B.S., Incorporated – St. Cloud Book Signing
Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss announced today that they will be doing a reading and signing event at the Barnes & Noble in St. Cloud on Friday, April 28th at 6:00PM for their new novel B.S., Incorporated. Michael is particularly excited about this event because St. Cloud is his hometown.
Michael is a graduate of St. Cloud Tech High School and the St. Cloud Technical and Community College. He began his career working for local companies such as Viking Coca-Cola and Marco Business Products – experiences that helped shape the story lines and characters found in B.S., Incorporated. He went on to become senior director of worldwide internal communications for Best Buy Co., Inc., before partnering with Jennifer to launch their own communications agency and complete their debut novel.
Funny, insightful, and heartfelt, B.S., Incorporated is a feel-good story about people finding themselves and coming into their own while simultaneously skewering every aspect of life in Corporate America. It’s a book that anyone in the business world will get a huge kick out of… After all, every job contains a certain amount of B.S.
“We like to think of our book events as part entertainment, part workplace support group,” says Michael. “We will read a little from our book, share some of the back stories that went into writing it, and encourage attendees to share their own hilarious and heartbreaking tales.”
Business Solutions, Inc. is in a state of chaos. While the employees spend their time rendezvousing in the stairwells, the CEOs are running their business into the ground through the use of shady consultants. Will Evans, warehouse-worker-turned-white-collar-employee, is put in charge of implementing the consultants’ plans. Here he finds himself thrust into a muddle of absurdity and responsibility that he never expected.
When the plans push BSI to the brink of bankruptcy, Will teams up with Anna Reed, a corporate mercenary with heels as high as her ambition. He needs her cunning and courage to pull off his covert plan to save the company. Can Anna, the consummate job jumper, find a reason to go all-in on BSI? Or is she better off bailing and letting the company go down in flames?

About the Authors:
Jennifer and Michael have a shared passion for storytelling that goes back – way back – to when Jennifer published haikus in her first-grade newsletter, and Mike entertained other kids on the school bus with his creative fiction.
Not surprisingly, their jones for crafting a tale fueled their individual career paths, where each held roles in journalism, advertising, public relations, marketing and corporate communications. Jennifer and Michael had the good fortune to work for and with companies that spanned industries and impact – from privately held start-ups to Fortune 50 powerhouses to, now, their own communications agency.
Both authors live near Minneapolis where they work as speakers and consultants. They share their best stories during happy hour. B.S., Incorporated is their debut novel.
