have worked with the Ascot team on and off for at least 12 years now, using
them to promote several of my books (see www.stevealten.com).
I’ve tried other PR firms with big promises between times, but always returned
to Ascot—realizing that they are, without a doubt, the best PR firm out there.
Hands down, they are the real-deal!
hesitate using them. They have a great reputation worldwide with authors,
publishers and the media.
I was referred to Trish Stevens for marketing my first book, Fighting Parkinson’s…and Winning. Trish immediately was responsive to my needs. Within a few days of getting started with Ascot Media Group, my first press release went out. It was a professionally drafted press release that expressed the core of my book. I received 14 media leads the first day, including requests for radio interviews and people who wanted to read my book for review.
Throughout the media campaign, I received over 50 media leads, had many radio interviews, and have received professional reviews of my book. Some of the media outlet leads have included ABC radio, a couple of world-wide radio stations, and journal editors from publications at a few large universities.
Trish and Ascot Media Group exceeded my exceptions by delivering very solid results on my PR campaign. Ascot Media Group has my highest recommendation. They know their business well, are easy to work with, and they are extremely responsive to their clients.
“Being a new published author, I wasn’t sure what to expect from a PR/media firm. When Trish Stevens reached out and immediately set up an introductory call, I knew I was in great hands. She took the time to walk me through the entire process and then immediately followed up with a number of invaluable resources. I have been so pleased with the quality and number of leads from the initial press-release. Trish and her team are truly a delight to work with-so much so- I’ve renewed my contract with Ascot media”
Ascot has been terrific to work with, and they do get results.
I have used a few different PR firms. Many are a rabbit hole of promises and false hopes. Ascot is the real deal. They did a great job with my first book. They secured numerous high-end endorsements, over 50 reviews, 4 TV interviews and multiple radio and pod-cast interviews. At one point, I had too many interviews! Trish is sincere and they all work hard. I just signed up with two more books with them, and the results are even better. I am happy with their results, and I do recommend them.

Just a short endorsement of Ascot which did a great job of getting two books of mine, Work and Wealth in Scripture and Cleared for Landing: On Leading a Christian Life, some excellent exposure among book reviewers, some television and radio spots, and, in sum, they really do deliver what they promise. I enjoyed the professional and personal exchanges with the staff at Ascot and recommend them as people who indeed do what they say they can and will do.

Ascot Media, notably with Trish and Kimberly, provides a heavy weight one-two punch for promoting authors. They don’t waste time and improved exposure of my book by 500% as well as found interviews as early as the very day I signed a contract with them. In performing essential publicist tasks for me, their work has helped to propel my book, “Love and Terror in the Middle East” to world class status, through mainstream TV, radio interviews, as well as reviews. That has happened also due to their follow-up promotional efforts, etc. during my world author tours (visiting at least 36 US states, Montreal, Canada, and other regions). They are absolutely relentless in their promotional efforts and are very diligent in returning communications (usually that same day and even the same hour). Finally, Ascot Media has several very reasonable packages, and Trish, its owner, stretches her already very flexible business practices to craft a custom-made package for customers and works with them very, very closely to assure her promotional efforts will be very successful. And they always are!!

Ascot Media was my first foray into PR for promoting my book, and I am very happy with the choice! The Ascot Media team delivered on their promises as I was able to get great exposure for my book through numerous radio interviews, blog posts, and reviews. In addition, the team was a pleasure to work with and very responsive to my questions and supportive of my individual needs. I highly recommend Ascot Media!
