A Message from the "Empress"
Owner, Founder, and Casting Director of the Empire
Many of you may already know me through my many years of promotional work within the audiobook industry. When I founded Audiobookworm Promotions in 2016, I was filling a hole in the industry by providing a much-needed service to the indie authors, narrators, and publishers long neglected by the fast-paced and ever-evolving audiobook business.
I chose the name Audiobook Empire because of the sense of community it inspires. An empire is so much more than one person. Everyone has their place in an empire, everyone is integral to its success, and everyone is welcome.
I love this industry, but primarily, I love audiobooks. I am, and always will be, a listener first. By choosing to work with people who love audiobooks and this industry as much as I do, I know that the titles we produce are labors of love. As a listener, I know that love can be heard and felt through the speakers.

Meet Jasmine Jordan
Executive Marketing Assistant; Master of the Imperial Review Guild
From the time she picked up her first book at the age of three, Jasmine has always been a lover of words.
Growing up, Jasmine used the words in books to discover new worlds and escape reality. As a student, she was a huge fan of English class and discovered her love of writing as well. Penning poems, short stories, and fan fiction became a hobby, and her love of words grew.
Jasmine now uses her fascination with words and the skills she learned from many wonderful teachers to proofread stories (and audiobooks), helping authors make their books shine. She has worked with new authors, USA Today Bestselling authors, and many others in-between.
When Jasmine isn’t proofreading or efforting on behalf of the Empire, she can be found spending time with her husband and kids, hosting game nights with friends, reviewing books on her blog, or fangirling over nerdy TV shows.
