Company Name: MASCOT BOOKS
Company Location(s): Herndon, Virginia
Description: OUR STORY

With a single self-published children's book about a collegiate mascot, Naren Aryal co-founded Mascot Books in 2003. After meeting publishing success, he was more than happy to give up his career as a corporate attorney, diving head first into the dynamic world of books. That's how we got our start and that's the story behind our name. Over the years, the company has expanded its list of genres and has established itself as one of America's fastest growing and respected independent publishing houses.


We are a full service book publishing company that works closely with independent authors in every phase of writing/editorial, book production, book marketing, and book distribution. Our roster includes bestselling authors who have previously traditionally published, first time authors, and authors at various levels in between.

Mascot publishes fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, and children's titles.

What separates Mascot is our hands-on approach to publishing. We work closely with each author in all phases of the publishing process. Mascot authors benefit from our industry experience, connections, and our commitment to keep up with the latest trends in the ever-evolving world of publishing.


Mascot does not offer preset publishing packages, as we've yet to come across two identical projects. Instead, we evaluate an author's content and publishing goals, and if we think we can add value, we tailor a detailed publishing proposal.

To learn more about the Mascot process, please visit our FAQs page.

If you have a story to tell, we invite you to visit our submissions page and contact us with project details.
