, service or self.

Ascot Media has been the first PR company that we have worked with. I never expected to get the response to our book SOMETHING YOU FORGOT…ALONG THE WAY that we did. In one month we got over 80 media leads. These included requests from the likes of CNN, NBC, CBS Early Show, Fox News, Reader’s Digest, and Marie Claire, just to name a few. This lead to 7 radio interviews, with more in the pipeline, and 17 printed reviews, not including mentions on many websites.

Ascot Media is the second public relations company that I have used, and the difference between them and my first PR firm could not be more striking. In three months with my first PR firm (which was more expensive, by the way), I got two book reviews and about half a dozen radio interviews. In seven weeks with Ascot, I've had: a couple dozen radio interviews, half a dozen television interviews - including my first nationally syndicated TV spot, front page reviews on cnbc.com, foxbusiness.com, and Business Week, a review in the largest newspaper in Canada, multiple requests to write magazine articles, more leads and requests for interviews than there are time to do, and that's just seven weeks! No telling what will happen in the next several months.

Ascot has been quick to respond, always friendly, and infinitely more effective than my previous publicist. If there's any problem at all, it's that they've been so good at generating leads it's impossible to keep up! I couldn't be happier, and I have every expectation that you will feel the same way.

Ascot’s PR campaigns, simply put, are less expensive yet much more effective than any other plan I have known over the years. Ascot Media Group pre-sold 37,000 books prior to the release of The Shell Game. I highly recommend them! Steve Alten – NY Times best-selling author. www.stevealten.com

I am the Publisher at Cedar Fort, Inc. We have a backlist of 1700 titles and currently publish 120 new titles each year. We have been using Ascot Media Group since August of 2007. The ability of this group to key in on certain market segments is nothing short of fantastic and resulted in one of our authors getting onto the NY Times best-sellers list. Springville, UT Publisher – Lyle V. Mortimer

I was extremely pleased with the level of interest and the number of articles and interviews I gained. I would recommend any author interested in creating

Within weeks, we had interview requests from affiliates of all three major TV networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) plus Fox News. In the last three weeks alone, we’ve done 14 radio, TV and newspaper interviews, with our voices heard coast to coast in the U.S. and throughout Europe. We’ve also done 10 signings and lectures and had 31 requests for review copies. At one point last week, “Travel Within” was selling faster than over 99% of all titles available on Amazon.com. Ascot Media have exceeded our wildest dreams. Dave Cunningham - Co-Author, “Travel Within: The 7 Steps to Wisdom and Inner Peace”

Ascot Media has been the best choice I have made for promoting my book. I am very pleased with the amount of contacts received with each press release distribution. I have received countless leads from National and Local TV, Radio, and Magazine outlets which has truly benefited my book sales and established my mark as a reputable author. This really has been excellent exposure for me and my book which has led to several great opportunities.

Ascot Media staff have been everything that we have hoped for in promoting the titles and authors within our industry. They have been very instrumental in our viral marketing efforts that have culminated in our authors being booked on radio and TV from coast to coast. Through these appearances our sales have increased dramatically and we are excited at what the future holds for our relationship with Ascot Media. Timothy P. Schulte, Owner / Publisher - Variance Publishing

Any author can hire a publicist, but finding a publicist who manages to raise an already elevated level of enthusiasm is precious. More importantly, Ascot Media delivers. The icing on the cake is they make the entire process fun. With their energy and spirit, I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to be here. Sally Srok Friedes - Author, The New Jew: An Unexpected Conversion

Ascot Media has proven their worth over and over to me, with getting me on many radio interviews, newspaper reviews, and even recently on Fox and Friends. They are worth every penny and more.

After 11 fast-paced months with the Ascot Media Group, I find that not only am I well represented by the best in the business, but the experience is as fun and exciting as if I have my very own Jerry McGuire working hard to, “Show me the money!” Tom Williams – Author – Lost & Found

My client activity increased by 70% with a continued escalation in demand. I highly recommend Ascot Media Group for anyone interested and ready to support the substantial increase of attention you will receive due to their involvement with your endeavor."

My name is Bill Forstchen and I’m the author of over forty books. I am writing this after only a few weeks of working together with Ascot. I am deeply impressed. I find emails from Ascot staff time stamped at 3:00 AM setting up a potential interview. The press releases are hot and they know how to peg the right spot in the market. I think Ascot is a winner and they can make you a winner too. In closing, if you had to choose between trusting a publicist in your publisher's office who works for the corporation, or a publicist who works directly for you. . .who would you believe first? William Forstchen – NY Times best-selling author – One Second After

I highly recommend Ascot Media for all your publicity needs. We have been working with Ascot for a year now and the group has done a remarkable job for Jerry Audley Music. They have very high standards and are very thorough. Sabra Ferguson – Management - Jerry Audley Music

*****

Ascot Media have taken my novel, THE PORTOFINO DECEPTION, from the darkness of obscurity to the light of exposure, arranging innumerable press releases and internet blogs, media reviews and a series of national radio interviews and in-studio television appearances around the country. Anyone interested in promotion of a product, from a book to a political candidate, would be well served to contact the passionate and devoted group at Ascot. Jeffrey S. Stephens – Author / Attorney-at-Law

*****

I have not only been blessed with a super publicity group but with friends who embrace my passion and do everything they can to help me share my vision.
If you want a publicity company that will not only put their best foot forward but will stand behind you 150%, go to ASCOT Media. Stacy Gooch Anderson, Author of The Santa Letters
