192: What It’s Like to Start an Independent Book Publishing Company w/ Naren Aryal, Mascot Books [Main T4C episode]

Naren Aryal co-founded Mascot Books in 2003 with a single self-published book about a collegiate mascot and zero experience in the publishing industry. When that book took off he was more than happy to quit his job as a corporate attorney and dive headfirst into the dynamic world of books.  Since then Mascot Books, a full-service hybrid book publishing company, has published more than 3,000 fiction, nonfiction, children’s, and cookbooks and has established itself as one of America’s fastest growing and most respected independent publishing houses.
