Layoff Skullduggery: The Official Humor Guide by Leander Jackie Grogan

There are official announcements and unsettling rumors of ongoing layoffs swirling around in every, city, state, industry, profession and government principality. They are designed to rattle your psyche and give you a sense of uncertainly and helplessness. But fear not. A counter-insurgency of determined survivors with the specialized knowledge to escape the sharp blade of the ax and gloomy glue of the pink slip has arisen among us. Operatives are making some smooth moves on the Man (and Woman) that keep them one step ahead of the shakeout. Now you can make those same moves.
This first chapter gives you some basic goofball tactics that will confound your supervisory opponents and have them frantically combing through company policy manuals to find a rational response. The second chapter ventures into some advance moves that boggle the mind with ambiguities, never lending themselves to an official response because your ax-slinging supervisory is not quite sure what he or she is responding to.

If they eventually figure it out, it’s okay. You’ll have bought some precious time and created some wonder stories to tell your grandchildren. Have a lot of fun and enjoy the ride.

About the Author

Leander Jackie Grogan is a native of Houston, Texas, graduate of Texas Tech University and novelist for twenty plus years. His excellence in writing extends over a multiplicity of genres with seven novels having been distributed in eleven countries and five different languages. Both, Exorcism At Midnight and Black Church Blues have become bestsellers with worldwide distribution and popular choices for discussion on national talk shows. He has won numerous local and national awards in creative writing for radio, print and the web. Besides having authored a number of nonfiction articles in such national publications as the Houston Business Journal, AdWeek, Dallas Weekly, Jet and Business info Magazine, Grogan is author of a current business bestseller, What’s Wrong With Your Small Business Team; at one point in 2011, holding the #44 spot in the small business category on Grogan also serves as a guest blogger for the national crime/suspense writer’s website, Murder by 4, Book Bloggers, has written and produced three local spiritual comedies, and some years ago, had a work of fiction published in Hustler Magazine. Grogan’s popularity continues to grow exponentially as a member of the new breed of storytellers unencumbered by the dictates of old world cookie-cutter characters and a narrow spotlight, perpetually shining on the rich side of town. His characters are bold and edgy and unpredictable, and invariably in conflict with traditional values. His writings go out of their way to explore spiritual unknowns and the deep crevices of the mind that harbor raw insight and truth. Grogan’s favorite writer, and most preponderant upon his current style, is the late Sidney Sheldon. Specific works such as Polar Shift by Clive Cussler, Dead Zone by Stephen King, Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison, Deep Cover by Michael Tolkin and The Rainmaker by John Grisham have also had a great influence on his commitment to rich, multi-layered characterization and intricately crafted plots.
