Business Solutions Inc. is falling apart at the seams. While employees kill time stalking free snacks and filming porn in the HQ stairwells the company's co-CEOs bring in shadowy corporate consultants to shake up their business in ways even they don't understand.
As the communications manager tasked with translating C-suite doublespeak Will Evans is constantly torn between his blue-collar warehouse past and his white-collar future.

When BSI is pushed to the brink of bankruptcy Will hatches a covert plan that just might save them all. But he needs Anna's cunning and courage to pull it off. 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?
Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss's shared passion for storytelling goes back-way back-to when Jennifer published haikus in her first-grade newsletter and Mike entertained other kids on the bus with his creative fiction. Their jones for stories fueled their individual career paths where they worked in journalism advertising public relations marketing and corporate communications. They've had the good fortune to work for and with companies from privately held startups to Fortune 50 powerhouses to their own communications agency.
Along the way they took notes-"someone-should-write-a-book-about-this" notes-all about the humor mayhem and humanity of corporate America. They may have upgraded their audience from back-of-the-bus to business class but their mission remains the same: tell an entertaining story.
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.
