     4RV Publishing announces the release of two new titles in May 2016: Joan's Elder Care Guide, a nonfiction book by Joan Y. Edwards, and Ghostly Visions, a Tweens & Teens Imprint by Penny Lockwood.

gives  caregivers ways to meet the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social needs of elders 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 elders 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 care giving responsibilities and contains information substitute caregivers must have to keep elders safe.      
     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.

     Ghostly Visions actually contains two novels for tweens and teens. Wendy Wiles attracts ghosts, first in Ghost for Rent, when her parents separate and she, her brother, and mother move into a haunted house. The mystery of who the ghosts are and why they "live" in the Wiles' home brings answers and a reunited family.
       In Ghost for Lunch, new neighbors and their restaurant bring new ghosts into Wendy's life, and she, her brother, and their new friend discover the two cases are connected.

     Both books are found on the 4RV Bookstore, as well as through physical bookstores and other online stores.
