3 Reasons to Hire a Bookworm

Did you ever consider how having bookworms around can improve your business? One reason is because bookworms read. A lot. Here’s how that can translate into a better bottom line for your enterprise.

 

A Staff Proofer

Because bookworms read so regularly, they often have an aptitude for seeing when a piece of literature has errors or is not as clear as it could be. This saves you time because you don’t have to send your newsletters, ad copy, emails, and other text to a third party for proofing.

 

An Easy Communicator

Meetings are tedious (honestly, often useless) events for the majority of companies. Having people on your team who enjoy reading and are comfortable being communicated with in text means sending an email is just as effective–if not more so–than having to stop everyone’s productivity in order to have a meeting. This keeps your staff generating money instead of struggling to stay awake in the conference room.

 

A Safe Employee

Generally speaking, someone who is truly in love with reading will do so in their spare time. This makes them less likely to get into accidents or fall ill in many cases because they aren’t engaging in risky activities such as pub crawls, mountain climbing, or criminal activity. This helps ensure that they will consistently show up to work and be healthy enough to perform their duties optimally. This saves your business a portion of the estimated $84,000,000,000 (that’s billion) business lose each year due to employee absences (including coming to work late or leaving early).

 

Now that you have some idea of a few ways that bookworms can help make your business more profitable and more stable, you might want to consider asking about reading habits during your next interview!

Thanks for reading!

Calling All Producers: Show Her Audio Book

For immediate release. Please pass along to any producers and voice talents who might be interested. 

Publisher Seeks Producer for Latest Audio Book

CLARKSTON, GA, June 4, 2017– As of midnight on May 31st, Volo Press found itself without a producer for its latest book, Show Her. Now, it is opening auditions up to the public via the Audible (Amazon) site ACX.com in order to draw talent from all across the world.

“It’s an unfortunate and bizarre circumstance,” says T. L. Curtis, Founder and CEO of Volo Press. “We had a producer who actually recorded the entire piece, then didn’t finalize the project by the due date of May 31st. Now we’ve got to start over from square one.”

California radio DJ Don Abad was hired to take on the project. He had recorded and submitted the entire book for final revision requests. But, according to Curtis, once the revisions were requested, there was no response.

“I thought maybe he was just working on it. Got busy with some other projects, you know. But I never heard back from him. At this point, it’s time to make sure the project gets done at all. I hate it though, since he had done a good job over all.”

Volo Press invites interested parties to submit auditions at https://www.acx.com/titleview/AYJ473JO41T3J.

The audition script is available on the ACX website.

Show Her is a dystopian, psychological thriller that follows the story of Erika Wogo as she battles threats to her marriage and her “perfect” life. The book currently holds more than 4.5 stars on Amazon.com, 3.5 stars on Goodreads.com, and 4 stars on BarnesAndNoble.com.
