New title reflects recent releases of new titles, “Dating” and Pockets
Mount Vernon, VA – aois21 publishing, LLC announces today the appointment of Executive Officer Keith F. Shovlin to the position of Publisher. Shovlin’s role in the company will not change, though the title reflects the recent steps forward by the company in releasing new titles.
Since starting the company, officially launching on May 8, 2014, Shovlin has overseen the signing of five new authors, the release of eight more books, the production and release of the first aois21 annual, and the launch of several new promotional opportunities, including the podcast series Publish Me! and Passion on the Page. He has recruited staff, secured printing rights and digital assets, booked events, made agreements with retail outlets, and worked tirelessly to promote aois21 Creatives and their work.
In March, aois21 released its first new titles, the nonfiction collection “Dating” as Told by the Modern Whore by Aylin Vega and the children’s book Pockets by Joshua M. Morgan. Previously, all aois21 titles were digital releases of previously published material. These are the first two of many original books to be published by aois21, including Paul Dickinson Russell’s The Will of the Magi and the just-released 48 Game Misconduct, the third book by Shovlin.
Shovlin is a 2011 graduate of the George Washington University School of Business, completing his Masters of Business Administration specializing in Marketing of Services. He also earned a Diploma of Marketing Communication from the International Association of Advertisers and a Diploma in Management during a residency at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago, Chile. As the sole member of the LLC and the Publisher, he is solely responsible for all company operations. As Chief Creative, his written work is the foundation for the company's product base.
"Nothing has changed in what I’m doing here at aois21,” said Shovlin. "What’s changed is what we as a company are doing. We have taken the next step forward and we are now bringing original content to the public. By taking this title, I am recognizing the greater impact we can have as a company for prospective authors, working to set their story free."
