Now that all the books are sold, I'm waiting to find out what the "secret project" Beau hinted to a few pages back. Cmon, Beau! Enquiring minds want to know!


Beau-ler? Beau-ler?

I've been working with Beau to create an ePub version of the book. It's about ready at this point, but I've got chronic back problems and I haven't been able to sit at my computer for more than a few minutes at a time the past week or so. As soon as it's released (hopefully very soon), we'll let everyone know!

Was doing a little googling on Dick Moano. Came across this on google books. Catalog of copyrights 1963. Looks like Dick's full name was Richard Moano Irwin.

Linky:

http://books.google.com/books?id=DB0hAQAAIAAJ&pg=PA1656&lpg=PA1656&dq=dick+moano&source=bl&ots=jBH5z4_JdB&sig=iEn35J9EFdGv_YjIroyarX_8ThM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=81cIVOi1KM7IgwSdkoCQAQ&ved=0CDwQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=dick%20moano&f=false

Just in case that didn't work.... I screen captured the entry:

Hi all,

Since the book is sold and not in print anymore, did anyone scan in the recipes? Or if not, is there still plans to do a ebook?

It's done! We had some technical difficulties with our distribution channel (read: I broke iTunes Connect), but the ebook is now available for FREE (Thanks, Beau!) at the iBook store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/official-islands-drink-guide/id904331408?mt=11

Cool. Nice of you and Beau to have done this. Looks like it's only available on Apple devices, though. Fortunatly, I purchased the book from Beau earlier...I was going to download it out of curiosities sake and take a look. I don't have any plans to purchase any Apple devices in the foreseeable future. Any plans on releasing it in any other format like Kindle or a .pdf file?

howlinowl, I can't speak for Beau, but my understanding is that it may be released in other formats at a later date.

Cool. One of the things I've never cared for Apple is they seem to be very proprietary. It works with Apple or not at all. Amazon has apps so that their books can be read on other devices (Android, Windows) so you aren't forced to purchase a Kindle device just to read your books.

You are in very good company, though. I've been lusting after Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's Tiki+ and now Total Tiki apps forever! iOS devices only, though so I guess I'm stuck with the books.

Add me to the list of disgruntled non Apple users who can't use this or the Tiki+ app!

I have a Galaxy phone, a Google tablet and a Kindle....insert sad face.

TikiTacky my Friend,

You are so Awesome for all the work and time you and some of your friends devoted to this project. It is truly a work of art. I appreciate it more than I can express. What an outstanding tribute to my Dad! Thank you so much. Those that download the book will see YOUR CONTRIBUTION and the others that contributed.
Mahalo - and we will talk soon.

Those of you that do download via Apple, remember the 5 Star Rule ***** The "RULE is that you have to give it 5 Stars!
Thanks again to all of you that have been along for this ride!!!!!

Ron "Beau" Turnbow

I went ahead and installed i-tunes and downloaded the book even though it won't let me open it on the computer. Even though I don't own any apple devices and don't forsee getting any in the near future, years from now they may come up with some 'I-Gizmo" that I just gotta have and then I'll have the book. Never know if it won't be available on i-tunes in the future.

Like I said before, I had purchased the original printing from Beau and am very happy with it.

I hope my earlier post didn't seem ungrateful for the time and effort put in by others to create the ebook and provide it for free. I don't know anything about epublishing. There may have been circumstances that made publication on a different format difficult or impossible. This project was taken on with the "aloha" spirit. Beau could have very well created the ebook and provided it for sale on i-tunes or kindle and probably made some extra spending money, instead he provided it without charge. I'm sure is father is smiling in heaven.
