The Recognized Experts

Scottsdale Multimedia’s writing services have been recognized in the national media as “groundbreaking,” being featured on the Hallmark Channel and in Robb Report and Jetset magazines. Do you have a great idea for a book, but are unsure how to transform it into reality? Don’t worry that you’re not a professional writer. We are. Scottsdale Multimedia will write your book, in your voice, from your viewpoint. We understand your book’s importance to you and know how to write it in an interesting way that will keep your audience riveted to the page.

Here is what Robb Report magamize recently write about Scottsdale Multimedia in its Collection Checkout page:

Write On
Lack of time or even lack of writing ability doesn’t have to prevent you from being an author. If you have a story to tell, about your life or your company’s history, a ghostwriting service such as Scottsdale Multimedia can help you put the words on the page—for posterity or to promote your business or your political career. “Whether you’re a politician or a company CEO, having a book that tells your story in your voice and in context makes all the sense in the world,” says John Bingham, Scottsdale Multimedia’s vice president of author development. (The company refers to its clients as authors.)

Bingham describes how his company has a system in place to ensure that the final text reads as though the author wrote it. “More than one writer begins each project,” he says, “and then we evaluate their work to see which writer does the best job of capturing the author’s voice. And that’s the writer who gets the assignment.”

Bingham says that a typical biography usually requires about 48 hours of taped interviews, conducted at the Scottsdale offices or at the author’s home, and that a 250-page final manuscript usually will be ready to go to a publisher, agent, or printer two months after the interviews are completed.

Non-fiction books

We write most genres of non-fiction books including science, medicine, law, urban studies, crime, history, religion, business, justice system, sociology, health, and a number of others. Call us for a free consultation to see if we have the expertise to write your book.

At Scottsdale Multimedia we preserve lives and histories through writing. Our clients wish to preserve various aspects of their lives when they come to us, ranging from childhood and family memories to personal and professional successes. Some desire to record the trials and successes of businesses or artistic endeavors. To this end, we provide a variety of writing services tailored specifically to the particular needs of the client—Standard Biographies and Memoirs for personal or family use, business biographies, and celebrity biographies. Our biography writing service was recently featured in Robb Report magazine and on the Hallmark Channel and our methods were touted as groundbreaking.

Biographies, Memoirs and Family Histories are often quite personal, and we are generally commissioned to write them about the client or a relative of the client to preserve the details of a life well lived. The events that make up a life are often of paramount importance to the person’s family, friends and descendants and should not be lost to time and fading memories. We will write your biography, memoir or other non-fiction book within 12 weeks.

Business Biographies and Corporate Histories are often commissioned by businesses to preserve the details and events of their progress and the lives of those who gave them existence and vitality. We are often asked to write the history of a business and its founders, or the biography of one or more of its officers or directors, or another significant person in the organization. The preservation and telling of a corporate history is paramount to creating an adequate appreciation for the people and decisions that made it what it is at the present, and to provide a roadmap of the direction the business is heading. A book about a company or a key executive can be central to establishing heightened credibility in any field or industry, and can become the source of greater leads, sales and revenues. This is especially true in the case of professionals who enjoy the regard of their peers, and who are recognized in their profession as having achieved much more than most. A book can share valued information and lessons across a profession and garner the respect of fellow practitioners.

Businesses, corporations, partnerships and other organizations, and those who found and lead them, which have overcome the odds and risen to the top of their industry or profession should have a print book written and distributed. Writing a book about your company’s history, products, services or methodologies will set you apart from your competition, providing you with market positioning, brand recognition, authenticity and credibility that cannot be obtained in any other manner. You will receive an immediate and sustained boost to your market perception, which nearly always translates into elevated lead generation and business inquiries.

Motivational and Inspirational Books. As a leader in the self-help, success and motivational speaking and writing profession you well understand that a print book with your name and picture on the cover and your insights within the pages is an absolute must to establish you as a luminary in your field. Imagine for a moment how you and your organization will be perceived when your printed book is presented to your industry and potential clients. Whatever the subject or methodology you are sharing, putting your own book into the hands of prospective clients and attendees will result in increased awareness and interest, immediately elevating your profile.

Ghost Writers

Do you need someone to write your book for you? Don’t worry, because if you desire to present your book as authored solely by you, no one will ever know that you utilized the services of a ghostwriter. Your name goes on your book, and you will receive sole authoring credit if that is your preference.

At Scottsdale Multimedia we’ve learned that our clients have already given a lot of thought to their writing projects before they contact us. Therefore, we listen very carefully as they explain what it is they wish to convey through the writing they hire us to provide. We ask our clients to consider carefully who their intended audience is, so that we may tailor the writing to speak directly to that audience. We record our interviews so that as we perform the writing we can capture the “voice” of the client in the writing. By understanding the voice of our client and the viewpoint of the intended audience we are able to help minds meet at a point of understanding where speaker and listener are united and the message is delivered.

