Books left the printing presses by truck on Tuesday (May 29).

Due to arrive at the Santa Monica Press/Independant Publisher's Group warehouse on Friday.

People who ordered from me will have copies shipped Monday or Tuesday (June 4/5).

Amazon orders should ship some time next week... I can't say when (as long as it takes for the books to go from SMP's warehoue to Amazon's and then for the orders to br processed and shipped... a week or two?).

Official book debut event is at Hukilau - June 15.

I am working on signing events for: Tiki Oasis, Socttsdale, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh, Hot Rod Hula Hop, Chicago, Alameda, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Boston area.
NONE of these are confimed YET, nor are there firm dates yet.

But it from me in person, or buy it here:

Mahalo nui nui once again for all of the enthusiasm and support for this project!

Is Dallas on the radar?

Any chance of doing the signing night at the DVA Gallery's tiki night this year? Might be a nice tie in for both of you.

Anxiously awaiting my copy...

I will be at the DvA show for sure, and will have some books with me (I always keep a case of 'em in my car!).
As for signing at the show, "officially", that little gallery (size matters not - it rocks!) is going to be so crammed full o' people that night, that I'm not sure that there will be any room for me to set up a table...!
We'll see...

As for Dallas, I would adore an excuse to come down and do something at the new Trader Vic's.
I will PM you with the details.
Anyone else who thinks an event in their town is a good idea, please PM me with your 'proper' email address (one I can send a PDF to).

Tiki Road Trip 2 has reached the Chicago warehoue of Independant Publishers Group, who distribute all of the books published by Santa Monica Press.

I will have books in hand Wednesday morning.

Pre-orders will be mailed by the end of the week.

See y'all at Hukilau for the big public debut of the Tiki Road Trip 2!

Ladies and Germs, as you all know, Tiki Road Trip 2 will be in your hot little hands in less than a month.

Tiki Road Trip has been called "The book I wish I wrote" by Charles Bukowski, Kurt Vonnegut, John Steinbeck, Hunter S. Thompson, and George Orwell (not really... but if any of them were alive, they surely WOULD HAVE said this).

Although "Tiki Road Trip" is a really freaking great title for a book, "Tiki Road Trip: 2nd Edition" doesn't really pop as well as it could.




What is the snappy new title?

"Tiki Road Trip: 2nd Edition"

(altough I liked your idea of The Luau Locator!)

The eagle has landed (or perhaps, the Kon-Tiki has landed!).

Point is: I have 180 copies of TRT2 in my living room, and there are 4820 more in the IPG warehouse.

Tiki Road Trip 2 is being mailed to pre-orders tomorrow, and Hukilau attendees will be able to pick up a copy at my first TRT2 book signing, right after my seminar on Friday, June 15. The seminar is from 3:30 to 4:15, and the book signing is immediately after that, until 6:30.

I am very pleased with the way this book came out.
It is a huge leap forward from TRT 1 in every respect, and I honestly think that if you liked TRT 1, you'll be suitably impressed enough with TRT 2 to update your library.
And if you were on the fence about the first edition, this one ought to tip you inot the realm of true believers!

I was in NYC visiting friends last week and we went to Brooklyn's Zombie Hut. Upon learning I was from Chicago, the attractive bartender started telling me about the psychology of tiki in the midwest. Asked how she knew all of this, she told me that she had spent hours chatting with "the guy who wrote a book about taking a tiki road trip." James, it's nice to know you spread the gospel while doing your research!

Pre-order copies were mailed out last Thursday; they should be arriving soon (if not already -- sent Media Mail -- kinda slow).

I'll have 135 copies with me at Hukilau this weekend.
The official book signing is at about 4:15-ish on Friday at the Yankee Clipper, right after my 3:30 seminar. It'll wrap up about 6:30.

mahalo
