Beth Cox Report: October 2015

Dear Loyal Readers, Authors, and Publishers,

This month, all of us at the Midwest Book Review were surprised and saddened to learn about the passing of Harriet Klausner. She was a Senior Reviewer of the MBR Bookwatch, and our single most prolific volunteer reviewer. She simply loved books, and she loved to share her reading experiences with others. Her final "Klausner's Bookshelf" column will be run in the November 2015 MBR Bookwatch.

She will be dearly missed.

Please forgive me for keeping the rest of this Beth Cox Report brief. I would like to share a potentially valuable Link of the Month, "Publisher Database"

a website packed with community resources for writers, authors, poets, and photographers, as well as means to connect with markets looking for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, scripts/screenplays, photography, art, comics and more.

And finally, October's Book of the Month is a universally valuable title, as those of us who are still many years away from age 55 likely have relatives and friends who may be closing in on that milestone:

Judith D. Grimaldi, Esq. & Joanne Seminara, Esq. with Pierre A. Lehu
Quill Driver Books
2006 South Mary, Fresno, CA 93721
9781610352581, $12.95,

5@55: The 5 Essential Legal Documents You Need By Age 55 comes from two elder law attorneys and provides a slim but information-packed discussion of the five most important legal documents one needs at age 55: a Will, a Health Care Proxy, a Living Will, a Power of Attorney and a Digital Diary. While most will have heard of the wills and power of attorney, the latter document is something many won't know about; and by setting a age-related deadline of 55 to explain why these documents are needed and how to work with a lawyer to make sure they're in order, consumers can be assured that they will have clear coverage of all the basics in language they can readily understand.

That's all for the October 2015 Beth Cox Report. Take care.
