Breakaway Media LLC is based in St Petersburg, FL. It was established in 2011 to fulfill the need to continue to produce and publish the quarterly Journal of Special Operations Medicine (JSOM). Breakaway Media (BAM) is owned by Michelle DuGuay Landers, Lt Col USAFR NC (Ret), the editor for the JSOM since its inception in 2000.
When the DoD cut its budget in 2011, the United States Special Operations Command experienced the effects and the JSOM, then its 11th year of publication, was one of the casualty’s of these cuts. Michelle established Breakaway Media, LLC as the new home for its feature publication and its annual Advanced Tactical Paramedic Protocols Handbook. For more information on these publications, see our Featured Products page.
Since then BAM has dramatically evolved, significantly enhancing marketing and sales efforts and meeting the increasingly complex text and clinical reference needs in the market. We are also working ahead of the technological curve by making the journals available as a digital flip-book that can be accessed and viewed on tablets and smartphones, as well as computers.
The publisher works with each client to ensure that the right team is chosen to meet each client’s unique needs. Our editorial staff have worked with the major publishers, to include Elsevier and Wiley, on projects in the fields of emergency medicine, nursing, orthopedic medicine, surgery, genetics, psychiatry, and all other aspects of healthcare. In addition, our copyeditors are proficient in the areas of philosophy, information technology including Big Data, advertising, and many other fields of the arts or social sciences. Our staff can provide expert copyediting, fact checking, and copy writing, depending on the needs of each client. Our production/graphics and design experts can create and design new products, from brochures to pamphlets or handbooks and periodicals to diverse visual information. With our proven proficiency in publishing programs and Photoshop, we will create your publication and/or supporting marketing and advertising materials. In addition, BAM maintains quality control of the prepress and postpress processes to ensure the final product results are in the most professional media possible.
