Joan's Elder Care Guide ~ cover art and design for Joan Y Edwards (@joanyedwards) and 4RV Publishing(@4RV)

As many of my readers know, my primary income stems from commissions from small publishers, plus indie and hybrid authors. One of those small publishers (4RV Publishing) was crazy enough to adopt me as the art director several years ago, then added VP of Operations to my resume, and now they can't get rid of me.

4RV's latest release, Joan's Elder Care Guide, happens to have a cover by yours truly. As AD, the majority of the books released pass my screen for layout, however, most of the covers or illustrations are not created by me, but by the 4RV team of artists. This particular cover is a digital compilation sketch and painting using a couple photographs of Joan's mother, making it a personal tribute for her, as well as an encouragingly informative guide and handbook. I include a b/w sketch on the title page, too. There are several charts in the appendix for the reader to utilize by filling in related information, making it a truly useful, everyday tool for everything from organizational tips to emergency needs that will slide right into a purse or overnight bag. Certainly not one of those books you half-read then sit on a shelf to collect dust. Even better, if you are like me a are hard on paperback books, 4RV is offering it in hardcover at the same time. No need to wait for the format that best suits your needs. Enough from me, though, read the blurb ...

Joan’s Elder Care Guide: Empowering You and Your Elder to Survive gives you, the caregiver, ways to meet your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social needs and those of your elder to promote healing, well-being, and survival. Based on the author’s research and fourteen years of experience caring for her mother, this book provides many resources to find the right place for your elder to live, explains ways to improve communication to help find solutions to problems, and gives organization ideas for medical, financial, insurance, and legal documents. It offers ways for a caregiver to get time away from caregiving responsibilities and contains information substitute caregivers must have to keep their elders safe. Along with all this, the book explains the signs of the end of life, ways to celebrate an elder’s life, and gives duties of an executor of an estate. It also includes ten useful charts to assist in assessing and recording an elder’s needs and capabilities.

Be sure to visit the 4RV Publishing website and bookstore (in the nonfiction section) for your discounted copy today. Also available on Amazon at a slightly higher retail price. (Bulk and wholesale orders must be made through 4RV directly.)

  1. Loved that the cover was a tribute to Joan's mother. Joan has done her research so well and put her experience and love into JOAN'S ELDER CARE GUIDE. She is an inspiration!
