    New Book by Idaho Author Wins National Humor Award

    Midlife Cabernet – Life, Love & Laughter after Fifty by local author Elaine Ambrose won the Silver Medal for Humor in the annual Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) competition that honors independent authors and publishers worldwide. More than 6,000 entries were judged in this year’s competition to recognize and reward independent spirit and creativity in publishing. Awards will be given on May 28 in New York City.

                  Midlife Cabernet was published by Mill Park Publishing of Eagle. Ambrose founded the company to publish works by local women writers and donate proceeds to local charities. This is the company’s second IPPY award, and Ambrose’s other books also have won a national humor award from ForeWord Magazine and five awards from recent competitions sponsored by the Idaho Book Extravaganza.

    “We are thrilled to receive another award to acknowledge quality books from Mill Park Publishing,” said Ambrose. “The success of Midlife Cabernet proves there are millions of middle-aged women who would rather laugh than break something, preferably while holding a bold Cabernet.”

    A national review by ForeWord Reviews wrote that, “Elaine Ambrose’s Midlife Cabernet is an Erma Bombeck-esque tribute to women who are over fifty and ready to explore life on new terms. It’s a humorous and sassy-yet-compassionate view of life over the hill, as well as a retrospective on the climb to the top. The writing and mechanics are solid, and the tone is cheerful and friendly.”

    In the past few years, Mill Park Publishing has donated more than $10,000 to local non-profit organizations and charities. Proceeds from the novel The Angel of Esperança by Judith McConnell Steele provided $1,000 to fund a Writer in the Schools teacher sponsored by The Cabin. Other recipients include Dress for Success Treasure Valley, the Women’s and Children’s Alliance, the West Valley YMCA, and the University of Idaho music program.

    Ambrose is the author of nine books, including the bestseller Menopause Sucks. Her blog “Midlife Cabernet” is featured on and on her web site Mill Park Publishing also organizes writer’s retreats throughout the year, and details are listed on Books are available from the web sites,, and local book stores.
