Book a real winner

STONY Creek resident, author and regular radio contributor John Lynn, a passionate advocate for promoting more sustainable habits and energy efficient practices, especially when it comes to energy efficiency in the home, was featured in GC&M News back in the December 9, 2020 edition.

John had published an eight-chapter book called ‘Home Energy Efficiency Secrets – The Inside Story’, which went on to become an Amazon best seller in Australia, the UK and the USA, spending seven weeks in Amazon Australia’s top 100 bestsellers’ chart.

GC&M News has one copy of the book up for grabs. All you need to do to win it is share your best home energy efficiency tip on the GC&M News Facebook page to go into the prize draw.

John’s book is based on his meticulous research over 25 years, his interest in alternative energies and his passion for more energy-conscious living.

The book covers three main topics towards a goal of home energy efficiency – home design, energy efficient products and everyday habits.

John said he wanted to write something that anyone could relate to and so the book was written essentially for someone “starting from scratch”.

“I’ve been a teacher and community educator for over 30 years and I like to share information and knowledge, which I try to do with common sense, a walk-the-talk attitude and a good dose of humour,” he said.

John is a regular energy expert on community radio station FM 101.5, broadcasting a weekly slot with practical ways listeners can reduce their electricity bills. He also manages a home energy secrets website and Facebook page packed with tips and guides, including an online program on ways to become more energy self-reliant.

John’s book is available at local libraries, via Amazon or from links via his website. For more details go to or
