All of this made Consumption: A Novel a true triumph - Cha: An Asian Literary Journal

Greg Johnston is one of those writers I envy… a writer of unique and uncluttered prose. Prue Batten Mesmered's Blog

I found myself reading faster at the end of pages so I could get to the next one.

Johnston captures the type of expatriate lifestyle (in Hong Kong) that sometimes seems like an alternate reality. A Kindle in Hong Kong

Amy was cursed. There was no doubt about it. It happened the day her mother left her in an old Lost and Found box when she was only three. That day, she believed, was the day that she had been cursed with the uncanny ability to locate lost items, people and things, but never to be able to find things she had lost herself. Tossed around from home to home, because no one wants her around, Amy is placed under the care of an old German man named, Mr. Heckler. 

There Amy finds, a lost baby deer, a home, and a chance of a new life. Given a list of lost items to locate, Amy sets out to prove her abilities, only to find herself a pawn of power, in a very dangerous game of seek and find, where desperate individuals will stop at nothing until she has found every secret, and dug up every treasure the town has. FLOTSAM, is an adventure story that tells of forgiveness, and hope, of shipwrecked lives, and of those amazing coastguards of life who take the time to find us when we are lost.

The Watcher – Sam Croft
Genre – Historical Fiction
Rating – PG13

Free until 11 November 2012
In 1888, two brothers, Jack, a criminal recluse, and John, a society gentleman, live in opposite ends of Victorian London. When John falls in love, unspoken bonds are tested, unwittingly exposing secrets guarded since his childhood.

Horrified by links to the London underground, and appalled by the extent of his brother's jealousy, John soon realises that these secrets not only affect his past, but also threaten to affect this future.

The Watcher is constructed around facts of the Jack the Ripper case, incorporating popular myths and theories. Through fiction, it examines the Whitechapel murders in a way that has never before been explored.

Why did the murderer have committed such terrible crimes? What might have made him into such a monster? Why did the murders start then just as swiftly end?

Recession-Proof Retirement – Mark J. Orr

In thinking about your own retirement, does it seem "more probable" to you that your money will outlive you… or that YOU will outlive your money? In either case, by reading this book we can safely make your savings work much harder for you.

This book is a "must have" for people who are already retired or are within just a few years of their retirement. If this describes you, then please keep reading. However if you are more than 5 years from retirement, please search for his book "Stress-Free Retirement Planning" on Amazon (paperback or Kindle), which will be more appropriate for your situation.

"Recession-Proof Retirement" shows retirees how to safely increase your interest income, reduce your income taxes and/or predictably increase your security, wealth and legacy.

A successful retirement is no longer a "slam dunk". With fewer retirees getting sizable pensions, the lingering effects of the great recession of 2008, a decade of stock market volatility and continuing historically low interest rates, managing finances for a long and prosperous retirement can be tricky for all but the very wealthy.

As a practicing Certified Financial Planner, Mr. Orr likes to start a retirement income discussion with this fact. There have been 23 economic recessions since 1900 and more will follow. They can all adversely and permanently impact a retiree's lifestyle and/or their hopes for leaving a meaningful legacy. On average, one happens about every five years, so you will likely experience 5-7 recessions during your retirement.

Have you recovered from the last two recessions yet? Are you fully prepared for the next one?

Along with the high likelihood of living through a number of future recessions, longevity and inflation are the big demons to beat during retirement. Many retirees have yet to fully consider, plan and invest for these nearly inevitable occurrences.

That could be an awful mistake unless you have more than a million dollars in savings, a large pension that you both can count on… and you don't rely on two Social Security checks each month. What will happen when one of those Social Security checks stops coming in?

The average lifespan of retired Americans has been rising for many decades and will continue to do so as medical advances keep us alive longer. A couple aged 62 today, has a joint life expectancy of age 92 - so at least one of them is likely to live until age 92 or even longer. Therefore we should really plan for a 25-35 year retirement income stream.

However, we can't forget about inflation risk over the next few decades. Every year, everything that you will need to buy will cost more. At just 3% inflation, your cost of living will double in 24 years. With inflation factored in, we need to plan for a 25-35 year "rising income" -- as your cost of living during retirement will probably double. One cannot afford to wait and deal with this looming economic "time-bomb" later.

With that in mind, retirees need secure places to put their money that provide decent returns that safely beat inflation over the next two or three decades, provide great liquidity at any time, offer flexibility and much more.

This book comes with examples of how his clients are using these financial strategies and solutions for a more secure retirement income. The income planning strategies combined with what he believes are some of the best types of investments for retirement to beat inflation and your likely longevity.

These safe retirement investments can be the perfect CD alternatives, bond alternatives and annuity alternatives are a safe place for retirement money. They come with a lot of flexibility and other important benefits for you and your family. And this book is NOT about index annuities which so many annuity salespeople are pushing onto seniors today.

The educational and easy-to-understand information in this book can provide security and great long-term rising income solutions for America's retirees and seniors.

  Meet Hailey - possessed by an otherworldly being who was trapped in her Kindle.

Hailey Parrish is quick-witted, irreverent, and hasn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension.

 When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?
