In 2003, Mascot Books began with the publication of a single book about the Virginia Tech mascot written by our CEO, Naren Aryal. Since then, we have worked with thousands of authors to publish books across a variety of genres, from novels to memoirs to cookbooks to picture books. We’re proud of our work over the last two decades and of our company’s growth. Today, we’re thrilled to share the exciting next chapter in our story: we have rebranded to Amplify Publishing Group (APG).
APG represents the full spectrum of our work and brings our family of six imprints, including Mascot Books and Mascot Kids, together for the first time. With this initiative comes amazing additions to our leadership team, a new comprehensive company website, and upcoming changes to the look and feel of the Mascot Books website and bookstore.
In the twenty years since our founding, we have published bestselling books by passionate writers; seen our titles featured in major news outlets such as the New York Times, Good Morning America, People, Thrive Global, and Buzzfeed; and established ourselves as a leading independent hybrid publisher. Though our company name might be changing, our dedication to our authors and to publishing incredible books will remain the same.
You will still find news related to Mascot Books, Mascot Kids, and Subplot Publishing on this website and our Facebook and Instagram, and our Mascot bookstore will include all of the titles under these three imprints. Featuring titles under the Amplify Publishing, RealClear Publishing, and Tagged Publishing imprints, our new website is also home to information about our publishing process and comprehensive services and the many exceptional authors we work with.
We’re looking forward to continuing to bring inspiring, game-changing books to life over the next twenty years and hope you will join us on this journey.
