Do YOU or your business want to be a sponsor, too?

Here’s the basic run-down:

$50 gets you or your business in the next volume of a series of very cool books I’m producing, but not without the community’s help. 

Info Stuff:

Idaho writer Amy Larson shares her love for the Gem State in Appetite for Idaho: Volume One, through adventure stories and recipes of well-known Idahoans like the Idaho Press Tribune’s long-time managing editor Vickie Holbrook, radio personalities Randy Scott and Alana Lynn, 3 Girls Catering co-owner Gretchen Pelsma, The Sushi Bar McCall’s Jordan and Jennifer Ragsdale, weatherman Larry Gebert, Buffalo Gal sous chef Jake Totter, and more. 
She believes the combination of stories and food will instill warmth while connecting people, and the result is tasty. Beta readers (who include historians, local business owners, and a State of Idaho International Tourism Division Specialist) call Appetite for Idaho ‘a treat’, ‘engaging’, ‘stories with humor, reverence, and Idaho history’, ‘much more than expected’, and ‘an experience.’ 

Ms. Larson is currently a Treasure Valley writer, editor, book coach, and regular contributor to Idaho Magazine, Edible Idaho South, Eagle Magazine, Greenbelt Magazine, and Idaho Family Magazine. She is featured weekly on WOW104.3 FM as a guest entertainment editor on Randy & Alana’s Morning Show, and has a ‘Friday to Friday’ blog that lists family-friendly, mostly free events on WOW104.3 and KIDO radio’s websites. Her Appetite for Idaho blog, Facebook page, and Twitter micro-blogging attracts the attention of thousands throughout the state and beyond.

The first in a series, Appetite for Idaho: Volume One is expected to arrive in bookstores and eateries by summer of 2014, with a new volume of little-known stories, adventures, and recipes from some of the Gem State’s favorite Idahoans set to be produced yearly.

Amy's Note: It was suggested to me by a 30-year veteran of marketing that I acquire sponsors through the many friends I’ve made along the way. For a donation of $50, sponsors will be listed on both a gratitudinal blog link, and have their business or personal names appear with wording similar to this in the back of the book:

“Since its inception, Appetite for Idaho has been a community effort.
Special thanks go to:

Super Business
Great Magazine
Terrific Store
Tasty Restaurant

I would be thrilled if you’d consider contributing and becoming a part of this fun venture. I’d be happy to send you the testimonials/ reviews I’ve already gathered.
