Help Me to Celebrate the People that Celebrate Tiki!

Aloha All~

This is being posted as a request that you be a part of my dream of writing a book, not just any book but a Tiki Book, it will be a book of many parts, a majority of which will be recipes that I have gathered and collected over the years for food and drink. But what I think will make this book special is that I want to include within the book the people that have and share my love for things tiki. Someone asked once what does tiki, mean to you, and to me it means PEOPLE in a lot of ways. One of which is that Tiki means getting together to celebrate our love of tiki, and to celebrate we have gatherings and at these gatherings we have music, food, drinks. And that I guess that is the synopsis of what this dream book is about, but to make it truly what I hope and think it can be I need the help of the many wonderful tiki people everywhere who are willing to share their stories, pictures, and any other bits and pieces you would like send me to add to this project.

If you are willing and would like to be a part of this project please email me at
tiki_toa@yahoo.com or PM through TC and I will send you the form to fill out. Your information will not be used for any kind of spam or anything other then what I have mentioned above.

And for those that think I am planning on getting rich from this, I have had a number of conversations with Duke Carter about this idea and He made it very clear that to take it to a publisher not much will be profited from it. Which is fine, the lil bit I may make I will hopefully use to buy all that take part in the book a drink in the future when I have the chance to meet them.

Mahalo, Tiki Toa

And I apologize to those who I emailed before this post I did not mean for the email to look like a cross between spam & a marketing survey.

Also at this time the deadline is Dec. 1st

A big Mahalo to Benzart and Mr. Sam Gambino for being the first two to submit their profiles. And I look forward to getting more from others as time goes on. Also a big Mahalo to Raffertiki for the offer of doing art for the book and really adding a personal touch.

I swear you are some kind of crackpot. This stuff cracks me up!

Thanks, Tiki Toa. Again, I think that this is a great idea.

T-Toa,

I'll assist you with the "Bong" chapter (or complete book; I'll have my person talk to your people).

Bong ya know I really am glad you want to be a part of this, and I figure between all of the things you are involved with (ITD, The Screaming M's) you should be able to have at least 10 pages and I would love to publish all of them. PM me your email address so I can send you the form.

As a note there is no deadline, it is going to be a work in progress at this point. I need to follow through with Duke's advice and do up a Book Proposal and then submit to the names he is going to help me with when he can.
