Have you ever had an idea for a book and wondered why it hasn't been written yet? Or have you ever dreamed of being published one day, but feel overwhelmed by where to even begin? A clever company called Mascot Books is making everyday people into authors, many of whom choose to write about their favorite sport or team.
Mascot Books was founded in 2003 after Aimee and Naren Aryal were inspired to write a book about the Virginia Tech Hokies for their 2-year-old daughter on a car ride home from a football game. This led to a children's book series featuring collegiate and professional team mascots with straightforward story lines set against beautifully detailed illustrations that accurately capture beloved stadiums and campuses across the country.
