DO NOT CALL ASCOT MEDIA GROUP … I want them all for myself!

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 couldn’t be happier, and I have every expectation that you will feel the same way

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,, 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.

Thank you for your fantastic PR efforts on my behalf

I’ve been meaning to write for ages to thank you for your fantastic PR efforts on my behalf in the marketing of my book ‘Emotional Intelligence: Journey to the Centre of Your Self’ published by O-Books. You put me in touch with some wonderful people and I was extremely pleased with the level of interest and the number of articles and interviews I gained. I’m sure that your activity went a long way towards the level of sales in the U.S. and the profile I achieved on Amazon. I would recommend any author interested in creating a market for their work in America to use you.

On a personal note, I would just like to thank you for your untiring work and congratulate you on the fact that you don’t appear to need sleep – I wish you could bottle it!

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you again on subsequent books.

Best wishes

I worked for months to promote my book

I’m a first-time author. I have been published twice in academic journals related to my profession, but just recently had my first book published on a personal topic that I’m very passionate about. I worked for months to promote my book, but it wasn’t until my publisher suggested I work with Ascot Media that my book finally grew wings and took off. Thanks to Ascot Media, within three short months, I have been on numerous radio interviews, including two nationally syndicated shows. I have my first television appearance next week on San Diego Living and then KTLA television in LA. Next month I’ll be in NY doing another television show and a nationally syndicated radio show. Thank you Ascot Media! I couldn’t be more thrilled with your results! I highly recommend Ascot Media to anyone wishing to promote their book, concepts or ideas.
