Dear Savvy Senior,
I know there won’t be much of a cost-of-living increase in Social Security benefits next year but what about Medicare? How will the 0.3 percent Social Security raise affect our Part B monthly premiums in 2017?
Considering the rising cost of health care coverage, the news regarding your Medicare costs for 2017 is not too bad. Here’s what you can expect.
It’s here! The audiobook teaser for ‘Last Room at the Cliff’s Edge: A Detective Linda Mystery.’ Narrator Daniela Acitelli provides the perfect mix of calm and deadly in this first in the Detective Linda series. Look for the audiobook in late December on Audible, Amazon and iTunes. In the meantime, you can read this 5-star fan favorite in paperback or ebook. Be sure to check out my other audiobooks, including teasers HERE. And remember Murder makes the perfect stocking stuffer!

It’s a pleasure to welcome back author Joe Cosentino, “the hardest working man in M/M romance” … and mysteries and novellas and, now, audiobooks! Joe currently has four audiobooks out, with more on the way. Audibooks are the fastest growing segment of the publishing world, and I wanted to get Joe’s take and experience on this increasingly popular way to enjoy our favorite books. (You can read previous interviews with Joe on his writing and life HERE and HERE.)
MM: Joe, thanks so much for finding time to answer a few more questions. You’ve got four audiobooks out now. Can you give us a quick rundown of the books they’re from?

Imagine the first person who created a toothbrush.
Better yet – imagine life before a toothbrush. Think about it: getting your mouth minty-fresh wasn’t exactly easy with twigs or rags. Same things with clean hair, unspoiled leftovers, unsmelly bathrooms, or cool gamepieces, as you’ll see in “Brief Histories of Everyday Objects” by Andy Warner.
