Why Team-Up with LGIBooks? – The Benefits
We have a unique team production process
We have a catalog of over 200 research-informed web & book titles, with more book titles being added regularly. See Tom’s Book Titles Story
Many of our titles lend themselves to series for different niche markets. To find out more about our series titles, apply to find out more.
Each web and book project is focused on a “basic life principle” that is supported by substantial credible scientific research or which is so “self-evident” from human experience as to need no scientific validation.
You’ll be making a real contribution to the world, to “the human team,” by helping to translate important research about “human nature” and human functionality in ways that most anyone can understand and apply in their own lives
- Submit your resume showing your publishing-related work experience.
- Write a few paragraphs (or record a video or audio) about how you resonate with any one of the current LGIBooks projects; what particularly interests you about it; what questions you have; what more you’d like to know about it.
- If you have any speaking or group-teaching experience, please include a summary if not already included in your resume. If you have a video or audio of any speaking event, please share that with us if you are able to. Prior speaking and teaching experience is a preference, but is not a requirement.
Interview & Audition Process:
- If we accept your application, we’ll ask you to sign a non-disclosure agreement, and then we’ll schedule an introductory meeting (online or in person) to discuss our unique team production process, and to discuss you doing an Audition for being on our team.
- For an Audition, we’ll provide you with the current working outline of the project; at least five audios developing/exploring the project; recommendations for you look at least two relevant research articles or chapters to get a sense of the research support for the project; and one audio outlining our specific production strategy.
- Audition format: (1) Write a candid, honest response/evaluation to the working outline: what you like about it; what works; what you don’t like; what you don’t understand; what more you want to know about the project just from the outline and the audios; what you’d want to change in the outline; how it could be improved ; and (2) Write a candid evaluation of our production strategy — what works, what you like; what you think doesn’t work about it and what you think could be improved.
- We think the possibility of working with us on the development of this project (and possible future projects) is a valuable enough opportunity for you to do this audition for free or at reduced rate.
If, however, you have substantial demonstrated high-level publishing success, don’t hesitate to ask for a reasonable consulting fee for this audition piece if you would otherwise not apply.
Likewise, if you are currently unemployed or under-employed, don’t hesitate to ask for a stipend for your time and effort at doing an audition for us.
