I'm officially announcing a new publication, Tiki Magazine. Some of you may have heard about it. I didn't want to make an official announcement before everything was in order. The magazine is going to be standard size (8 and 1/2" by 11"), full color cover, b/w on the inside with a color center section. I've been working hard on this for awhile. There are many TCers contributing to the magazine. There are so many talented people in the Tiki world and our hope is to spotlight them and give additional exposure. The first issue is coming out in April of 2005. The website is www.tikimag.net. The magazine will start out quarterly and if it is well received will come out more frequently. Subscriptions are available. One year (4 issues) for $12. Make check or money order payable to Tiki Magazine and send to 5663 Balboa Ave. Suite 398 San Diego, CA 92111. This magazine is being done with great passion and respect for the Tiki culture and all of you. Thank you to all the TCers who have helped in this project. I hope this makes your holiday season even brighter.

Nice going nicktiki. I wish you the best of luck with it. It's certainly a noble cause to all of us tiki freaks.

Great job, Nick! What's in store for the first issue, any clues? Inquiring minds want to know.

Hey guys!
I'd like to say that the ad spaces are very reasonable. I know I'll be putting an ad in every issue. It's a NO-BRAINER. I know this will be a quality magazine and a great place to market our creations, art, music, services, etc.

Anyone we know?

Sounds interesting. Is it a fanzine type thing or more of a moneymaking venture? Who's behind it? Who's providing the finance? Where is it going to be sold? The website doesn't give out that much info.

Sorry to sound like a suspicious arse, but it's a little difficult to gauge what angle you're coming from. I'm sure the secrecy is more to do with the fact that you don't want anyone else to steal the idea, but now that the mag is out in the open, perhaps you could fill us in a bit more.

I talked to Nick last week for some time about this new mag. I don't think its going to be any kind of "flash in the pan to make a buck" kind of operation. Its going to have some cool regular features - with articles by some of our very own here on TC. I won't divulge the details because I don't want to step on anybody's toes but I can say that I think we'll all be pleased!

I also had the opportunity to learn more from nicktiki about his new magazine, not because I'm anything special, but only because I happened to be in Tiki-Ti at the right time and struck up conversation with the right stranger. When we spoke, his concerns about keeping some of the details quiet had to do with making sure this cake is fully cooked before he serves it. This is a fun project mounted by a true tikiphile, and I look forward to seeing it.

I know that Nick does not expect to make a profit on the first issue and is forking out a lot out of his own pocket to do this. He's doing the magazine for his love of Tiki and to help us all and to spread the word. The magazine will spotlight Tiki bars, artists, carvers, bands and much more, but he needs to sell ads and subscriptions to make it possible. It's going to be great and I will help out any way I can.

OK - Great!

I guess that's the deal when you kick off a project - keep it hush hush to avoid anyone stealing the idea and risk suspicion when it kicks off or go the other way and allow less scrupulous types to rip off the grand concept.

If my fellow Tiki Centralites back it, that's good enough for me. I'll help out from here in Europe if you need me.

Hmm.. cheap ads, Would I be able to sell my spice blends or does it have to be 100% Poly related?

What other ones are there? Tiki News is pretty much on indefinite hiatus.
