Mascot Books has changed quite a bit in the last year. While our core goals of producing high quality books, supporting our authors, and engaging with the book community are the same, we’ve revamped some key pieces of our operation. We’re excited to share these changes with you!
As you may have noticed, things look a little different here at Mascotbooks.com. We’ve spent the last several months renovating our website to showcase more of our upcoming titles and give authors a comprehensive view of the services we offer. As a multi-genre publishing house, we’re proud to produce a diverse range of books by authors of all backgrounds and look forward to sharing them with you.
We’re also overhauling our blog. We’ll still post release day roundups, but be on the lookout for new content, including author interviews, guest blogs from members of Team Mascot and other experts in the publishing industry, and spotlight features to help you find the next book to put on your to-read list. If you’ve got an idea for a post on the blog, contact our blog editor, Emily Evans-Miller.
We’ve had quite a few new faces join Mascot this year and we’d love for you to meet them. Be sure to check out our Team page and put a face to an email address!
We moved! We outgrew our old office with twenty-five staff members and counting, but we didn’t move far! We’re still headquartered in Herndon, Virginia—a quick drive from Washington, DC—and just a few blocks from our old location. From the beautiful, hand-painted logo behind our reception desk, to the framed covers of some of our books lining the halls, to our conference room with a view, we’ve made a home we’re proud to share with our authors.
While we have been active on Facebook for some time, we are expanding our social media horizons to reach even more authors, readers, and retailers. Follow our newly redesigned accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn to stay up-to-date on what’s going on at Mascot Books.
Through all these changes, Mascot Books remains passionate about creativity, storytelling, and supporting authors as they work toward their goals. So what’s next for Mascot? We’re going to continue to add diverse voices to our list and publish stories the world needs to hear. We’re working to create meaningful content on our website and engage in conversations about the publishing world with writers we know and writers we don’t know (yet).
We’re also looking forward to the books in our pipeline: nonfiction that’s going to make a splash in the news cycle, a cookbook with an unexpected special ingredient, a novel that combats stigma against mental illness, a children’s book about a superhero with a unique name, just to share a few. So follow us on social, subscribe to the blog, join our mailing list, and check back often for updates and news about the goings on at Mascot Books. We can’t wait to share what’s next!
