It’s a known fact in the world of writers that if they don’t have a publicist to promote their book it ends up going into that big, empty hole that so many books fall into regardless of whether it’s a potential best-seller or not. Unlike best-selling authors who normally have a publicist to get their new book noticed, many new authors never get to find out if they have a best-seller because they have already exhausted all their funds publishing the book. It simply boils down to one thing: they can’t sell their book without a publicist and they can’t afford a publicist without selling their book – it becomes a frustrating, vicious circle! It’s simply a case of no promotion – no sales. Sadly, a lot of talent goes to waste and authors have to watch their dreams dry up along with their book. So do authors simply give up their dreams? Absolutely not! Thanks to this amazing new concept, introduced by two very talented companies, authors now have a greater chance than ever of fulfilling their dreams.
Ascot Media Group and Reliant Public Relations recently teamed up in a ground-breaking move that will provide authors with maximum publicity at one of the lowest rates in the industry by utilizing a new plan that goes way beyond being phenomenal - a plan that works equally for the author, the media, and these two companies - without breaking anyone’s bank! How did they accomplish this? Incorporating valuable input from the media, they came up with a unique idea that they call the ‘Author 333.’
The Author 333 sends attention-grabbing ‘teasers’ to the media about authors’ books, giving them just enough info to pique their interest and leave them wanting more…
This one-of-a-kind newsletter is then distributed to tens of thousands of media personnel directly and when the recipient sees something that catches his/her eye, they will have the ability to contact the author directly. No more having to go through a PR or advertising company to make contact – this innovative newsletter gives them a direct point-to-point link to each author! The middle man, the publicist, thankfully just left the building – along with their high price tab! This does not mean that Ascot Media Group and Reliant Public Relations are no longer providing publicists for authors; they are. CEO of Ascot Media, Trish Stevens, says “There will always be a need, or simply a desire, for utilizing a publicist for many authors that can fortunately afford them, and our Traditional PR Plans are also some of the lowest cost in the industry; they are result-driven and have high-success rates. The Author 333 just means that there is now an alternative for the many who cannot or do not wish to use one.” Monica Foster, CEO of Reliant Public Relations, adds, “To date, every plan Ascot and Reliant have ever implemented has proven to be successful and we expect the Author 333 to be the ‘one!’ There’s nothing else like it out there. We will run it February 1, 2011 through March 1, 2011 with just the first 333 authors applying.” Monica adds with a smile, “Yes, almost everything to do with this plan is around 333. Then as of May 1st, providing it has proven just as successful, which we believe it will, we will open up the flood gates for authors everywhere.”
Trish Stevens added, “We did the same with the Select-Advantage plan which is another highly successful plan for authors. These plans are not just ‘slapped’ together; they are worked on for months and tested before we ever release them to the public.”
Ascot Media Group and Reliant Public Relations (reliantpr.com), already well known for their close-knit teams that work around-the-clock to do whatever is necessary to help clients, believe by working together on the Author 333 means one thing – all authors will finally have a chance! And what does it cost to get that shot at the top without a publicist? You guessed it - only $333!
Authors across the globe are already amazed at the abilities exhibited by these two companies, and Ascot backs this up with many ‘full contact’ testimonials, showering them with accolades, that can be viewed at their site. Additionally, at ascotmedia.com, many authors can be viewed making appearances on national television!
So how can one PR firm charge thousands of dollars and yet these two PR firms together charge so little? Ascot’s Trish Stevens’, aptly sums it up: “Often, authors are just ordinary, hard-working people with a regular day job. It’s just not feasible to think they can afford a publicist. With the belief that companies should be able to find a way to cater to the individual budget of an author, Monica Foster, Reliant PR’s CEO, and I spent a great deal of time designing and implementing a plan that will work equally well for the author, the media, and for us. We firmly believe we have succeeded in giving authors the chance they deserve, and to us - that’s what it’s all about!”
