Bad Vampires (Good Vampires Book 1) by Karl Larew

Good vampires are humans with a metabolic need for little sips of blood from willing normals. Bad vampires sip to kill, for fun. Good Vampire Lance and his normal girl friend Carol battle Bad Vampire Elmer and his Mad Scientist cohort, Dr. Beasly, who want to create a hypnotizing movie with a giant diamond named Gladstone so as to entice their victims. Many car chases, ambushes, explosions (of Mad Scientist laboratories, for example), along with much biting–for love as well as war–the issue remains in doubt until the very end.

Breaking Into The Movies! – From Inglewood to Hollywood!: What Really Happens Behind The Lights And The Long Road To Get There! by Michael Uva

“Breaking Into The Movies!” It is the humorous (true) story of the life of a kid from Inglewood California, who made it up the food chain to become a world famous Motion Picture Key Grip! Michael G. Uva is the author of the world-renowned, Grip Book! (A.k.a.= The Grip Bible.) (Now in it’s fifth edition/Taylor-Francis) Why it’s even been translated into Korean. Funny thing is, Mike can’t spell or type, nor does he have any command of the English language. None of that has held him back. Actually not much holds him back. Not even a one half inch shorter left leg. (Courtesy of a motorcycle jumping accident while serving eight years in the Marines.) So after his medical discharge, he became a Licensed FAA Aircraft Mechanic at LAX in California. He later became a State Licensed Building Contractor and then on to becoming a pretty famous motion picture Key Grip in the film industry. Then he decided to author a book. It did well. So then he decided to teach at U.C.L.A. for the Extension courses. He has been there, seen that, and broke it all by himself. But you have never heard of any of the things that he has been part of? All these things, spied from behind the movie lights. All closely held and guarded set secrets… until now. He’s worked with the Lone Ranger, Elvira, Val Kilmer, Al Pacino, and a few really famous people as well.

Why would he give away these secrets you ask? I posed that very question to Mike myself. “Mike, why give away all these secrets that you have had tucked away, upstairs for over thirty-five plus years?” His answer was quite simple… “What?” (He’s a grip!)

I rewrote the question, “Why now?” His amazing answer… “It’s time!” (I reiterate; He’s a grip!)
There you have it folks, literally straight from the horses mouth… or the bulls other end!

You will just have to read it and decide for yourselves.

How to Negotiate Salary: An Essential Guide to Negotiating Salary with Confidence and Ease by Brent Ashton

If you are hesitant about discussing salary, or reluctant to ask for higher pay, then this book is for you!
Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, or Kindle device.

The economic crash of 2008 created the single most fearful atmosphere in professional environments within the last half century or so. Job security became a meaningless term, and personal worth became a joke in recruiting circles. While you may or may not have been part of this wave of desperate employees hanging on by a string, the fact is that companies continue to sign on skilled personnel for far less than they are actually willing to pay. Moreover, there are legions of employees who stick with a company through thick and thin, valuing their own loyalty to the firm far above any acclaim or compensation which competitors could offer — only to never see that same loyalty rewarded, nor their contributions fully acknowledged. What started off as a passionate drive to do one’s best (assuming the money would follow) often ends with someone’s hard work getting exploited while they’re receiving a salary far below what it could have been, had they only been comfortable enough discussing salary and insisting on higher pay. Negotiating salary remains one of the most awkward processes in the entire work force system — often resulting in people meekly accepting what they’re offered, rather than what they’re owed. And that’s the reason for this book. While giving your all to your job is indeed admirable, use the words of wisdom in this book to finally help you get the salary you’re truly owed for that dedication.

Then comes the island of Socotra which nobody knows and which once was a base for pirates; the Chagos atolls, the Maldives islands that are out of bounds for tourists; the perilous East African coastline, and the currents and cyclones of the Mozambique Channel. They’re on a journey of discovery, following nothing but their instincts and their thirst for adventure, far beyond all known routes, searching for the last hidden corners of our planet.

Avery is different. Never completely broken, she must pretend in order to survive. But when love sparks the light inside Avery, her magic blooms to full force. It’s only once she is ripped away from this love that Avery finds herself at The Farm, facing truths she never expected and the possibility that she could be the spark her people need to reignite.
