Mill Park Publishing Donates $1,000 to WCA


Mother’s Wit Inspires
$1,000 Donation to Women’s and Children’s Alliance


 Mill Park Publishing of Eagle is donating $1,000 to the Women’s and Children’s Alliance in Boise in support of the organization’s child care programs. The donation comes from proceeds of the sale of the book, Mother Knows Best – Wit and Wisdom from Idaho Moms.


"The book is a delightful compilation of silly and serious words of advice that we've all heard from our mothers," said Elaine Ambrose, author and owner of Mill Park Publishing. "Local author Patti Murphy collected and edited the quotes, and next year we'll publish the sequel that will include quotes from across the country."


The Women’s and Children’s Alliance provides shelter and counseling for women and children who are fleeing domestic or sexual assault. The donation will help fund the on-site child care services for the children of women participating in the residential program.


Mill Park Publishing features local authors, produces books by women for women, and donates a portion of the sales to various local charities. The company won the national 2012 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) for a book titled Little White Dress – Women Explore the Myth and Meaning of Wedding Dresses. Sales from the sale of Little White Dress enabled Mill Park Publishing to donate $1,000 to Dress for Success Treasure Valley, an organization that provides low-income
women with clothes to wear to job interviews. Find additional information at
the company’s web site:


Nationally acclaimed author Alan Heathcock and Mill Park Publishing owner Elaine Ambrose were chosen as two of the Top Ten Idaho Authors by the Idaho Book Extravaganza.

After swilling their way through libations with literary women in Drinking with Dead Women Writers, authors AK Turner and Elaine Ambrose decided to give the men equal opportunity to belly up to the bar. Surprise! Many male authors were inebriated for much of their adult lives!

Join the authors as they drink with Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tennessee Williams, Edgar Allan Poe, and 12 others to explore the lives, work, and vice of these literary giants.

Premiere Party is Saturday, Nov. 17 at SpurWing Country Club in Meridian. The public is invited to attend and share in the literary laughs. Admission is $15 for an autographed book and appetizer buffet.  No-host bar.

The authors will share secrets about Jack London and John Cheever...
