get booked

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.

Rachael Ray attributes her phenomenal success to her understanding that without a book in print, her career would still be stuck in a rut. She explains that she was doing a local cooking broadcast, and spending her very small compensation to buy food for the show. She “knew” that without a book, her career would never get off the ground. She put her book together, released it, and suddenly began getting invitations to be on national television shows like Oprah. She got her own nationally televised show, then wrote another book!

review ford

“Working with Scottsdale Multimedia has been an easy process for the development of my book. The writer has truly made the difference in this biography and his writing style and research are exemplary. From the beginning of this project, his interview techniques, taped conversations and logical persistence of organizing a life story gives him the modern day edge of writing. To me, his writing is clear and concise and the story flows as each character/episode is developed. The writer conveys a direct balance of intrigue in each chapter and intensifies the story as the delivery of my grandfather’s life and his adventures unfold.

I highly recommend Scottsdale Multimedia – for excellent writing proficiency; follow up, revision after revision without hesitation, photo imaging assistance, and this list goes on and on-without any doubts. They have a unique talent and I extend my appreciation.” Lucas Ford, Jr., Author, An Ethical Physician.

An Ethical Physician is a true epic story of a physician who began his Nineteenth-Century life among the moneyed gentlemen of the old South, only to see his heritage stripped of all dignity and status. Earning his own way through medical school Dr. James G. Hopkins made his way in the reconstructed South as a family man, a beloved physician and a civic leader. Just as Dr. Hopkins had everything to live for—loving wife, devoted children, respect of his community, and a successful medical practice—his world was brought crashing down around him in a flashing moment. Barely escaping his beloved hometown, the Good Doctor became a hunted man with a high price on his head. Always seeking the opportunity to clear his name, Dr. Hopkins went on the lamb, taking up new identities and building more medical practices and successful personas than could be expected of any mortal man. He built and abandoned several fortunes, and families, always looking over his shoulder for Pinkerton men or a local Sheriff with retirement in mind. An Ethical Physician is a riveting journey through the Old West, the Hawaiian Islands and Untamed Mexico seen through the eyes of a medical man with restoration on his mind, and longing in his heart.

The course of a life meticulously planned and executed can be changed in the blink of an eye. This story documents the life of a doctor in the post-war South whose respectable life was derailed in an instant. Upon shooting a man whom he thought was trying to kill him, the doctor found himself under arrest in the town he and his family had helped build. When it became apparent that the cards were stacked against him, he decided to run, with the intent of returning as soon as he could clear his name. The author shares his grandfather’s journey, trying to avoid Pinkerton men and bounty hunters while dreaming of his wife and children. I was spellbound the entire time.

review skokos

Review: Here William Edward Skokos allows us a peek into his experiences for the key to his conservatism. He takes on the policies of both the left and the right as he provides a provocative and well informed explanation of the origins of these policies and what needs to be done in order to turn the tide and revitalize America. His belief and faith in the American people is the key element which he believes will ensure the continuation of the American dream. Return to Common Sense.

review richardson

“My book turned out exactly as I had planned and hoped for a very long time. I recommend your services to anyone with a book that needs a professional hand.” Denise Richardson, author of Give Me Back My Credit!

Review by Kevin Ross Peterson: “This is a wonderful book… as much as it is terrifyingly real… the credit issues and the unbridled power of the “Big Three” to randomly destroy any life they choose… It is a smooth read… A hard to put down tale that leaves you shaking your head and wondering if you’ll be next. As extreme as this may seem…it is merely a drop in the tremendous bucket of Credit lies, deception and hell that people go through… Great book.”

“Thank you for helping me ghostwrite my book.  Your writers were insightful and sensitive during the interview and research phase of my writing project, and professional and highly skilled during the writing and editing phase.” Denise Richardson

Nocera book review

Review by Grady Harp, Amazon.com Top 10 reviewer: “Roger Martin Nocera, MD has written a book that is destined to become a classic. In CELLS THAT HEAL US FROM CRADLE TO GRAVE he brings information to the public’s attention – both general public and health care delivers – that is of monumental importance. And though he and his honored cohorts would have us believe Einstein’s view `Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything’, another way of saying that major importance of the information shared here is not a discovery but a call to attention of a fact that has been present in nature but has not been appreciated or publicized or employed by scientists until now.

“The significance of Dr.Nocera’s book is as important to medical history as the 1796 work of Dr. Edward Jenner who `discovered’ or had insight to reveal nature’s human immune system: his invention of immunology by noting that smallpox could be prevented by vaccinating healthy people with cowpox scrapings from milkmaids began the revolution of immunizations. And 100 years later a similar insight provided Dr. Alexander Fleming to recognize that a mold found in nature had a DNA code that created a natural defense system to kill bacteria – and Penicillin was born in 1928, the first of the antibiotics that have subsequently saved countless human lives.

“What Dr.Nocera brings to our attention that the next `miracle’ in medicine is the fact that in the past decade Stem Cells have been studied as precursors to all cell types in the human body. These `Healing Cells’ (adult stem cells), easily harvested from the human body, can be injected intravenously, migrate to the area of the body `dis-eased’ and make normal healthy cells to replace the abnormal cells. The impact of this `insight’, proven by many studies to the satisfaction of the scientific community that it is a valid discovery, has the potential of altering Medicine in a manner as impactful and important as the discovery of immunization and antibiotics.

“Dr. Nocera writes in a inordinately readable fashion: his audience is the general public, but he wisely adds the medical information for physicians’ eyes in parenthetical asides. Reading this startling information by a gifted physician with the courage to place his insights before the historically skeptical medical community while alerting the public to this fact of nature cannot help but result in respect for the author and gratifying amazement to the reader to be witnessing the next major miracle in Medicine.

“CELLS THAT HEAL US contains chapters of well-documented studies and scientific data as well as a pertinent discussion of why this discovery is being ignored by the powers that be. In his words `The good medical news is this: a bright new era in health is right at the world’s medical science doorway, knocking, sometimes quite loudly. The bad medical news is that this knocking is largely unheard, and therefore unanswered.’ It is a recapitulation of the manner in which the scientific minds and public first judged the work of both Jenner and Fleming. His plea is that the FDA will quickly recognize the importance of Healing Cells and open this therapeutic door quickly
.
“CELLS THAT HEAL US is a wondrously fascinating body of knowledge: the manner in which this knowledge is shared by Dr. Nocera is as engrossing as reading a brilliant novel. This book will be important to the history of medicine: this book is phenomenally important to all of us now. The next Great Worldwide Medial Paradigm Shift has arrived. This book should be mandatory reading!” Grady Harp, February 11
