What our clients are saying

Our clients are often new authors, who come to us with an idea and trust us to transform that idea into a book. Most of them have little knowledge about the writing or publishing process, and only with trepidation do they forge forward into the book authoring process. Scottsdale Multimedia has time proven expertise in writing books, and that is a rare commodity. Put your mind at ease and hire the best book writers and biographers available to write your book.

Your biography, memoir, business, inspirational or other book is important, and chances are, you have little or no experience writing a book or being published. Become an author, and get your book published. We have written many biographies, memoirs and other books, and have helped many of our clients to publish their books. Our clients are all anxious when the first call us, uncertain of what to expect during the writing and publishing process. When their project is completed they invariably thank us for our expertise and close attention to their needs, and for a successful authoring experience.

You need a Book if you want to get booked.

Who had heard of Dr. Oz before he wrote his first book? As with most celebrity doctors, chefs, psychologists, commentators, analysts, pundits, candidates and others who are able to land their own television shows and build their media empires, it all started with a book. If your career or business plans include a launch to the next level, you need a book.

Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? Neither . . . a Book does.

Rachael Ray knew that her career was stagnant at a local TV station where she was barely paid enough to cover the cost of food on her show, and that if she was ever going to take it to the next level, she needed a book. She did everything in her power to get a book written and released, and that became her “entree” into the world of national broadcast television.

The Greatest Gift

What gift could you give someone that would mean more than a biography or memoir would? Jewelry—travelcar they all pale in comparison to the heartfelt gift of recording a life well lived. Nothing conveys your admiration better than honoring someone you respect with a book about him or her. Spouseparent—company director who do you admire? Whose life would you like to honor in this highest form of respect?

The gift of recording a loved one’s life and having a book put into print is beyond comparison to any other gift you may have in mind. Nothing says “I admire you” more than honoring someone with a book. No matter the occasion – Christmas, birthday, Mother’s Day, Retirement, Anniversary – express your appreciation by commissioning Scottsdale Multimedia to write a book commemorating the life of that special person in your life. It is the perfect way to convey the message that you really wanted to do something spectacular this year.

Would the gift of a family history or corporate history, or a biography or memoir convey your sentiments to the receiver of your extraordinary gift? Your book gift is important, and chances are, you have little or no experience writing a book or being published. We have written many biographies, memoirs and other books, and have helped many of our clients to publish their books. Our clients are all anxious when the first call us, uncertain of what to expect during the writing and publishing process. When their project is completed they invariably thank us for our expertise and close attention to their needs, and for a successful authoring experience.

Motivational & Inspirational Books

Writing a book about your expertise and methodologies sets you apart from your competition, providing you with market positioning, brand recognition, authenticity and credibility that cannot be obtained in any other manner. Regardless of your area of expertise you will receive an immediate and sustained boost to your market perception, which nearly always translates into elevated lead generation, business inquiries and invitations to speak.

Your career will be positively affected when your book is released. If you stop and think about it for a moment, everyone who is considered a dominant figure in your profession has published a book. Those who have released books are generally the ones called on to speak at events, to give interviews, and to express opinions. Become the person whose comments are sought out and who gets booked to give presentations.  Become a published author.

Celebrity

Celebrities are those who have overcome the odds and risen to the top of their art, avocation, or profession. It isn’t easy to be the one who “makes it” when so many others have tried and failed. Resentments and misunderstandings can plague a celebrity despite numerous interviews and press releases that seek to set the record straight. Scandal mongers invest endless resources into muddying the waters of otherwise peaceful and happy lives.

Your story has been a long time in the making. No one put you where you are today. That’s something you earned for yourself. Even those in your inner circle don’t really know about the “early days” and the innumerable, seemingly insignificant decisions that led to your eventual success. It’s time to tell your story.

Whether you’ve reached the summit or are still conquering mountains, tell your story without equivocation, in your words and in context. Scottsdale Multimedia is the premier firm for those who have distinguished themselves and are now ready to tell their story.

With more than 20 years of writing and publishing experience, our clients enjoy the luxury of telling their story their way, in their words. Don’t leave your story to be told by others. History belongs to those who write it.
