About American Book Fest President & CEO, Jeffrey Keen
Located in Los Angeles and Phoenix, American Book Fest is involved in numerous aspects of the publishing and entertainment industries.
Jeffrey Keen is the President and CEO of American Book Fest. Jeffrey has worked in the publishing industry in an executive capacity for over twenty years and has helped thousands of authors, publishers, and public speakers garner media coverage and strategic partnerships that boost both sales and the reputation of represented clients. From working with mega-million best-selling authors to first-time authors self-publishing their work, Jeff has brought insight, expertise, and creativity to all of his projects.
AmericanBookFest.com was launched in 2014 with the intention of becoming not only an online presence but eventually offering workshops and live events throughout the United States. American Book Fest is now the main sponsor of our family of book award contests and publishing related websites. And, as the name implies, we celebrate the written word in all genres, fiction and non-fiction.
Companies grow, evolve, and transform over time. For our first decade, we were known as USA Book News. In 2014, we were able to acquire the American Book Fest name. Today, our American Book Fest brand better encapsulates what we do…celebrate the written word, rather than simply reporting on book releases. This move has broadened our media reach, increased concentrated traffic to our award results, and continues to allow us to highlight the thousands of titles listed on AmericanBookFest.com!
The American Book Fest is here to stay for decades to come. Join us as we continue to honor, promote, and feature self-published, independent, and mainstream titles!
