I don’t even know where to start with all the releases hitting shelves in August. My must-read list for this month alone is massive. But the obvious ones will be read first: Succubus Revealed, One Grave at a Time, Blood Bound, Bloodlines and Body of Sin. But, really, more than half of these books are my to-read. Can you narrow it down to you top 5 must-reads for August?

    The Dark Elite by Chloe Neill on August 2nd.

  5. Deann says:

    Power of Six, Second Grave on the Left, One Grave at a Time, and maybe try Bloodlines and BloodBound. But there are others that are being added as well.

  6. There are a million great books on this list! How could I choose?

    And I thought BLOODLINES was to be released on the 23rd, not the 30th? Or am I just thinking crazy?

  8. Elite Systems Services is about providing experience and value to both the consumer and the investor. The 20 years of experience in researching trends in sales and marketing have resulted in a machine that vends both drinks and snacks. This innovation is simply another way that Elite Systems Services has worked to meet the needs of the customers.
    As for the investor, their needs are met as soon as possible. Because the start-up cost is relatively low, it’s possible to see profit starting immediately. Because of that, it’s also possible to get the machine paid for as soon as possible. Some might balk at the idea of it being paid off in a matter of months, but it’s a matter of months versus a matter of years in most other cases.
    At this point, the big worry should be your expenditures. And that’s a fair worry. Money in minus money out equals profit, and if you spend more than you make then you aren’t making a profit. Fortunately, there are very little in the way of expenses to accrue. It mostly has to do with gas and meals while making your weekly rounds, and you can write those off for taxes.
