Rick Green“Webroots Media [a subdivision of Castle Media] was instrumental in taking me from a virtually unknown candidate to having the 4th largest online support of ALL Texas candidates and public servants.

Statewide candidates still tell me today that their online media teams could never figure out what our team was doing so successfully.”

– The Honorable Rick Green
Texas State Representative, 1999-2003 Candidate, Texas Supreme Court, 2010 

Mary DeMuth“Author Media helped me transfer my blog to my own server, painstakingly worked out the kinks, and gave me a practical, easy-to-use site. Within the first month of relaunching, my traffic went up 1000%.”
