Bloomington, IND (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), and Cygnus Business Media today announced the launch of Responder Media, the first and only book publishing and media production company for public-safety personnel. Established as a strategic partnership between the indie publishing world leader and the public safety trade media leader, Responder Media now offers the men and women of police, fire and emergency medical departments the ability to finally share the exciting stories, personal histories and traditions that define their lives and line of work.
Public safety personnel who have written a manuscript or plan to write one now have access to the world’s best assisted self-publishing services, enabling them to create, market and sell professional-quality hard- and softcover books and e-books. Whether it’s compelling fiction, real-life nonfiction or informative guides providing expert advice, Responder Media can get any book in front of the right audience.
Responder Media offers unique additional services for those individuals who are compelled to share their stories but may not be interested in becoming authors. These services include:
- Personal Histories – Responder Media’s Tribute Book and Video offerings are the best way to memorialize the life of an individual. Responder Media offers interview, editorial and production services to create a timeless keepsake that can be cherished by family and friends.
- Group Histories – With Responder Media’s group interview options, now it’s easy to capture the legacy, traditions and camaraderie of an entire unit or department. DVDs and collector’s books make great private memoirs or fundraising tools.
- Book-2-Screen Services – Responder Media can assist in developing a treatment to present to various studios. This service also includes guidance on submission for film or TV development consideration.
“We understood that to maximize the audience and impact of Responder Media, we needed to offer more than just traditional publishing services,” said James Capo, director of digital business development, Cygnus Business Media. “It was important to us that everyone in the public safety field have the opportunity to share and document their stories.
