Calling Idaho authors

Do we have news for you! Book Addicts has been so popular that the paper has agreed to give us two columns a month. Beginning in September, our column will print the first and third Sundays in the Life section. And to show our appreciation to all our readers, we are devoting the first Sunday column each month exclusively to Idaho authors.

Idaho has many gifted writers. We’ve been inundated with so many of your books that we realized to do your talent justice; we needed a column just for you. This means if you were born in Idaho, were raised in Idaho, or went to college in Idaho, we’re interested in profiling your book. On the other hand, if you great-aunt had a farm in Emmett you visited once a year, I’m afraid you’re out for this column. But don’t write us off, send your book anyway and it may make it in the second monthly column or onto our blog.

As you know, Book Addicts is devoted to fun reads. Books you can simply kick back and enjoy. But we will make exceptions for our Idaho column. If you wrote a book in any genre and would like us to consider it, go ahead and send it. We are so interested in highlighting Idaho authors we’ll expand our platform just for you.

The easiest way is to have your publicist or publisher email us an epub file to If you wish to send a hard copy, mail it to: Book Addicts, c/o Idaho Statesman, PO Box 40, Boise, ID 83707.
