Hope Tour: Colorado

Only 17 days left in the Hope Tour 2012 Kickstarter campaign! Be sure to drop by our page, make a pledge, and get involved!

During the campaign, we're going to feature many of the towns on our tour. We're giving away a fun Hope Tour Gift Basket, so be sure to answer our questions for your chance to win!

After Rochester, we'll make our way through South Dakota (I can't go that far without a visit to the Badlands and Mount Rushmore, can I?) then onto Colorado where we'll visit several towns and many authors along the way. Among the authors we'll be meeting, greeting, and having some fun with include: Elsi Dodge, Michael Lee Joshua, Debra Ullrick, Renee Gray-Wilburn, and Dianne E. Butts. While we're in Colorado Springs, we'll also pop in at Kristine Pratt's awesome new bookstore The Written World. And I'm hoping we'll also be able to meet with many of the members of the ACFW Colorado group, too! Colorado is sure to be our busiest state yet!

We have some exciting news to share with you about some of the authors we'll meet in Colorado - but that will have to wait a few more weeks. Stay Tuned!

Now we need to hear from Colorado residents. Leave your answers in the comments below for a chance to win a special Hope Tour gift basket.

1) Who is your favorite local author and what does he/she write?

2) What ONE restaurant would you recommend for our Best Bites on Tour book? Remember, we don't want fancy-schmancy - just good food and hopefully a fun atmosphere, too. Be sure to tell us what kind of food it is, too.

3) What's ONE thing in your town we should not miss when we get there? This can be something touristy, or something off the beaten path - but something that represents your town like nothing else. If we took photos there, folks would know it could only be from your town.

4) Name THREE fun facts about your town. We may use these in a later post, but it will also help us get acquainted with your area.

Leave your answers in the comments below, and be sure to provide us with your e-mail address so we can contact you if you're a winner.

Be sure to stay tuned for events planned in your area.

Thanks for your help.

Check the Kickstarter page for all the different reward levels and pledge your support! We could hold a party in your honor (S'mores, pizza, or wienie roast, anyone?) If we make our goal, Kickstarter collects the money and we go on tour. If we don't make our goal, you won't lose a penny!

OMG I can't wait!! Looking forward to linking up with you on your tour!

You absolutely, positively have to eat a "Slopper" on your way through Pueblo. There are several great restaurants here that serve them so we'll have to decide. Can we get any other authors to drive to Pueblo for a Slopper???

If you haven't had one, you're definitely missing out.

I told Tim your description of a Slopper, and he said, "COUNT ME IN!!" Sounds like something we've both got to try!
