Stress-Free Retirement Planning
Genre – Nonfiction, Finance
Rating – PG13
5 (10 reviews)
Free until 09 October 2012
Retirement planning is one of the most talked about subjects in personal finance. As a Certified Financial Planner since 2000, it's always the most frequent and important query that I get from prospective clients all across the USA. It is the author's belief that until you can answer this question with a firm "YES", you should keep learning more about how to best prepare for a long and prosperous retirement (and then taking the appropriate planning actions to achieve your goal). 

 Here's the question: Are you 100% certain that the retirement path that you are currently on, is going to lead you to a great, worry-free retirement -- no matter how long you live? Or do you have some doubts? If you have some doubts about your retirement, as most of my clients initially had before they started working with me, I'm confident that this book can help provide you with a simple and solid road map to a secure retirement. It can be read in about a half hour or so and it's easy-to-understand and comes with helpful graphics. (The book is really for USA citizens/residents ONLY as I am not familiar with investment/tax laws in other countries). 

 This book is very different than 97% of the books about planning for retirement. It does NOT offer the same old, tired and failed advice of: work hard, live well below your means,save more money, diversify and buy "five star" mutual funds. It is NOT about buy, hold... and keep praying. No... this book describes a foundational retirement strategy which provides many other important personal finance benefits – while both saving for retirement and then during retirement. 

These benefits include great liquidity and tax and penalty-free access to most of your savings, safety of principle, good potential annual returns without stock, bond, real estate or commodity market risks and a tax-free retirement income stream in the future. You CAN retire with confidence and put this planning on cruise control. This proven financial strategy offers a safe and proven method for building wealth over time. It is not a get-rich quick scheme nor does it involve taking unreasonable risks. The strategy is completely recession-proof which is very important since an economic recession occurs about every five years. So depending upon how many years you have until your own retirement date, you'll likely go through a few of them while you are accumulating money to retire on. And once you are retired, you'll likely experience another 5-7 of them while taking income distributions if you live to average life-expectancy in the USA. 

 The book also shatters five retirement "myths", providing some thought-provoking facts which should change the way you've thought about traditional retirement planning and building wealth. This information alone is worth the price of the book, but the simple alternative retirement planning road map and unique strategies are written in later chapters. You will learn how to easily avoid stock market risks and then gain nice profits during stock market rebounds (as it always does). 

You will also learn how to use your retirement savings as your "personal bank" so that you can self-finance your own car purchases, children's college education expenses and re-capture 100% of every single monthly car payment that you make. You can safely enjoy a tax-free retirement with this ROTH IRA alternative strategy and avoid so much stress. This personal finance strategy has been safely used by many Fortune 500 companies, small business owners and the wealthy for many decades.

Until Forever
Genre – Christian Fiction, Romance
Rating – PG

Free until 07 October 2012
Jessi hung up the phone. That was the fifth time she tried calling home with no answer. She had just started eating lunch when she remembered she had forgotten to call home. It was something she would never forgive herself for. It was something she would never forgive herself for… It wasn't until lunchtime that Jessi remembered to call home. No answer. She tried calling several times while she ate her lunch. Still no answer.

She closed her eyes and rested her arms and head on her desk. She breathed deeply, wishing she had remembered to call earlier. Until Forever is a story of a young family that is torn apart by the devastating effects of alcoholism. Can healing take place in a relationship when an unforgivable act is committed? Will Jessi's pain and Mark's guilt keep them apart forever, or will unforeseen circumstances bind them together? Darlene Shortridge attended Alderson Broaddus College as a voice major. 

She found she was more passionate about her writing classes than her vocal classes. She left college early and since that time has written various projects such as Bible School Curriculum and poetry. She has also written and recorded a CD of original music. She lives abroad with her husband and two children. Until Forever is her first novel.

Rating – G
4.7 (13 reviews)

Abbey Martin isn't willing to be the kind of 'player' her boss wants her to be. When he threatens to not promote her because she refuses to get in 'compromising' positions, she quits. If a day can go from bad to worse, it does for Abbey. She runs into Bruce Harrington on her way home—literally. Bruce Harrington was on his way to a very important meeting. That was until a raving lunatic with brown, bouncy hair spiraled towards him in her car and then on foot. 

Maybe he should count it a blessing that when she sent him cascading over the side of the embankment—he wasn't in his car. To make amends for causing Bruce to break a leg, Abbey becomes his chauffeur and helpmate until he recovers. When his cast is about to come off he has to face losing Abbey. There has to be some way he can keep her from walking out of his life forever. If a job offer won't do it then perhaps it's time for a proposal.