A book can share valued information and lessons across a profession and garner the respect of fellow practitioners.

Celebrity Biographies are those commissioned to recount the events leading to one’s meteoric rise to the top of a profession or art. In all professions there are a few who make it to the top, often in the face of adversity and resistance, and it is generally expected that they will share the story of how they found the personal strength to survive, and even thrive, where so many others failed. Our founding writer, J.L. Thompson, generally writes our celebrity biographies.

Many of our clients have spent years and untold resources attempting to establish themselves as leaders and authorities. Few things can catapult their public perception and authenticity like a print book. Clients, patrons, potential customers, and even competitors instantly view our clients in a new light when their book is distributed. Whatever the company or executive asserts is suddenly viewed with a greater weight of authority, and a celebrity aura surrounds the person or organization featured in a book. Media and industry news sources often seek out the opinions and commentaries of those who are generally considered “experts” in the field, as established by the existence of their book. Isn’t it time you had a book?

Would a book with your picture and name on it elevate your professional status, and make you the new benchmark in your field? Would you get the offers, the invitations to speak, and the interviews if you were the one with a book? Numerous professionals have expressed their firm faith that it was the publication of their book that launched their national careers. Many of those actually set out to elevate their career status by seeking out a writing firm to write their book, and making the release of their book an indispensable component of an overall public relations strategy.

These books provide our clients with important organizational and cultural ambiance as well as the heightened status that naturally flows from being perceived as the industry leader and innovator.

Seminar Speaking. The top seminar speaking coach in the world tells every one of his students that they need a book. You need a book with your picture and name on the cover to tell the world that you are the go-to person, the professional. If you want to be asked to speak on radio and television programs about subjects that include your area of expertise, then you need a book to establish your credentials. In academia we hear the words “Publish or Perish” spoken with resounding clarity and finality, and for good reason.

It’s All About Your Credibility—Your “Authenticity”

We understand credibility. Some have it, and some don’t. What’s the difference? Perception.

Some people or organizations can lose credibility in an instant, usually through the dissemination of adverse information. Most, however, exist within a cloud of anonymity and the resultant ambivalence toward them and their product or service. Others have no authenticity. Anyone in today’s marketplace can invest a little money and put up a website that makes him look like a seasoned fixture in the industry. He can rent a nice office and buy some hardwood furnishings and place an ad on television.

People have become leery of everyone because of this ability. A printed book with your name and picture on it tells everyone that you are the go-to-guy, the benchmark company, the one who pioneered the field and is still standing tall in it.

A book can also help you establish “context” for misunderstood events. It sometimes becomes necessary to set the record straight. We help you tell your story in a persuasive manner, clearing up misconceptions that may have previously plagued an organization, executive or product. History, after all, belongs to those who write it..

Don’t let your life be lost to time

You have lived a unique life, filled with decisions and adversities that no one else can understand unless you tell your story in a way that makes it clear to others. We sometimes have difficulty saying what we would really like to say, especially to children and others. It can often be difficult to say what you want or how you really feel. Offering unsolicited advice can be harder. Now you can pass on valuable advice and lessons learned without imposing. Children and others are honored to receive a copy of your book and they truly understand the message of your life as they share its important events with you in its pages.

To preserve your own history, that of a loved one or of someone you admire in a book is the ultimate tribute to a life well lived and the best gift you can possibly give.

If you fail to pass on what you’ve accomplished or learned, what will be your legacy? As your loved ones age important memories will fade and eventually be lost forever. Don’t let this happen.

Although we write celebrity biographies, you don’t need to be famous to preserve your life in a book. A life well lived is worthy of preservation in a book.

Whether you’re writing a book about your own life or that of a loved one, preserving the record of your life is very important, and we are experts at helping you do that.

Publishing Forum

Scottsdale Multimedia is pleased to offer this forum for writers of all kinds to discuss matters relating to publishing. As every aspiring writer can attest, there are many manuscripts being written each year, but few of them are transformed into printed books. We assist our clients through both the writing process and the publishing process.

This forum is dedicated to those who wish to discuss the obstacles in the publishing industry that seem at times to be placed in the new writer’s path with the object of limiting the field to established authors. Indeed, due to the volume of non-meritorious manuscripts flooding publishers, they lack the appropriate resources to adequately consider every query or submission.

This has resulted in the establishment of barriers, placed to reduce submissions to just those who have become industry “insiders.” By learning the industry protocols all meritorious manuscripts can receive a fair evaluation and opportunity to be published.

Share your industry insider tips in this forum, or ask your questions, and Scottsdale Multimedia or other authors will be pleased to respond with helpful information.
